Very disappointing

Ate here with my wife and 2 children as a stopover at the Premier Inn on the way back from France. The place was packed but we managed to get a table in the bar area and ordered our food. The adult meals came but not the ones for the children. When we asked the waiter where they were it... read more

I have been here on many occasions and have always been impressed with the potential of a spectacular position. The food today was spectacularly dreadful and an insult to customers. I had a double steak burger and fries which was probably the worst I've ever tasted. It was dry over cooked with a half prepared brown tinged lettuce leaf a... More

I have fond memories of this place we have had some lovely family meals here but don't know what's gone wrong, it seems to have gone really down hill. I booked a table here for us whilst we were on holiday visiting family and thought this would be a nice place to treat them to a meal...!!! First of all... More

' We noticed the chef's just standing around and some of... More

I used to like this Beefeater, have visited on many occasions for a cheeky pint, burger and chips (and it used to be good!). Visited with the family and wow, the standards have dropped. the food was poor, average at best. and just looked as if it was dumped on the plate. It appeared that no care was given to... More

Went on a Saturday lunch time, there for opening. Food was ordered quite quickly, just mains, not starters. We saw 3 other tables that sat down after us get through 2 courses before my wife had to go find our waitress and chase our food. Only to find our 11 month daughters food sitting on the pass. We were of... More
