Stopped by on Easter Sunday for the carvery. The restaurant was full and we hadn't booked as it was more of an impromptu visit. There was three choices of meat - i opted for the lamb which was divine! Plenty of veg and potatoes too. The Yorkshire Puddings were enormous! We thoroughly enjoyed the carvery and will be back we...

Visited Stoneybeck Inn last night. Haven't been for years. Friendly service and the food was delicious. I had Brie wedges followed by lamb shank. Both fantastic. My wife had the soufflé followed by Cumberland sausage. We couldn't fault anything. Couldn't quite squeeze in a pudding but will definitely be back.

My partner and I visited here last summer... I am new to Trip Advisor hence the delayed review! We stopped for lunch here as we had heard good reviews about the food! The restaurant was freezing! Open plan and stone flooring really isn't cosy! The staff were very friendly and attentive but unfortunately the food let us down. I opted... More

A fully catered conference at an AA rosette restaurant, brilliant I thought. Unfortunately I was left disappointed. We were served tea and coffee on arrival, the plates cups weren't cleared afterwards and the drinks weren't replenished at any point though the day. Marks and Spencer's do a better sandwich selection. I couldn't taste the tuna sandwich it was totally overpowered... More

Was there to hear a talk upstairs. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The event was being held upstairs, there was good lighting and the chairs were very comfy, but it was a bit hot despite it being very cold outside.

The website tells one that Sunday evening closing is 10.30pm. We arrived at 8.05 on Sunday 8th and the place was closed and in semi-darkness. How disappointing that the management sees fit to shut up shop two and a half hours early in disregard of the information on their website. Perhaps they adopt a cavalier approach to advertised hours as... More
