I arrived at the club around 3.30pm in the afternoon to set up the room but when i got there i was greeted by two lovely ladies who had dressed the tables and the room looked stunning, without any prompting they took charge of the raffle prizes. I was immediately excited about how the evening would turn out. The meal was served promptly at 8pm, there was a little alteration to some of the guests at one of the tables but the waitress immediately resolved this. Compared to previous charters the meal was delicious and the waitresses could not do enough to accommodate the guests. At the end of the evening i asked people if they had enjoyed themselves and i received no complaints. Thank you to Michelle and her team for a brilliant evening i would definitely recommend this venue to other people.

We were really expecting a great night after reading the reviews.We were part of a group of seventy people celebrating in black tie style; some people had travelled quite a distance to be there.
Firstly the positives.The surroundings were nice and the three waitresses were lovely,helpful girls.The positives end there.Our food was appalling.No attempt had been made to warm the plates, so the food cooled down very quickly.The beef was o.k but portion control was all over the place.Our friend's gammon though nice ,was child portion sized.There was no horseradish sauce with the beef, or anything other than gravy for the gammon.Gravy with gammon? Really ?The vegetables were soggy and probably frozen,the roast potatoes had been left sitting in fat so were hard at the bottom.Yorkshire puds were leathery and probably frozen.Our friend's mushroom risotto was rock -hard and could be lifted in big chunks.To be fair she was offered something else but the rest of the table had finished (or given up ) by then so she declined.Starters were so-so, but puddings were awful.The apple pie was still frozen in the middle, the cheesecake was cheap and miserably small, the sherry trifle likewise.It looked like it had come from the value range of a budget supermarket.By this time it was so bad that we were enjoying it so when terrible coffee arrived we had a competition to guess what it smelled of.Plastic, tobacco,gerbil cage, desperation.....No one said coffee.We all enjoyed the mint.
This was a black tie do - people had dressed up to join us.We felt it a bit inappropriate that the maitre d' chose to wear jeans and a sleeveless top revealing extensive tattoos.The waitresses were smart and pleasant but dreadfully overworked.It took forever to serve 71 people 3 plates at a time.At £17.95 we didn't expect cordon bleu, but filling and tasty would have been nice, and the reviews led us to believe this would be provided.We went home and made a sandwich.

I am saddened to read your review above. In answer to your comments not once were any of your concerns mentioned brought to the attention of the management. We were aware of the risotto being over cooked and offered a replacement. The meal was booked as 4 course with starters main meal was roast beef or gammon vegetables were served in tureens along with gravy boats for each table several of your party requested mustard or apple sauce as accompaniment for the gammon and this was brought to them. No one asked for horseradish sauce had they done so this would also have been brought. The waitresses served three plates at a time two on one arm and one on the other which is normal practice for any restaurant ( they do not have octopus arms) Everything ran on time all starters were served by 8.15pm followed by mains all served by 9pm desserts and coffee followed and your entertainment commenced at 10pm. Your concerns were never brought to the attention of any staff giving us the opportunity to rectify any complaints. The organizer of your event had nothing but praise and informed us everyone had enjoyed the evening and the food.
Regards

We held our wedding reception at park view last week and we couldn't have picked a better place. The room was beautiful and Michelle and her team offered a service which was second to none. The food was great both in the afternoon with the hog roast and a fabulous buffet at night. All guests commented how good it was. Highly recommend the venue for any function.

From reading the reviews we had very high expectations and had seen an offer on the website for two dine for £20. When we asked the waitress about the £20 offer she said she had not been told about it and therefore we were not offered it. Starter of garlic mushrooms was very nice so were looking forward to our mains of cheeseburger and "homemade" pie. When the pie arrived and I cut into it I was very disappointed with the steak as it was very fatty and chewy. The pie was clearly not home made, if it was i would recommend sourcing them from elsewhere eg butchers. The burger was average but was not of a high quality and chips were over done. Overall we were very disappointed as we were expecting a lot and have visited many other restaurants in the area, all of a much higher standard that were marked lower on trip advisor ratings.

After reading in the local paper that the bar had a new manager we decided to visit for a family meal. I have to say we were very surprised. We last visited around 3 years ago. The furnishings and decor were superb. Upon our arrival we were welcomed by the new landlady I think her name was Cheryl and shown to our table. Our drinks order was served to us at our table by the landlady and our order for food was taken. Whilst waiting for our food to be served we started chatting and Cheryl told us she was originally from Barnsley we chit chatted for a while until our food was ready.
The food was wonderful not too much and definitely not too little. We followed this with a desert to die for Alabama chocolate fudge with ice cream.

The hospitality food and service is 5 star plus.

Was great to chat to Cheryl who made us feel very welcome.
We will definitely be paying many return visits
