Been here quite a lot of times. Food good value for money and sweets to die for. Staff friendly, only thing I find wrong is the place is looking a bit dreary now don't feel as comfy eating here seems dark and dreary. Also as I have worked in catering for over 30 years, I feel that the cutlery on... More

I frequent this establishment quite regularly (so my online banking app tells me!) - The food here is really cheap, but of a high quality. Everyone knows they make money on the beer or desserts, etc, so don't complain about the price of the food thinking its 'cheap for a reason', etc. The roasties are top notch.

There isn't much to say about this place really... the food is very good, the prices are very cheap and the staff are friendly. On a work night, it's a great place to go to relax for a bit when you don't fancy cooking! For 13 quid for two carvery's and two cokes you won't get the Earth, but for... More

Been to this restaurant a few times and overall the food is good value. However have had a few issues with one female member of staff ( tall short hair) on one occasion when ordering wine was given a beer glass and told very rudely that there were no wine glasses. When I got to the front of the queue... More

My mother in law lives nearby so Julie and I regularly take Joan for a Carvery. We love this place. Julie occasionally gets deals for this chain of pub food so we get a very good carvery for half the price sometimes. Loads of succulent meat and veg cooked the way we like it. Compliments to the chefs.

The Food Was Very Good But It Was A Little Embarrassing Watching The Server Trying To Cut The Meats As Thin As Possible I For One Would Gladly Pay A Little Extra For Each Of The Levels You Do, I Will Say Though The Half Chicken Is Very Good Value
