Had breakfast here with my family last Saturday morning. It was busy and the service was excellent. Deliciously cooked food and friendly staff.

went on saturday afternoon to watch the rugby and had some drinks. When i asked what wine there was by the glass the barman said 'everything'. I asked what that meant in his establishment as I would be very surprised if they stocked every wine known to man. In the end got a reasonable glass of Malbec though £21.74 for... More

I was highly recommended for breakfast as they accommodate to slimming world but I was disgusted in this experience. The foods I asked for were snubbed at and I then overheard complaints being made by the waitress and the chef about my dietary requests which were far from unreasonable (dry fried mushrooms) mine and my partners breakfast did not come...

We found the food and service at Oswalds Cross very disappointing. This is a Table Table restaurant, which we have found in the past, when we have visited elsewhere, to be excellent. We had first class accommodation at Premier Inn, but after our first meal at the restaurant we did not bother with the breakfasts or evening meals.

This was the worst restaurant I have ever eaten in despite visiting many Premier Inns over the years. The chef seems to think that everything should be overcooked/rock hard,. My goujons were solid, sausages at breakfast the same. Main meal of chicken - again overcooked. Shan't eat here again.

Good: The food was well cooked, big enough portions, and hot! Can't ask for anything more. Service was great too; the waiting time was good too. The staff were excellent; friendly and attentive. The only slight fly in the ointment. We were recommended the place by the receptionist at the Travelodge, but when we turned up, we were asked if... More

We purposely travelled here to use up some tabletable vouchers we had, as our closest one is the Bridgewater Arms, Harmer Hill. I refuse to go go there ever again, due to a very bad experience. This place knocked spots off it, it was very clean, and everything was well presented. The food was really good, and we would visit... More
