    Food was lovely, although had to queue for a long time. Good choice but not much meat given. There was one very smelly guest at one of the tables and everyone was commenting and holding their nose - not sure what could be done but it was VERY off putting. Drink refill station had run out of concentrate on diet pepsi.

    Ominous to the car very is a thing I do with my old work colleagues who no longer work together so is usually a joy for us but this time we where very disappointed with our meal on Saturday, 1 there was very little meat given to each of us and mine was very very disappointing especially as I only had two kinds of meat, I couldn’t help thinking if I chose all 4 I would of had more as that’s what2 of my friends did and they had double mine, 2 the stuffing was rock hard where it had been broken apart into smaller pieces and had seemed roof dried out in the heat so didn’t have that , 3 the new dripping potatoes looked lovely but where stuck together and broken apart or in one large clump and the normal ones looked very pale and not inviting so didn’t have them , 4 the vegetables where hard and dry and the peas looked like raisins they where so dry So very very disappointing for us that we have considered going else where next time especially as we was booked in for 12 o’clock so it was not as if the food had been put out for very long for it to be so dry Kind regards Mrs cooper

    Food was hot and delicious especially the roast potatoes. Great variety of delicious vegetables. Only disappointment was the vegetarian toad in the hole. Sausages were hard and flavourless.
