Stayed 3 nights at the premier inn and signed up for their meal deal at the Monkey Puzzle. The breakfast service was fantastic but dinner was a miss every night. The first night the staff gave our desserts to someone else ( they think). I left with my eight year old as she got too tired for dessert... After a... More

Arrived after a day at Chessington and was pleasantly surprised. Whilst the higher levels were warm due to an issue with the air con the staff tried very hard to manage the temperature. The food arrived hot and quickly. Nicely cooked and obviously freshly prepared. The staff were really helpful. Friendly and great with the kids. Overall an enjoyable experience.

on entering at 1.40pm on a Friday it was like a ghost ship - 3 diners only and no staff to be seen . we were eventually shown to a table after we found someone. drinks came up straightaway but our starters took 30mins to arrive. our main courses arrived soon after we finished the starters. This restaurant is desperately... More

Went with a party of eight, the staff are pleasant and polite which i cannot fault what let's this establishment down is the long wait times between ordering and actually receiving your food and drink. The restaurant was not busy nor did it look like they were short staffed but everything took a long time. The food to ages to... More

Waited 50 mins to get a bar table. Food was dry and cold. Breakfast the next morning was freezing cold. Terrible service. We were told to ask for our desert at the bar. When we asked th barman he said he would attend to it in 5 minutes. 40 minutes later still waiting. Shockingly bad. Will never eat here again.

This place was the hub in the middle of nowhere years ago, accommodating all the people that visited Chessington World of Adventures. Used to be really popular with all ages, food was good then...NOW, what a terrible disappointment. Food has to travel from a kitchen upstairs and by the time it arrives on the table, its cold. Though the staff... More

We had a lovely dinner here after a day at Chessington. It is certainly better than any of the food on offer at Chessington, so it is worth popping in here for a meal. I appreciated that they had a few good vegetarian options. The enchiladas were very good and we all enjoyed the food. The staff were very attentive.... More
