We have been regular visitors here for many years and the standard has varied very littler over the last ten of these - an achievement in itself. The beer is always excellent and the carvery food generous, hot and tasty. Price-wise, the carvery is, by far, the best value.

Came here again with my friend and as per usual was delicious. We both opted for the carvery as we love it and all plates were left empty. We then saw the dessert menu and both chose the Red Velvet Cheesecake and it was to die for! Top marks again from me!!!

When to Trawlerman for a friends evening Birthday Meal but I didn't realise it was carvery only. Very bland. Nobody came for at least an hour to pick up plates and empty glasses.

Probably the best carvery outlet in Grimsby and Cleethorpes. Vegetables are always fresh not frozen. Meat carved to perfection , not dry but juicy. Great for a very good meal and cheap as well, they do not raise the price at certain times of the day. Two carvery meals and 2 drinks for approx £13. Great value and great staff.... More

There were twelve of us who gave very little notice in advance that we were coming. The staff were extremely accommodating and managed to fit us all in together in spite of it being very busy in there. The food was excellent, good value for money and we were served very quickly.

Been a number of time and never had a bed meal. It is nearly always very busy, a good sign, but can lead to queuing both at the bar for drinks and also at the Carvery to get your meal, but the wait is often worth it. If you dont have children it is best to book a table and... More
