Haven't been in a beefeater since visiting here about 5yrs ago. They're not my first eating choice but when needs must it was ok. Gammon & baked potato was fine, Pinot Grigio rose at £14.99 was v good vfm, flank steak was cold & replacement over cooked. Nice that they didn't charge for it tho. Still not a fan!

We chose this location for our annual Christmas gathering because we had a great family meal here in August. Unfortunately the experience this time was quite disappointing. The restaurant was quite busy and admittedly 22 of us might be a bit too much for some but even though we had booked they seemed surprised there were so many of us!... More

....didn't think much of the small, child like portions on Saturday lunch time. Just like Oliver, we had to ask for more which came in the form of chips. Too pricey for the tiny rations served up.

Love this restaurant but wish Beefeater would offer more Dairy, Gluten & Soy free dishes. Been here a few times and staff always helpful and friendly and the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. Although I'm able to find a suitable main, the starters are usually covered in cheese and there isn't a single pudding offered without an allergy label.

Friendly, good service, great food at a reasonable price. We feel this is the best beefeater we have eaten in, it is always consistent. We can just turn up and usually get a table.

We had a family meal for my father's birthday and there were seven of us dining. Our drinks were served fairly promptly and the main courses took a fair while to arrive but an acceptable amount of time. We noticed that portion sizes were quite a bit smaller and I had about five chips with my dinner which seemed strange... More
