We have been here many times at different times of the day. There is always a good selection of food and beverages and friendly helpful service. We particularly get led astray by their tempting looking cakes and desserts. It can get quite busy and at these times you may have to wait longer but you can always amuse yourself by... More

Very good food and plenty of it. Friendly service. Prices are very competitive. Well worth a visit, but, try not to go at lunchtime, it gets very busy. It may be advisable to book a table in advance, just to be sure.

We came here for my Mum's birthday lunch and were really impressed. The welcome was warm and table all ready for us to be seated. The orders were taken promptly by a friendly waitress and the food came pretty quickly too. The menu has mainly "English" fayre on it which is what makes it so popular I think. I had... More

9 family & friends met up for a post wedding celebration Sunday carvery today. The service was smiley, fast and welcoming. The food was fabulous...but on the down side, some of the plates were dirty and the food was not as hot as you would expect, probably due the entrance door placed in the front of the serving area. No... More

Had the carvery on a Sunday - pretty busy. Choice of 3 meats and a large range of vegetables, all nice and hot, and neither undercooked or overcooked. Plates of a resonable size. Considering the quality of the food, and the range of veg, size of plate, price is pretty competitive. I've had better carveries, but they have been more... More

Booked a lunchtime table for six, which included four in their eighties. Unfortunately this meant ' can't eat this, this gives me blah, blah blah, etc.' Despite the numerous dietary requests for this and that, the food was excellent and very good service. The menu is very extensive and appears to be cooked to order with nice fresh ingredients. Good... More

Stopped for lunch on a beautiful sunny Saturday we both decided on liver and onions ordered a drink (table service) shortly meal arrived plenty on liver and onions topped off with a lovely slice of bacon and a tasty gravy with peas and chips. .chips were okay but meal would have been much tastier with mash or even boiled potatoes
