Just returned from our third or fourth visit to the Parkway restaurant for Sunday lunch. This is an excellent venue for a relaxed Sunday lunch and it seems to carry on serving meals for most of the day as far as I can see!
Choose from around 5 starters which are brought to your table. Then order from around 8 mains - 3 of which are meats from the carvery (turkey, beef and lamb being typical). If you choose a main NOT from the carvery it's brought to your table direct. If you choose from the carvery the choice of vegetables, sauces and extras is impressive. You don't touch a thing by the way - just in dicate what you wish to have on your plate. A waiter then follows you back to your table with your meal.
Desserts are displayed on a trolley and brought to your table for you to choose. There is one hot dessert listed on the menu as well!
The service is generally excellent and the whole show seems to run like clockwork under the direction of a VERY 'hands-on' manageress - well done to her and her efficient young staff.
Value for money? Most certainly - better than average I'd say. Lunch for 3 with beers and mineral water came to £68 (no coffee). Not bad considering you have the run of a very comfortable hotel with loads of room for large parties to lounge around having coffee or drinks either before or after lunch.
Try it - you'll probably return again and again after comparing it with other Sunday lunch venues in the area.
