Very disappointing that when my lunch arrived it had black pepper on the roast potatoes and veg. When I asked for some without it went back to the kitchen your staff came back and said that is how they are cooked. So I asked for them to be removed from my plate as black pepper upsets my stomach. She offer to replace potatoes with mash to which I said yes thank you. She then took the plate back to the kitchen where the Yorkshire pudding disappeared and it wasn’t mash that came back but boiled potatoes and your staff advised that the kitchen had said the roast veg would be the same and if I had an issue with it I should have let you know before I arrived. I have had Sunday lunch in a lot of places and never had an issue. If it was mentioned on the menu that your veg is seasoned with black pepper I would have said something. This issue meant I didn’t enjoy my dinner as not having the full lunch. We also ordered pudding. And I ordered your chocolate brownie to have you staff come out and say sorry we have run out of vanilla ice cream and offered choices. The whole meal which was a 70th Birthday for my Dad was a bit wrecked for me. As I wasn’t eating my food with everyone else. Surely if you are using things that can cause people issues you need to clearly state that do that choices can be made. If I had realised this was the case we won’t have booked to come for Sunday lunch

We were unhappy with how COVID rules were not being fully complied with. Sanitiser almost empty on arrival. We were sat next to another table of guests who had just arrived. We asked to be moved to be able to maintain social distance which they happily complied with but then sat a further party between us and the other guests when there was room in the restaurant to be able to keep everyone distanced safely. Also we were not asked to complete any information with regard to Track and Trace.

Disappointing Sunday Roast. Visited on 13th September as a treat with my elderly parents. Three of us had roast pork and one the roast beef. The portions generally were very small and the pork had been cut so thinly - almost wafer thin as you might use in sandwiches, not what you would expect for a roast dinner. The roast potatoes were overcooked and quite dry, as if they had been left standing keeping warm for a period of time. The other elements of the dinner were tasty, but overall we have had better elsewhere. On our visit we felt some concern over the Covid safety measures too; some tables, including ours, were still too close to others, and the one-way system wasn't adhered to or enforced, although hand gel was provided at the entrance and exit. A shame, but still some improvements needed I think.

Really nice experience. Booked so we could meet my Son for Sunday lunch. Needed somewhere dog-friendly. Food, drink and welcome we’re all spot-on. Will definitely be back.
