Reviewed 31 March 2014

Booked for Mother's Day partly of 5 for 12 o'clock. Paid for the carvery choice of 3 meats 4 veg and 2 styles of potatoes. All very edible staff on hand but not pushey some still in training. All in all an easy way to deal with Mother's Day lunch.

“Too many chances...”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

I've never been overly impressed with these type of 'chain of bland microwave' food establishment. Shame they can't have a chef with an individual style of cooking and menu. But, on to my review..
I meant to review back when we had a family Christmas get together but never got round to it. Over 40 of us had pre booked and ordered with plenty of notice. However slow service, mediocre food and cremated kids meals that had to be sent back ruined it. A venue of this size should be able to cope with a party of our size. We (a family meal again, central location to all meet) visited the carvery a few Sundays back, always amazes me how busy it is given the surrounding pubs/restaurants that offer much better food. Rare, chewy beef, over cooked veg and roasties, inadequate young staff and the profiteroles were obviously frozen and really dry. I don't want to return here... Ever!
The owners are always polite and friendly, that I can't deny but think this place has so much potential if only they weren't part of a chain. My advice, spend your hard earned money elsewhere.

“Cheerful service”
Reviewed 3 March 2014 via mobile

A quick stop on the off chance found us here early evening. As soon as we came through the door we were welcomed with a smile. Service was quick and attentive. Food was themed pub style but well cooked and presented. Will call again and recommend.

“Excellent meal well served.”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

We went early and found our reserved table in a great position. The service was most attentive and the food beautifully served. The portions were good and he food tasted great. Highly recommended.

“service?? without a smile.”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

No sign of management, young staff lacking leadership.
On arrival, waited over 10 minutes to get served at bar.
Booking changed from 5 to 6 on previous day, obviously a communication problem somewhere as not registered. After confirming number as 6, shown to table for 5 which was obviously to small for 5 never mind 6. After complaint moved to larger table.
Then a further wait of over 10 minutes in a queu for a ticket for the carvery and on to a queu for the actual meal. Unable to have any beef on our plates as it was not just pink, it was seeping blood.
Although the rest of the food was not bad, by the time we sat down to eat the whole experience had been ruined.
A family birthday outing completely spoiled due to a badly organised establishment and exceptionally bad service.
