When it comes to roast dinners, we really know our stuff. Every day our chefs lay on a feast of tender, hand-carved meats with all the trimmings - including towering Yorkshire puds, golden roasties with all those lovely little crunchy bits, and plenty of freshly prepared veg, all crowned with proper gravy. So it's no wonder we're Brentwood's favourite carvery restaurant.

Visited Saturday lunchtime arrived at 12.00 Carvery started slicing at 12.20. Pleasant staff , Beef and Pork very nice and good selection of veg. Bread sauce was more like milk though. Since last visit it feels like they have crammed in more tables , the Artichoke is very popular so can understand why however one does feel like you are... More

Carvery is very good, with 4 meats to choose from, nice vegetables and vegetarian alternative. Service though was poor, we waited ages to be asked if we wanted a drink, then ages again for the plates to be cleared away and had to ask for dessert menus and then another long wait for the bill. Still very reasonably priced.

The food was delicious. My only complaint would be the loud spoken man serving the meat. I understood that this was a self serve carvery. He seemed a bit over possesive of the yorkshire puddings and I did only take 1 honestly. Didn't appreciate being spoken down to.

Excellent meal and service on Boxing day. We booked for 4pm, got there 10 minutes early and the table was ready for us. Surprisingly there was only a very short queue for the carvery. Food was very good and cooked just right. Will use again.

The starters weren't as good as last year in my opinion and the stuffing was dry and looked totally unappealing. The roast turkey and beef were very good but they had watered down the English mustard, which I found disappointing. We may look at a new venue next year.
