Visited 9/7/14 8pm. Busy but not crowded. Carvery was very good, my meat was turkey & gammon. No complaints whatsoever; no room for sweet. Didn't use salad bar so can't comment.

Six of us went for a meal Monday at noon. It soon got very busy. We ordered six carveries dinks and most of us had desserts. The meats were succulent- I had beef and pork. The choice of vegetables was extensive again and particularly enjoyed the roast and other potatoes e.g. dauphinoise. I love the horseradish sauce here. I had... More

Lovely warm welcome for our party of 6 on Saturday lunch time, and excellent service, with very friendly attentive staff. This despite the fact that the restaurant was very very busy, so pleased we booked a table! Food was plentiful and very good with just a couple of reservations - we thought the salad bar was a bit unimaginative, and... More

We last had a meal at the Nailers in March to celebrate my sister's birthday and we had a lovely meal and good service. However, when we recently returned for a carvery meal the food was ok but much of it was not very hot and the chef serving that night was not on form,he seemed not to care whether... More

We probably visit about once a month and have never had a bad meal here. Service is a bit hit and miss but the quality of food and price make up for the sometimes slow service. Carvery is AMAZING, and so much nice than anything from any chain. Love this place.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post your wonderful review on Trip Advisor. We took over the pub in February 2009 when it was an a-la-carte restaurant and soon realised that we needed to change the decor and food offering concept as the business was sadly failing. The Carvery was installed in November 2009 and I am... More

Food was outstanding. The only thing that lets this place down is the service. The whole point in going out is to be dined on, no table service or table checks, good job I liked my food! Will return only due to the lovely food.

Called in midweek after noticing that the car park was full (always a sign of good food). We weren't disappointed. Fabulous carvery with tender meat and a great selection of fresh veg...emphasis on the word fresh. The place was really tastefully decorated and it had a great atmosphere. Very impressed and will definitely return
