Went for the carvery here with the family. Its also got a take out option which is great for anyone missing for Sunday dinner. Great selection, generous meat cuts. All fresh and replaced regularly. Definitely family value.

We just enjoyed a great carvery lunch here on Rememberance Sunday. The place was very busy, with a friendly crowd. Food was excellent, plentiful, & great value for money at £10 per plate. Recommended.
