Visiting from Canada and found the carvery excellent and service just as good. Will come back for sure, even had games for the kids to play in the pub.

We have been visiting the Watermead for a lunchtime carvery over the past couple of years . Today's lunchtime visit will be our last. We have watched the quality of food go down and the price go up . Inexperienced staff being asked to do jobs i.e. carvery serving for which they are clearly not properly trained. It is off... More

I took two of my family of today at 5.30 we had the carvery, and the food was cold and the new potatoes were black. We did complain to the waitress but all she said was she would inform the management

Large group of us visited here to try the carvery, very long queues to get meal probably waited in the queue for 10-15 minutes...just a microwave type pub...all tables a bit sticky and needs a good clean!

If you have visited one of these, you have seen them all as it is a tried and tested product. Best for families but I observed couples of all ages and groups, including a birthday party. Tried the carvery which is the same all over England and although the veg is aplenty, the meat portions are very small due to... More

Took my mum for a Sunday lunch and was greeted by a man who asked us if we wanted the children's area or a quite area, as we were two sixty year olds and my mum 90 we opted for the quite area. As he was showing us to the so called quite area we passed loads of empty tables... More

Quiet time of day staff brought deserts and just looked at dirty plates from main menu and left them . In fact 3 members of staff did the same so we sat with our dirty plates throughout meal . Menus need a good clean as every one is sticky . Service was bad .

We use to go each week, but there is no variation on the veggies on a week in week out basis any more. It use to change, now different days have different veggies but if you go two sundays in a row you get the same meal. Tried ordering off the menu, but always been disappointed. Desserts are good though!

Firstly the people on the bar were kind, prices were very good for what you get. However service was very slow and took 20+ minutes after we had finished our starter to take them away. The nachos were lukewarm and cheese wasn't melted, and it was presented poorly. I was told I would be called for my carvery but never... More
