Booked Christmas lunch. Arrived and was met by wonderful staff. First course was nice, although my soup could have been alittle warmer. Presentation of starters excellent. Main course of turkey and the trimmings was what let it down. The turkey tasted as if it had been cooked from a frozen joint, the vegetables were hard and needed to be cooked...

Friendly helpful staff. Relaxed Atmosphere. I would have given a higher rating but my Chicken pie though it had a very tasty filling the pastry was solid, I could not cut it and we could have done with a few more extra veg. Hopefully the pastry was a one off as the rest of my and my husbands meal was...

Got there latish...just about made mealtime efore Chef goes off shift. Met some good friends who own a rallyschool nearby. Have some great meals there and the beer was good. Styed in the small flat outside which was very cool. No problems at all. I would recommend The Eliot for a meal or overnight stay.

We booked a table for 13.00 for 5 people as a family get together. The feedback on line looked ok. I am not a snob, but the atmosphere and, décor was poor. The other guests were not who we would mix with. When my wife went to look at the only food option, the carvery, we left and found an...

Didn't eat the chips as they looked and tasted like there were the day befores. All in all very...
