I have eaten the Sunday carvery here several times over the last few years and have always found the food to be excellent. My last visit was no exception, everyone enjoyed a lovely carvery and was very full at the end. Great location, friendly staff top notch food.

I regularly go to the Balnoon Inn with family and friends for a carvery. I keep going back because the food is first rate and the staff are lovely. We are always remembered and feel that our patronage is appreciated.
The meat is always tender, the broccoli and cauliflower cheese tastes of cheese and not a plastic packet sauce, the potatoes are crispy and the parsnips roasted in honey are just mouth watering!
The layout is sometimes a little cramped but this just goes to show how busy it can be, it is advisable to book.
Two thumbs up and a wacka wave from me.

We tried the Sunday carvery. Our recomendation is don't. I wish that we handn't. The food was like a school dinner on a bad day. The TV's were distracting and the screaming children uncontroled by either the parents or the staff. We wil not be going back.

Went there for Sunday carvery,and without doubt it was a big mistake..the meat was bland and tough,the vegetables were cold,and the potatoes which were not properly cooked were actually that bad I couldn't eat them.this was the worst roast dinner I have ever had.staff were nice and polite though.
