Visited for lunch with my wife having not been there for some months, the food was very poor and it always used to be lovely. A much smaller menu than previously, no Specials on Specials Board. I had a simple meal, ham, egg and chips, the poached eggs were hard, the ham was a funny colour as if it had... More

The female staff were apologetic but when a new steak arrived it was acoompanied by peppercorn sauce rather than the diane which was ordered and came with... More

Ended up here after two nearby carverys had run out of meat, after a 45 min wait for food and having to ask where our food was it miraculously appeared within seconds, food was nothing to write home about and certainly not worth the money, I'm guessing Brains think it's ok to charge that for conveyor belt food because of...

Food was below average. Service was good. Atmosphere was nice. It was late afternoon, so perhaps they were between chefs but the food was not well cooked. My husband and I were happy with our respective meals except for the veg which was raw not al dente. My friend had spare ribs and they were the worst she'd ever had.... More

We all had jacket potatoes with various fillings ok but nothing to write home about actual potato very small could have been bigger for... More

So with a broken leg I went to the bar to order Twenty minutes later she came across and asked us did... More

I had the BBQ baby pork ribs and half roast chicken dinner. It was lovely and considering it's £7.99 and for an extra £2 you can get a starter or dessert, I find it hard to understand how anyone can complain. Also, the service was good and the staff are really friendly. Reserving a table for my family for next... More
