Just stopped here for lunch, got a very nice pint but told that and food orders would be 30 minutes, so we didn't order. There was just one woman behind the bar and a colleague who couldn't sell beer because they were underage! We therefore spent an age at the bar. Oh yes and no wifi. Won't be going back.

Called in for an early doors drink, on a Friday night. Wondered why it was empty! Flat lager (no branded glasses with widget), no beer mats, no internet, massive TV on with no sound. However there was an open fire with loads of comfortable leather settees. Bar staff were lethargic and uninterested in positive feedback. Could be a great place,... More

What a breath of fresh air. You would go far and wide to beat it. The service, the food, meat and sides were all first rate. We had a family gathering there for 12. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, and as I say the food was perfect. If I could pick any one thing as a constructive... More

We have been here on a 3 or 4 occassions and really enjoyed the carvery. There is a very wide selection of meats and vegetables available and all cooked beautifully. The menu itself is also appealing and which we thought we may try sometime. However that was before today and hence the reason i havent given the place 5 stars.... More

We have eaten from the Deli menu on two occasions at lunchtime recently and everything has been delicious. Good size portions and comfy seats makes it an ideal place to meet up with friends and we've booked for their Carvery at Christmas too.

I had lunch here yesterday to celebrate my birthday with three friends and it was a lovely afternoon. We had a drink first on the comfy sofas at 12.00 noon then we went through to our table at 12.30pm. The carvery was delicious, a choice of five meats and many vegetables, we were very full but we all managed to... More
