Great except the roast potatoes which were very very dry. Shame, the rest if it was great. Good wine and beer, friendly staff, reasonable value but for the roasties it would have been a very good meal.

Lovely meal at the Smokey I have lactose intolerance and the staff are always very helpful with suggestions, you only have to ask and they suggest an alternative. Plenty of choice whether a lite bite or 3 courses. Choice of the restaurant or the conservatory.
