went here with my son on Weds as he knew I had never been as he went with his friend and his friends father the weekend and he enjoyed it. The staff were exceptionally nice and made us feel so at house, the landlady (I assume was her) came over twice. When I enquired about the children eat free they... More

We arrived about 5pm, as we noticed they do a carvery every day all day. What a lovely reception from the staff, They were very booked as they also do half price meals from their main menu on Mondays from 5pm till 8pm.

Every review needs updating,and a return here was well worth the visit. A warm welcome on entering by a polite lady who checked our pre booked table,showing to the table and explaining the menu. Choose off the menu first,then order at the bar,and pay,simple. An extensive menu ,with a popular car very at only£5.99 on evenings and £4.99 in day.... More

Second time of visiting since recent refurbishment. Much improved set up of carvery avoiding queuing past people eating as previously. Excellent meal. Cheerful competent staff. Will be returning soon

Visited here for lunch Friday. Carvery is ok an well priced at £4.95. Good serving of meat and plenty of vegetables. Drinks at average prices. Only complaint is that it is a bit like dining in a canteen, but other than that good value for a roast dinner.

Visited for a family birthday. We all had a carvary. The chef was brilliant!! Very funny and was a pleasure to be around. The food was hot and lots of selection of meats and vegetables and sauces. There are 2 plate sizes available and children's too. Book your table as it gets very busy on Sundays. Great atmosphere and friendly... More
