Called today for OAP carvery. at just £3.49 this was very good value. Beef and Turkey were both well cooked and tender, a big improvement on previous visits when I have been critical of the both overcooked and undercooked veg and meats. If it remains at this higher standard I will continue to eat at this local carvery

Went to the Rufford this lunchtime & decided to have £3.99 carveries. We were given ample meat which was very nice & of course we put as many vegetables on our plate as we wanted. Couldn't fault it for value for money. The staff were very pleasant.

We came to the Rufford for a meal and a catch up with friends of mine. We ordered starters and main courses as we were quite hungry. We waited about 40 mins for our starters to arrive and when they did the 2 portions of garlic bread that we ordered came on the same plate. We were baffled by this... More
