My wife and I popped in on the way home for a late lunch and were very pleasantly surprised. The menu. Is very simple but what you would expect from this type of restaurant. We both had burgers, my wife had a beefburger and I chose the chicken burger,both with ultimate fries! The fries were how... read more

Husband and I went for a meal here and ordered the chicken and ribs plus the Ultimate fish, it was mid week and not busy. Drinks arrived promptly but the food was just left to cook under the hot light -by the time fish arrived batter was solid but fish watery underneath, so bad couldn't eat it and sent straight...

We are regular customers and the service and food are usually reasonable. Today, there was a member of staff who had difficulty operating the till and required the assistance of her colleague and then her manager. She was unaware that on Saturdays there is a "kids eat free" offer and when I mentioned that I had told her when ordering... More

Staying in the affiliated premier inn next door, I chose to dine in the Beefeater after finishing work late. Well what a pleasant surprise! My yard stick is always a rare steak. The rare ribeye was cooked to perfection. Alright the waitress reeked of tobacco, but at the end of the day it's how well the food turns out, right?... More

The food was very tasty and was served at just the right time. A very friendly, cheery waitress tended to our every need and that improved the whole experience. Overall a very good restaurant I'd say. However, the restaurant was very quiet on this day so the staff may not be quite so attentive on more busy nights.

Was greeted by Charlie a smart efficient young lady who directed me to a table with speed. Dined twice in the restaurants once in the bar. Food on all occasions was great, I favoured the restaurant as the bar staff served food to the table then advised the cutlery was back over at bar. It would have been advisable to... More

Planned to go to a different local pub but after terrible service, decided to pop in here, we were greeted by a friendly smart waiter & quickly seated. We ordered the Sunday roast - of which the beef, roast potatoes, veg & Yorkshire pudding were beautiful! Fantastic quality, quantity & service from the welcoming team. Will definitely be making a...

We visited Beefeater around the Christmas period and expected it to be packed, it wasn't overly full so we had plenty of space to put our car seat next to the table. My son had his first ever meal from a menu here and absolutely loved it, delving into the pretty good looking piece of chicken and peas. When desert... More
