Up to the usual standard we have come to expect from this establishment. Good food and service, especially after lunchtime crowds with children had left and it was more adult dining. Chicken portions exceptional.

    The food was amazing but the service was terrible. Had to wait over an hour for our food. 2 desserts were never brought out, however money was deducted from the bill.

    Sunday lunch was delicious. Didn't have to wait too long, and the plate was piled high with food, definitely get value for money.

    My family had travelled from Lowestoft and thoroughly enjoyed their meal. They commented on the lovely warm and friendly atmosphere and the setting. I had asked if it was possible for me to order quickly a couple of starters for my son who had to be somewhere and they arrived without any problem. I frequently eat with you and have always had a good meal....I enjoy the quiz nights too.
    Keep up the great work and Thankyou.

    Food, comfort, friendliness of waiters excellent. The experience was spoilt because we had to wait so long for service.
    This is the only reason I would not recommend the rstaurant to a friend..

    Very friendly and helpful staff, comfortable atmosphere, good parking facilities, very clean and tidy. Food presented exactly as ordered, fairly quickly and hot. A party of 8 people and all the plates were left free of any food ---------- so that says it all really.
    Good honest menu and value for money being reasonably priced for the venue. The restaurant was filled to capacity but every one seemed to be happy with their table service.
    All in all a good meal out. Having been there several times previously the standard has not changed. Well done!!
