    I was a bit disappointed with the starter ( calamari) it was very bland no flavour!
    I was also shocked how much fats I had in my lamb shank! There was about 50% of meat!
    But the dessert crime brûlée was lovely though!

    Lovely old beamed restaurant with excellent amenities and fantastic Sunday Roast, very good value and although a 'chain' the Sunday Roasts are amazing with fresh cooked seasonal veg and succulent meats, staff are lovely and the whole ambience made a good impression

    Wine is overpriced ,the restaurant on a Wednesday evening was less than 20% full. If the wine had a 50% mark up we would go more often. and so would others. The result M & B would make higher profits. Pile them high and sell cheap-This works and the overall profit is higher.
