Really disappointed with our meals. The children had burgers and chips, burgers arrived in brown toasted baps which were so hard they didn't want them, the chips were burnt and one of the party ordered carbonara which arrived swimming in olive oil and she had to send it back and get something else. I really would not be rushing back there for another meal.

I have dined at planters once and was very impressed with the food, both quality and quantity. It is expensive but it is well worth it. We ate near the bar on a saturday evening (around 6pm) which we weren't comfortable with as the meal went on due to the constant swearing coming from men drinking at the bar which the three young children with us picked up on. The biggest let down however was the staff. Not particularly friendly, rather abrubt and verging on being plain rude.

Recently visited this bar restaurant for the first time and would return. Service was efficient and friendly and food was tasty and reasonably priced although my elderly parents found the portions a little too large. A suggestion for a lot of restaurants would be to offer 'pensioners portions' which would save a lot of food being wasted, just an idea!

Wednesday night the place was empty apart from us. The menu had a very good selection however my meal was very average. The menu described the beef medallions with red wine jus, onions & burnt onion mash.....more like half a pint of bisto gravy poured over mash! At £18 i expect a lot better !!! The others in our party had better meals though. No atmosphere with average food! Much nicer places to spend my money.

Went in January on a Friday evening. The restaurant was relatively quiet post Christmas.
Pleasant staff who seated us quickly took our drinks order. The full menu is very good but we all opted for the early bird menu at £7.95 for 1 course or £10 for 2 courses.
Our drinks were brought by a most pleasant and humorous man (Robbie?), who made us feel most welcome.
As we watched the rugby enjoying our drinks the food arrived. Now I always associate special deals like this with possible small portions, not so here. Both starters and mains were of excellent proportion as well as being fresh and delicious.
Overall a great meal and superb value.
