Good food, service slow and understaffed

Food was decent enough hot and fresh, staff friendly however the place is very understaffed, they were rushed off there feet. Such a shame as before it became waiter/ress table service it was infact much better.

Spacious, attractive setting, with masses of room indoors or out. Good choice of pub grub which was tasty and very well priced. However, we ate late on a Saturday evening, and the service was disappointing. Staff were inattentive, seeming more focussed on catching up on a considerable backlog of tables which required clearing from earlier in the evening. There was... More

We have visted overstone manor a few times. Whilst the food is usually pretty good the service is very slow since they have changed to the new table service. We like to choose our table. Had to wait ages for drinks and then ages again for someone to take our order and then even longer to pay. Bring back the... More

Undercooked chicken, over cooked meat, dried out on the carvery and a hair in the veg and all I got was ' I'll tell the chef' . Used to go here regularly but the standard has gone way down .

Went on a Sunday afternoon, the place was quite quiet, the service was awfully slow and poor. Tables were left with dirty plates for a good 45minutes before being cleared, although staff were walking past constantly. Full table service, why offer this if you can't get it. Drinks order taken twice before going to the bar to get the drinks,... More

We visit this venue a lot as the location is good nice peaceful views. The tables a spaced nicely apart without hearing the next tables conversation.(as is often the case) there is now a whacky warehouse on site so the kids are sorted. There is an abundance of helpful staff on the floor something that was lacking before. Rather than... More

On the good side it is a lovely venue and building but is now tired. The tables were unbelievably sticky and dirty as were the menus - probably a health hazard. My coffee cup had lipstick on it. The service was slow and there didn't seem to be enough staff to cope. The food was ok ( I had the... More

Very good value, food nicely cooked (though chips a bit soggy). Kids could be a problem earlier in the evening
