I recently went for a lunchtime carvery on a weekday. Firstly, I felt there needed to be more bar staff as it seemed to take too long to be served and quite a queue developed as I was waiting. It was easy enough to find an empty table at which to sit at that time (1pm) then my friend and I joined the carvery queue. I noticed that there were still three choices of meat: beef and turkey as before but now joined by pork instead of gammon. I thought this was a change for the better. The range of vegetables on offer was reduced as compared to previous visits and the potato option was now roast and mashed. I could certainly tell that the mashed potato was 'real' as opposed to being re-constituted from a packet as there were several large chunks of unmashed matter in the serving bowl.
One practical inconvenience was that the gravy container is now situated right next to the vegetables unlike before when it was placed on a separate table. In its current position, it adds to the congestion of people at the counter.
The food tasted fine, nothing to get excited about but nothing to complain of either. My main point about the Newbridge is that it is long overdue for a major refurbishment or, at least for a start, a really deep clean. The furniture, carpets and walls all have a tired and worn out appearance. Yes, I will go there again but not any time soon.
