Went to wishing well table?31 chairs were dirty and the carpet was disgusting hasn't been cleaned in while.
Food you get what you pay for wasn't much cop ice cream was just ice like it melted and re frozen several times went to pay bill £70.00for four adults and two grand children had to wait five mins to pay whilst bar man was chatting a blonde up
Utter dissappointment to say the least

Me and the Fiancee had our first date here. How things have changed in 5 years. The restaurant had a full refurbish a few years ago and it looks good. This is also a great place to bring your kids as they have a soft play area in a separate room. It also has an adults only section - which we will always sit in when we go as a couple.

However. I have noticed recently standards are dropping, staff seem less bothered, food is declining in quality and the service seems to be getting slower. It's never terrible, but it's not what it used to be.

We live very close by and we do visit quite often. To be fair though, if they stopped doing their 2 for 1 offer on almost every dish I think we would stop going. We like the burgers, hot dogs and pizzas. Not a big fan of the lasagna, kebabs or pasta.

We used to really enjoy coming here, but standards are dropping. Convenience and the 2-4-1 is what keeps us coming back.

The hotel rooms are pretty good and the price is excellent. It is just the restaurant that is letting it down.

Asked for quiet area, they put where a group of running screaming kids were situated. We moved ourselves.

When ordering I asked for extra gravy. They brought my toad in the hole with an extra three sausages as well. Never asked for but they certainly made sure it was on the bill.

Always check your bill. You may find an unexpected shock.
