We had the opportunity to have lunch with one of our grandaughers on a short visit from university who particularly liked a good carvery and although we had not been to this one we had heard good reports. We booked although on a Wednesday it would not be important!my I think. There where a choice of four meets and the widest choose of vegetables I have seen in a carvery for some time. If you would like an alternative to a carvery there was other things on a separate menu. The service was good and the staff very friendly. My only negative comment would be on the state of the men's toilets. However I would still recommend a visit here for a very good carvery.

There have been some mixed reviews recently, so I thought I aught to place mine.
We called in without a reservation on Monday evening, and although it was very busy they gave us a table that was reserved but not needed for an hour and quarter.
We ordered the mixed grill and a sirloin steak. it came promptly and we ate leisurely and still cleared the table with nearly half an hour spare. The meal was excellent value for money - (between 5-8pm on a Monday certain dishes, including ours was half price!) they were too filling to manage a pudding!
Well done Island Pool!

Visited on a Sunday. Husband is a vegetarian. The website clearly said that you are vegan friendly etc. We were told that we could have veg from the carvery or a spinach and mushrooms lasagne. He chose the lasagne which turned out to be the worse decision! The food came and the waiter said sorry we ran out of salad so we've given you two extra pieces of garlic bread instead. There were 5 pieces of sliced tinned mushrooms in it. The presentation and the flavour was just shocking. He didn't eat his meal in the end. We wouldn't give it to our dog. It felt like nobody cared about what they were serving the customers. The ladies had a pile of used tissues by the sink. Dirty!
