Could do better

The decor is tired; the facilities seem not to get checked (pools of liquid under the urinals, which ponged as did the urinals themselves); music in the public areas seems set to a volume to keep the staff happy, rather than one at which customers can converse readily without having to raise their... read more

I went for lunch with a friend, I had the salmon which was very overcooked and dry. Dauphin potatoes were watery and bland. Very expensive for what you got. If it wasn't for the really nice waitress I would have given only one star, wont be eating there again.

We visited here on Father's Day and having visited here for many years can truthfully say it is the worst meal we have ever had there . On being seated at 7pm the Manager said they were busy and there was a delay in food however I found 1 hour and 15 mins rather excessive to wait for our starter.... More

The normal procedure for a typical chain restaurant is not a hard one to follow. After eating in beefeaters previously and thought they were ok. The food here however, was abysmal, you could tell there was no effort, no passion no inspiration. Its as though the staff knew they were working at a chain restaurant. This meant that there was...

We recently visited here with friends without booking, on a busy evening but we were soon found a table even though the restaurant was busy, and had a very good evening with very good service and food and drinks. There is a very good menu selection and all the food we had was good. We received money off the bill... More

Staying in the area we went to the Beefeater . It's ages since we've been in to one and glad we did. Very helpful and welcoming staff. Nice menu - had steak / fries etc- followed by delicious apple and cherry crumble. Service great. Lovely food at a decent price. Couldn't ask for more!
