I am not one to ever write a bad review about anywhere as I work in customer service and know the strains it can be put under, but in this case I will make an exception. After calling to book a table and the young girl answering with no idea of what time of day it was, sort of set... More

The Nutwell Lodge, having been closed for quite a period for refurbishment has now re-opened. The improvement to the decor and general ambiance is much better, but unfortunately the service is just as bad as it aways was and in fact may be worse. The food is still good value and presented well, but the wait for both drinks and... More

We were greeted well enough but that was it. The food and drinks took over 40 mins to arrive, we complained only to be told that we should have been told that there was a 40 min wait due to some large parties. The food was very average, I had the carvery which tasted nothing special although the meat was... More

The service was so bad, that we thought the food would be better. Oh how wrong were we , the food was disgusting , looked like it had been thrown on to the plate and left for 30 mins before it was brought to our table .

The Nutwell is going down hill in respect of its overall organization and service. We had a very poor experience. Knowing that this place can get busy we had 'phoned throughout the day to try for a booking at 7.00pm. Nobody answered the 'phone, despite letting it ring and ring! When we arrived at 6.55pm it was chaotic at the... More

Good value food and friendly staff. I wasn't so impressed before the refurbishment and staff upgrade but now things are so much better. I enjoy the choice on the menu and the carvery is always well cooked and the meat excellent. Enjoy.
