Came in this afternoon with my daughter for lunch after being taken to the table by the not so friendly waitress we ordered our meal. we were not told to help ourselves to the salad bar so we just got up and helped ourselves. The meal came out was very dry and tasteless couldn’t be bothered to complain the meal choice is poor also .

Should of gone to the beefeater never again

Second visit in the last 6 weeks and although the service was excellent I cant say the same for the cod and chips!
The fish, what there was of it, was very dry and the very crispy batter was, in my opinion over cooked and greasy. I was quite disappointed.

Came in with my wife and granchildren to have breakfast only to find out that my breakfast didnt have beans on cause you ran out! Who could you run out off baked beans at 10.30am? One Staff member found this funny but luckily a gentleman called Lee sorted out our problem and said sorry on the other staff rudeness.

We called in on Tuesday evening and had a great meal (I would advise sticking with regular chips if you have the 83 combo, rather than having medium chips!), but there were very few staff and the restaurant was busy. Our waitress, Maddey, was lovely and great but, she was rushing around and having to apologise for delays due to the fact that she had too much to do. We were not in a hurry, so it did not really affect us but, if this happened regularly, we would go elsewhere as there are plenty of other restaurants in the area.

The salad buffet is usually very good and food is served reasonably quickly. Make sure that you record you car registration on entry.
