Lovely clean clean and warm rooms. On arrival I had a fish finger sandwich which came with chips, very good. Staff were all friendly. Breakfast we paid extra £5 for cooked breakfast buffet, lovely hot. Would definitely be going again

Have given one star simply because I can't give none! We went for a carvery for Sunday lunch and although we were greeted promptly as soon as she (who I can only assume was the manager) found out we were a table of 9 including a high chair and we hadn't booked made us feel nothing short of an inconvenience....

Lovely English breakfast ...would have said lovely full English breakfast but there was no baked beans available . Shame they started hoovering during breakfast time but minor complaint really.

Thank Sharon H
General Manager A, Manager at The Town House, responded to this review

Hi Sharon, thank you for taking the time to send your review to us. As regards the beans for breakfast it is due to the fact that our suppliers have changed the quantity from 12 to 1 and the chef was unaware. Our cleaner does start at 6 and tries to get the hovering done asap so sorry about that.... More

We stopped for the eat as much as you can breakfast. The quality was very good at a very fair price. The serving dishes were well filled all the time, we tend to eat out rather a lot, and in my opinion, this breakfast is the best for quality and value. Friendly staff, very nice coffee. We will return soon... More

The Town House is good value for money. Called in when we couldn't be bothered to do our own. Plenty of choice of veg, three meats, Yorkies and sausages.. Small or large carvery available. The only slight shame the food could have been a tad warmer, food got cold fast so you eat in double quick time.

We often eat at this carvery chain as it does what it "says on the tin". We were disappointed that turkey was not ready for 5pm and that the food was lukewarm. But at these prices one cannot expect a 5 star dining experience.

Manager R, Manager at The Town House, responded to this review

Dear Labradoodle51 thank you for taking the time to pass on your comments. As regards the turkey not being available until 5 this could be down to the fact that we stagger the cooking times so as to try and have freshly cooked joints ready at different times. We may have got it wrong on timing on this ocassion. We... More

My family, aged 7 to 85 years of age, were all delighted with the lunch they had this week. A smaller appetite meal suited my mum, whereas my husband tucked into the King carvery.

Have visited here twice now and understand that a certain approach to food is followed given the Town House is part of a chain of carveries. Last visit was Christmas Day and a pleasant friendly experience was had. Being vegetarian just had the vegetables etc. so can't comment on the meat side. The veges were hot, fresh and good as...
