Have not been here for some years, visited last week, ate in the restaurant and stayed overnight in hotel. This place was one of the first carvery restaurants I know of. The food was still very good, both in quality and choice, generous meat portions. The old parts of the building which have character have stayed the same. The rooms... More

Outdated restaurant drawing an elderly clientele that has problems accommodating the number of diners because the layout is all wrong. Access to the starters is impossible when there are only five or six people trying to serve themselves so being there is frustrating to say the least. When you get them, the starters are good. There's great variety and the... More

I have had some very good meals in the Old Tollgate with plenty of choice from the Carvery. The staff are very helpful and the service is good. It is a very pleasant place to eat with an interesting character. Parking does not seem to be a problem.

The family and it was very very nice. The service was excellent as always and the choice is crazy. You can have the usual roast meats or select from rabbit or seasonal game or just about anything in season. And they're not right on their portions too. They plate it ALL up for you and bring it to your table... More

We have been here twice for the carvery. We used the special offer deal and this was excellent value. The only thing which could be improved were the roast potatoes which were not very crispy. We have been very happy with the service. The second time we went it was suggested we might like our coffee in a relaxed seating... More

Had evening meal for 10 people for my daughters 21st. Meal was nicely cooked. All enjoyed their main and deserts finished with coffee & tea. Service was slow in parts and then when coffees arrived, no space on our table for waitress to rest her tray as the used glasses etc had not be cleared first. As a result, she... More

I have used the Old Tollgate a few times for meeting potential client meetings. I usually meet about 11am and I have left by noon or 12:10pm latest. I went this week and arrived at 10:50am, I stood at the bar hoping one of the three staff that were behind it would ask if they could help so I could... More

Dear mcdontar I am very sorry to read your review, however, I have spoken to the Restaurant Manager and he clearly remembers speaking to you. He has advised that you took a seat in the restaurant to conduct your private meeting without asking or advising anyone. The restaurant is for our diners only not for private meetings that we are...

We had lunch today at Old Tollgate Restaurant. I have never really been a fan of a Carvery but this was a nice meal. Roast beef was very tasty, the staff were pleasant. there is a free course meal (£5.95 per course I think) Would return if in area.

Thank djl-uk
