We both ordered gammon egg and chips. The chips were hard as in undercooked, eggs didn't taste good and gammon dry and tasteless. We both sent quite a lot back uneaten which is very unusual for my partner. When our plates were collected the guy just asked us if we wanted to order sweets or coffee and never asked if... More

Husband and I dropped in for a quick lunch. There seemed to be very few staff on and it took quite a wait at the bar to order. Our drinks and starters came within 10 minutes......then that was it! Half an hour later my husband cleared the table, took the plates to the bar and asked if we could have... More

Found the toilets which clearly hadn't been cleaned for some time to be dirty, smelly and thoroughly unpleasant.

The food at this Brewers Fayre is quite good for the money. I at there twice in one weekend because the food suited our grandchildren and there was an outside play area if the weather is find but also an inside play area which closes at approx 8 pm. There is a small charge for the internal play area but... More

We used to visit here regularly when we briefly lived in England. The staff were always pleasant, the interiors nice (with inside and outside play areas) and the food was satisfactory for the price. Beer choice was also not too bad. However when we visited on Weds 2 Nov we were in for a surprise. It was the hot dog/burger... More

Food was terrible rump steak that was a lump of fat also tasted funny £12 left on the plate. Hubby had gammon again fatty and gristly he actually choked on it. The burger meals bread was like rubber. Coleslaw tasted off and not fresh at all. A huge disappointment. £70 down the drain. Never Again!!

Our visit was for a pre-arranged children's party (18 x 5-6 year olds). The hosts, Megan and Nat, were very friendly and most importantly very organised and efficient in welcoming the children, serving the food and generally ensuring the party went smoothly. The children enjoyed the play centre, there was a large selection of food for the children to choose... More

The food here is nice, but I have to say the playarea for the toddlers is rubbish, no ball pool, just a slide and a few soft cubes which is terrible considering if they can walk you have to pay £3! Also wasn't aloud to take my toddler on the larger play area because it was 'too busy' yet there... More
