We had lunch in the friars head while we were staying on the holiday park. It was great for all the family and the lunch menu was very reasonable. The Staff were very attentive and polite.

“18th birthday meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

my 18th birthday and i had no idea what to do except a meal so my mother suggested the friars head which i was more than happy as i had never been before and had heard it was very nice. On arrival i was impressed by the modern yet rustic style of the restaurant and as we waited for everyone in our party to arrive it was a comfortable scene to be surrounded by. Because we were a large party we'd asked if we could have the private room to which they were only too happy to accommodate us with. The room we were lead into was extremely charming with a greek style vaulted ceiling and paintings. We had already pre ordered so the food came out in good time and although there were 22 of us there was not a huge gap between the first and last people getting their food. Also my grandmother had specified that she didn't want a large serving of her cheese board which they kindly reduced the size of accordingly. I had gone for the sirloin steak with pepper sauce which was cooked to precisely what i ordered and came with an assortment of freshly cooked vegetables and fried diced potatoes which were delicious, no-one had any complaints everyone stated how much they enjoyed the food. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone and would most certainly go again.
