Booked a table online so straight in, drinks ordered at the table took a while to arrive. Colouring sheets and pens for the kiddies so nice touch. Very long slow moving queue but fair enough as popular Sunday lunchtimes. Ordered lamb shank but is was off the menu -they had run out. Shredded cabbage in bottom of dish was brown,... More

Went here for a quick meal on a Thursday and went early. Bit of luck as after 7pm it was rammed. The arrival is not the most welcoming, perhaps the house manager had a bad day, but we didn't have to wait long to be seated. The food is standard carvery but meat is well cooked. You can load up...

This place is very popular. The staff are really good particularly Sarah and are stretched to the limit at lunchtime. The food however did appear dried out and lack luster. There was plenty of choice but if the vegetables were turned regularly then the dried appearance could be avoided. There are not enough staff checking the dishes to be replenished.... More

Went here with my partner for Sunday lunch, and can't describe it other than OK. Bar staff took ages to serve, and the queue for the food took us about ten minutes. Out of gravy, out of cabbage and usual mass production.

The lunch time carvery is shocking. To start, everything inside the restaurant is sticky, which is just gross. Then at the carvery they are very selfish with the meat and only give you 3 very very thin slices. From there you've got about 4 vegetable choices and it all tops off with extremely watery gravy. It's just gross. Avoid this... More
