This is a great stop for Sunday lunch . While it serves the usual lunch menu , roast beef / chicken etc , portions are enormous and the food is always piping hot . In fact , I've often almost burnt myself with the mashed potato . They do a 3 course steak special as well which is great value... More

We've passed by the Road House many times always promising to try it out. We finally did yesterday evening and what a gem we discovered! The food was delicious, so fresh and tasty and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff was superb. A definite recommendation and we'll certainly be back!

The staff were rude, overheard one of the waitresses say 'they cant just turn up like that', we were a coach of about 40 !! Their adverts suggest you can just turn up !! The waitresses proceeded to stomp around in a most angry manner......their body language was atrocious, you two waitresses (think you know who you are) should work... More
