We visited with friends for a carvery meal as it is a favourite place of theirs and we've been several times before with them. The carvery was okay, though again the Yorkshire puddings were too hard to cut into! Not many choices of pudding but at the price of £10 for 2 meals it was a cheap and cheerful menu.
When we got to the coffee stage, I was able to order decaffeinated coffee but one of our friends asked for latte... only to be told the machine was broken! I think without fail every time we have been to the Oaklands, there is an excuse about the coffee machine being broken.....surely there is a firm in Norwich somewhere who could fix it?
Interestingly there were hardly any other people dining in the restaurant on Satuirday evening although the place was busy with (possibly 2) weddings.
