Drinks and food were served... More

Have been a few times now whilst on holiday in the area, and it never fails us. We were going to have the carvery but it looked a bit dried out, so we ate off the main menu. I had the ploughmans, which was perfect, and my husband had the pie, which was piping hot and he thoroughly enjoyed. We... More
