Henry's Carvery & Grill
Cuisines: Grill
Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 March 2012

This restaurant occupies the very short lived Black Rocks restaurant in the High Street near the river. As I understand, it is now being run by the chef of the former Henrys table restaurant, which was in the same premises before the Black Rocks restaurant.opened.

It is a bit difficult to review it accurately, as when we visited it was obvious they had opened in a bit of a hurry as the interior was sparce and was still undergoing decoration. Naturally being a restaurant that had only been trading a matter of days (and probably opened earlier that it really should have) there was a lot of problems with communication and the operating system in general. New venture with new staff- a bit of a nightmare! However everyone did get what they ordered- albeit with over an hours wait between the starters and main course- and the food was pretty good and reasonably priced.

One observation for the future- you can either have a prepared main OR you can choose from the carvery menu. Unfortunately no-one thought to time it so the people having the carvery self-serve should really have been getting their meals (which naturally involves queuing) at least 5 to 10 minutes before the pre-prepared mains started arriving. This resulted in everyone having to get up to allow the 6 or so carvery people to get out and start queuing for their meals and then getting up again when they came back. Not very good at all and needs looking at..
