ok I start from the beginning. Mother's Day treat for my wife from the 3 youngsters. A busy day as expected but only to find 1 person taking orders and breakfast booking from behind the bar. So I get over that and wait quietly until served. Approach the food counter and no breakfast yorkshires although gallons of the gravy to...

We went to this Toby at 1pm on a Monday. All of the meats were dried up leftovers from the day before. The beef was so dry the server was just putting strings of fibres on peoples plates. The turkey was so old and dry the meat had fell away from the carcass. I always thought it was dangerous to...

I have been using this Carvery for many years, it has changed in value at different times, as they have lowered and raised prices. In recent months, with each consecutive visit, I have noticed yet further falls in quality and value. The plates are becoming ridiculously small, it's not about being able to take more food as they only give...

A man (who I think was a manager) just kept peeking at us from over by a till, it was all a bit peculiar. There was 1 waitress who kept apologising, she was rushed off her...
