The staff seem friendly, the building is nice and there's an outdoor area, though this is right next to a road. We'd go back if we were meeting friends for a drink, but wouldn't eat there again. The portions were huge and it wasn't inedible, but I'd liken it to what I'd expect from a run down park cafe. The... More

We had lunch here recently, very nice food, the portion sizes are huge. The place has a nice atmosphere and good service. Only complaint from my fiancé was that the BBQ ribs should be advertised as 'ribs with BBQ sauce' instead as they weren't actually barbecued. The desserts are also nice, we recommend the chocolate pudding.

We arrived just in time for lunch here. It was great and the staff were efficient and friendly. We then had a good walk in the grounds of Scotney Castle which is very close. It was a wonderful Spring treat and we will definitely return. We heard that the Senior's lunches are very good.

Great place for a carvery as we have been coming here for years now. Value for money for a Sunday roast. Will need to queue for food if it's busy!

Another good meal at this lovely pub/restaurant. My only reason for not giving it full marks is because most meals came with chips or mash. Plus there was no salad as a main meal. However, our party all enjoyed their experience.
