Booked for the 14:30hrs sitting for a table of 14 to celebrate our sons 18th birthday. As Always, the carver was absolutely Fantastic! I doubt very much you would get a meal and service as good as this.... Been here loads of times and will continue t keep coming too....

The table you get is really random. Some are nice but others are crammed in so everyone who queues for their food stares at you add they wait and you eat. Food is average carvery, beef is over cooked.

We had been staying in ebbw vale for the wk/end and our daughter recommended going here. Went on the Sunday for carvery I thought it might be a little bland when it's done for so many but I was pleasantly surprised. Staff were very friendly and helpful and we would to return.

Still a great venue for Sunday lunch and certainly the best value for money. Really good selection. But beware of the kids with their hands in everything and not supervised by their parents. Not the restaurants fault. Just a tip. Ask for an alcove seat. It's quieter and away from the kids

I have to start by saying that the meat was cooked very well - not dried out like most carvery food. That's the good bit. If you like watery vegetables and grey mashed potato with the opportunity to pile your plate so high it falls onto your tray this is the place you. The queue for the food was 45... More
