Had a meal here this week it was fantastic this place is so under rated but at least that means you'll always get in. the menu is varied and the food to die for the service is excellent very friendly staff too it's a big place so if there are few diners it can feel a little cold so people get in there

“We were surprised!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

If we are honest we avoided this place as it always seems empty when we drive past and presumed that people had voted with their feet. However we decided to risk Sunday lunch. The places was pretty empty at 2.30pm. Staff were attentive orders taken quickly. Starters were pâté- good flavour and chicken Caesar salad - good flavour but lettuce was just past its best bit limp but overall 6/10. Lamb was very tasty, beef felt tough when cutting but tasted good. Crackling pork had no crackling, was fatty but also a touch dry definitely the worst of the three but still tasty definitely had worse served as Sunday lunch out. Profiteroles were good sauce very nice. The service was very friendly but having read some of the other reviews I do agree that the service was slow at times there were lots of staff & not very many customers so I would have expected service to be a it a bit sharper but no one could complain about how friendly they were. We could definitely recommend for Sunday lunch.

“Food ok Service awful”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

After being here a month ago with a large party and a very bad experience with food, service and the bill I thought with a smaller group things might have been better. Not the case ! The food on the first night was ok for those who had beef. The steaks were awful. Only way to describe it. The service was not good at all. The bill situation was a disaster. We're charged for extra starters that were not ordered. Gravies were set out on the tables not being ordered but were charged for ! Bill was £50 more than what it should have been but rather than cause a scene we paid it between us. On the 2nd occasion there was a far smaller party. Only for it being an invite I would not have been. I stayed safe this time and ordered the roast beef rather than the steak. Have to say everyone enjoyed the food. Was very good. But again staff were a disaster. questioned what had been brought out, even snapped a bread roll because they said the person had already got 1. Kicked up because of the way we wanted to pay separately. We're so rude. I think it was the head waitress. With her you are never right ! She always has an excuse or an answer. Could not wait to get out. Definitely not a friendly atmosphere from the staff. Happy to take ur order for food after that its a diff story. Maybe an even smaller group eg 2 or 4 ppl. They might be able to handle things a bit easier so be a bit kinder to the customers.

“best avoided”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2013

We ordered 2 main courses a burger and a salad and waited over an hour for them to arrive. Once food did arrive it was very disappointing. At £10 per main I would expect a lot better.
Toilets were out of soap in the dispensers and the hand dryer did not work. Will not go back again.
