We arrived as a couple on a quiet Saturday afternoon, there were very few people in. Upon arrival, we hung around to be seated for a few minutes (as per the instructions) and was just looked at by a waiter who was messing about with knives and forks and just left us standing around. After a few minutes we decided... More

Not too much choice around the area and have known beefeater for years. So service great and food typical for a beefeater so ok. Beer not great at the time. Served a very cloudy pint which the barman said had been off for 2 days but no one told the waiting staff. happy to change it though. nice evening.

Given the location and price of the Duck, it's always been a popular choice for big family meals. When I say big, I mean between 6 and 10 people. A few years ago this was a favourite of mine that delivered what it says but the past twelve months I've been here 5/6 times and been really disappointed. A couple... More

We were greeted with a smile and our waiter was introduced. Atmosphere was very relaxing in the restaurant. Food was well presented and main thing for it was served promptly and piping hot! My husband's steak was cooked to perfection (medium rare). Slight criticism my starter the Garlic King Prawns was a bit dried out that there were no sauce... More

We decided to eat here with friends without checking any reviews as it was a last minute decision. We hadn't booked but as it was a week day there were available tables. We all went for the weekday offer of 3 courses for £14.49 and it was really good value. We all chose steak meals which have an extra charge... More

Previous review (from a year ago) still stands. Expensive, particularly drinks. Order somehow cocked up. My medium well steak with thin chips turned up as well done steak with fat chips. Lucky I am not particularly fussy. Food quite nice, just not quite what I ordered.

We initially selected this as a central meeting place for a lunchtime work celebratory event. I last visited here more than twenty five years ago when it was just a pub! As I hadn't been to a Beefeater for a long time, I wasn't sure what to expect. Walking to the front of the building from the free car park... More

Visited yesterday with husband and two kids, 8&5, and had a very enjoyable meal. Both starters of mushrooms and potato skins were delicious and both the fillet steak and the porterhouse were cooked to perfection. The children had the create your own pizza followed up with create your own sundaes and both went down a treat. The waiter, Kevin I... More

We visited on a Friday evening. We found the food to be very good and the staff very friendly. Our drinks were brought to us very quickly and we didn't have to wait a long time go out food either. The restaurant has a nice feel to it, and we would definitely visit again if we were in the vicinity.
