Attended here for a meeting which included the carvery. Found all the food well presented and tasty. Very similar to most carvery venues but that's pretty much what you want when you want a roast.

Having driven past this place on numerous occasions, the sight of the motel-style accommodation next door has always put us off, but having been there last night I can vouch for the fact that this is most definitely NOT a Travelodge/Beefeater combination - the food...More
