We often have Sunday lunch here and can honestly say it’s the best anywhere . Roast potatoes to die for. Quick friendly service, hot plates, small and large portions and a great choice of meats.

12 persons. Excellent atmosphere, Rod the landlord serenading the ladies! (What a charmer)! Excellent evening all round with good service and great food! Just be careful ordering starters. Main courses very large! Lovely night! Recommend.
