“Very impressed by the Sunday Carvery Vegetarian option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2014

As vegetarians finding a Sunday Carvey can be a bit tricky...but they are out there and some stand out from all the others, some for all the right reasons and the Oaks was one of them...Sunday lunch was required and although we had not booked but arriving at just before 3oclock we were quickly shown a table in a restaurant that was still quite full and seemed to have a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere, the staff very polite and surroundings very nice. There were a number of vegetarian options on the menu but we all chose the carvery and it was absolutely delicious. The vegetables at the carvery were lovely, not over cooked, and very presentable, nothing like a canteen experiance we have had in other places, the roast potatoes and yorkshire puddings were both veggie freiendly and we were given our own vegetarian gravy. The desserts where again well presented and delicious. We will definitely go back and hopefully have the same great experiance ...a lovely Sunday lunch at a great price ..thank you

“Nice meal out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

I went to Farrington park with some friends on the 27th September after hearing the food was great and it was a lovely place to go... We were not disappointed! The food was exceptional; we had 2 steak and chips which were perfectly cooked and a risotto which was full of flavour. the staff were friendly and the views were gorgeous. This is the place to go if your looking for a nice meal out. Will be returning soon.

“Oaks (not so restaurant)”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

The word restaurant is deceiving for this place. After booking a table for a Saturday night meal, we arrived to an almost empty restaurant at 7.30pm. At the bar we were presented with a small card menu offering minimal choices of pub food at way over-board prices and advised we could sit where we wanted! Thoroughly disappointed at discovering it not to be the kind of restaurant we were expecting and that it was too late to find somewhere else to eat, we ordered a main of steak and hand cut chips (which when it came was minute and certainly not value for money) and the pea/bean and mint risotto (which was an overcooked, tasteless bowl of sludge). Sweets failed to impress with a strawberry parfait which was rock hard and very bland. A creme brulee (bizarrely served on the same ugly wooden chopping board the steak had arrived on). This had no hard sugary layer and was served with a rock solid inedible piece of brown cake?? Sadly the food lets this place down big time and we can only assume the award winning chefs advertised had the night off. The restaurant was decorated lovely, the waiting staff were efficient and well trained but we won't be returning and regret going.

“Played there as a Golf Society”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2013

We played here as a Golf Society in April of 2013 with 20 players. The building is modern and clean with plenty of space for large groups. We had open sandwiches and chips for lunch followed by an evening meal of chicken and vegetables. We ended up with a seperate cheeseboard each with enough different cheeses, chutney, grapes, butter and crackers to finish off a good meal. It has a good selection of real ales and lagers. There was a wedding party on at the same time as us however the venue is big enough that unless you looked hard you would not have noticed.
