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 Only when someone came through one of the doors we got into a outdated bar.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

This is my favourite place to eat on a sunday. The service is excellent, particularly the welcome I get from the guy carving the meat, so friendly! The carvery is second to none, great choice and tastes excellent. Sometimes its very busy, but at this quality what can you expect? Price is excellent when you compare what you pay in... More

Went for a family Sunday lunch recently. Whilst the food was lovely and plentiful, the carvery style setting was awkward in that there were long, long queues of people waiting for their food. This wasn't helped by only one person carving and serving the meats (choice of beef, turkey, pork or a slice of all 3). The carvery allows second... More

My daughter and son in law took us out for our 35th anniversary and we decided to try the Bessemer Hotel for their much acclaimed carvery. The hotel is pleasantly set out with various room options for different size parties. Along with our two grandsons there were 6 of us and we had a ample sized table set in the... More

I used to go to the Bessemer regularly, had my daughter's christening there but now I regret it! The restaurant was over busy, had to queue half an hour to get our food and we were chucked out our table because they had over booked and people were waiting! When my husband mentioned that after our food, we still had... More

We regularly eat in the Bessemer on a Sunday. Booking is advised as it does get booked up. I always opt for the Carvery and have never had a bad meal. The meat is always cooked to perfection and the large selection of vegetables are always piping hot and delicious. I can't comment on the starter as I have ever... More
