Went to the Nutwell lodge last Sunday. Tried twice to call to book a table, the phone just rang and rang with no answer so I gave up. In the end we just turned up. We were told we'd have to wait 25 mins because all the tables were full! In deed half were empty, so maybe we'd like to... More

I visited this place a couple of years back and the carvery was nice but this year I had a salmon and it was terrible. I don't know how often this place cooks salmon but I have it weekly and it should be at least a little bit pink. Instead it was dry as if frozen before and disgusting with... More

The Nutwell has undergone many changes over the years and the current setup is well thought out and simple to navigate around the tables and well laid out with the food area nice and open. The principal reason that we attend this hotel on a regular basis is because the carvery is quite splendid. You are never overburdened with the... More

It would be hard to beat the excellent value of the Nutwell Lodge carvery. What more could you ask for than freshly cooked meat and vegetables at £5.95! And if you have one of their Diamond cards you can get two courses for £7.95. It's becoming a regular place for us to visit if we don't feel like cooking. There's... More

Several times now I've popped in here and I don't learn. The service is poor the food is generally tasty but not as hot as I would expect. Getting a table takes ages im sure they Palm you off to the bar to increase takings. I will learn to give this place a miss no more chances
