I eat out most Sunday afternoons, but must say the beef was cooked to perfection, and was one of the best I've had in a while. All the food was well prepared and beautiful. I spoke to a staff member who explained they purchase their beef locally, and have been to the same supplier for years as its so good.... More

They offer a carvery Sunday lunch, but run out of yorksire puddings even though roast beef is on the menu and no roast potatoes apart from soggy roast potatoes swimming in oil. Asked for yorkshires and fresh roast potatoes to be told there are no more. A front of house member of staff kindly went to speak to the cook... More

Great front of house service, clean tidy environment with a menu designed to please everyone everywhere. General food can be good when Chef isn't trying to be a Heston blu.Bar food and its BLT is excellent. Breakfast is ok just watch out as the bacon can become steamed in the induction Chaffing dishes(ask Chef to crisp it up). Efficient I... More

I had a lovely steak which was cooked to perfection, however, large fries that came with the meal were burned and undercooked unfortunately. Soup started was fine.

Very nice restaurant with great food and good service. We slightly customised some of the order so we could make the healthy option even more healthy and the staff were very accommodating.

Efficient trained staff which is rare in 2015 in a chain hotel. These guys care and try very pleasing, just stop the Chef from trying to emulate the fashions and fads of the Caterer magazine please however your sentiment was good .Good breakfast...decent place.

I've been here a couple of times while staying at Waltham Abbey Marriott on business. Food is plentiful, and reasonably priced - breakfast and dinner services are very chilled out, and the staff can't do enough for you. This isn't a fine dining experience, and all the better for that when you want to relax, eat, enjoy a glass of... More

This is a typical Marriott Hotel Restaurant. Quite expensive for what you get, but very pleasant food. The overall atmosphere for eating is good. It's a big restaurant but usually quite empty. I would definitely eat in here again as I like the atmosphere. The staff are very good and friendly.
