Went for carvery. Nothing special. Gravy tasted like browning granules and food wasn't particularly plentiful or tasty. Lamb was super thin slices (thin as deli meat) and even at £9.50 it was an extra pound for a Yorkshire pudding and an extra pound for two...More

Went for an evening meal with family. Decor is non descriptive but clean. Menu is typical pub food. A couple of the items weren’t on the menu which was disappointing. I had Stilton and broccoli soup which was slightly too thick. The scampi was lovely....More

Their advertising says they are "award-winning". That must be the building, not the food. It’s basic pub food, with limited vegetarian choice. The broccoli was over cooked, while the roast parsnip was so raw I could not cut it with a knife. The beef was...More
