Ate at the Beefeater whilst staying at the Twin Bridges Premier Inn next door. The staff was attentive and very polite even on what seemed to be a very busy night. Atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Food was decent however the costs were quite high and the portions were not that big. For a soft drink , starters and main... More

For a party of twelve , prebooked I was expecting a really good experience. .... But it was let down by poor service and low quality food ( fried cod minus half it's batter, tired salad, undercooked potatoes, sludgy Brie and mushrooms) . All topped off by waiting staff who had no idea what they were bringing!

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

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
