We had a brilliant Sunday Roast here, I had the pork, my partner had the lamb. Trimmings includes fresh veg, swede, mash, duck fat roasties, Yorkshire pudding and the best ever rich gravy. Followed up with beautiful treacle tart and carnation milk ice cream. Outstanding.

Excellent food and service in a country-style atmosphere. I like going for dinner and family Christmas time lunches.

Late booking for evening meal. We all had the roast meals and desserts. I would have liked the food to be a little warmer. Warm welcome and good food.

Went to this place with a large group of friends. Fantastic steak, wonderful sides (truffle chips are a must) and great service. Would highly recommend if you're in the area!

First off we had an excellent evening. The service was extremely efficient and friendly and, almost uniquely in our experience, they actually make an effort to accommodate a vegetarian who doesn't like the veggie dishes on offer so really top marks for customer service for...More

Yes. We have eaten at both lunchtime and evening here and both services were of the same quality. We had a Christmas Eve lunch here this week and it was just fabulous.
