This is quite possibly the strangest restaurant experience i've ever encountered! I booked to dine here at late notice and was told they do an all you can eat buffet for £8.95. Sounds good, thats until we sat down. Imagine an OAP's coach trip to a tacky Blackpool B&B/hotel. Imagine the 'canteen/restaurant' in that hotel...well its pretty much the same minus the sea and sand...
The place was in dire need of decoration. Old tables and chairs mixed with signs hanging from the ceiling (salad bar / 'taste of Italy' etc) along with tacky canvasses that don't blend in with the rest of the decor. I just get the feeling the management have simply given in. Saturday night should be booming but the "restaurant" was about a tenth full! The bar consisted of 4 local chavs and other than that, the place was lifeless!
The food by the way, although a large selection, was a large selection of very very average grub. For £8.95, its worth it i guess, it fills you up, but its not somewhere to take your other half for a romantic meal out! I'm so pleased i chose somewhere else for valentines, because it was on the shortlist!
For such a nice looking pub from the outside, it should be far more successful. The all you can eat buffet seems like an act of desperation to get custom in. The staff were very pleasant. Felt sorry for them they had to work in sure a lifeless place.
I hope one day, some money gets spent on it because it has the potential to be a fab country pub and restaurant! In all honesty, it was a real shame to see how run down this country pub was. Gordon Ramsay would have a field day here!
