“Average bed but gloomy breakfast!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

Stayed overnight after visiting the lovely Labworth.As a basic no thrills hotel, this represents reasonable value. The rooms are very basic and sparse but adequately equipped,in fairness too, the beds are quite comfortable.However, at breakfast the waitress was surly and the breakfast was of a very poor quality.The only reason I stayed there is because someone else was paying!

“A good friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

The Oyster Fleet is a very nice place to eat with top quality food and very friendly staff who are always on hand to serve you.
The prices are about middle of the range and a great place to go if it's someones birthday.

“Good food, poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012

Have eaten at this restaurant a few times, mainly the sunday carvery. Must say very good quality but waitresses could do with some spark, You could actually die of thirst if you left the drinks duties to them. With main course being self service you only have to wait for starters or dessert but even this seems to much trouble, shame really, lets it down a bit.
