We came here on Saturday evening after reading the good reviews. It was very quiet and we were met by helpful pleasant staff. The food was excellent and served very hot. Young waitresses were happy and smiley and nothing to much trouble.

The Sunday carvery here is well worth the money. The service is good with friendly staff and the food is cooked to perfection. I would certainly go there again and so would my husband and Mother.
