Usual pub grub menu & prices but with a bit more class. 3 of us went at lunchtime on Friday and we hadn't booked but were seated quickly. Service was good. Food was excellent. The place became quite full in a short time. There is also a bar area for those not wanting a formal sit down meal. Large car... More

My wife and I visited whilst staying at the travel lodge, we were served by Yvonne who was very friendly. We had the carvery which was possibly the best we've had. We will definitely return whenever we are in the area.

The food here was a bit disappointing. The pastry on a steak and ale pie wasn't very well cooked, my battered fish had a hard bit in the middle. Two of our party were less than impressed with their dessert and the other meals were very average. The ser vice was OK.

On first impressions from the outside it looked warm and welcoming but the real jewel in the crown was the inside with it's warren of seating areas all furnished to a very high standard. The atmosphere was... More

We were celebrating a family member's birthday. It was very busy and reservation is highly recommended. Six of us had the carvery (choice of 3 meats), one had mussels in a Thai green sauce and a child had a kid's portion of fish and chips for mains. Only disappointment was the roasted potatoes, which had very little crispness! Excellent range... More

This restaurant was very busy on a Saturday night & pays to book a table. I had the sea bass which was perfectly cooked & my partner had the classic burger - homemade burger & very tasty with sweet potatoes fries. Waiter very chatty & friendly. Modern restaurant & lots to choose from on the extensive menu. Definitely will be... More
