Good food. Slow service.

Dont get me wrong , the carvery is one of the best in the area but the carvery team are very slow. A queue of twenty people and the carver stops serving to slowly clear his station before serving half the queue, at break-neck speed and then starting to clear his mess again.

The food is always lovely and nothing is ever too much trouble for any member of staff. Everybody serves with a smile and makes every party feel comfortable. Will always return to the trawlerman.

The carvery is one of the best in Cleethorpes, fresh veg and plenty of various meats, also the opportunity to go large.

Lunchtime/early evening carvery is extremely good value. Sweets are very tasty - though a little over priced.

We, a group of four, eat at local places similar to The Trawlerman three or so times each month. The Trawlerman is a typical "brewery chain" carvery. We have experienced most of the local carveries and for us The Trawlerman is definitely the best. You get what you expect, well sorted, no problem areas, everything to a high standard. We... More

However this was all spoiled by a dreadfully long carvery queue. I do understand that when it's busy you have to wait. But this is a carvery, not an a la... More

My most recent visit was on Mother's Day, I booked to surprise my mum and grandma and as usual we were not disappointed. The fact it was completely booked all day is a testament to how good the food is. Not only that the staff are all absolutely lovely, I have never had a bad experience here. I moved away... More
