I went here last Sunday on the 10th of feb and what a disappointment. I was very excited initially as my family have always raved about the Sunday carvery.
The first problem is the layout. There is no suitable waiting space in the restaurant, so if you are waiting for your table or a drink you are completely in the way of staff with dishes or people coming back with full plates from the carvery. Very very awkward. We were left waiting a long while for our reserved table to be cleared and the waitress to find us a chair- although she aborted the chair hunt to go back behind the bar.
The food itself was honestly the worst carvery I have had. All vegetables and meat were stone cold. . . . With the potatoes being the biggest let down- they appeared deep fried with a crispy outing but rock solid cold potato in the centre. Myself and my children love roasties, so for us to leave them they must have been bad! The chef was sweet about it and bought out more-,which were equally as bad. But the waiting staff were uninterested and did not even query how our meal was. I am local but will honestly not eat here again. Very disappointed.
