I took my daughter there last week (over from France) and she could not believe what a lovely carvery (and bottomless ice cream) we had.
Only complaint is that a lot of the vegetables are frozen, but the 3 types of meat on offer are normally succulent and tasty.
Lovely spacious eating area and the staff are helpful and pleasant.
I keep going back.

We have been several times since being recommended by my brother 2 years ago. We went this week at lunchtime. A carvery for £4.19 with all the vegetables you can eat is amazing value. Every time we go the food is always nicely cooked and hot! The staff are always pleasant and we enjoy going there. Sometimes we park there all day(its a park and ride) and get the bus into Brighton, and then eat on our return. In the centre of Brighton you will pay more than this for a sandwich!

Went to this carvery with several friends back in June in the evening and really enjoyed our meal. There was a good selection which is what you would expect, all cooked nicely and would certainly go there again. Staff were a bit slow in taking the order especially as it was not very busy as it was only 6.00pm (we were going into Brighton to a show later).

Funny that this restaurant is always full considering people think it's so bad. It's a carvery! What do you expect? Honestly, some people want caviar at burger prices, with silver service thrown in. Get real people. It's good, honest food in a CLEAN environment. If you will throw your food around and spill your drinks then that's your problem. My cleaned table's never dirty. I love this place.
