Despite being midweek it was very busy so patience is required after placing your order with very helpful and efficient staff. Soft drinks seemed rather expensive but maybe my memory is failing. The meals were very good - rack of ribs with a sweet bbq sauce,... More

Very poor value for money came here with family in March for sunday dinner, I ordered the roast beef dinner. what I got was sliced processed beef, something you would expect in a sandwich not in a sunday dinner. I would have least expected a carvery.

We booked here for lunch half way round on our walk. All seemed well organised and we were greeted well and escorted to a table. The food and drinks arrived fine. I had the ham egg and chips. There was a lot of ham and very small eggs. The ham tasted a bit fatty and I left half of it.... More
