    booked a table prior to visit but placed next to a large party which was very loud, asked if we could change table and the young lady was very understanding and got us a more suitable spot. The food was excellent very hot well presented and plenty of it. The bill contains items we hadn't ordered but again dealt with promptly and changed. A lovely Sunday lunch as usual will be back

    Location outstanding. Staff friendly. Food quality great. Problem: this venue used to offer smaller portions of their main courses but now only offers the very large servings that seem, for some reason, to be popular around here. Frankly we were ‘overfaced’ as they say in Yorkshire. This actually makes the meal less attractive to some of us. Lovely people but they are really not helping the country’s obesity crisis!

    Booked for Sunday lunch and we weren’t disappointed. Lovely beef, perfectly cooked veg, lovely gravy and a great Yorkshire pudding. Ample portions meant we shared a dessert which was equally as fantastic. Really attentive and friendly staff despite the restaurant being full to capacity. Unfortunately we aren’t local but if we come back to the area, we’ll definitely be back. Highly recommended.

    We came from Tatsfield, Kent to spend a day with our friend who lives close by. The venue was ideal, the staff were very friendly and polite and the food / atmosphere was very good. We had a nice table by a window facing the sea as requested and we probably spent a couple of hours there.

    As usual, the service, food and attitude of our waitress were second to none. We had lunch mid-afternoon and because it was a Monday, the mood was quiet - no problem though when we have been before, it has been lively which was also great.

    The location is fantastic and food has become good standard but still remains very much of family pub/restaurants with old fashioned layout hence many families or older people to be seen. It’s such a shame as it’s location is fab,food is restaurant standard. It can catch more young audiences & becomes a trendy spot if you upgrade interior too. I felt out of place as the rest of dinners were in 60’s !

    Great friendly staff but very busy so service was, on occasions a little slow as we had to catch someone to ask for drinks and the pudding menu. Although once ordered the food was quick to arrive and delicious. However drinks took a bit longer.
