“A restaurant/bar that does not serve decent beer”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Probably one of the only bars in England, attached to a Premier Inn that is not interested in serving any choice of ales.

4 pumps... all serving Black sheep bitter ...no other ales, just the usual stella, becks, heineken.

I have been to at least 15 Premier Inns in UK and they all have some choice in ales. This place continues with its policy of one beer. Nothing else..just Black Sheep.

So , despite the staff being pretty good, its time to stop going. 1 star- show some initiative and get some choice of ales on for goodness sake. Harsh, but its been like this for 6 years now..a joke!

“Is what it says on the tin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Just round the corner from where we live so a regular haunt.
Food always consistent, service staff friendly and helpful, nice place to eat and chat.
Always good selection of well kept local and guest ales
Only negative comment I have is between 5 & 6 pm there is a confusion as to which menu to order from. "Teatime" stops at 5 and "dinner" starts at 6 so a bit of a bad time to order as NO offers available.

“Average at best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

Poor service from unfriendly staff members. Food took over 40 miniutes to arrive and was average. Some members of staff are clearly more bothered about breaks than the customer at hand. Very off putting being able to hear microwaves ping from your table. Only good thing is the value for money and deals. Would recomend if looking for cheap food and if you have all the time in the world.

“Let down by limited choice from the menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We used the restaurant while staying at the Premier Inn next door for a weekend. We visited on a busy Friday night in September and although we had not booked a table we were quickly found one with minimal delay. The waitress that looked after our table was very cheerful and really seemed to be interested in ensuring that we had an enjoyable meal. However on being told what was not available from the menu the choices available were severely reduced but this was explained upfront so we our expectations had been set the one thing that did stand out that there was no Nans available to go with the curry so Garlic Bread would be the replacement.
The evening meal was OK food wise but the staff really made the whole experience enjoyable.
We also had breakfast the following morning and this exceeded our expectations the quality, quantity was very good and as with the evening meal if was the staff that made the whole meal enjoyable.

This was the usual Tabletable experience but the waitress Charlotte was excellent. Beer was good too. Black Sheeo.
