Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Me and my partner came to stadium Saturday for a late lunch/early dinner. We were welcomed by two lovely young ladies. We had 1 drink each and the new steak fondue recommended by our waitress Demy. She said It was new on the menu so...we didn’t know what to expect but it was so good! We passed on dessert because we were so full but I did have a coffee which was really nice. Would definitely recommend.More

Been to the Stadium a few times with the wife for something to eat, she had a nut roast dinner and I had a beef and overdone Yorkshire pudding dinner. This came with veg, mash potato and supposedly freshly roasted potatoes which were very hard...on the outside and tasted awful, In fact I would say they were frozen Then heated up in the microwave they were that bad I asked for them to be replaced with fresher roast potatoes.even then when those potatoes arrived they were just has bad. We also realised the prices have been increased the portions are smaller and the quality of food in my opinion has gone down and I will not be eating there again. The quality of food, it’s not as nice as it used to be, I think they use frozen products, and nothing is not cooked fresh.More

We loved this place, not anymore. They have introduced a new menu, less availability, higher price and smaller portions. Such a shame this place used to be great but I won't be going again

Used to love this place but will never return after today. New menu, higher prices, smaller portions. I had the turkey dinner, they served me turkey which was black in places, I sent it back and the turkey they gave me the second time was...even worse. Refused to eat it or re order so had to sit and watch my friend eating and had to find somewhere else to eat after. What an absolute awful experience.More

We hadn’t been here in a while as we usually go to sprinters in Arnold , so thought we’d give it a go mostly because of the lamb listed on the three course special. So I booked a table for 1pm greeting on arrival was...a bit hit and miss we were taken to our table and given menus. Around 20 minutes later got asked what drinks we wanted so we ordered food at the same time we were told on ordering that there was no lamb left , which was fine so we all ordered the Turkey dinner , another 20 minutes went by we got our drinks ten minutes later we got our starters which was only soup but arrived with no cutlery!but seemed to take forever for the waitress to return !Within ten minutes we had finished our soup and the bowls were taken away 25 minutes later I had to ask where our main course was the waitress went to check and apparently it was being plated up in the kitchen so we waited and waited another ten minutes went by before we got our main meals ! . Well I would like to say it definitely wasn’t worth waiting for , not very warm and the Yorkshire puddings tasted stale like they were saved from the weekend before 🤢 so hence only half our meals were eaten. The plates were taken away ten minutes later and we asked for our puddings , another 20 /25 minutes later I had to ask again for the puddings to which they came after another ten minutes with no cutlery again ! So off she went and returned 5 minutes later with spoons . Honestly it was like pulling teeth. Yes it was fairly busy but there was plenty of staff so couldn’t understand why the service was so horrendous and the food not much better . Not once did we get ask if everything was ok , but may that’s because they know it’s crap and for three of us to go out for lunch I did not expect to be there over two hours and most if that was time spent asking and waiting. On leaving I still wasn’t asked about how everything was so I had to tell them how disappointed we were and why the girl did give a half hearted apology another rough looking customer sat on his own tried to have a go at us for complaining saying he’s never had a problem there , well maybe sober up and you might realise how bad it really is ! Also everyone’s experiences are different so maybe he should crawl back under in rock ! . So needless to say we definitely won’t be back and wouldn’t recommend anybody else wasting there hard earned money here . Sprinters in Arnold which is a restaurant in the same ownership is far better service food everything so please Avoid stadium leisure basford at all costs you will def be disappointed!More

Ok let's be honest, the majority of this place is beautiful and you can see that money has been spent to make this place smart in the bars and function rooms. Sadly the snooker hall is so run down, dated and obviously ignored by management,...strange when you consider Michael Holt (professional snooker player) plays here. Most tables are lacking rests or triangles and the rests that are there are mainly broken in some way . There are very few usable cues (fortunately I have my own). I have been a member here for years but due to being away I had not visited here since 2015/16 and I can say it has not had any TLC since then. The chairs around the room are old and falling apart too. Come on Stadium Leisure, please give this area the love and attention it requires. Currently a 2/5, fix the above and I would recommend this place to anyone as a 5/5.More

Me and my wife came to stadium leisure on a Tuesday after hearing about their cheap 3 course menu for £6.99. we was greated by a small young blonde girl (didn’t catch her name) who sat us at our table and asked us which drinks...we would like. Now usually once the food order has been taken at most places you don’t see the waitress again but wow was I wrong on this day. The blonde waitress was fantastic and to say she was extremely busy she made sure everything was ok with every course! If I hadn’t have asked I would have assumed she was some sort of manager. Nothing was too much to ask. The food was amazing good portion size to say how cheap it is and service was excellent I will definitely be coming back! Lots of different deals during the week.More

So disappointing. Walked in and told to sit where we like by a colleague and they would come over , didn’t get a menu, other people came in after us, got a menu, ordered food and drinks, served their drinks, still no menu. Other tables...ordered puddings, still no menu, tables cleaned, still no menus, phones answered, still no menus, staff chatting, still no menus. When a 7 and 10 year are critical of no service there’s a problem. Im not prepared to spend my money on ignorance, the interaction with the one member of your team who realised we had no menus was too little, too late. I usually love this place, always been spot on but I’m now eating elsewhere.More
