Never had a bad meal here. It's always pretty busy so be prepared to wait but it's worth the wait. Lots of offers with the new bonus cards.

The food is ok but the staff are the worst I have ever come across extremely rude and unhelpful from when you first enter and you are ignored for up-to ten minutes before being shown to your table then you are treated terribly so rude it beggars belief we are always polite and courteous to people serving us so would...

The service was ok, but the food left alot to be desired. There was no flavour and the burgers were to well done and dry. Very disappointed.

To be honest the Stonecross is overpriced for what you get. It's just a chain charging above average prices for average food and a boring menu. The staff are nice though and always make you feel welcome. Compare the prices to the likes of Applewood Farm or Lymewood farm which the Stonecross is sandwiched between (albeit by a few miles)...

Returned for the second on a family meal against my better judgement. This will certainly be the last time. The service is slow beyond belief. Waited 30 mins for someone to take our order then another 30 mins for our starter to arrive. Half of our mains was cold and had to be sent back. The staff are inexperienced when... More

After reading the reviews on the website I was a bit wary of eating here. After eating here I can see why there are so many bad reviews. Service: We were served by Charles and there are no complaints (very friendly). The service quality dropped when Charles clocked off, I ordered a coffee, and 10 minutes later it was still... More
