Came here for a carvery and stayed for the pub quiz. The girl with the brown hair behind the bar is really helpful and a good laugh for the quiz (even is she can't pronounce things)

sunday carvery here is lovely and reasonably priced, never been disappointed. would say come early as it does get full and if your disabled you might want to go elsewhere as toilets are upstairs and a lot of different levels even on ground floor.
