Food was warm, not much taste. Cauliflower and cheese is worth trying. The place is Understaffed. The staff that do exist are very polite. Maybe worth trying once but I doubt I’ll ever return.

Had been recommended to visit for the carvery but found the whole visit disappointing. Cold plates, cold and poor selection of vegetables and gravy topped off with inedible chips to accompany a nice sirloin steak. Unfortunately desert was just as unsatisfactory; blackened and burnt treacle...More

Arrived at 12:30 with no reservation. Was seated quickly with no fuss. Joined a small queue for the carvery which seemed to be caused by people serving themselves with vegetables. Was given a healthy portion from a choice of two meats. I eat a lot...More
