Some friends took me to the Royal Elephant for my birthday. They rang before our visit to see if there was a vegetarian option with the carvery, the were told yes. When we arrived we were told the vegetarian option had sold out. We decided to just have the vegetables. On leaving we picked up a menu for the Xmas... More

I booked a table for myself and some friends for my birthday, I was shocked to see the restaurant empty! There was very little atmosphere and the car very had been under the lights for too long and didn't look at it's best. I have been told that it used to be a very popular Thai restaurant, but the Thai... More

Visited the Royal Elephant recently for an early evening carvery. We had a drink at the bar and paid for our carvery there (£5.50). The meal was excellent. There was plenty of meat, and a vast selection of vegetables. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly. This was not our first visit, every other time we have visited... More

Visited on a Tuesday and apart from a party of six we were the only ones in the restaurant at 7:30. This is a shame and we feel unjustified because the food is lovely. We had Tai although at the time there was a full English Carvery on offer and an Indian Buffet. However, we chose this restaurant because of... More

My wife and I have visited several times now, and each time we visit we witness something disturbing. From the manager shouting at staff and calling them stupid, to getting my bill wrong several times and it coming back full of voids! I wouldn't even bother booking a table on a Sunday as they make you wait at least half... More

We had a family meal on at lunchtime on the Saturday. There were eight of in total. The food was very good with good sized portions, five of us had the carvery that was really tasty and the other three tried the fish and chips that also was very good. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Meals and drinks... More

The service is absolutely terrible. No comment was given to how long we had to wait even though we had booked a table. After 40 mins when we asked "do you know how long our table will be " we got a stern "no! " For someone who has worked within the restaurant business for many years it was obvious... More

On arrival, There were several members of staff walking around, and we wasn't welcomed by one of them. Nobody said hello or guided us to a table. There are no instructions of where to be seated etc.. You are suppose to just walk to the bar which we didn't know about: the staff all talked amongst theirselves about other customers,... More

An excellent family Sunday lunch. The carvery is very good value for money. It is much more up market than the usual carvery. The selection and standard of the vegetables is excellent, only surpassed by the standard of the melt in the mouth meat. Staff are friendly and efficient. The carvery is constantly updated to ensure fresh food through out... More
