Food ok but felt rushed

Visited recently with family part of a large group of kids and adults. We booked in advance, upon arrival we were advised we had to leave the table in 1.5 hours as it has been reserved for another sitting! Unfortunately we felt having reserved the table in advance we shouldn't be rushed? Some of... read more

I ate here without huge expectation of quality and in a sense got what I expected. The hardest and most tasteless Yorkshire pudding of my life. Won't be returning any time soon.

This review also appears under Premier Inn Chesterfield North. We had pre-booked a table in the restaurant next door for 8 p.m. but has we had just traveled 140 miles we were on the rather hungry side of starving. So I made my way to the restaurant to enquire if I could get an earlier table. The place was heaving... More

I have recently reviewed the Premier Inn attached to The Lock Kerper but inadvertently put the Beefeater. Apologise for the confusion. I had read reviews on The Lock Keeper some of which hadn't given them a glowing report but we found the food to be well cooked, hot and tasty. We also found the staff and service to be very... More

Cant fault anything with our visit last night. Staff were polite and very helpful, the food was fantastic all freshly cooked and hot. Not a long wait between courses and no problems with anything that came out the kitchen

We stayed at the hotel so on the first night ate here. We had eaten lunch when we arrived and that was perfectly acceptable food, so decided to also have dinner here for speed and convenience. BIG MISTAKE!!! We had starters, I had breaded mushrooms and my partner had chicken goujons. They both looked the same when they came out.... More

Once we'd battled through the cluster of smokers just inside the lobby, we stood at the "Please Wait Here To Be Seated" sign, as the (several!) staff steadfastly ignored us, for over five minutes. This gave us plenty of opportunity to observe the dirty, lacklustre surroundings, and of course the rudeness of the staff, many of whom appeared to be... More
