We went here for a late lunch because we had a voucher to use before the end of the week. We were very pleased with everything the restaurant could offer. We were greeted as soon as we walked through the door by a smiling waitress. We were shown immediately to a table. The fillet steaks were cooked to perfection and... More

On entering, we went to wait for a table and a lady came and said she just had to clear some tables and for us to go to the bar for a drink and she will come and get us. I could see plenty of laid tables so I am not quite sure why she said this. On entering the... More

This pub is a historic location that has served the Bracknell area for many years. We had several breakfasts there while staying at the Premier Inn behind it, and we met friends for a nice lunch one day during our stay. There are at least three major restaurant chains in the UK that specialise in updating such places as this... More

Had a really good meal, however had to wait 30 minutes for the starters. Had to keep reminding the waitress of our drinks. The waitress looked about 16 and was good but needs more confidence as looked scared most of the time,However the food was good. Big thumbs up for the manager, you could hear complaints left right and centre... More

A useful pit stop on the way from the M4 to the M25. We normally just stop for a toilet break / drink but on this occasion we had lunch. My bangers & mash was very good,my wife had a chilli. Drinks was Fullers London Pride, the Breakspears was off.

We were quickly seated. Menus arrived and then drinks. Starters took ages and were ok but mains were a long time. The waitress asked if we needed any sauces, we requested them and then she took payment from another customer and we had to request them again by which time the food was only warm! Half of my steak was... More

From the moment we arrived and were told we didnt have a reservation but were seated as restaurant was nearly empty, to the half hour wait between courses. The waitress dropping countless things including cutlery into my lap, not being given side orders, steak really overdone. Staff disappearing for a chat for ages at a time. The next night we... More
