“Shame really”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

Took the family here on Sunday for a roast lunch. The food was absolutely spot on, both bar & food prices were also very good. However, we won't be returning, even for the delicious food due to the absolute dampener put on the atmosphere by a member of staff. Working in the tourism environment I have encountered stressed, busy, overworked staff in my time but can honestly say I've never experienced someone so rude. Quite a shame really, still I suppose you could have a really nice time, if you don't use the bar!

“the Dutchman is back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

Saw in local paper that the Dutchman was under new ownership so decided to give it a try. After couple of really bad meals from last owners we vowed never to go back so were a bit apprehensive. We went on Holiday Monday for lunch and just had old favourites scampi and chips and it was perfect. So decided to give the carvery a try as that would prove to me if standards were back up to how it was couple years ago. And we were not disappointed. It's just like it was before. The food was hot, fresh veg, good service from smart, clean and polite staff. The new owners have got a bit of a job getting all the old custom back, but they definitely have my custom again. Excellent. Keep up the good work.
