We visited here with friends for Sunday lunch after reading the positive reviews and what a treat it was! All 4 roast dinners were great. Good portion sizes, well cooked, fresh ingredients all served with great service too. Highly recommended and we'll definitely be back.

I would give them a call and ask. I know they are very popular at lunch times on weekends. You might need to book a table for Sunday lunch.
