Super Sunday lunch

called in without booking for Sunday lunch. Lovely beef and fresh veg. The puddings were also great, as was the local beer, which was not expensive like in some restaurants. Two courses for under ten pounds is fantastic. The gent serving was a bit loud at times- very enthusiastic and obliging, but... read more

After a long day sightseeing, we couldn't have asked for a nicer, more welcoming atmosphere than Beresford's. The food was tasty and filling, especially for such a reasonable price, but the staff made it a truly lovely meal.

I booked by phone for two people on a Tuesday night. Drove five miles to get there , and five minutes before the booked time I got a phone call in the car to say that a group of people had arrived , and the restaurant would not now be able to accept my booking. Very unprofessional !

Tried here for the first time yesterday & unfortunately will probably be the last! Food was very good (when finally arrived!) & the waiter was very polite & hard working but......now for all the negatives! Pork escalope sounded good & was advertised as a meal on two outside menus but when inside had disappeared of all menus. Waited almost an... More

We visited this restaurant as a large party for my Dads 60th from a friend’s recommendation. The food was excellent, and the service was A+. I noticed a previous reviewer saying the waitress was miserable, well our waitress actually made two trips to taxi us back to the white cross bay resort after our meal. Service does not get any...

My husband and I had Sunday lunch here today with our 2 teenage sons. The food was good quality, delcious and beautifully presented. The service was professional but friendly and relaxed. We were amazed at the quality we enjoyed for the £9.95 we paid for 3 courses. Generous portions of tender salmon and beef with a good selection of veg... More

We ate here the other night on the way back to our hotel. We were able to chose from the saver menu- 2 courses for £13. The portions were large and the food was excellent

The food was lovely, service great, desserts to die for :-) it wasn't too busy like some places, prices not too bad they did have deals on for 2 or 3 courses for a set amount which was good value.
