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

Late one afternoon we decided to try to book a meal for that evening. We booked and arrived in plenty of time for the meal. When we arrived, and made ourselves known to the staff they showed us to our table. We ordered the carvery which was superb also the sweet which was a sundae. This was undoubtedly one of... More

Had to wait 25 mins for a starter without being told it would delay our other meals... More

Arrived to a grunt by one member of staff and that was the highest level of communication we received all evening. Food was ok, but again, carvery chefs very rude. Made for an all together awkward and unplesent experience.

Had a meal in this restaurant last Saturday. The carvery was very good with usual choice of meats and a nice selection of vegetables. For dessert I chose the fruit trifle as my original choice of fresh fruit salad was not available as they had no fresh fruit! I was disappointed with the trifle as it had little fruit, lots... More

During December I ate twice here. Firstly with my works colleagues and a week later on Christmas day with my family. On both days we received very good service, atmosphere was very good and food was as delicious as always. On times there is a short wait before you get taken to your table, but that's happened in all the... More

Terrible, terrible place! Rude staff, packed carpark and the many reviewers on here must be massively easy to please!
