“Walk”
Review of Carr Mill Dam

Carr Mill Dam

Reviewed 2 weeks ago

There is a walk around the dam. There is a lot of litter thrown about and it can be extremely muddy but at least it stretches the legs so to speak. Once seen and walked, highly unlikely you would do it again.

Always muddy somewhere, but a lovely walk. The dog loves it and so do the children. Lots of different routes.

Hired the Boat house for a 40th Wedding anniversary function, can not praise ken, his wife and staff enough, ken is so obliging and helpful, he is all about doing what what you want, change the whole room round, have as many or few large or small tables, he has a stock room of table decorations which he let us use for free, the location was perfect even on the 24th of March 2018 right on the Dam, it would be even more stunning when the nights are light in the summer. ken has 3 caterers that he uses, We used Simon for our 1970,s theme buffet he had no problem doing whatever food we asked for, and it was amazing all our guest loved it, heard the words the best buffet we have had quite a number of times, would recommend Simon for any Buffet especially if you want to stick to a theme. We had some children at our party and ken arrange a comfy area with couches chairs and toys at the back of the boat house which was perfect. if you are looking for a venue highly recommend the Boat house .

This place is great if you are looking for a great walk , you can actually walk all round the dam , enjoy the countryside . Plenty of places to sit have a picnic aswell as the waterside restaurant. The dam has a boat & often hosts speed boat racing a little further on you will come to my favourite place as a kid , happy valley where the water from the dam cascades down a series of steps to ? If you take the kids take towels it's clean enough for a paddle.

I always try to find something positive in a review, nothing here. Food....awful. Staff, too busy to redeem the situation, as we were told the management were not available. I suspect they were dealing with other complaints as we waited for over an hour for them visit us! We actually were so disappointed and annoyed that we wrote to their head office. We are still waiting for a response. We wrote during August 2017.
Starters: dry and burned but still served, main courses: only one served then waited forty minutes for the second. There were only two of us dining!
Avoid at all costs!
