The Park Inn has a lot going for it in terms of location, well-established gardens and some lovely old buildings. The dining room is large and well laid out but why do they try to fit so many people on each table? A real clash of elbows!
It took some 30 minutes to order our choice of starter and another 30 minutes before it was served. Another half hour passed before we were invited to the buffet style carvery for our main course. It was like school dinners again. The meat was generous, well cooked and delicious. But the veg had been sitting in heated trays for some time and were well past their best. The dessert course was also served from a buffet and to be fair was the best part of the meal.
The Sunday lunch here is not cheap (approx. £18) and overall was fairly standard fare. Although we were in no rush, the slow pace of the meal meant that we spent much more on drink than we expected. So at least we went home happy!
