    Been visiting this venue for lunch with my friend for 10+ years and this was the worst experience we have ever had. We were refused a seat in the restaurant as we were told it was fully booked and were seated in the bar area. This was a blatant lie as few table were taken at the time we arrived and no additional people came into the venue for the two hours we were there. We both ordered the BLT which was dry and poorly presented. We then ordered pots of tea which were served with dirty cups which we complained and returned to them only to be told it was 'just a bit of staining'. When we come to pay the bill which was expensive at £40 we complained about the issues we had encountered - we were met with apathy and disdain by the same member of staff who told us the restaurant was fully booked. We will not be returning in a hurry!

    6 of us went for Sunday lunch, table was ready in a good spot. We got served drinks quite quickly and had a little wait for the food order to be delivered. The Sunday roast was delicious and a good choice on offer. Most importantly the food was hot . Overall a good place to enjoy Sunday lunch.

    This was a very disappointing experience. The food was very poor. One starter was inedible and one main course was incorrect and took some time to be corrected. All the food tasted like it had been kept warm for a considerable amount of time. Not pleasant. The servers were polite but there were absolutely no allowances made for the issues with the starter and main course. The food is very expensive and definitely not value for money. The environment is pleasant and the menu looks good. It’s a shame that the food is terrible. We would not return after this experience.

    We were very pleased with the suite, the only slight fault was the location of a socket to plug in the hairdryer close to a mirror with the ability to see your reflection, as my wife is only 4feet 8 inches tall . We really enjoyed our stay and the food was lovely, the restaurant and bar areas are really well set out, the only thing we did not like along with several other guests was the loud foul language by a group of men located by the bar area who the bar staff seemed to know and I would suggest that they should have been told about it.

    I love this restaurant, i really do. But last night i received 2 meals (sunday roasts), 1 gammon and 1 beef. Godawful non existant flavour from the veggies (except the meat), rock hard roasties, and when you got into them they were dry and M-eh! Ordered a yorkshire to go with the gammon..... it never turned up! There seems to be no style there some nights when the tractor boys come in and cannot talk, but shout at each other. Why is there no floor manager? someone to control and advise their staff, and keep the noisy customers ( i note its always the same table too) away from those that want a celebratory quiet and refined meal experience. On last nights terrible waste of money, i have to mark them as 'not recommended', although i know they can and do do better! However, i now have to consider returning. £68.00 for 2 courses and a drink each, doesnt come close to representing value and quality, based on last nights experience. So based on my ruined celebratory meal etc, i would not recommend them, sadly.

    Staff were lovely and very attentive. Main meal was only warm had to send it back. Roast potatoes were tasteless and could have been in for days! Food edible but nothing like reviews! Won’t go again. But as I say young girls that staffed the venue were very professional.

    The roast chicken main was very nice but needs to be served with vegetables or the waiter should advise that you need to order a side with it! The cost of the dish for 3 discs of chicken I thought was expensive & my friend and I were still hungry after it

    The service was slow.Food wasn't good.My meal was the roast and the beef was tough as old boots.The veg was hard.No waitress came to ask if everything was OK.We spent over £170 on the food plus there was alot of drinks going through.There was no choice for children only the Sunday dinner.

    The standard of food and service has always been high here, and last night’s meal was another example of that. We used Open Table to make the booking with minutes to spare and they were ready for us on our arrival. A menu with plenty of great choices, we went with a shared starter of smoked salmon on white bread, and a really tasty chorizo balls. Mains: Rump steak, pork medallion, and the smaller fish and chips were served in delicious style; I added a side of truffle chips with Parmesan to mine. Finished up with the brownie, and a shared jam roly-poly and custard- perfect!

    Excellent food, wide range of choice including GF and V options. Very nice setting and plenty of drink choice, although the service from the staff that were there was exemplary they were clearly short staffed causing some delays, the main reason I marked it down slightly.

    Restaurant area was very quiet (no atmosphere) - for a Friday night. Warned that there was 30min wait due to a large private party and no chicken breast… food was ‘Ok’ but Pork Loin a little over cooked. Not convinced that the Pie was homemade - Jerk chicken curry was good quality and refreshingly different to the norm. Sweets were a little ‘cool’. Drinks expensive - but aren’t they all - and attentive service. £120 for 4 seemed expensive (just 1 of 4 drinking), so just an ‘ok’ rating from us, sorry.

    Booked for Valentine’s night but unfortunately it fell far below expectations of what was once a lovely venue. It seemed like chaos when we arrived, the staff didn’t know how to work the till, we were sat in a corner crammed between other guests almost as if we were sat on other guests’ laps. We asked to move and they did find us another table. We were asked if we’d like to order food within 30 seconds and had to persistently ask for drinks menus etc. The starters were lovely, however, that’s as far as it goes. Considering the food prices, the loin of cod I ordered was plain and tasteless, in a bowl of fish stock/broth with no real flavour. My partner had the Jamaican chicken burger but that was as poor, being flavourless (despite being coated in spices it seems) Dry, no sauce and the best part were the fries! Rather disappointed, we decided not to peruse the dessert menu and I wanted to pay. It took a good while before I had to approach the bar to request the bill. The staff ignored me, despite 4 of them being stood behind the bar and one making eye contact with me. I complained about the burger which was so poor my Partner did not eat. Fortunately the “manager” on duty did take this off the bill but all in all a disappointing experience. The staff clearly need better hospitality training which is not necessarily their fault and need some authoritative senior management in place. A shadow of its former self which is disappointing but I will not hurry to visit here again, sadly.

    Popped in for lunch on 13th Feb and had a lovely time. We had booked ahead for the restaurant. When we arrived the guy asked us where we would like to sit which was great as quite often eating out you dont get the choice. We had arancini and chicken skewers to start and they were really tasty. A classic burger and steak and ale pie to follow and i was too full but hubby had jam roly poly for desert which he said was great. All our food arrived piping hot with just the right gap between each course. The guy who greeted us also served us and was really helpful in answeiring questions on the menu. A great lunch with very good service. We will be back

    I had the cod which was cooked well but the rest of the meal was awful, it came with a watery buttery sauce that tuned the potatoes into a watery mush. No veg on the plate apart from a few cherry tomatoes. The restautant is very brightly lit which is a shame.

    Slow service but felt sorry for young lad - looks like a newby and was trying his hardest to please everyone. Someone in kitchen forgot to get my desert and I went without, when I queried it a waiter apologised and said I’d get it free of charge and they put it in a takeaway box (this was after a big arrogant flustered woman came out asking us whats the problem? She didn’t seem as friendly as the young man and the man who said I’d get it free so perhaps this flustered woman needs anger management lessons.) hope she’s not there when we revisit-will spoil our evening, if she is a manager - shame on her.

    Our table was in the bar,not the restaurant. A group of 6 young people who were very loud and using foul language spoilt any atmosphere. They went totally unchallenged by staff. Service and food were good but there was only one choice of steak on the menu.

    I had the roast beef dinner which was very disappointing, the beef had obviously been cut a while and reheated as it was curling up,very dry and chewy. The carrot, yes just one was impossible to get my knife through. Food was tepid warm
