We made a very short notice on-line booking for my father's 92nd birthday and were touched and delighted to find balloons on the table for him. Our food was excellent and very good value for money, the staff were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. This was the first time we had visited the Treacle Mine but it certainly won't...

I and my family and friends visit The Treacle Mine quite a lot, because you receive a warm welcome, the food is good and the staff are wonderful. In fact they are obviously happy there as you get to know them as you return over and over again. Atmosphere is also very nice too.

Went for an evening meal. Very friendly and efficient staff - especially Amy who looked after us. Good menu choice, even for a fussy family and the food was all good.

Friendly place and well designed and furnished. A pity the food is not something you would dream about coming back for more. Salmon was overcooked and the dishes were your normal, bland, not bad but not very good food, so typical amongst the national chains. Expensive for what it was. The breakfasts looked good value on the menu.

We had booked Boxing Day for the family at 2.30. We had to wait an hour for starters and then a further hour for main meal and the restaurant was not busy. The steaks we asked for were overcooked but we did not send them back due to the length of wait we had in fear of waiting a further... More
