Good food, would definitely visit again

A beefeater that is like most attached to a premier inn, offers a meal deal which was good value and easy to use. Staff were friendly and service although slow in the evening was not enough to make a deal about. Fill of fa,likes having enjoyed CWOA as it is literally next door. The breakfast... read more

Love this place just went in for a coffee and cake. Fab staff. It was busy and we where never forgotten. It's such good value for money.

Nicely decorated restaurant and conveniently situated if you are visiting Chessington World of Adventures. On arrival it was busy but not full and were told it would be an hours wait for a table (even though there were tables that remained available throughout the 3 hrs we were there - yes 3 hrs!) but that we could sit in the...

We visited for dinner while staying at the Chessington Resort Hotel. We didn't have a booking at the restaurant so were offered to sit in the bar which was ok for us. There were plenty of choice of tables considering it was after 7pm. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Julie was fantastic, she has excellent customer service skills... More

We were staying at the Premier Inn next door to the Monkey Puzzle so ate dinner and breakfast here. The staff, especially the manager were friendly and really made a fuss of our two grandchildren. The evening meal and more so the breakfast were both excellent and really good value for what we paid. All food was hot and service... More

I can't understand the negative reviews for this place. We ate dinner and breakfast here and have no complaints at all. The staff were extremely friendly, the food was good, particularly breakfast. Guests can also dine in the bar area which we did because the restaurant seating area was full. We would definitely eat here again next time we stay... More

We went here for our meal on the last day of being at chessington. We went at 7.30 and it was a little busy so we did have to wait for our food. The prices where not to bad and the kids meals where no more then £5.99 for a 3 course meal. There is plenty to choose from. The... More

We arrived after a day at Chessington as to avoid rush hour traffic. Whilst the couple in front of us were shown to a table by a waitress we were told by the same waitress when she came back just to pick a table, which seemed odd. We sat down and looked at the menu, going up to the bar... More
