Trip Advisor recommendations for February

“Sunday Heaven”

“Whilst visiting family and before we left for home they took us for a Sunday Roast, beef or chicken was on this weeks menu,(main menu also available) oh my the beef was devine, cooked just how I like it, delicious, staff very friendly, an absolute must.”

“Sunday Roast”

“I was keen to try here after I’d contacted them regarding gluten free options and they were so helpful. So today I went with 3 adults and 2 children. 2 of the adults need to be GF. The chef was brilliant nothing was too much trouble. He accommodated the Gf’s and all the others exceptionally well. In fact I would go as far as to say it was the best roast dinner I’ve had. There was ample choice for all of us, including 5 choices of veg huge Yorkshire puddings. Then to follow lovely sticky toffee pudding. The chef said he would have made the GF’s an extra dessert if they had wanted it with a bit of notice. The children had pizza’s and chips, which again were very good. The staff were very helpful and considerate.”
