“These guys simply do the best Sunday carvery in Ashford. Absolutely brilliant food served up by a dedicated team. Well done, love it.”
Comment on the Footprints FB page, January, 2020.

Between 12pm and 3pm on a Sunday, priority is given to our customers for the carvery, so it may not always be possible to serve tea, coffee and cakes at this time, or there may be a delay to you being served.
