A few in when we arrived at 12:00 to have our Sunday lunch, but was packed very soon afterwards in the restaurant area. The meal was excellent but we struggled to get past the first course because of the very generous size of the portions!! The service was friendly and very attentive.

We went in for a Sunday lunch to find the place was heaving with customers. However, although we had not booked, they managed to fit us in and we had a very enjoyable meal with very attentive staff.

Predominantly a restaurant area on entry to the building with much old woodwork structures breaking it up, but with a bar area towards the rear of this including a number of real ales. The rear garden was pleasantly laid out with tables and chairs.
