Amazing as always! If you want the best Carvery, come here! Great prices and service. And the food is always top notch. Can't wait to come back again. Hopefully it's sooner than last time!

The best Carvery ever! Delicious and plentiful food served by very friendly staff. I guarantee you will return again and again.

We went for carvery, and I had beef and turkey. The food was outstanding. Their side dishes are great, but their Yorkshire puds are the best - they are massive. We were just seeing some family in Whitworth, but wish we could go all the time!

Sydney Hendrick

Simply brilliant carvery. Staff are friendly and helpful. Food is tasty and portions generous. They even let me take carvery away last weekend because my other half is laid up with ruptured discs in back. Cannot recommend enough.
