Fab carvery meat!

We went here quite late in the evening 8pm, so was not expecting carvery to be great. We were wrong, all 3 meats on offer were lovely, and lots of it. Some of the veg was dry, but we were late eating so I would expect it to have been fine earlier on. Good value for money and nice beer... read more

Visited today as a normal Friday treat. Service at the till and the food was fantastic. However when we went to the carver we found him very rude. My boyfriend couldn't hear what he said so the carver proceed to shout at my boyfriend making him feel 2 feet tall! It's not like it was busy ( we was first... More

We visited on a Sunday which we obviously knew was going to be busy, we ordered drinks and midway through serving us the bar staff decided to have their own conversation leaving us to wait. I was asked if I wanted ice in two of the drinks and I replied yes please, once the drinks were ready I had to... More

I go to The Trawlerman every week with my parents, We all love it. The food is always warm, there's a large selection of veg, 3 different meats (Beef is lovely, my favourite). Staff are all nice and polite. Why some have given this place a 1 I have no idea??

We visited here in Sunday for Sunday dinner. It was massively understaffed. We sat for drinks and paid for carvery. Went up to wait in the queue and were told roast potatoes would be 20 minutes. We decided to sit and have a drink. The queue was zig zagged all the way around the restaurant. They had hash browns which... More

A limited menu weekday evenings so most people go for the carvery. Meat (beef, gammon, turkey) was succulent & tender. What impressed most was the veg. Crispy roast potatoes of course but cauliflower, beans, cabbage, peas and sweetcorn all cooked to perfection. That means cabbage was crisp, not soggy. Peas were petit pois. Cauliflower was au gratin. Summary - great... More

As far as pub chain cavery's go this is one of the better places to visit. Feed a family of 4 with drinks for under £30 is superb value considering the portion sizes are humongous! 😜
