“Nice enough but....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2012

The problem with the Torrs warren is consistency. I`ve had great meals and extremely bland meals there. Sometimes its easy for chefs to disguise microwave food and sometimes it isn`t. Basic things like seasoning is overlooked. But all in all a decent enough place.

“A delicious dinner at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2012

We visited Torrs Warren on a balmy summer evening and had a drink outside in the scenic and peaceful gardens before going inside to dine. We fully enjoyed our meals, great value for money and had good banter with Mine Host Jim. Friendly locals and residents too and we would highly recommend the Torrs Warren for a varied and value menu.

“Advertises fresh local produce but relies too heavily on frozen food for the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2011

We visited on a weekday lunchtime and ate in the bar. Pleasant old fashioned surroundings and friendly service but food quality is lacking for the price bracket. Everything was plentiful and piping hot. We had the biggest basket of chips you've ever seen served between us but they were of the skinny frozen type. Our veg was frozen on the most part - if not all, but was nice enough. The breaded haddock was seriously overbreaded and concealed frozen fish which was a bit watery. With main course prices around £8.95, it just wasn't good enough. Huge portions again for dessert but didn't make up for the strange texture which, I suspect, owed much to a microwave.
They do a two course lunch special at £10.95 which offers improved value but there are better places in the area in the same price bracket.
