I have given up with this restaurant in the evenings. After several bad experiences here, their food is always warm at best, the service is normally slow and the portion sizes are tiny. You are better off going down the road to the dapple grey or frankie and bennys for tea, however being connected to a premier inn the breakfast... More

Looked nice when presented but after taking top of pie off there was about half an inch of filling in dish with scraggy chicken & ham. Called waitress over to show her and asked... More

I stayed at the attached Premier Inn for a couple of weeks back in May. The restaurant can get busy with families attending the nearby Alton Towers theme park, particularly at weekends, bank and school holidays. Although a busy restaurant I found the staff to be very helpful and considerate to a solo visitor on business. In particular Clare who... More

We visited here for lunch on 8 April 2014. From the outside it looked a nice place to eat and the menu on the outside appeared tempting. It was after 1pm when entered the restaurant and the young woman on duty gave a could not care less attitude. It is very dim inside and we asked for a table nearer... More

Table Table restaurant on the site of a premier inn hotel. Food is ok - decent choice but a typical chain type menu and standard. Staff are quite helpful and friendly and it's always a busy place. Wouldn't make a special journey but its ok for what it is -

I have to say I was very disapointed with a meal I had here recently, visited as a group of 6 one afternoon and seemed to wait ages before we were seated (even though resturant was half full at best) when we eventually got seated the menu was very poor, again waited an age to get our orders taken and...

We enjoyed a wonderful Christmas Day meal at this venue. Food was excellent and so were the staff. We had 6 guests in our party and we all commented how much we had each enjoyed our meals and how we will certainly be booking for next Christmas. We were allowed small gaps inbetween our courses to allow time to digest,... More

Called in with a view tro eating after a day at the races, ordered tea for the 'good lady' and i had a pint. The beer was OK but the tea tasted of cleaning fluid or something, it was taken away and remade. The results were equally as revolting, so it was not drunk. We decided that if the tea... More
