Popped in for a quick carvery and had an enjoyable meal. The Beef was really tender as was the Turkey and plenty of it, good selection of veg, I can't resist the cauliflower cheese. I would recommend this carvery above the one with the more well known name (T--y).

The food is amazing. The staff are so friendly & there is always a smile on their faces! I am currently using crutches & the staff are very helpful. My partner is a vegetarian, one little suggestion would be that there I could be a few choices to go along with his veg carvery.

Excellent service and the food was great. Your staff are a credit to your business. The only reasons for not scoring all 5's are I prefer a real ale with my meal and you do not have any on tap, and the atmosphere relys on other customers as well although you can't do much about a surly teen.

This was one of many visits to this gem in town. Having been away from the area for 16 months it was lovely to see the food and service was just the same 'excellent'. My husband had never eaten here before and it certainly lived up to the reputation I had given it. Succulent meat from the carvery and beautiful selection of vegetables. We will be back.

Family Sunday lunch - we'd booked the table and were pleased to be in the booth at the back where we weren't in anyone's way and equally we felt comfortable to chat and relax. We all had the carvery which was plentiful and varied - we all enjoyed what we had and it was nice and hot. We managed a pudding each of which the portions were generous and overall it was great value for money. We'll definitely come again!

Waiter service was lacking, we had to wait 20 minutes to order dessert, no members came to our table to see if everything was ok, we had to go find someone when we wanted another drink.

Excellent service. Recommendation: we visited with a weaning baby and the only snack option was walkers crisps which are too sharp so maybe a stock of softer snacks like skips or quavers could be added, I had to go to the local shop to purchase these and bring into the restaurant.

Ok for the price and food is nice. But they cram large parties into unsuitably sizes tables, which means the whole experience is ruined.
