At the Groupon price, this 3 course meal represents reasonable value for money in our view; we were not however particularly impressed overall. The starter was okay and the beef and yorkshire pudding was divine but frozen vegetables yeuch! The service was somewhat slow despite there being very few customers and when I asked for a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, which in my view is any pub or hotel standard, the waitress had to 'check the fridge' and in the end I settled for a Pinot Grigio. Maybe our expectations were too high but certainly we have had better at our local pub and the vegetables used there are not frozen. So good value for money but you won't be blown away by the quality of food (except the beef), the quality of service or the wine selection.
