“Excellent food and Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

I was staying in the nearby Holiday Inn and decided I wanted a Sunday Lunch, the holiday in dont do roasts, so I decided to venture out to this bar. A little understated and a little lost next to the tenpin bowling and, what looked like, a desolate premier inn. This bar was simply delectable to eat at.

The food

I had the roast beef and the food was hot, tasty and didnt turn up like it was microwaves 10 seconds earlier. The only mark down I would give it is that the yorkshire pudding looked like someone had added it after the food was platted but never the less it was delicious. I decided to skip the dessert because I was so full after my main course but I saw some of the others that came out of the kitchen area and they looked delicious too.

The staff

I was met at the front door by a gentleman who asked if it was a table for 3, which was humorous because I was there on my own. Great natured staff who do a good job without having to 'try' at it. There was a pleasant lady who took my food order, who had what sounded like an eastern european accent. Anyone who has ever been to most of these countries know that as rule they are pleasant mannered and pleasant to look at!! (Ok so I got a minor crush on the waitress!)

The setting

The Pub has an old west country feel to it despite the fact its sat next to a dual carriage way, a premier inn and a bowling alley. Anyone looking for an adult only setting should probably give this a miss and its very family friendly, as you would expect from and old west country feeling bar. The bar is finished in wood all around and tastefully decorated.

The bottom line: Cost

The items on the menu were reasonably priced for a bar meal, and the quality of the food was excellent. for a main meal and a soft drink you are talking £10 - £12 per person, depending on what you order

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Situated adjacent to the Premier Inn this restaurant attracts many customers other than from the hotel. There's a great choice of food and wine on the menu and the quality was excellent. The staff and service were very good and attentive. It was quite busy in the evening for mid week but we didn't feel rushed or crowded. Would suggest booking a table for a weekend night. A most enjoyable restaurant.

“Tables”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

Stayed at the travel inn for weekend end, went for breakfast which was really good, cooked to order.Ffriendly staff who worked none stop place, trying to accommodate everyone, was a bit manic due to not enough tables for the number of people staying in the travel inn, would avoid eating breakfast at 9.30 !

“Quality Average, Poor Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

We stayed at the adjoining Premier Inn and had continental breakfasts for three mornings and dinner the first night.

There appeared to be some sort of staffing issue as customers were kept waiting for a considerable period before they were sat at their table and for their food.

Breakfasts on the first 2 mornings was chaotic as their appeared to not be adequate staff. Third morning was quieter and no issue with service. Perhaps demand was higher than expected so the could not cope.

Dinner we waited for quite a while for food which we could have produced in our oven from frozen. I advise you to travel into Gloucester (only 10 minutes away) for better tasting food at similar or lower prices. We had dinner on the first night as we were being lazy but after the initial experience vowed never to return!
