Delicious food in friendly atmosphere. Booked a table online for group 8 friends. The owner Stan took trouble to ring me to check details. Don't be put off by the 70s window dressing! The restaurant inside is great. Good service too.

Welcoming staff and very chatty chef. Soup tasty and carvery plentiful. Vegetables too cooked for me, but gravy excellent. Eclectic mix of items on display. Overall a good meal, wine prices reasonable and wine good. Would visit again.
