“Staff poor.. Managers even worse”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

This must be the worst place I have come to eat.. food is bland, plain.. boring... are the kitchen staff just out of school. .

The bar staff.. Some are good. Most don't care.. you complain all you get is speak to manager... They have multiple managers. . Which one...

Spoons really need to get a grip as outsiders will come but locals NO BETTER PLACES. .

“Great value carvery”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

Had lunch here. I have never seen such a selection of vegetable dishes on a carvery in this price range. We were given a large serving of meat and such a tasty selection that we could not manage a pudding.
I saw samples of deserts being served and they looked to be generous portions and very tempting. A couple on the table next to us had Lamb shanks from the menu and could then go to select veg from the carvery!
The décor and layout is a bit tired but why go anywhere else, particularly if you are hungry?
Also good real ale!
