Just came back from a nights stay at the splash landings hotel alton towers. Firstly booked the buffet there then canceled as it seemed well over priced. Found this place on here which served food till late so thought we would give it a go. Great bar staff and great food and they bought the birthday cake out for us as it was my partners birthday. The whole nite was a great experience. Even went back the next day before the long drive home. Would highly recommend 10/10

Tried this place while staying at the Alton towers Hotel, where after a day in the park we couldn't get a table until 9pm. Basically, it was the first place we got to when leaving the park. Well, what a pleasant surpise; the staff were very friendly, the food was served quick, it was tasty and was very well presented. Having been exposed to the very Expensive Alton Towers resort, the pricing of the menu seemed very good value for money. I would highly recommend this pub/restaurant to anyone staying at the resort who wants a change from the hotel's dining or like us struggled to get a table. A very pleasant exeperience, thank you.

Not a bad place to eat while we were staying in Alton. The food was presented in a very fancy way, and it tasted good too. The value was reasonable.

There was a function going on in the main room on the day we went but they still made room for us which was a nice touch.

Nice enough, but when 3 of our 4 plates of food were collected and were unfinished, I know there is something wrong. Nothing drastic, and in fact I polished off my Cod which was nice, but all in all just ok.
