I went last night with my family for a meal . First thing everyone had to have a carvery as the wait time was 45 minutes for food off the menu ! Quite ridiculous when it wasn’t even a full restaurant . The beef on the carvery was so tough my poor niece had to leave it . An now the parking issue !! Luckily we were delayed before leaving an saw a man use a machine to put his number plate in . We queried this with the bar maid an she said “weren’t you told?” Clearly not ! Apparently you have to punch in your number plate on arrival or you will be charged for parking . £100!!!! She claimed there are loads of signs around . Well the machine to put your number plate in is stuck near the fruit machines in the corner ! Not clearly visible. There is a small sign on the bar saying “ dear guest ....” an when we went out to the car park the signs which say “ maximum stay 3hours “ were so high up it was laughable! They should be at eye level an even then there should be more on the door as you walk in an someone to greet you an explain ! My 75 year old Dad is certainly not looking up when he’s parked his car an when there’s a crowd at the bar you can’t see the measly sign ! In the dark aswell the signs were rubbish . It’s easy for businesses to say “there’s plenty of signs” but when they’re put up too high or in a corner then it’s obvious it’s all about money making . The service has gone down hill at grove farm aswell so won’t be visiting again .
