“Easy afternoon meal!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

Visited the Island Pool late on an afternoon. The restaurant was quiet and easy to get served. The food was average, standard carvery with what you would expect. Staff were friendly and pleasant. My only comment would be that the beer tasted off and the chairs need more cushions! I would however go again and have another carvary.

“back to mcdonalds for breakfast”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

My daughter offered to take us out and pay, so it seemed like a really good idea to go for unlimited breakfast, but to be honest we said next time we are going back to mcdonalds. First of all stood around waiting for fried eggs, baked beans and toast, to be told 'you can come back and get more'. So proceeded to put rubbery scrambled egg, burnt rock hard bacon, thin brittle black pudding, meat free sausage, tomato juice on my plate; then the over done fried eggs arrived. Endeavored to eat but food was now to cold to enjoy, managed 1/2 of it, then the waiter brought us the baked beans in an overflowing dish! Needless to say they were sent back to the kitchen. Its a real shame as the sunday carvery was lovely and excellent value for money. On another positive note the mushrooms were to die for, but as with everything else they ran out and then a 15 minute wait for more to come out of the kitchen.
