The food here is typical of a Brewers Fayre restaurant - it's reasonable quality at a very reasonable price. I ordered the rib eye steak and it was well cooked, but they had run our of sweet potato fries. If you want a reasonable family meal at a reasonable price this would be a good choice. It isn't fine dining.

Had a great breakfast here. Kids ate for free. Lots of food available to eat - all looked fresh and plates replenished as they emptied. Loads of choice - Daughter enjoyed her bowl of porridge before tucking into the full english.

Very slow service. Mains came out quickly, but waited over 30 mins for the plates to be cleared and found 3 staff having a chat at the bar doing nothing. For the pudding, the cream had bits floating in it, and the cream jug was also dirty. The mains were ok, but nothing more than ok. When we the got... More

Service was slow, even though the restaurant was not busy. My main meal arrived and the chips had been warmed up, however they were burnt, soggy and cold. I complained to waitress who said sorry would replace, so she left me with my original plate and chicken burger. After about 10 minutes they brought me a bowl of "hot" chips.... More

Husband then waited at the bar to get two drinks, took ages. We sat at our table and waited for order to be... More

Starter and desert were good, main was average, didn't have a couple of items on the menu. Considering it was quiet food took ages to arrive, don't feel like it was value for money.
