Never had a bad experience here. Nothing spectacular but food always well cooked and not rushed . Menu normal for chain.

OK, its a Beefeater so that fixes it in perspective. Service was a bit slow but not badly in this case, food was decent enough if nothing spectacular - one of my party really enjoyed something unusual off the menu. The evening I was there they seemed to be having quite some problems with the card payment system. A decent... More

Got the meal deal with the Premier Inn next door. Choice of food good but my sirloin was tough and gristley. Rest of the meal good quality. Service very good. Breakfast next morning was excellent. As much as you like. Set us up for the journey.

I stayed at the premier inn next door for a week a few weeks ago and can highly recommend the Restraunt for good quality food and some really great staff. The manager and his staff all seem to be a happy bunch both breakfast and evening meals, they all took time to chat and be very pleasant which made dining... More

Visited here for breakfast and dinner 3 consecutive days whilst staying at the Premier Inn next door. Wow what breakfasts and so much to choose from. Full breakfast won't leave you room for anything. Eat each night off the set menus and before 6.30 (I think) the reduced price daytime menu. Huge portions very reasonably priced. Never met a miserable... More

My husband and I took our kids for an early dinner. Service was quick and the kids main meals, which looked great, came with our starters which were lovely too. My husband enjoyed his main course but my gammon steak was quite small with burnt parts. The chips were ok and the peas were fine. Quite a small portion I... More

As per the title Good food, good atmosphere, good staff but nothing fancy. I've eaten here with my wife and with my wife and kids and we have never been disappointed. The price is reasonable and you absolutely get what you pay for. It's nothing fancy but it's very good and the staff couldn't be more helpful.
