We have been having Sunday lunch at the Whitminster once a month for the last 2 years now. The quallity is excellent, hence the number of re-visits. The carvery is £11 and great value. The service is always great too, making it a no brainer for us.

We ordered a takeaway from the China Garden in Aug 2013 and went for various items including crispy duck pancakes, chicken with cashew nuts, and pork with black bean sauce. To be fair the crispy duck was nice. However, the rest of the meal was not good. In particular, my partners chicken and cashew nut was extremely bland and of... More

Started poorly with the manager, just about making an effort to seat us, to the ordering at the bar, and staff not giving me the carvers tickets, to poor quality carvers with over cooked beef , cauliflower bechamel and messy surroundin, not wroth the...

My partner & I have been to the Whitminster many times and the service is generally good. The Sunday lunch is excellent value and I don't think you can really beat it. I look forward to the next visit.

We did not stay here in the rooms but came for Sunday carvery. The setup was appalling. 3 meats- pork, turkey and beef all crammed together on one board. Not overly appealing. Beef overcooked and therefore dry. Cauliflower cheese watery. Frozen, bought in Yorkshire pudding and dry stuffing. All under "hot lights" next to meat. Roast potatoes soft but not... More
