Amazing place. We all had the carvery. Huge portions and go back as often as you want. Dessert included in price and that was huge too. Food was delicious and very well cooked. Only downside is no car park.

We stopped here for a late meal on our way back to London. The staff was exceptionally welcoming and friendly. The meal was hearty. I recommend spending more time here and having more than one pint.
