A return visit - disappointing

After a long absence, even though just on my doorstep, the better half and I decided to give this another try. My memory of it was great food and good atmosphere.

This place is great for the kids and they can pick and choose exactly what they want and go and help themselves. Unlimited drinks and food. Lots of choices, from carvery to Indian and Chinese. Try to get the early bird deals for the best value (before 6pm)

Full breakfasts at over £8 each and there is no option just to get some tea and toast. Food was however good but I think they need to look... More

very good value for money,4 people can eat & drink as much as you like for under £28[it was an offer].But at the dearest times,still very good value,cant go too often,as you put on too much weight.food is constantly replenished,and is of reasonable quality.Ideal for families,or groups of people that enjoy different things.Will go back again,wish they had a Taybarn...
