Having just returned from a weekend away we wanted a quick budget lunch opting for here over Toby - mistake!

Had I wanted so much water I'd have ordered a pint of it rather than my food being boiled to bits.

I went for the beef which was okayish. There was 3 choices of potato, a Cajun baby which was boiled to bits, some mash which was tasteless as were the boiled potato.
There was a pot of green water, advertised as mushy peas... never ever had that been a Pea!
No sign of broccoli, green cabbage, normal peas, beans or sprouts. No doubt they'd be boiled within an inch of their life, would have been nice to have seen more veg choices.

I don't know who is in charge of the buying, but could I ask that you season as you cook as over boiled food without seasoning is an awful thing.

Me and 6 family members went for a birthday meal and what a fantastic night. Food arrived promptly and all together even though there were quite a few of us. The food was delicious and enjoyed by us all. The cakes are amazing and we all took advantage of the cakeaway service. A huge thank you to Emma, ( with the glasses), and Leah...you are brilliant! Can’t wait to return! ⭐️⭐️

Went out for a family meal for my mums birthday... what a fantastic night! The food was delicious and the service exceptional. As usual the cakes were to die for. Couldn’t fault anything at all and will definitely be back. Thank you Emma for making the night that bit more special .

I ordered the mix and match, southern fried chicken which was very crunchy and 2 gammon steaks which were black on one side. Food should not be black unless it is a blackpudding
