Have complained previously about the undercooked roast beef, salty fatty bacon and dirty state of the servery, icecream machine area, and sauce and gravy table, not to mention the surly guy slicing the meats. Went last Thursday, September 12th, and it was the best meal we had eaten there. The guy (a different one) who was serving, was actually cleaning up around the meats and vegetables. All the veggies were hot and all the meats were well cooked. A great improvement, long may it last!

Went there with a friend for a light evening meal. The service was ok but the food was terrible! I had a chicken and ham pie. When I lifted the pastry top off there were 3 lumps of chicken but no ham visible at all! She had a salad that look limp and sad. My elderflower cordial did not resemble anything I had ever drunk before. All in all very disappointing as the setting on top of the cliffs is lovely.

Great food, good service, value for money. Went there twice - once for lunch and once for breakfast. Lunch at the carvery was good. The breakfast buffet was good with the exception of the fried eggs which were left to keep warm under a lamp. This may be OK with scrambled eggs but the fried eggs were solid & rubbery and should be cooked to order. Overall a good experience for an inexpensive meal.

Have been here a few times before today and generally it has been very good.

Unfortunately the staff working today seemed miserable and unprofessional. The server of the food never looked at us, never smiled and never said anything and seemed totally unsuited to a job dealing with the general public. Our desert was served by an equally miserable waitress who just said " Did you order this desert" She just put it on our table and walked off!

The food itself was fine.....shame about the staff!
