Very slow service and they could not provide the food we ordered.

They advertise breakfast served until 11.45 on a Sunday so arriving at 10.30 seemed to be in good time.We were seated in the so called conservatory, which is in fact more of a lean too.There we sat for fifteen mins until someone graced us with their presence to take our order.
The order taken we were looking forward to our 'Pan' Breakfast. Not to be the order was taken too late by the staff and the chef refused to cook it.
We were given our coffee free but sorry just not good enough

I have been into Framptons ever since it opened and standards are defiantly slipping, maybe the day staff management has changed, as in the last 2 weeks I have had 3 girlie lunches and each time service has been sloppy, 1st time they forgot our drinks and food order, second time order was wrong and today they got the order wrong and the barman boarded on rude when we went to pay "go over to the waitress at the till if you want to pay" no manners and he was wiping down not serving another, when we got to the till the waitress was sorting something on the till and we were several minutes before she even acknowledged us. Poor show for regulars who spend. We stuck to our standards and still tipped them however this evening we are planning a different venue for later in the week. Sorry guys you need to shape up if you want to keep your good name.

5 of us visited on recommendation Framptons for their Roast Lamb for 4 persons. One of our group didn't want Lamb so had one of their Gorgeous Sirloin Burgers with Bacon n Cheese accompanied by a small Bucket of fries! Delicious I am told! It looked good too !

Well, the Lamb didn't disappoint! It came served on a v large wooden platter piled high withSliced roast Lamb and stuffing to die for, so lean and moist and flavoursome, Yorkshire Pud, Parsnips, Carrots, potatoes (roasted) plus a cauliflower with cheese sauce. We also asked for Samphire as one of our group had this previously; that too with the peas was delicious, accompanied by super gravy and mint sauce. Service was excellent, food was ready for us having booked (you have to book in advance for this and pay a £5 per head deposit.) well worth it , best ever we have tasted for a Sunday lunch at the superb price of £10 per head. Will visit again with our family!! They will love it !

Have been here for breakfast and also for lunch and the food is always amazing, and all reasonably priced! The mushroom soup is THE BEST. On one occasion we booked but on arrival we found that the booking had not been recorded, luckily there was a table anyway! Also service is sometimes slightly slow although the staff are always friendly and helpful... It's always very busy so maybe more staff required? Thanks for lots of delicious meals and more to come!
