Stopped here for a late lunch and we were happy to find the cravery was still available. Better still was the price only £5.95! It's very much an eating pub, ideally located for those visiting the commando base. The interior is bright, airy and nicely decorated. It was fairly busy but both bar and waiting staff were extremely helpful and... More

Had been few times before without problems but this time the food was tasteless, only one choice of meat and no veggie options or only veg at a discounted price, chef was complaining in front of customers and when it brought this up in a polite manner with a manager she was very rude and seemed as if she didn't...

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.

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
