“Great Sunday Carvery”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

Went to the Sophie Dawes with a Living Social voucher. Had a few issues getting a booking but got sorted eventually.
When we arrived we found a very rustic setting which was a little bit of a surprise. We were seated fairly quickly and drinks also arrived quickly.
The carvery was well stocked with veg and we had a choice of beef, pork and turkey. Everything was hot and we had a very generous portion.
The food was very good although some patrons may find some of the veg a little under cooked, but we found it ok.
Overal we were very happy with our carvery and would come back and reccomend.
The only small minus was the lack of some atmosphere, perhaps some background music would be good, otherwise 9 out of 10

“How did they delete the negative reviews?”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

I, and many others, wrote scathing reviews of this sub standard restaurant, but the negative reviews seem to have gone, leaving 4 excellent reviews only,
This place is anything but excellent - but the reviews which reflect this seem to have vanished.
This place is NOT recommended.

“Perfect Sunday Roast”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Welcoming and friendly staff, the food was lovely very filling and could not be faulted. Perfectly cooked meat with all the trimmings and the puddings are a must. Child friendly a good choice for a Sunday family dinner, will definitely be visiting again.

“Fabulous Sunday Carvery!”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

We booked a table for lunch today - and were glad we had done as this place is busy! We both had the carvery lunch which at £9.75 each is very good value. The meat was well cooked as were all the vegetables. Good service which is unobtrusive. Definitely a place we will go back to!
