The staff are lovely and the owners. It's always spotless. The carvery is the best I've been to. I'm allergic to milk and they offer dairy free, vegan and gluten free. The only criticism I can think of is that on 2 occasions they haven't had gluten free gravy. But that is it!! Probably because they are SO busy they run out quickly I don't bother cooking a roast dinner any more as the food is consistently excellent!

Went for first time for their buffet breakfast. Food was very nice. Friendly staff. The only negative point was that the plates were cold could have been warmed up. Apart from that I would 100% recommend for the breakfast.

Hi Excellent food and service Have been to both carvery and fish Friday and both been very good Have recommended to friends who have been and said the same. The only improvement I could suggest is to move the screen where you pay for meals. It gets very crowded with people coming in to the pub. Thanks

overhall good place for breakfast,in my opinion though you need to not let customers hang around the buffett area waiting for food that should be there.also can the toast PLEASE be toast and not warm bread.need to change teabags to better quality(yorkshire) as a great cuppa is a must with a cooked breakfast(i bought my own so i paid for hot water.a few slight improvements would be appreciated,but llike i said good place,but could be great.see you soon.
