One highlight, and much talked feature of ours is the Sunday Lunch. With 5 or 6 meats on the board you don’t get to choose….you get the lot, along with Yorkshire Puddings, vegetables and dripping cooked potatoes.

Since opening the doors in early 2014 we have been awarded Taste of the West Gold and become listed in the Michelin Guide as well as being Finalists in numerous Regional awards.
