Poor. Very poor. Hugely disappointed. The staff looked utterly miserable. They had ran out of things such as flavours in the drinks machine, cream for pudding which they didn't realise until after taking our order. The ice cream factory was broken. They got our order...More

I'm not going to rubbish this place because for some it's just what they are looking for. Average food, carvery ok, good prices. Big venue and very family friendly but felt too much like a canteen dining experience to me
