We had a leisurely Saturday afternoon of food, wine & girls chat. Perfectly pleasant. We'll be sure to return. We sat in the conservatory which was nice, not too cramped & the food was lovely.

Mixed reports heard about the Calfs Head but on our visit a pleasant experience. The menu is pretty eclectic but features all the pub favourites, and portion sizes are generous. Staff cannot be faulted - extremely friendly and excellent service. Enjoyed the Worston Whale!

Sorry, I can't answer as we did not have the carvery. I think they have a website with a menu so you should be able to look it up quite easily. It would probably be better to book if you do decide to go. There is good... More
