I booked a table fir 13 for a family meal for my sons birthday. The service was fantastic especially Hannah who couldn't do enough. The food was great and they were more than happy to provide a knife plates and napkins for us to serve up the birthday cake I had made as desert. Highly recommend :)

I went to this restaurant in March 2014. We went for the chicken buffet evening, where you could go and choose which chicken you would like. There were only three choices, and the chicken was swimming in grease. A couple of our friends ordered off the regular menu, and their food looked a lot more appetising. The drinks worked out...

We have just had a short break at the lakeside premier inn and this brewers fayre is next door. Last time we stayed there it was a table table restaurant and in my opinion it should have stayed that way! The first night we ordered food (ordered at the bar which is not what we prefer), the food looked OK... More

This used to be our favourite restaurant but haven't been for quite a few years. What a disapointment this time. The addition of the 'all you can eat fish and chip buffet' on Friday nights (a different choice every night) only cheapened the restaurant. The meal was tasteless and we will never to back. The only positive was that the... More

Two of us ate here. We both had gammon and fried eggs. Eggs - one badly broken, two massively over cooked and hard, one raw on top and very running. Gammon was not nice - tough, over cooked, swimming in oil. I had an upset stomach late that night - my colleague the next day. I'm not saying it was... More

We took a friend to celebrate her recent birthday. The ordering was fine and the staff tried hard to be helpful. Starters were OK and did not take too long. We then waited...and waited...and waited. The restaurant was nearly empty by this stage so pressure was not a reason. I asked a staff member whether they had forgotten our meals.... More

This is one day you expect to go ok, and I can honestly say it went like clockwork. Arrived 15 mins bef our sitting so got a drink from the bar. We were called to our table at our allocated time of 2pm. Staff were very attentive and starter came out within 10 mins. Once finished we could go straight... More
