we went to a party, the party food was good and the kids had a good time however the play area definitely needs some TLC, the chairs are ripped and the place just looks tired and out of date. love the refillable drinks it definitely gets you through a party.

I stayed at the Premier Inn on the Friday and Saturday night 1st and 2nd of August. We dined in the hotel both nights and staff accommodated us both times at very short notice. The service was excellent as was the food and nothing was too much trouble and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

The daily buffet has a good range and choice for those who want all you can eat sort of dining. The menu choices are good, shame it feels like most are cooked from frozen. The service is really good, typical of a large style chain. You won't get anything unique but you will get filling pub food in a child... More

Typical menu. Nothing very exiting and as we ate for three consecutive nights a bit boring if you don't like chips. Staff were reasonable but busy as all the locals seem to bring their children with them at 6.00 for the eat as much as you like menu. Convenient for the hotel but not much else going for it.

This is a very run down establishment. Dirty carpets, stained seats and peeling furniture do not make for a comfortable place to eat. The food itself is quite poor and offers cheap but very bland meals. I would not eat here again.

Visited Bank Holiday Monday , car park was empty which set alarm bells ringing immediately !! Proceeded to go inside to an equally empty pub , there must have been only a dozen tables taken . The menu choice was really poor and we struggled to find something we fancied , after we did choose our meal we went to... More
