Been for lunch , food good , good value for money , staff nice , but not the place to be if you wanted a relaxed Sunday lunch as very loud , and felt a bit rushed , did not help with sky sports going on and people not eating just there for sky !!!

I normally go the bricklayers at least one a month for Sunday lunch. The restaurant area is a little cramped but the food and service are always first rate. Excellent value for money and i've never had a bad meal here. In my opinion the best Sunday lunch in the area.
