Found this place by accident, and what a great accident it was. Decided to book a party for my daughter, all very well handled and dealt with. Despite obviously having a shortage of staff on the day, the staff who were there made the best of a situation not in their hands and really excelled in making us feel welcome.... More

Having been to Larkstone many times we booked for the Carvery today. A wonderful atmosphere greeted us with a live jazz 'band' playing. Although service was slow we were treated to a lovely fresh selection of meat and veggies (the Yorkshire puddings are divine as is the gravy). Defo worth the £8 for adults and £4.50 for kids. We would... More

Lovely little spot. We came across this place by accident and so glad we did. Had a lovely afternoon sat outside. We only had drinks so can't comment on the food. But a great place for families.

Great location, lots to see and do for children. Food nice, on the down side service very slow, we waited 45mins for our lunch and it wasn't very busy, portions on small side for the prices charged. On the upside the kiddies menu was freshly cooked and arranged lovely on the plates. Example of meal: large fry up - was... More
