This restaurant is always chaos on a Sunday, as it's clearly popular. On this visit though something above and beyond took place to my father, who has some disabilities, which means he has to use a stick (was a wheelchair). JULIA needs special recognition, as she not only sat my parents speedily amidst the chaos, but then proceeded to help... More

I have eaten at this carvery many times over 20 years and never disappointed with the food and the ales. Be warned though as it gets very very busy at weekends so get there early or wait for the lunchtime rush to die down as we do.The food is still replenished all the time and of a high standard

Visited here when staying at the Premier Inn next door. The carvery food is average, the meats were a bit dry and tough and all the vegetables and potatoes needed to be hotter. The service in the evening was somewhat slow - there didn't seem to be enough staff although the waitress was pleasant. Breakfast was very unsatisfactory for the... More

A party of 7 of us went last week for breakfast and everyone of us have had a bad tummy since. Not a lot of choice either, no fresh fruit or cereals, had to pay extra if you wanted juice and a coffee. One of the worst buffet style breakfasts I have had. AVOID !

Arrived early evening and advised that there would be a 5 to 10 minute wait, the young lady then wandered of and forgot about us. After about 15 minutes we asked another member of staff who apologised and took us to our table. Good choice of meats and vegetables and as a fresh beef had arrived we both chose that... More

Stayed next door so had a meal and brekkie here. The lunchtime meal was great, turkey bap and access to the carvery, really filling, tasty and great value.

Cannot fault this place, love the food, love the service. Will continue to come here. I would definately recommend this place. If not for food there is the pub section which is lovely and is a great destination for dates.
