Portions quite large (for me). Disappointed that the crispy beef salad was not available but enjoyed the food. Very friendly welcome and service.

Arrived on time place was very busy but were given our table within 5mins,waitress was very good at her job got our drinks and showed us to our table took our order and food arrived very promptly we ordered the farmyard feast which was very large but it was delicious ,its the best Sunday lunch I have had in a long time it was full of taste, all the meat was cooked perfectly veg was just right could not eat both Yorkshire puddings as I was leaving room for my dessert, I had the fruit crumble with custard my husband had the sticky toffee pudding which he said was very good ,only one criticism of my dessert was that it need more sugar in the fruit, but that is just my taste, it was a very enjoyable lunch thank you very much it was my husband 66 birthday and the only time he moaned about was that he had to pay the bill ha ha will definitely visit you again x

Party of six of us attending New Year Eve celebrations. Food etc., was excellent but we could have done with more to do from 9.30pm to take us through to Midnight. Disco was too loud and not our sort of music although we were looking forward to a dance. \Left in the end around 10.30pm.

Nothing negative to say but just a couple of observations for next year! The food was absolutely delicious and served piping hot but the portion size was enormous, especially the main and dessert courses. We just couldn't finish it all. Also, when booking the table back in August I did advise one of our party was pescatarian (eats fish but not meat or meat products) but the sprouts (which he loves) were served with bacon and he was disappointed he couldn't have any. We didn't say anything as not a major issue and there was an abundance of other veg which he was happy with. Finally, the choice of music was a bit odd - Pink Floyd's Another Brick in the Wall isn't particularly Christmassy! Perhaps some Christmas classics and/or carols next year? It would improve the atmosphere. And we must mention the staff; without exception they were charming, friendly and, as we could see, very hard working. They really are a credit to you. See you next year!

Good roast/festive meal but unfortunately the vegetarian meal from the festive menu was mostly sweet potato and very little root veg which was disappointing. It was also over-seasoned, which is often the case with veggie food when poor quality vegetables are used that carry little taste. Hopefully it was an accident and a one-off, but it has put us off coming with vegetarians again. Service was excellent - lovely staff who were very busy but nevertheless attentive.
