“Typical Pub Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

This is actually a Fayre and Square pub with a wacky Warehouse attached. We were staying at the Premier Inn and had our evening meal and breakfast here.

I had the Sunday Roast and a large glass of wine, my daughter had the sausage children's meal in total it cost just £15.00 so good pricing but the meal was very dry - |I had to ask for extra gravy to try and moisten it up but I still ended up leaving most of it. They do have a policy to change any meal you are not happy with - speak up straight away - because I only explained as the end what the problem was I was told I should have stated so at the beginning.

Breakfast was better. All the cereals, fruit, bread etc you help yourself to, but you order you hot breakfast - now this is a 'premier' breakfast so you should be able to eat as much as you like but I think it puts you off having to give an order for a very large breakfast - and are you allowed to order two? I wasn't brave enough to find out.

Beware of the toaster it just lightly browns your bread and then when you put it through again - it caught on fire! Staff in the morning were very friendly - not so much at the nighttime.
For families there is a nice out door play area and the attached wacky warehouse - but it is the smallest Wacky I have seen.

“Great Value on Meals”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

Although joined to the Premier Inn this pub/resturant is owned by a seperate chain that let the Premier Inn use the facilities. Great value on the food 2 for £10 also good portions, cooked well but slighly on the cold side. All childrens meals £3.50. Drinks very expensive £3.59 pint of Fosters . It is advised to book a table as this resturant gets very busy at weekends with familys going to Peppa Pig World or couples staying overnight befor they cruise. Service can take longer sometime with all the familys eating early. Best to eat later in the evening. Although the staff are rushed off their feet nothing is to much trouble.
Overall good on the food but make up for it on the drinks.

“Good but needs to focus on the small things.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013 via mobile

Ate here on the Wednesday night and Thursday morning as was staying at the Premier Inn next door. We had the garlic mushrooms and pop-erty pop chicken to start. Both nice, although the pot of BBQ sauce was far too big! Mains were the mixed grill and New Yorker chicken. Again, both nice and both plates almost cleared. The mozzarella and bacon topping on the chicken was slightly burned but nothing horrendous. Service was excellent, very impressed that the chap who brought the mains was twisting around and making more work for himself rather than pass hot food over my baby daughter in her pushchair. Big mummy points there!

Breakfast... Hmmm. Food was good, crumpets a bit tasteless for me, but otherwise very good. Service needs attention however. You have to wait to be seated which is understandable as they have to check you off. The podium however is pretty much out of sight of the whole breakfast area, so there can be a bit of a wait. Also, staff need to think about what type of table the customer needs rather than just going to the nearest free one. A table on the main drag with a 'wall' at one end and a small gap between another table is not suitable for a couple and pushchair. Organisation needed of staff, as everyone was doing the same jobs, rather than one seating and taking breakfast orders, one bringing food out and one clearing up, with maybe one or two more replenishing and helping where needed. Overall the food was good, hot, tasty and plentiful!

“The worst place I have ever eaten”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

We dined here on Sunday evening as we were staying at the Premier Inn hotel to visit Peppa Pig world. Please avoid this dreadful place at all costs. The meal was appalling, the mixed grill meat looked as though it had been poached in the microwave and was certainly not in any way chargrilled, the chips were soggy. The only edible part was the bowl of rice and peas ordered for our daughter. The floor was sticky, toilets unclean, tables and cutlery were dirty; the place was clearly understaffed and the wait for the inedible food was over half an hour. The playground outside was full of litter and the benches dirty. My wife would rather have gone to McDonalds which was behind the petrol station at the services up the road but yes that would have been a much better option. If Premier Inn don't want their reputation for reasonable and clean overnight accommodation affected then the food options need to be upgraded.
