Our welcome was none too friendly with various staff complaining how tired they were feeling at the end of a busy bank holiday weekend. They might have been glad it was nearly over, but we were new customers looking forward to our evening. To be fair, the waitress at the table was more upbeat and smiley. The carvery was very... More

Very impressed with a recent visit to the Nutwell, very pleasant staff, good choice of menu and a great new look with good decorations. Join the Diamond Club before you go for a good value meal - 2 courses for £7.95 plenty of choice and good portions.

Had a wonderful birthday evening here. Had a relaxing drink in the bar to start with, shown to our table once we had all arrived. Ordered both carvery & from the menu, waitress came to say when the menu food was nearly ready so we could all eat at the same time :) Good deal on the wine at the... More

We were recommended to go for the carvery by a local, whilst we were on holiday in this area last week, and we were not disappointed. The carvery was really good, plenty of options and my vegetarian option was really good. The prices for both adults and children were unbelievable, it's nearly double in our area. Would definitely visit again.... More

Stopped here today for a carvery and I have to say as a previous waitress, I felt very sorry for the staff. They were obviously very short staffed as our service was rushed and bleak. The food was nice but I wouldn't say it was great. After we had finished our food there was no one around to tell us... More

Passed this place and popped in on the off chance of getting a table. What a pleasant surprise. The meat was beautifully cooked, vegetables tasty and all served by very friendly and hardworking staff. We could not believe how reasonably priced our meal was when we got the bill. Having eaten out all week whilst holidaying in the area at... More

Went with two other adults, the staff are attentive but the veg was not very hot and a bit on the dearer side for a carvery. They have a strange way of getting drinks that are ordered at the table where the waiter gives the order to the barman who then goes off gets one drink, walks all the way... More
