“drink a lot of beer cause the food is so dry , you will need it.....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

this was our second time at the place since the first time we thought to give it a second chance....for starters no greeting at all from any of the staff...the food as usual is dry,tasteless as they use frozen cheap precooked chicken breast with no seasoning at all and microwaved to death...the fries are so horrible and dry u cant eat them, seems that they been left under the hot light for hours...(maybe thats why ur food is served faster than fast food) they use same cut cheap salad for everything , including the burgers which suposed to be slices....not chopped with a axe...the servers never even bother to ask if ur ok or about ur food cause they are afraid of what u will say....drinks far to expensive(if you want a good, Cheap and selection the Blue Coat in town is the place to go...and if you willing to spend 10 pounds for dinner look for the nearest Mcdonalds in town...much better food and drink....we wont reccomend this place to anyone of our family or friends..suprised they still got customers.
P.S. The chef very old fashioned and needs ta take a trip to RCAT in town..

“Drop out not Inn”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

This was my first time visiting the The Droppingwell and it will be my last, I can honestly say it was the worst experience I have had at any restaurant. We arrived with high hopes. Food was served quickly rather to quickly and it showed. My gammon steak was dry with chips that tasted as if they had been stood and reheated or prepared in old oil. When i took this up with the staff i was assured that it was cooked fresh,so while my wife had her food i waited for mine which when it arrived was worse than the first. I asked for money back and left never again. At least get it right second time.

“Amazing Value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Me and my partner came to the droppingwell for tea. We got two starters and to big main meals for £15! Was very impressed at the quality and the size of the portions. Would have loved to have had a dessert, they looked great as they went past us to other tables, but we were just too full. Brilliant quick service and great staff! would definitely go back soon!!

“Superb Valentine”

I went with my husband for the Valentine meal,which was an Italian theme,it was wonderful and so tasty.
The table was set for the occasion,they went to a lot of effort, the staff were so frendly with a first class service
A three course meal for two £25, value for money
Thank you for making it a lovely evening
