“Bland, not great quality ingredients”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Lets see - the starters were fine (can't really mess up a prawn cocktail). Mains: overcooked meat, potatoes appeared to be made from dry powder - I virtually never leave chips, nor my wife roast potatoes, but these were really poor. Sweets were OK (but then I had ice cream so it's not much of a pointer!). Breakfast in the morning - I decided to have a croisant to wake the taste buds - so dry and flaky that the front of my shirt looked like a really bad case of dandruff afterwards. The full English - well the bacon had the appearance of being cooked the night before, the mushrooms were so full of water and no flavour (tinned??)... Later in the morning a local taxi driver recommended eating at The Yacht (a Hungry Horse) if we were staying in the area again!

“Lovely staff, ok food good prices”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

The staff here were anxious to please, especially the 3 little ones that we took there. Food is hot with a good variety. The menu is a standard grill menu, with lots of variety. Everything was clean and well maintained, could not fault it for the price and location .

“Gorgeous”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

I came here with my mum on a Sunday for a meal. Never been there before but passed it and decided to have a nice change.

We both had a mixed grill ... absolutely gorgeous! We both had a soft drink ... which was unlimited refills.

The tennis final was on and there was lovely tub chairs underneath the television .. brilliant for relaxing.

I will definitely be coming back in the near future

“Nice food, good service”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Stayed in the adjacent Premier Inn & decided to use this for breakfast. Yes, it's expensive at £8-25 each for the large breakfast, but the bonus is that it's an all you can eat.

Greeted by a very pleasant member of staff, we were shown to a table by a window in a large conservatory style room where we were given the option of either a small or large breakfast. You can order as much or as little as you like off the menu & if you want more, just tell the staff what you want & they will bring it for you. Food was delicious & freshly cooked, served with a smile. Cereal & juice section very well stocked with a wide selection of choices for all tastes.

Overall a very good experience & will definitely be calling again.

“Terrible Service, long wait, poor food, will not be returning.”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Arrived for a fathers day and birthday meal out, 2 children and 6 adults, not enough room in the main restaurant so were shown through to the bar area where we could choose our own tables this didn't bother us and we found a few tables together that we moved so we could sit as one group. We ordered our food at 6.45pm, 8 meals, no starters. at 7.05pm the 2 childrens meals came out, the waitress then asked oh they have put the kids meals through as starters do you want the rest of them doing now ... well yes would be nice to all eat together. Thought nothing of it and expected food through in about 15-20 minutes. 6.30pm we asked if it was nearly ready, the lady on the bar was on her own and trying to serve drinks, take food orders, speak to the kitchen and clear tables by herself, she rang through and said shouldn't be too much longer. At 6.40pm we spoke to the restaurant manager who said they were just being plated up and be with us in 2-3 minutes. By this time, the children had long finished their food and were getting fidgety and agitated. 15 minutes later, my father (who's birthday it was along with fathers day) gets up and complains heavily to the manager, other staff unable to believe that we had been waiting over an hour for food. In this time we had seen other people arrive after us and finish their meals and move on to dessert before we had even seen our food. Food arrived, not pleasant, rice was crunchy like it had been under the warmer for too long, the sausages didn't look as though they had been cooked too well, chips looked and tasted like they had been sitting under the warmer, veg was cold, salad wilted and warm and coleslaw warm all the way through. The restaurant manager said she would be through to see us as soon as we had our food, she passed by a few times but didn't even look in our direction, eventually came over as we had obviously finished, one of the children was falling asleep on me at this point. She asked if everything had been ok, considering the wait we had and the complaints we made you would have thought so, she asked why didn't we say so and she would have had fresh meals made for us - we told her we didn't want to wait another hour for food. We were offered a refund for our meals, if we hadn't made a fuss in the middle of the restaurant then I doubt this would have been offered, we did accept this. Yes it was fathers day but the place wasn't busy, haven't been here for a few years and definitely wont be returning.
