It is the same menu as ten years ago, and the same high quality and professionalism, thankfully. I really hope they never change it.

We visited as a large group of 14. We were made to feel very welcome and all our needs were catered for. The carvery offers a huge variety of foods not just the standard meat and veg. You can have pie, cobbler, stew type dishes as well as meat. You can also visit more than once so is outstanding value... More

Not my first visit and definitely not my last. The carvery is excellent lots of choice and you can select more than one. The choice of vegetables are something else, some old favourites but others unusual combinations all guaranteed to get your taste buds salvating. Add the lovely relaxed atmosphere and it's perfect lunch or dinner. There's a comprehensive sweet... More

We called here with family and the food and the service was very good. It was a sunday evening and there was either a carvery or Fresh Whitby Cod and chips. All the food that we purchased was very good especially the code that I had. Would definitely visit this place again.

Apart from the unwelcoming staff, the tired carpet, the literally crummy seats and shabby walls (why wouldn't you get a paint brush out to hide the chips, the shadow of pictures once hung and the mold on the walls, big enough in one place to be mistaken for a graphic), apart from all that, judging from the plate loads people...
