Grumpy barman took our order and really couldn't have cared less. A selection of dry looking and overcooked meats on offer. Chose the half chicken. Large portion. The vegetables were all overcooked. When I ate the food it was just completely tasteless and the vegetables were just as bad and so soft. The child with us had something purporting to... More

We have been to the restaurant several times before it was refurbished and had the best carvery around the area. Today we decided to take our 8 yr old grandson. He chose the turkey which was placed on his plate in chunks which didn't look very nice I gave him some stuffing which I found very hard to get out... More

Not much change in decor, had a re-paint, layout very similar to before. Popped in over late lunch time and had the carvery myself, hubby had the pie. Both very enjoyable, reasonable priced for a 2 course meal. Has other menu choices including pizza and burgers. Help yourself to veg etc so no need to be hungry. Friendly and helpful... More

Friendly with helpful and welcoming staff. Sensible decision to do pizzas and carvery, both done well and much better than too extensive a menu which can't then be delivered well. Glad we made the decision to eat here when we visited Dobbies nearby.

Me and my partner went for an early tea time meal on a Thursday. Wasn't overly busy but there was people in. The serving staff were quick and efficient. It was the first time we had been since it had changed to a Stonehouse Restaurant and we were very impressed. Food was served quickly and the choice of unlimited salad,... More

However the food was really poor, I ordered a Chicken wings starter which only had 5 wings on it, It should have had 8... More
