Really enjoyed our meal of gammon and all the trimmings. We were £20 per person for meal, soft drink & a coffee . Coffees are lovely smooth tasting. The staff were attentive and friendly.
Our only negative point was really about the other rude entitled customers who queue jumped when we were waiting both to wait for a table and then again when we went to pay . The system was a bit awkward as the paying point and checking in pount are next to one another and caused confusion both times - can this point be merged into one queue?

We dine in Weavers several times a week and have never been disappointed. Some of the reviews have been quite brutal and need addressing. Over the last few months the restaurant has been through some turmoil, staffing levels front and back of house in line with the rest of the UK hotel and catering industry. There is a new menu coming in the next couple of weeks. Our food and level of service has always been first class. Tempura Prawns are superb as is the soap and a sandwich combination. All the soaps are homemade and lovely and thick not like some who serve watered down versions. The world seems to be full of complainers, reviews stating that the staff were run off their feet and wait times for meals. All the sympathy then followed by a slating review. I know the plenty customers where given massive discounts or free meals to compensate for the situation at the time.
All the staff front and back of house are superb but every so often they are caught out by a massive influx of customers. Having to wait for freshly cooked meals is a good thing over the ding ding microwaved meals served elsewhere.
Give it a try you won’t be disappointed.

The food was lovely, I had a prawn sandwich. However the service wasn’t good. I had to wait ages for my drink, which was just a tea. My food came out first and I was left waiting for another 15 mins for my drink, which only then came because I told 2 members of staff that I was still waiting.
No one came to ask me if my food was ok. And no one came to clear my plate after I had finished. I sat there for half an hour after I had finished and no one came.
Lots of dirty tables left around me as well which isn’t nice.
They could be short staffed, so it’s not the waitress’ fault, but if that’s the case then the company needs to look at getting more staff.
