“Can I get you another drink?”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

The most popular question, asked several times that night. I tend to like a Beefeater, like a Premier Inn you know what you're getting and generally it is enough to make you happy. The non-Beefeater locations tend to come up short in my experience, as did this one.

Soup stater, cold, half-baked baguette hadn't been show an oven let alone been put in it.

Gourmet burger, the McDonald's across the way won't be worried about this offering. Steamed bun had been sunning itself under the hotplate lamps too long and was rock hard. The burgers had shrunk compared to the one in the picture and the chips were nasty skinny fries in too much grease.

But did we want another drink? NO!

“Lovely Sunday roast!!!!'”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Myself and my partner decided to go here as we drove past on the Saturday, popped in and was plebased with the no hassle service you usually get as some places you eat in require your table as soon as you finish your meal, our waitress was excellent, ( kayleigh), steak was perfect!! My partners meal was spot on as she is a vegetarian, . The good thing about this place is they do a loyalty card scheme, so we went back on the Sunday and had the roast, shame they didn't have a nut roast for the missus besides everything else was spot on, shall return with the kids as the kids menu sounds good

The food here is very mediocre but the staff member waiting on us was very pleasant and attentive. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a cheap meal.

“Seen Better Days”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

As this is a local for us we used to go here all the time but feel that lately it has gone a bit downhill. The last time we went the food was not so good and the prices had gone up. However, the staff are very friendly and efficient. We have switched our allegiance to somewhere else now which is a pity as I think that with a bit of proper management it could again become a very good restaurant.

“Sunday lunch regret”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We visited The Treacle Mine for Sunday lunch, to be seated in a dark corner. The roast dinner we had was edible but nothing to write home about, the cabbage was uncooked and roast potatoes were not roasted and all in all we will not be returning.
