Breakfast was terrible!! all cooked breakfasts returned as they were cold (eggs, beans and hash browns frozen in the middle), I had to send mine back a second time as still cold. I did not leave a tip (very unusual for me) as I had no apology or empathy from our waiter. If didn't even ask if everything was alright... More

Own parking and table immediately available on a weekday lunchtime so was very relaxed start to meal. We had two outrageous grandchildren with us who were very picky, took for ever to eat and made too much mess, the waitress was very understanding and gave us the time we needed to address the kids. The salad bar was well stocked... More

Taken to a table and asked if we wanted drinks. Ordered drinks that took forever to appear (having asked two other staff to chase them). Ordered two steaks - one medium and one medium well. Got a medium and a rare! Apparently, the chef sent the medium well steak to another table. Had to wait 20 minutes for the correct... More

We visited the Bell and Barge on the 4th February for a family meal (7 adults, of which 4 are vegetarian). We had booked in advance so when we arrived we were seated quite quickly. The waitress then passed us a typed note apologising for certain items not being on the menu and a list of the items, bad news... More

I've been to this harvester for more than two years, I came on a Saturday night, so it was very busy. My mum booked us a table so we didn't have to wait. When we arrived, the table was almost ready.
