Always a fantastic sunday afternoon. The food and service is why we come back time and time again. Nothing is ever a problem! even when i forget how many people are eating and have to call up to add more people 10 minutes before our booking!! Dog freindly and a real family feel no matter where you are from local or far. Thanks team

Very disappointed with the food. It was luke warm and the lamb was inedible even though it was returned and changed. First time it was raw and the second time the lamb was as tough as old boots. We were offered a complementary desert but declined when the 'seasonal' crumble was described as pineapple and mango with a coconut topping. We were expecting local or English fruit like apple and blackberry not seasonal tropical fruits ! Not happy and would not recommend or go back.

This is a first-class eatery in every sense of the word! The staff were attentive and although incredibly busy were always able to use the "eye contact" and say that they'd be with us in a minute!

Lovely evening with friends at the S & C made special by a warm welcome, choice of table (we had pre-booked) and comfortable seating arrangement in a dining area of the eatery/ pub where we had not been before. Food was fabulous although we thought the number of choices of starters and mains was not as large as we had experienced before. None-the-less the waitress was keen to explain the 'specials' and one of our party did select from this.One member of our party raved over the smoked mackerel scotch egg for starters and said that the salmon dish from the 'specials' board was cooked to perfection. The beef and ale pies went down a treat as did the starters of Yorkshire Chorizo Risotto and the generous portion of Belly Pork with an interesting crumble. I have given 4 stars for service, and would have given 5 had there not been a long wait for drinks at the table and one member of the party had to go to the bar in the end to inquire as to the whereabouts of the drinks. Saying that, we were offered tap water for the table without hesitation and, two finger-marked knives were swiftly taken away and replaced when pointed out. Staff were courteous and helpful and we felt that the timing of serving of the courses was perfect. We will be back!

We were sitting in the back room onto the drive to the car park. We were the last table in a row. The tables were FAR too close - our table was 25cms from the next table making it very difficult to get out and completely impossible to have a semi private conversation. We used to visit you often, but I will think seriously before returning.

excelente food, and service, a fantastic evening out! If I had to have a criticism the only thing I could say is that the lighting was a little dark to read the menu on arrival. Mobile phone torch solves that problem though so don’t let that put you off!

Service took forever. It was obvious that there was a problem with staffing both on the restaurant and in the kitchen. The food although acceptable was not great. Such a shame for a lovely venue.

Fantastic meal and service. Our waitress was great and made the meal with two young kids really enjoyable! The Roasts dinners are one of the best we have had, with more than enough food Would definitely recommend.

They venue was extremely busy and the staff seemed a bit hectic. We were moved twice and told we may need to move a third time. The venue was very nicely decorated although was far too hot.

Whilst the lady in charge was very efficient the serving staff left much to be desired and a 40 Minute wait for coffee took the edge off and excellent experience. The Sunday Lunch food was very good and the choice was basically roasts for main.
