Had a voucher for a free drink from Marstons so thought I'd give here a try while in Weston. Wasn't particularly busy on a Thursday evening but a few in and I got a good window view seat.

We came here for a evening meal and both had the steaks. Unfortunately the tomatoes must have been in contact with some oily fish and completely tainted the rest of the meal. We managed to eat the steaks but the rest wasn't pleasant. We mentioned this to the young waiter , who was very helpful, and we had hoped the...

Hi Boatjude Thanks for the review. I'm sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your meal. I am not sure why the tomatoes were tainted in that way as we do follow very strict procedures in terms of preparation and I assure you I shall look into the matter. I'm glad you thought the young waiter was very helpful....

Visited weston with friends. Have been to the old colonial before and was impressed so returned. Food was ok for the price but portions were small. Very long waiting time between courses ( it wasnt busy) and seemed to have too many staff on who were mostly just stood at the bar chatting. Inside decor needs some attention as parts...

Popped in today for Sunday lunch, warmly greeted by the bar staff. Delicious sunday roast and pudding; excellent value for 2 courses at £11.99 !! Hope to have Christmas Dinner here this year. Cosy, great value and atmosphere - complete with a beautiful view of Weston. Planning on this being a regular haunt for us. :)
