Had the Sunday roast carvery today, so choice or combination of four meats: pork, beef, gammon, or turkey. The meat was acceptable but nothing to get excited about.

There is an adequate range of vegetables from carrots and beans to roasted root vegetables. Whatever you choose you can be certain that it is all overcooked and bland. The carrots could have been mashed with a spoon. All the boiled vegetables seem to be tasteless and either haven't been seasoned or cooked in salted water. The mash is as bland as can be, just boiled potatoes mashed up; no seasoning or butter. The roasted root vegetables aren't crispy and the parsnips limp.

The gravy had no flavour and dared to claim it was onion gravy despite not having, or tasting of, onions. Like the vegetables it was underwhelming and bland.

We have been to Poppy fields several times now - and each visit gets better and better.
The service is brilliant - the staff really polite and friendly and the food is really lovely.
A special thank you to Adam - when ever he is on duty - he always remembers us and goes the extra mile. My Sister always ask's for a doggy bag - when ever Adam is there she does not have to ask - he remembers us and automatically gets her a box.
All the staff are wonderful - but please clone Adam he really is brilliant and is always so very genuine. We have seen him when there are disabled groups dinning - he is so lovely and always make's sure everyone is o.k.
We look forward to seeing you all on our next visit.
A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO ADAM AND ALL THE STAFF THAT MAKES EACH VISIT PERFECT.
