Roast parsnips would be a fantastic addition to the carvery menu! And also peas or beans or broccoli. Service was great however the table could have done with a wash as it was quite sticky and dirty. Fantastic food though. Would highly recommend.

Fantastic steak, wine and service. We love it here. And the team is always careful to check recipes and offer suggestions for my husband who has a nut allergy.

We visited on a Monday lunchtime when it was not too busy, but the service was excellent. The food was very good, in fact, if anything, the salads are too big - we took away a 'doggy' bag of the smoked salmon salad, as it could not be eaten in one sitting! Perhaps lessen the quantity, and reduce the price, or steer people to the smaller portion; although I expect some would see this as a good fault!

Roast potatoes were horrible and tasted like they’re were from the 12pm sitting! Young staff and waited for service. Won’t be rushing back!
