Great service, great food. Large selection of well kept real ales. Food very well presented, clearly pride in their work. Sunday carvery is certainly one of the very best there is. If you've not been, you're missing out!

Have eaten sunday dinner on many occasions and can say the food and portions are second to none, always 3 fresh meats to choose from, always plenty of fresh veg and the best homemade yorkies in the city.
