Dropped in for something to eat on the way through, very friendly and happy staff who were more than happy to greet and serve us. The food that came out was exceptional. Some of the nicest I’ve ever tasted with perfectly large portion sizes.

I will defiantly be coming back again! Top work guys, seriously. So impressed.

Cannot fault the service here, especially as we were a large group and one of three parties in for lunch. The menu is extensive, portions are large and the food very tasty. All very reasonably priced too! Definitely worth a visit.

Got to bed one of the best, if not, the best, place to go to for a Sunday Carvery. Superb choice of roast joints (beef, pork and lamb today), and a selection of vegetables that really compliment the whole meal. The staff are always welcoming and friendly, making the whole visit complete. Totally outstanding and have never failed to impress.

Delicious fillet steak, cooked to perfection and so tasty. Vegetables and crispy chips nicely cooked, too. Dessert of raspberry pavlova just right to follow. Prompt and efficient service and pleasant staff.
