“A bit plastic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

This is okay if you want an inexpensive meal. Prices are good but everything I have had here appears to be microwaved and a bit 'plastic' for want of a better description. It's okay but I won't select it as a place of choice.

“Does what it says on the tin!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Whichever Brewers Fayre you go to, all the menus are the same, all the food is the same, you get exactly the same experience no matter where in the country you are.
Probably why I have a Loyalty Card!

“Another good visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Really enjoyed the meal, doubly so as we had a voucher for free icecream sundays that we could use with the 2 for £10 offer. It was also my son's birthday and they were happy to bring out the cake that we brought along.

“The good and the not so good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We ate here three time whilst staying at the adjacent Premier Inn. Meals are typical pub fayre along with a daily themed 'as much as you can eat' offer. All the meals were good, however the service varied significantly from day to day. One day we had attentive ever present staff, clearing dishes, refilling drinks and taking desert orders. The next day we saw nobody after our 'mains' were delivered - had to go to the bar to get bill, we did not have any extra drinks and deserts as nobody bothered to ask. Is there a moral? Do not judge a restaurant on just one visit.

“Nice Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Food and service was very good, with the typical pub grub menu.
Family friendly restaurant, with ball pit and childrens play area, separate from main restaurant. No complaints, would eat here again. Staff excellent.
