Although this is part of the Brewers Fayre chain we expected standard package food. The menu offers many of the meals usual in such places but with some interesting variations. It was post New Year and as such was quiet. I opted for smothered chicken, but being greedy, added a double chicken portion and a starter of potato dippers. There was just too much food. It was very tasty. My wife had feta and spinach lasagne, which was a huge portion and very tasty. As it was a weekday afternoon the prices were excellent, 2 main meals for £8.99. Add to this car parking right outside the door and an excellent range of beer and other drinks. All in all it was excellent.

Waited 50 mins for luke warm food. Ordered sweet potato and feta lasagne - one tiny piece of sweet potato - the veg in it was spinach which wasnt listed as an ingredient - not sure the cheese was feta either. Won't be back!

Visited the Cinder Path recently for a mid-afternoon lunch. Decided on a combo starter followed by Sausage and Mash for me, Lamb Shank for my wife and Chicken meatballs for our daughter. Staff were very friendly and made a fuss of our Daughter which was nice. Food was very nice and reasonably prices. Also happy to see that they offer a good selection of non-alcoholic drinks too.

Such a disappointing visit. Been a few times as the kids love the soft play and never thought much to begin with.
The staff are nice enough and the place is clean but the food was terrible. The pictures on the menu look great but when my burger came it looked like it had been thrown together. All disjointed and I’d question the portion size to what it says. The chips looked as if they had been in a tray for hours before reaching the table. Quite expensive for what you get.
I’d go again if only for the kids but I’d feed them before going!!
