“The Most Wonderful Sunday Roast”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We were wondering where to go for a 'home cooked ' Sunday roast' (had been to other restaurants for Sunday lunch and wanted a change). I read all the reviews for the Chaplins Carvery on Tripadvisor. We've just been there!
What a find! The meal was truly magnificent. A choice of 4 meats (I'm sure they do vegi options if you so desire) which were cooked to perfection, light, well risen yorkshire puds and a vast array of 'help yourself' delicious veg. Personal sauces and gravy are placed at each table (a nice touch). Service was impeccable, all staff being professional, friendly and attentiven.
We can recommend this carvery 100% and will definitely be returning!

“Try the breakfast-It's amazing!!!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Had a great breakfast here the other morning, lovely hot tea and great freshly brewed coffee. I had very tasty scrambled eggs on toast with bacon which was cooked perfectly.This is a lovely multiple level cafe/restaurant and apparently really good for Sunday lunch with a great hot carvery.Unfortunately the carvery room is closed until the end of the month for refurbishment so as soon as I try it I will post a review and if it's a good as the breakfast I then I just can't wait.

“Brunch sorted!”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

We stopped here looking for breakfast on a Sunday morning and got generous scrambled eggs, toast & tea - perfect. Sat outside and enjoyed the breeze. All for less than half the price of a hotel brekky.

“Nice friendly local”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Rather than face the corporate breakfast in Premier Inn we decided to visit an independent cafe. Chaplins delivered an excellent breakfast at good value for money- they even had homemade bubble and squeak. The staff were very friendly and coped with a rather awkward American family with tact. One criticism- the decor is looking rather tired and would benefit from some renewal.
