It seems to be run by an English couple who know their roast beef and Yorkshire pud! I think there were 3 or 4 portions of vegetables and lots of small roast spuds. Very good value and you wont get up hungry. Enjoy.

Once again Sunday lunch here never let's us down, consistently excellent year in year out. Always made welcome variety of drinks, booked for next Sunday already.

A typical Brit restaurant and bar with a great view. Solid Britiish style food. Had an evening meal which was tasty enough. Service was painfully slow sadly. Almost an hour for the meal to arrive. Reasonably priced. Friendly staff.
