What it says on the tin

Nothing special but, that said, the fish and chips we had were cooked fresh and hot and tasted lovely.

I am a well travelled foodie and have driven past Beefeaters for years. My children booked me a table for my birthday so I duely went with my kids. Wow. Its great. It good quality ingredients, served creatively, with well trained middle aged servers and all at a good price. Superb.

Food bring left to go cold instead of being served. Manager testing warmth of soup with finger. Other staff putting finger into sauces and licking off.

We stayed here on 10th July. Will never eat in this Beefeater again. We saw food left waiting to be served for 20 minutes. Plenty of plate shuffling. We watched the manager test warmth of soup with his finger that had been left waiting and served this up to someone! Wrote to Whitbread about it but not even courtesy of... More

It's not the first time I've been, but it will certainly be the last (& that's not the first time I've said but this was the final straw!) Their kitchen & staff can not cope with the number of guests they can sit at any one time... 2 hours it took for our food to come out! Yes, it was... More

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 voices to compete with the muzak. Very... 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...
