    The food itself was good, found the cauliflower/leek undercooked for us, but the rest was delicious, only other criticism was that there was 6 of us and had one tureen of veg between us which I thought was a bit stingy.

    This has to be my 7th visit and the food is still as delicious as the first time! I do feel I have exhausted the menu now 🤦‍♀️🤣 so maybe a new menu will be a nice change…. 😊

    The best Sunday lunch we’ve ever had. Definitely recommend the slow cooked beef, it was outstanding. I finished off with the pavlova which I do not regret as was equally outstanding! We’ll be back soon (whenever we’re able to get back in).
