“Nowhere near as busy as it used to be under the previous management”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

My wife and I have dined at The Beeches with friends, family or colleagues quite a number of times since it opened back in the nineteen nineties, but we have never seen the restaurant as empty as this. It used to be popular with groups of doctors from the Diana Princess of Wales Hospital, a walk or drive of about a Kilometre. We understand that there has been new management in the last twelve months or so since our previous visit four or five years ago. Possibly the date, January 3rd, played a part in the quietness, but the only other guest apart from our family party of seven seemed to be a solitary ship's captain who was waiting for the 4 a.m. tide, and a local couple who came for a drink with our cousins. The family circumstances of a long-delayed reunion meant that we were too busy to pay attention to the lack of other diners. Having said that we had the full attention of Darryl and his young lady assistant, and they looked after us well. Apart from one or two drinks at the bar, we got through a couple of bottles of crisp South African Chenin Blanc, and two bottles of quite drinkable Cotes du Rhone. My Seafood Gratin starter was nicely presented with good ingredients, other choices were a paté dish, soup and a small dish of scallops. My main course, a venison casserole was perfectly cooked, two of the party had decent sized, but slightly thinly cut sirloins steaks, appropriately cooked. The most popular choice was Sea Bass. In view of the date, they were unsurprisingly fairly small but multiple. and almost certainly frozen and farmed, but they were eaten with relish. Four or five years ago I introduced the previous owner to a professional fisherman friend, who in the season (May through August) catches wild Sea Trout and Salmon in the North Sea not twenty five Miles from Grimsby, and excellent wild Sea Bass all the year round. His prices are quite competitive and his fish would enhance the fare not only of the new management but that of most other restaurants. Some of us managed deserts and / or coffee. We all had a really good evening and the total bill including the various courses and drinks for seven came to a modest £220. The location in a pleasant residential area is excellent and I feel fairly confident that the new management have the will and ability to resurrect this hotel and restaurant. We inspected our cousin's accommodation and it seemed fine for a couple of night's visit. We will no doubt return as the occasion arises.

“Christmas was ruined!”
Reviewed 26 December 2013 via mobile

With there only being three of us this year, we decided to eat out for Christmas dinner and thought The Beeches would be a great way to do it. Afraid not!

For starters (no pun intended), we didn't get the starter that we ordered as there 'was a problem', even though it was pre-ordered before hand, meaning we had to have something we didn't particularly want in replacement of it.

Secondly, the 'traditional' Christmas dinner was by far the worse meal I have eaten for a long time (the local carvery would put the standard to shame). There was no real effort made. The vegetables were very bland and either incinerated to the point they were just mush or were undercook as if eating raw from the garden. I believe it was frozen and of a very low quality. The turkey - dry and very poorly carved - would have been of better use as a door wedge to keep out the draft in the dining room which was very cold when on Christmas Day you want to feel warm and festive. The stuffing was basically Paxo stuffing with a slight effort to disguise some chestnuts inside however pretty bland and tasteless. The roast potatoes I believe were pre cooked that just needed heating through and were not made from scratch.

The meal was very rushed and we weren't asked if we would like to wait between courses. By the time dessert came (which had no problems just slightly too big a portion) the three of us were in low spirits so couldn't really eat any of it.

All in all there was no attention to detail or the standards of a Christmas meal you expect. Whole baby carrots with their tops on, rich flavours, crunchy sprouts with bacon lardons, roast potatoes cooked in goose fat... when paying £50 per head our expectations were rather high and were far from met!

Never again will we eat out on Christmas Day or ever go back here to eat.
