Used to eat here regularly, sadly since the menus changed the standards have dropped, and this is reflected by the lack of customers. (They don't even do garlic bread anymore?) The staff are excellent always helpful, but I have no plans to return, my wife and I are looking elsewhere.

The turkey and vegetables were good, but the roast potatoes were very hard and my colleague couldn't eat hers. We mentioned the potatoes to the waitress and she said she was sorry to hear that, but absolutely nothing was done about it. The bill was for the full amount and we were not offered more potatoes. The desert was Ok,... More

Used to come here regularly but they've changed the menu recently. Lots more fish dishes and taken off the regular meals. Staff are always friendly though.

Slow service. Lack of attention from staff. Had to get my own cutlery. Place done up to look old but the job is so naff that nobody is fooled. Pate starter overpriced. The steak pie full of jelly & little resembling chunks of beef. More of a pudding than a pie in some ways. The spuds kind of think they... More

It has lots of choice. Baked Sea-bass to Mixed Grills. High Quality for Low Prices. Generally Great Service.

We have always come here for brilliant fillet steaks. Unfortunately our last 3 visits have been very disappointing. The quality of meat being used now is way below par. Filler steaks over cooked, stringy and chewy. Such a shame as everything else was lovely. Will sadly be finding a new steak house.

The restaurant can't be blamed for Whitbread's current view on what a Beefeater's menu should include, but when you pay £20 for the new "Duo of Beef" and can't get rid of the taste of smoke for hours afterwards you have to assume that someone at head office is having a quiet snigger. Perhaps that's what made the syrupy decoration... More

We arrived around 6 in the evening the restaurant was almost empty, we asked for a table for 2 the female who was at front desk asked had we booked when we said not she acted as if it were unlikely we could be accommodated. After consulting the screen for some time she almost grudgingly allocated us a booth below... More

This was my second visit for breakfast. My son particularly likes the pastries and its great that he eats free as they are a little dry for my taste. The choice on the cooked breakfast is great though. Waiting team could clear the tables a little quicker and replenish clean glasses/mugs etc in the self service area, but a rather... More

Fantastic breakfast today with great customer service from Marcus. Nothing was too much trouble for him. He is a superb front of house manager. Oh and breakfast was so delicious! Lots of choice, from continental to full English! Well worth a visit!
