I don’t normally venture out for meals on Mother’s Day but this year my own daughters were either working or away so my sister invited me out with her family. We often go to this establishment for our own family celebrations and it holds dear memories of my late husband and father who both loved the food here. Today as expected it was exceptionally busy, on Sundays you are usually allocated a one and a half hour slot at your table however due to the amount of people things were running late when we arrived at 4.30 and we had to wait 15 minutes to be seated. The queue for the carvery stretched almost to the entrance when we joined it but we were happy to go with the flow. The food is always very good, I’ve never had a bad meal here. The meat is cooked to perfection and there is a wide choice of what I call ‘real’ veg, by that I mean mashed carrot and swede, roast parsnips, cauliflower cheese and greens. Every meal comes with Yorkshire pudding, stuffing and sausage. As a recent convert to vegetarianism, on this occasion I ordered the nut roast -it was absolutely delicious. It is essential to book for any Sunday as it is a very popular venue. The atmosphere in the pub is warm and cosy and I would highly recommend it but probably better on an ordinary weekend.
