Carvery at Eleven is a great option for a quick and substantial meal, especially for a large group (there was 11 of us in) faults on this visit were the length of time the kids meals took to arrive we were almost finished our mains. I think the Carvery could be a little bit cheaper. The pork I had was... More

Went to Eleven for lunch, and had a meal out of the carvery. Meat, as always, well cooked and flavoursome. Vegetables could have been cooked a bit longer, but otherwise no complaints. Don't know what it is about their sweets, though.

The establishment offers the choice of carvery or an a la cart menu. I ordered from the later and found the food to be of good standard and quality. Service was somewhat slow but got there in the end. My criticism would be the noise level in the restaurant, this was due to the number of children running about with... More

I've eaten here before from the carvery, the food was hot, plentiful and tasty. Last week we had the a la carte menu and the food was so good it was hard to make a choice, when I saw monkfish on the menu though, there was no contest! Absolutely gorgeous, good portions and the staff were very friendly and attentive.... More

With a carvery/buffet and table service, this restaurant has good quality food with a great selection day-to-day and a fully-stocked bar. It is great value for money and has a nice, friendly atmosphere with pleasant staff who always seem more than happy to help. Cannot recommend this establishment highly enough.

Tempted to go back here with a party from work; in my last review I said it was like a school canteen, this time the buffet reminded me of one of those big 'all inclusive' canteen type areas in big hotels abroad. If you want a good feed and are not too bothered about surroundings you will probably like it.... More

We ate lunch there. I had the one course carvery buffet. The vegetables were not varied enough. The roast pork was excellent.

The carvery any evening offers a great selection and Sundays offer even more. It is advisable to book on a Sunday, which I didn't do, but the friendly, helpful staff found me a table. Good food, good atmosphere
