“Basic food in a sombre environment”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We visited the Grangemoor for the Sunday Carvery Lunch after positive reviews from friends.
However the food was very basic and the dining area had the feel and ambience of a retirement home. The sombre environment also seemed to attract those lacking in basic dining etiquette.

Although there was a good choice of meats, the quality was substandard and the vegetables were wilted and tasteless.
The vegetarian nutroast option was particularly poor; being very dry and offering little flavour. This dish was also delivered before we were invited up to the carvery (to select vegetables) and so was cold.

At nearly £16 per head for 3 courses I did not believe this to be good value for money. The chain pubs offer much better quality and atmosphere for the same money or less.

“Good honest food.”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Excellent value for money. The food was tasty, nicely presented and served. Did not have to wait too long even when they were busy. Decent wine list and specials board.

“Eating Out \Without Pretention”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

This restaurant serves good quality food, unpretentios, and accommadating. Waiting staff were mature and obliging, bar busy, due to large coach parties. Starters were straight forward, roast dinner excellent and desserts,beautifully presented. All served hot, with a smile, staff looked like they enjoyed working there, and it showed. Would I go back------ maybe, but nothing really stuck in my memory. I would like to find somewhere to eat that WAS memorable. I will keep reading Trip Advisor reviews!

“Good Sunday Carvery”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

I came here without a reservation on a busy sunday afternoon, the staff were friendly and offered us a table in the bar area as restaurant was full! This was not an issue, afterall we hadnt booked! The value was good and the food was lovely!
The decor is slightly old fashioned however i believe their main clientelle is older so probably suits them!
Would recommend to all
