Took over the restaurant on Sat night for my 50th Birthday. The food was fantastic, as was the service. Extremely good value. A great time was had by all. Thankyou to Chef and all the lovely waitresses for making everything run so smoothly.

Went for a Sunday Lunch Carvery today. Small but packed...you must book. Great service, friendly staff, amazing roast dinner (and I'm a bit of a food snob) and a delicious dessert. Would recommend for a family meal or with friends
