Probably one of the best Sunday roasts I have had. Everything done well but staff could have been a little more engaging

Wonderful nibbles & main courses were great. Desserts were slightly disappointing - next time we'll have starters instead.

As usual food drink and service were excellent, unfortunately the current situation doesn’t help with atmosphere in any pub or restaurant but it was comfortable and relaxing. We will be returning.
