Stunning food, as always. Great service with very friendly, helpful and attentive staff. Couldn't recommend enough! Kids love the new play area and lovely touch asking if they would help get all the balls back into the ball pit in return for a desert! Never seen them move so quick! Thank you Alan and the Team for another fantastic evening

Expensive for portion size burger was small and tasteless. No side garnish. Scampi was good. Didnt stay for pud as other diners looked small for price.

Had a great father's Day meal here. Despite the weather still some of our party enjoyed the hog roast the rest had the set menu. Food was good, indoors was a bit noisy as it's a big open plan room and was packed out but this didn't bother me. Booking was painless online and the staff were very friendly and helpful despite being rushed off their feet. Our little boy enjoyed the playground, they have added more okay equipment which is also very welcome and there is a mini football pitch for the small ones. All in all a good time will return. 🌟

Ploughman’s was very poor value. Would have expected some ham and pickles not just cheese and two mini loaves of bread!!
