We have had an annual get together for around 16 people for the past 3 years. The food has been good and staff friendly. Perhaps slightly expensive for older folk but we haven't been rushed and been able to have a quiet area so we can chat.

Myself and my partner visited here and had a great starter and evening meal mid week. The place wasn't very busy but it was ok with a pleasant atmosphere. Having said that we visited a second time for a sunday lunch but the food wasn't as consistent. The food was tasty but luke warm. Towards the end of the meal... More

Dear Paul S, I am pleased to hear you have had a nice experience with us. I am concerned, however, regarding you poor experience with us on a Sunday Lunch. Check backs should be done as part of our system and though we do pride ourselves in ensuring every table does receive a check back, down to human error we... More

Food is always delicious, cooked as it should... More

This is a nice big comfortable chain pub-restaurant with wonderful staff and a menu that has a reasonable selection of vegetarian choices (although only one meatless sandwich option; cheese and chutney...yawn) but the prices are reasonable and as the restaurant is part of a chain, the menu is not their fault. The excellent service more than compensates.
