We needed to stop for lunch and saw this place on the roundabout, so we pulled in at 12.30 on a Sunday. We were shown to a table immediately and advised that it was full table service...however it took about 15 minutes for a member of staff to come and take our orders for drinks...and our food as an afterthought....

After a terrible experience at the National Brewery Museum in Burton, where we expected to have lunch, we drove back to Uttoxeter to find somewhere to eat. There was nowhere that appeared to serve food so we went back to the A50 to the Water Bridge. The staff were friendly and we enjoyed the food. We had not been for... More

It was about 1:30pm on a Sunday and it wasn't very busy, so we were seated straight away and ordered drinks. The menu had something for everyone, plus there was a carvery in full swing that 2 of...

Before Christmas we called in for a meal and were welcomed at the door and taken to a table. The ambiance was warm and cosy and the staff were friendly and efficient. Our meals were cooked well and were really tasty. I've just read reviews written recently and am surprised and disappointed to learn that the standards appear to have... More

The child in question won't eat peas and always as set meal whenever we are out due to Asd. However meal came with peas just before a meltdown occurred I managed to... More

Feel really cross about being charged to eat this food. The only reason we went ( 4 of us ), was because we had a 40% off voucher. We wasn't expecting to be fine dining, but a level of good pub food was to be expected. 3 of us ordered med / rare steaks, they all came well done &... More

Been twice recently as we've had these vouchers, arrived with normal post. We both opted for mixed grill as it was excellent value at £17.75 for two. Whereas is was ok, the steak being a little chewy, we would not pay £14. 79 each. We may go back once more to use voucher, (they keep giving it back) and choose... More
