“Excellent food, staff very attentive.”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

The staff were all very attentive. We were given the choice to order at our table instead of going to the bar to order. We ordered two steaks and both were cooked to our liking. We didn't have to wait long for our food to be served even though they were quite busy. Had a lovely meal an will definately be returning again.

“decent enough food, but lack of service.”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Reasonably good value for money, food was fair enough. Not enough serving staff to be anything like moderately attentive.

Ordering food can be a complete nightmare, as there is no organisation or directions shown as to what tills you can order food at.

People NEED queues!

What happens is people take up random positions at or near the bar, and it's like ordering a drink in a nightclub at last orders! Mayhem, and completely unsatisfactory.

Table ordering please, or I won't be back.

“Between Wetherspoon & Beefeater.”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Now comes under the 'Flaming Grill' marque. Good food at a reasonable price, as is a bottle of their wine, with nice friendly/helpful staff. Think sort of between Wetherspooons and Beefeater and you're there. An order food at the bar job. Out of town with a nice big car park & so easy to get to.

“Good value pub food”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Arriving at 1800hrs for a quick meal, the Corner House was already quite busy, with diners and drinkers enjoying the fine weather on the outside tables. I was seated promptly, the jug of iced water I requested was delivered, and my order was taken. The food was delicious and well prepared, a 12oz burger with meatballs and side salad etc.

Overall, the Corner House provides good value, and the staff who served me were enthusiastic and polite.

“Good food, large portions, good prices”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

We popped in here to grab a decent meal whilst at a nearby festival. Food started at 11:30 and we were the only 2 in there. We ordered the surf and turf which came on a sizzling platter, plenty of chicken, steak and scampi, with a pile of chips of course! I ordered the Italian meatballs 12oz burger which came.with a pile of chips and a corn cob. We both fought to finish the meals, and we are not exactly small lads!!! They also do a wall of fame challenge for £9.99 now that would be a good meal to share! The young lad serving was very cheery and chatty, the manager likwise, but both knew when to leave you alone! I would definatly return if that way again AND will keep my eyes open for the chain now (flaming grill)
