Description: Beefeater opened their doors back in 1974, and were driven by a passion for glorious steak. Mouth-watering cuts at mouth-watering prices was their motto. Reassuringly nothing's changed, these things still drive them today and they always will. Beefeater believe in two things, a warm friendly welcome and serving incredible steak.

The Balmoral Inn, attached to the Premier Inn at Nursling, provides great pub food. We had breakfasts and dinners during our 3 day’s stay and all the food was plentiful, hot and well-served. Unfortunately, due to an obvious lack of employees, the staff were run off their feet. Donna, Raj, Hayley and Sam (sorry can’t remember all their names, but they were all great!) worked like Trojans and deserve ‘Employee of the month awards’ – they certainly did their best and remained unflappable and courteous, often apologising for the delay and wait. The chef should be commended too as the food was brilliant – steaks, burgers, fish – yummy! There was a good choice for the Continental breakfast and the cooked breakfasts were lovely – although, again, the lack of staff let the place down. Get things sorted out Beefeater if you want to keep your staff!!

If you like steak or burgers, then this is definitely the place for you, although their fish and chips is also very good. Snacks like chips and ciabattas are also available. The food is consistently good, if a little boring, but they have elderflower and other cordials for drivers as well as the ubiquitous cola. Pepsi and soft drinks from the fountain are refilled for free with a meal.

Evening meal was acceptable with excellent starters. General ambience needs to improve and decor looking very tired. Stopped at Premier Inn next door. Breakfast was a bit of a shambles with staff unable to cope. Apparently the hotel has recently been extended but no changes made to restaurant to cope with increased numbers. Long wait for cooked breakfast, coffee and fruit juice running out. Only one toasting machine. Bar where juices were kept was awash with juice. Could do better.

Me and friend stop for food after a long days work ... Ordered food together but paid separately and my food came out first and his didn't come out untill i had finished mine and we went to the bar to ask where his food was ! They brought it straight out ! So it had been sat there for 20 mins the manager didn't even apologise and just told him he would cook him another meal and his attitude was awful!! Never again !!
