“50th Birthday Meal”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

Normally the food is quite good, but the meat was dry, the veg overcooked, and the roasties were in a league of their own, but not in a good way.
They need to get back to basics, as you never see Richard n Si these days at the helm.

Hi this is Richard .
Thankyou for your comments and your first ever review.
I personally feel a bit wounded as I work in excess of 80hours per week @ Raggalds and so to say i have left the helm is a personal insult.
Secondly I will take up your food comments with my kitchen team , so can you please advise date and time of your visit .
Should you wish to contact me 01274 884421 ,feed back is welcome good or bad BUT as i said earlier 80hours is a lot of hours .

“Drag night certainly not a drag”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

Visited many times for lovely Sunday carvery which is always top notch. Went to the drag night to celebrate my sister's 50 birthday. Food was lovely and entertainment was fantastic. The show was hilarious. We had a brilliant night and all for £15 per head.

“Very good, but probably need a colour chart for the roast potatoes”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

Visited on Mother's Day as part of a big group. The carvery meal was very good, particularly the beef. Mash was great and good choice of well-cooked veg. However, couldn't believe that they actually put the roast potatoes into a serving dish and presented them as part of the carvery offering. They were very, very, overdone. Just an note to the chef for future reference: if you check on your roast potatoes and they are about ten shades blacker than soot, it is probably time to take them out of the oven. Actually, you probably should have done it sooner. It was a huge shame because every other element of the experience was brilliant, particularly the hospitality and first class service. Unfortunately, we did what most British folk tend to do and just ate them, hoping that they would not taste as bad as they looked. Unfortunately, they did. We didn't complain as we did not want to make a fuss and possibly spoil the atmosphere. We probably should have been a bit more assertive. I think the problem was that someone obviously thought that it was acceptable to serve them up in the first place. Probably best if you have made a mistake and burnt them (badly), not to serve them up. Don't let it put you off going. Probably just a one off problem. (I hope).

Thankyou so much or a very honest review. The potatoes should not have made the carvery and this point has been addressed with the kitchen . Today carvery was back to full strength. please give Richard a call 01274 884421 at your convenience . We can only grow by accepting criticism and compliments and dealing with them in a productive manner .

“Excellent Food and Service”
Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

Had a fabulous Sunday Carvery at The Reggalds the meats were delicious we had the beef and pork both cooked to perfection the Yorkshire puddings were amazing so tasty and a good variety of vegetables 5 choices in total again cooked perfectly was too full to have dessert but they looked so tempting. The waiting staff were very attentive and polite asking if all was ok, drinks came within a few minutes even though it was fairly busy. Would recommend this place for delicious home cooked food Well done all Aysha and Natalyi
