Fab Sunday lunch

"Visited this afternoon for Sunday carvery. The beef was so tender and it was the best cauliflower cheese I’ve ever had. All home cooked.. I had medium size and it was huge. 2 medium carverys, pint of john smiths and a medium glass of wine for less than £20... cannot go wrong. Will be back for sure. Lovely cheerful staff too. "
