We came for a Sunday roast, we ordered the Beef roast and triple roast. The beef was dry. The stuffing was beautiful. But generally the meal was bland. The beers were very good, i think they must keep the beer system well maintained.

Hi Sarsonuk, We do have a regimented cellar of beer controls! Glad you noticed! I hope the beef is more to your liking next time! :) Thanks for the kind words.... Kind Regards
