“A Good Carvery Meal”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

This restaurant has been refurbished since the last time we were there so this time we actually stayed for a meal. The carvery was very good with ample sized portions served by friendly staff at a good price. The view from the restaurant overlooks the lake and if you are lucky you may get a table by the window!

The only problem is that if you are not able to climb the steep stairs to the restaurant, there is a lift to the restaurant but you have to phone a mobile number, wait a while until the lift is sent down for you.

“good cooking”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Nice place to eat if a little austere with wood panelling. Could do with updating. Food is well presented. Small portions but tenderly presented. Big fault is menu stays the same i.e an Autumn menu where nothing changes night after night. If staying there for more than 3 nights you would be demented as salmon is the fish of the day, sea bass is also on the menu. If you don't like these two then you will be stuck for variety. Nothing the matter with the food just please give me more choice by changing the menu every 3 days. If you stayed here a week you may well want to eat in McDonalds for a change!! Décor could also do with modernising. Please turn down air conditioning as candles definitely blowing in the wind and quite cool.

“...really good meal for just over £4 !”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Me and my wife both had carvery dinner in there.. good portion of meat and mountain of vegetables... meat was tender and gravy was nice as well.
....and they have it for £4.19 Monday to Saturday !!! Definately excellent value for money and probably cheapest dinner meal in town. You'll definatelly not leave Pub hungry ;) ...and bonus is a great view through window.

“Pleasently surprised”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Only intending on going in for a drink to have a lovely view of the lake but the Carvery looked that good decided to give it a try, and for a standard plate costing only £3.59 each. The interior looked a little run down but that didn't reflect on the food or the price at all. We went for the beef, it was very nice indeed, thoroughly enjoyed. The hot fudge cake with chocolate sauce and cream was also delicious. Mon-Sat do the special price but if you have the Sunday Carvery you pay double. Hope you enjoy your food, we certainly had no complaints.

“Great views of the Lake”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Carvery menu. Good Value and nice food. Sadly the exterior and interior loos very tired. But the staff were very nice and you do get a lovely view of the Lake.
