Had a carvery here with a business colleague. Yes it's a bit dated as other reviewers have rightly pointed out but the staff were very helpful and the carvery itself was very good indeed. I would much rather sit in a dated room eating a quality meal than sit in a modern trendy bistro eating poor quality food! I have... More

a few years ago this used to be a lovely place for a Carvery meal but its sadly gone downhill. Little communication from waiting staff and when did most of them with the exception of a a young barman were rude and unfriendly. Had to wait 25 mins for a starter without being told it would delay our other meals... More

Arrived to a grunt by one member of staff and that was the highest level of communication we received all evening. Food was ok, but again, carvery chefs very rude. Made for an all together awkward and unplesent experience.

Had a meal in this restaurant last Saturday. The carvery was very good with usual choice of meats and a nice selection of vegetables. For dessert I chose the fruit trifle as my original choice of fresh fruit salad was not available as they had no fresh fruit! I was disappointed with the trifle as it had little fruit, lots... More

I always try and avoid this place like the plague, but every so often I get dragged there against my will to celebrate a senior member of my family's birthday. You're hurded in like cattle through the most unwelcomeing bar you've ever seen, past the very disheveled deco and in to the pit of dining DOOM!. Then you line up... More

During December I ate twice here. Firstly with my works colleagues and a week later on Christmas day with my family. On both days we received very good service, atmosphere was very good and food was as delicious as always. On times there is a short wait before you get taken to your table, but that's happened in all the... More

Terrible, terrible place! Rude staff, packed carpark and the many reviewers on here must be massively easy to please!

We attempted to have a Sunday carvery at this place, Very nice on the outside, went through the main entrance only to be greeted with closed fire doors, and another party looking as well how to get in. Only when someone came through one of the doors we got into a outdated bar. Felt very awkward at this point but... More

My Wife and I went for Sunday Lunch on 15/09/2013 and what a nice meal we had, plenty of meat at the carvery, a HUGE Yorkshire pud and all the veg you could eat all nicely cooked not sloppy as I have had in some carvery s. The service was good, we had to queue at the carvery but it... More
