As a regular visitor to this restaurant, I can say it is by far one of the best in terms of both service and quality. It's nice to be recognised as '''regular" and in particular Courtney, Daria and James are very welcoming and look after their guests throughout their stay. I work in a customer service driven business and these... More

We only went to the Duck because our restaurant was surprisingly closed. Given that we had little in the way of expectation. The restaurant is it so seated with the budget hotel and to be honest the food was excellent and the service was very good indeed.

We were served by a very friendly gentleman by the name of Kevin who took us to our table and looked after us during our lunch. Our... More

Dined at the beefeater after staging at the adjoining premier inn. Restsurant was busy but nothing seemed too much for the staff our waitress Vicky was fabulous, chatty and attentive. Would book this premier inn again just for the quality of the food and service

I went for a meal here with friends from work at Christmas. The food was in general very good value. The soup starter was delicious as was the desert which was after eight ice cream . the only draw back was no potatoes except roast with main meal. The service was good and the staff very attentive.

Bad :- We made the mistake of going to this restaurant after 9.30 While I understand that after a busy night some popular food items run out BUT the food quality & present ion was appalling . We asked to speak to the manager and was told she will be waiting at the end of the bar... More
