We had a lovely Sunday lunch for the family here. The service was excellent, attentive and courteous. I had chowder for starter which was nice, perhaps a little heavy on the sweetcorn and potatoes, and light on fish. However it was tasty and I enjoyed...it The carvery was a triumph. There was a diverse choice. I had roast beef with Yorkshire pudding and a lovely beef and Guinness pie. There was an array of vegetables and lots of other meat dishes including a ham and turkey pie with cranberry sauce and topped with cubed potatoes which I am assured was delicious. I'm not a great fan of carverys but I really couldn't fault this, it was clean, well presented and the food tasted great. It was also good value. Highly recommended.More

We ate in the newly modernized Elliott's Bistro. We all had starters which we all really enjoyed but the main course's where a bit of a let down considering the starter's where so good. My wife had a Romaneo Chicken dish which came with a...sauce which was more like a pesto spread on top of it. The chicken Penne Pasta was not very creamy and looked a bit greasy. There was seven of us and none of the main courses where very good apart from My daughters chicken coujoun's Probably just teething problems after just getting opened up again after lockdown. Could do with probably puting a good old pepper chicken and a few of there old dishes on the menu again. oMore

We had a meal here, unexpectedly, after attending a (boring!) meeting; this changed the overall impression of the evening for the better! We were greeted in a warm and friendly manner, comfortably seated and given a wide-ranging menu. We chose well and enjoyed out meals...and the evening, despite the earlier disappointment.More
