Had the 3 course Carvery meal in the dining room. It was a spacious room, not too noisy, well serviced and very reasonable. We had a choice of 3 types of Roasts and all were nicely cooked and not overcooked. I would recommend to families as the meals are so reasonable and there is plenty of choice.

Booked for a la carte but our table was in the carvery area and only laid out with a paper napkin and knife & fork. No cloth, no glasses, no water. We ordered our meals and 2 serves of garlic bread. We sat for at least 30 mins and had to ask where our garlic bread was. It was cooked... More

Dined in the a la carte part of the restaurant. Shared the seafood platter. Good fresh ingredients. Good value. If you like sweets; don't hold back, go for the Lemon Tart. Sooo delicious. Lovely ladies who served us, ever so helpful.
