    Booked a table for Sunday roast at noon, and was lucky enough to be seated on the terrace! Food was delicious, and the portion was huge. I ordered the beef roast, which came with cauliflower cheese, potatoes, carrots, cabbage, and yorkshire pudding. I asked for a lemonade, but was served a sprite which I realize might just be a cultural thing! Enjoyed my meal nonetheless.

    Came for Sunday roast. Unprepossessing exterior but pleasantly surprised inside ! Good range of wines and beers. Service swift and polite. Sadly dinner not as good as previous reviews - decent portion size but overall a bit average - not helped I think by serving it tepid- mine was actually a bit on the cold side .

    The food was as excellent as I remembered it to be. It was very quiet when we arrived though In fairness it was midday. It did fill up after 13:00. The only criticism would be that the bar person/ waiter should not be in a service industry. No engagement or politeness whatsoever. However it won’t stop us going back.

    The staff was super friendly, and there were a lot of drinks on the tap to choose from. The roast was perfectly cooked and the portions were big. Would definitely recommend.

    Down with piped music. It seems to be played for the staff's entertainment, not for the customers' benefit. When it is intrusive, customers speak up, to be heard over it.
