This is a warm and friendly place suitable for families, couples, or anyone that enjoys good food and first class service at a great price. The menu is very well balanced and includes vegetarian and vegan options. Lots of options and a great 'help yourself'...More

Lovely food with immense portion sizes which kept me very happy after a long day of sightseeing. The service was very good as well with the waitress actually taking time to suggest places to visit during our trip.

I went for a meal here based on a recommendation from someone who visited when this was a Harvester restaurant. However, it is under new ownership as 'The Ploughman's Table' and it appears they have little experience in the pub business. Pints were around £3.50,...More
