So, for Valentine's Day (also my wedding anniversary), my husband and I tried it out. They did have a three-course Valentine's menu with a choice of starters and mains and desserts, but we're not big eaters, so we chose from the regular menu.

At first look we were a bit disappointed at the choice of mains we're both not curry eaters (unless I make it at home), and my husband doesn't eat anything spicy, so faced with two curries and three chilli dishes there wasn't much else apart from beer-battered fish, scampi or lasagne. But then we turned the page, and to our relief found choices from the grill: steaks, gammon, chicken burgers my husband choice and 8oz rib-eye steak, which was cooked perfectly (medium). I had American-style chicken fillet with a crispy coating and home-made tomato relish on the side and two onion rings cooked perfectly accompanied with a lovely jacket potato obviously oven-cooked and not microwaved, as the skin was dark and crispy just how I like it.

Both meals were delicious and reasonably priced, the steak was 10.95, and the chicken was 5.95 and nicely presented (oblong and square plates). They serve roast meals on Sunday (check price) and 7.95 for two courses, and they have a choice of desserts and sides also on the menu.

The Mother's Day menu looks lovely slow roast beef in red wine gravy, and roast pork/chicken, as well as a choice of starters and desserts, and that's only 12.95 all home-made; I doubt you can get that value in nice surroundings like that at a better price my mouth was watering just reading the menu. It is advisable to book for Mother's Day I think it will fill up quickly.

They also do pensioners specials and sandwiches and baguettes and jacket potatoes, so if you fancy trying somewhere new give it a try I doubt you'll be disappointed.
