1st visit for Sunday Lunch, 1.30pm.

Quite and gradually got busier but not noisy at all.

Food was very good, starters very good, Carvery meats excellent, good choice of vegetables( 1 comment on the Mashed Potatoes, very dry I think the Heat Lamps were too powerful )

Sweet we chose the Jam Roly Poly, very good.

Overall experience really good and will book again

Clueless.
Most stressful meal in a long time.
Sat at multiple tables when being seated, to then only be moved by a manager, because 2 people can't sit on a table for 4. Then watched the same manager sit an couple in a booth for four. Tables around us left after we ate starters, their dirty plates and glasses were still there when we left.
The manager was rushing around like the world was about to end, whilst his staff moped around like they had nothing to do (Despite the accumulating filth surrounding us). The carver at the carvery I really felt for. After queuing for 10 mins to get to the front of the queue, she apologised and said she had to refill the veg which was bare. Why she was doing this and carving is beyond me. She was clearly overworked and had to struggle with about 5 roundtrips to the kitchen.
I honestly wanted to get all the staff and management in a room and ask them what the hell was going on. No communication, no initiative, no clue. Gordon Ramsay would have a field day!
Not going back.

I have used the restaurant for many years and have been it decline the last few visits. On being seated wasn't asked if we required starters had to call waiter over .
not cleaned up.
No one asked if desert was required had to ask Waiter again after 15minutes wait desert came with a appolagy about the presentation.
I complained to staff and had to symathise as there was not a enough staff on .
It was obvious that there was nobody in charge and nobody organizing staff and it was totally a shambles. Have been a member for many years and it will be a long time before I visit the restaurant on a Sunday again.

We were disappointed as we expected a certain standard at least on dress code especially as the Village claimed to have one. One customer was on his phone constantly and even put it on loud speaker and we asked one of the servers to have a word.

Was not that way impressed after been shown to our table nobody botherd to come over and take our drinks order, after 15 mins of waiting i had to ask someone to take the order, then nobody came over to tell us about the soup so had no idea there was even soup available until we fetched our dinner and i asked why there wasnt none and got told that somebody should have come over and told us, had to get back up and ask for another drink and for the table to be cleaned after having plates infront of us for about 10 mins after finishing. Then only ice cream for desert and all the toppings had been removed from the counter.i was going to book my familys xmas day dinner here but after the poor service and disappointment i dont think i will be.

Village restaurant has improved enormously and the food is good quality and very tasty.
Our waiter was excellent, just the right balance of attention and not too much fuss.
The rustic chips are delicious and the salmon and chicken also very good.

We booked a table at the restaurant as we were staying in the hotel, we arrived at 7.30pm and it seemed a bit quiet but we were told that 3 members of staff had rang in sick so they were unable to accomodate any more people. We had 2 courses with a glass of fizz for £29 and it was great value for money, the food was really nice. The service was good considering there was only 2 members of staff waiting and serving and one of the members of staff was actually training.

Food was good, starters could be more for example soup. Waiters need to explain more for people who haven’t been their before. I asked for a desert and was told he needed to sort the top table first, I thought that was rude as I was there first not the top table

We regularly visit for Sunday lunch. The main was nice, but the dessert options are not to standard. In the past there were fudge cake and lemon meringue pie. I just don’t think the ice cream machine cuts it.
The service from the lady who was looking after us was great. She totally fussed over my daughter which is nice to see.

Very friendly and welcoming staff, and good ambience, but the food was rather disappointing, apart from the starters - nice selection of cold meats and fishy things. The ham at the carvery was very tough - although the turkey was OK - and all the vegetables were very overcooked. The desserts, apart from the fresh fruit salad (not bad) were all creamy and tasteless. Pity the food didn't match the lovely staff.

Visited the village Carvery for the first time.
There wasn’t a great choice of starters or veggies.
But the the staff were very lovely and helpful.
Personally I wouldn’t return here for a Carvery lunch.
