Visited on numerous occasions now for the carvery. Good selection of vegetables and meats, as yet no bad experiences. Consistent good food being served making this a regular venue for me to have a carvery meal. Popular with families as good play area available.

Never been or heard of this place. The indoor play area was surprisingly larger than it looks from the outside. Kids had a blast and the sun came out so they were able to enjoy the indoor and outdoor play area. The staff was quick with bringing out drinks and food to accommodate the party.

We visited here yesterday (sat teatime) and last Sunday. We have been visiting here for about ten years. A decent carvery at good prices. Nice indoor and outdoor play areas for the children afterwards....tip- outdoor area has no charge for play whereas the indoor area does. When the weather is nice, our children play outside and we save the best... More

My elderly mother, requested Pork from the carvery. There was a small fatty, dried up piece left and a new piece ready to be carved. The chef would not cut her a piece off the new joint and told her to choose something else, he also ignored my request. Totally ruined the visit. A never again experience.

Passing by on our way somewhere else to be honest, saw the carvery and decided to give it a try, always wary because we live behind the clock tower and have never had a good experience, having said that this was very nice! Hot, plentiful and tasty, the staff were pleasant and this location is nicely furnished and generally felt... More

Been here a few times, normally good service, but today 16th March at 18:50 the service rated at most 2 out of 10, the guy who took our order at the bar was ok, the guy serving the carvery can best be described as rude, we paid for desserts on ordering, but because we didn't give the waitress our order...

Just had the bar menu but food very nice. The sandwich I wanted wasn't on the menu but it was soon made to order with no fuss. Not very busy, so loads of space and big car park. Very friendly and helpful staff. Reasonably priced

Thank Chrisgale
