    Excellent food and good value, but let down by service/ cleanliness.. Waitress on cleaning nearby tables, wiped the crumbs very deliberately on the floor… then continued table clearing rather than taking our order, didnt offrr alernatives to the roast… so different from the good attention we usually get.

    Sorry to say the meal was the worst l have had for a long time all the food was dried and when we told the cook he just looked at me and smile. Not once did a waitress come a ask if we were ok or if we wanted a drink. And when we tried to complain was told the manager was busy

    Reception and waiting staff excellent. If you ran a competition for the carvery who could slice the thinnest meat, I think these premises would win. Apart from this the main meal was excellent. My wife chose the crumble which she described as "really nice". My choice was the Etoni Mess, whilst pleasant it certainly did not match my purchased from other restaurants.
    My only real criticism of the services was the number of time customers were queueing at the carvery with no one to serve them. At one time there were 6-8 in the queue. I saw members of the waiting staff at least four times calling into the kitchen for staff to come out. Each time two members of staff in "Chef style" clothing would come out then return to the kitchen when the customers had been served, waiting to be called out again, with customers left waiting.

    very good food, though broccoli was 'tired' and cauliflower overcooked.
    pudding, chocolate brownie was fantastic.
    rather dowdy surroundings and flies around but very good value.

    We booked a late lunch (3:30pm). The staff were very welcoming and we were seated promptly. The pub was tidy and the decor was pleasant. The food was tasty although the yorkies were somewhat tough and the veg looked a bit tired - had they spent too long under the heat lamp? One of the serving tongs was too hot to handle. Despite that, we all enjoyed our meals and decided to have desserts. These arrived quickly and tasted good. The price was excellent, especially with a 20% discount. Although the food looked like it may have spent too long in the heat it did taste good and, at the price, I certainly can't complain.
