“typical carvery”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

this carvery is just out side the grounds of the Dalmahoy. We ate here twice. both nights we had the same veg (peas, cauliflower,carrots and cabbage). The meats change 2 times a week. The meat was a little dry but the carvery is open all day, so in fairness, it was to be expected. It is a case of you get what you pay for, and in this case it was £4.19 and it was a ok roast dinner.

“Cracking carvery!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

This is a great place to go if you want a great meal at very reasonable prices. The food is fantastic and you can have as much of the veg as you can eat! Mind you there's Not much room on the plate after the meat and Yorkshire pudding!!!! If you have room for something else....they do great puddings too. It's not great decor wise..a little tired but the food and very pleasant staff more than make up for that. You couldn't make the meal at home for the price you pay...give yourself a break have a huge meal for under a fiver!!!!

“Family lunch recommended”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Tried lunch here with grandchildren and very happy with experience. Decor a little tired in daylight but staff helpful and food amazing value. Carvery portions generous with good deals for kids. Not a special occasion place and not one to impress the ladies but great for a good quality, filling meal at budget prices. Especially good for families with kids.

“Best value meal you can find”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Get used to eating here, because if you start, you will come back.

The meats are excellent quality, the veggies are good and the roast potatoes are cooked perfectly. The gravies are good (hard to get wrong) and the Yorkshire pudding is nicely cooked, if a little overdone sometimes.

If you've never been to a carvery, you go to the bar, buy your meal tickets and drinks, take drinks to a table and then go to the counter to get your meal, where you choose from 3 meats and veggies. You can also choose from a menu of set meals, too. All this for about £5($8) including drinks.
