This place is very beautiful and the carvery is out of this world,it would be advisable to book as it does get busy on a sunday but it is worth it as the scenery is so breathtaking even on a rainy sunday in march but the place is relaxing and the food is quality and they have friendly staff.

Not disappointed for the price and that it's a chain pub. Staff good, food good and a cosy, comfy room.

Have visited several times & never been disappointed. At the moment they have a separate menu where you can choose a main for £6 ( it's just gone up from £5) & then have a choice of starter or sweet for £2 each. The only thing is you have to visit noon- 5pm to claim this offer. Lovely staff &... More

We went to the Cot today for a Carvery. On arrival the car parked was rammed which was encouraging. The interior had certainly improved since our last visit and had benefitted from new lighter carpets and paintwork. The venue was busy which was a good sign. The majority of seating booths in the restaurant been fashioned front old wooden pallets... More
