“Beautiful interior, shame the food and service don't live up to this.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

The service was poor and inattentive from the outset and the food was bland and boring.

The Sunday roast was fairly small and the roast potatoes were horrible. However, the dessert was pleasant.

Such a shame, as the location is good and the interior of the restaurant is beautiful.

Not good value for money.

“Birthday lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

20 of us had the £10 3 course lunch . Sent orders in advance ( thank fully kept copy) everyone was happy from 5 yrs to 70 . Only downside but minor was going downstairs to bar and ordering coffee/drinks ( waitress only brought food ) and paying per family/ couple which took a little while BUT the food was a pleasant suprise and very good value indeed .
We are looking to return soon .

“Girls night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

We tried this place you know you are not going to get amazing food which we didn't but the atmosphere was lovely as we're the staff. So if you can't be bothered to cook but don't mind eating frozen food this is the place.

“Nice Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

The Wealden Hall has changed ownership recently, still getting bad reviews before Christmas, but as it is walking distance from home we thought we would see what it was like.
It was a very pleasant surprise, it was warm, clean and the Waiter very friendly. The pace the food was delivered was spot on, not rushed and not waiting ages. All the food arrived at the same time and was hot and very tasty. Just as good as the other chain of restaurants in every town owned by a Brewery Company
The range of dishes on the menu was quite large, so something for everyone.

We will definitely recommend this restaurant on the experience we had Saturday night
