We have just visited the Trawlerman for lunch with relatives and cannot praise it too highly. Having chosen the carvery, we were delighted to see the excellent selection of food on offer. It was really first class and without doubt one of the best carvery meals that we have had anywhere and superb value for money. We will certainly be... More

We absolutely love it here, the best carvery we've ever been to. We live an hour away but gladly travel because the food is always delicious. The pricing is so reasonable too, the best £5.99 spent!

Another excellent meal. We had the carvery and were not disappointed. Stopped by at 5pm. Restaurant was already busy with most of the tables reserved, but they found us a table. Nothing is ever too much trouble. The staff are great. We had the carvery and 2 soft drinks for under £15. Great value. Thank you.

This visit was on Sat12th Nov, arrived at 1:30 & was eating by 2:00. Went for the large plate carvery & must say it's huge & well worth the extra... More
