Went here as it was close to the hotel, waited at the bar for a long time, service was chaotic and people were being served out of turn with only 1 member of staff serving drinks and taking food orders. The food was okay, but would not recommend the carvery as all the veg was frozen. The beer was not... More

Friday 24th February. Having placed our order at 7:30 for starters and main course we were asked if they could serve it all together. Having said no we then waited 30 minutes for the starters. Eventually the main course came, at 9:05 we tried to place an order for dessert and coffees we were told in a very curt way... More

Where do I start? - in all my life I have never had such a bad experience. Went today for a girls lunch. My friends have been here many times before but they said that the last time wasn't great but they were prepared to try it again. We are all very polite ladies and used to eating out regularly....

The painstaking process of watching an Indian fellow tying to pull 2 pints whilst still wearing his coat (gotta be a first for a barman?), he took over 5 @ 1/2 pints to get the 2 we ordered and seemed to have no clue or concept of pint pouring or wastage?? Took a glance at the "carvery" literally everything had... More

Poor service from a bar tender who clearly had no idea. Food from the carvery was a disgrace, everything had obviously been there all day. All dried up, had a film of skin over it & completely inedible. Baby change had no change unit or mat, so had to change my son on a dirty floor.

I've been here twice since the new management have taken over and it's gone down hill. Food is still nice but we was told to get our own menu's and sit down! Only decent person was the man who used to work there and has returned. Shame the management don't have more staff like him. He's a credit to the... More
