“It's had it's day!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

This Beefeater has been there ever since I can remember. It has clearly had its day. Although had a refurbishment in the not too distant past, it hasn't improved. Prices have gone up, quality of food hasn't. Everytime I visit to see if its improved have been left waiting to be seated. Waitresses are in short supply.
It's a good place to meet for a drink in the bar but for dinner out I'd go elsewhere. I think it would do much better if replaced with a Harvester.

“November Stay @Premier Inn”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

My company booked me into the Premier Inn and paid for the meal deal at this establishment.
Firstly the breakfasts, all 3 were of a high quality and the staff were excellent. All you can eat is tempting but not practical because its very filling if you order correctly. Only negative was they advertise bread as being fresh but its not
Next we have the evening meals. The food was of a high quality on the 3 different meals I had and portion sizes were good. Service however was different, only the Sunday and Tuesday I had two different women wait on me Karen and Shirley who were both brilliant, very friendly and efficient and a credit to the company. Monday was a different scenario altogether, I had a bloke waiting my table. He stuck me round the corner then totally forgot I existed. I had to go hunting for him 15 minutes later to ask exactly how long it took to get served. He finally took my order and was not of the standard of the females working there. Luckily after he took my order I never saw him again and one of the female members of staff served me. She was like the others who worked there efficient, pleasant and a credit to her company

“Stomach ache”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

About an hour after the meal I had 9 hours of diarrhoea. Service was slow even although they were not busy. The free wine tasted like vinegar.

“What happened to the roast?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Dropped in on a Sunday to try their roast and was disappointed to find they don't do it anymore?
The remainder of the menu looked a bit dull and pricey...especially the steaks. Why would you pay over £15 for a streak at a beefeater?! Had a burger in the end....to be fair it was pretty decent. Good size, well presented and more than adequate. Reasonably priced already.
With no atmosphere and now no roast I don't think I'd go back.

“Colour Blind?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

I think who ever chose the exterior paint colour must have been colour blind! However, the interior is tastefully decorated. It's a shame that the railway theme that once made the interior very distinctive is long gone. The food is what you'd expect. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The only reason this doesn't get an excellent is that there is generally no-one on front of house & you have to stand around until a passing waitress notices you!
