The food was delicious, plenty of vegetable to choose from. Nice and hot. No complaints at all. Only complaint on drinks I ask for diet coke no ice or lemon always seem to be served with ice.

Second time we have been here in a month, we have been made to feel welcome as though we are regulars both times. The carvery is the best value around and is now our first choice for a Sunday. I thoroughly reccomend them to others and look forward to returning soon.

It was a good experience, but I have to say that I resent being expected to respond to these kind of enquiries - which often follow a purchase in a shop. This is the last time I shall comply.

The food was fine and very good value. We arrived at the beginning of lunch time and were greeted and seated promptly. Service was all right then but the place is definitely understaffed and as time went on we were left waiting and waiting for desert menu and then to place the order. We had planned to have coffee but gave up and left.
