I am completely disgusted at the customer service offered at the village.
I booked online for the restaurant as we arrived we were told they were very busy and given one menu which was very limited and expensive, there wasn’t anything we particularly liked but ordered anyway.
Only to find that other people opposite were being served completely different food to that on the menu we ordered from.
We then raised this with a staff member who bought over a team leader who told that us that were wasnt able to have that food as our food was cooking.
Yet said if we had asked to have that menu then we could of ordered from that menu but as we didn’t ask them we couldn’t. However we told the team leader we were not aware is that menu and should of been informed to make the choice ourselves.
We were informed that as we part of the restaurant and not the pub you are not given a choice.
And all that could happen was given 10%off food but I should of requested pub instead of restaurant when I booked and there was a board on the promoting the food but we could not have this.
As we had been given misleading information and found the whole atmosphere and customer service uncomfortable we left without having our food and payed for drinks.
I will not be returning to this establishment again.

Seated at 8pm, still waiting for someone to take our drinks order at 8.20pm. Couple seated after us, were eating their starters before anybody came to our table. When we were served, took about 25 minutes for our food to arrive. Food was nice, piping hot, and well presented. The new changes are great, open plan, better tables, however, it is not as cosy as it was before, and it was very loud in there. Seats are not the most comfortable either. Maybe due to the refurbishment of the bar, that the locals were sat in the restaurant area, hence the noise. Two great big televisions on the walls, in the restaurant area, which leads me to believe that this is where the majority of the locals will gather to watch the sport. The tv's are great but they were both showing the same thing, Baseball, at 9.30pm and nobody was watching them. If you want a quiet meal, then this is not the place to go. If you like noisy rowdy places, then you will love this.

Really poor restaurant. Bread rolls and butter served at end of main course instead of before as requested. The kitchen was unable to provide tea or coffee at the end of the evening meal (the in-house Starbucks had closed by this time).
One to be avoided!!

I was booked in for 1230pm, I arrived @1225pm, I asked at reception where I needed to go for the carvery, she directed me. As I approached the door, there was aRed rope across the door, I walked around and went inside (inspiration room) I man approached me(Matt) and said we are not ready as yet, go and sit in reception and I will collect you when ready.
During my wait which was over roughly 45 mins, no one approached me, I watched different groups of people going down the passageway and not returning, I sat with my 2 young children 3&9. I had to approach the Manager who seemed to be in charge and explained the situation.
Matt approaches me around 3 mins later saying, oh sorry I forgot about you and it's been busy.
Matt offered me 3 free drinks. The food wasn't that hot, wasn't a lot of variety compared to the Dudley branch, which we normally attend but they were fully booked out, so we used Walsall.
As it was the last weekend of the holidays I thought I would treat my eldest and what a mistake that was.
My overall experience was a joke, if I hadn't have got up and asked what was happening, I would have just been left there. No apology from no one just a bottle of Cider, small Coke and a Fruit shoot.

Although food was good I was disappointed that the restaurant area was closed off for refurbishment, and was not informed of this as I booked on line. We were put into a room at the back which was just not suitable I don't think for sunday lunch. I was particularly disappointed as two of the party were celebrating birthdays and I was a bit embarrassed as I had booked the table expecting it to be in the restaurant. Afterwards there were very few seats in the foyer to relax and enjoy a coffee.

On arrival restaurant was closed for refurbishment. Despite my booking there was no call from the hotel to advise this and it is still possible to make reservations even though it is closed.

on Sunday it's a 3 course buffet style carvery. An amazing selection of starters and desserts plus 3 meats and loads of very fresh veg on the carvery. We went for a family birthday and the staff were helpful and friendly. The restaurant is light, airy and vey clean. We were offered a soup starter bought to the table or help yourselves cold dishes that included a deli table, prawn cocktails and smoked salmon. The carvery main was well cooked and served hot. The desserts were a cold table of mousse, cheesecake, fresh fruit cocktail or a hot dessert of crumble and custard or an ice cream sundae was bought tot he table. I can recommend the sunday lunch as it's tasty, all you can eat and very good value

We arrived and ordered a vegetarian option, whilst we helped ourselves to the selection of starters: a choice of packet soup, cherry tomatoes with a chunk mozzarella, or lettuce.
Once we had finished, I asked the chef for the vegetarian option that I had requested, which he went to collect. A minute or two later, our waitress came over to our table and asked me if the Chef had told me that there weren't any veggie options and I would have to have a veggie burger instead. I told her that he hadn't and that I didn't want a veggie burger on my carvery. I then asked why she hadn't informed us sooner because had I known, I would have chosen to eat somewhere else.
The waitress went to speak to the Chef and then came back to assure me that the veggie burger was very similar to the usual option and that I wouldn't notice a difference. I agreed to try it but made it clear that if I didn't like it, I would be sending it back.
I went to collect my food and the chef on the carvery slapped the burger onto the plate with his ungloved hands (to the disgust of all of the customers behind me) and then tried to pick up my Yorkshire pudding with the knife that he had been carving the meat with! Luckily, I managed to stop him in time but he couldn't understand what he had done wrong! Nevertheless, I tried my burger.
The spongy, tasteless mass on my plate had clearly been microwaved for too long. I called over a waitress (who was both lovely and also a vegetarian) and explained the situation. Horrified, she took the plate away and sent the manager over.
The manager listened as I explained the issues; that I was not paying for the tripe that I had been served and that I considered myself as very easy going but that the restaurant's attitude to vegetarians was stuck in the 80s. She nodded but was completely uncaring- merely saying that she would "have a word with the chef".
On our way out, the restaurant tried to make my Husband pay for my meal, which refused to do.

Visited here for Father’s Day unlimited carvery,I’ve been before and it was really nice but this time it was very poor.
Long queues for the carvery,only 1x person serving.Gravy was watery and meal was quite tasteless-definitely not worth the £16 per person.They also weren’t doing the unlimited ice cream sundae,I’d got children with me and they were really looking forward to that.When it came to paying I had to ask for the £10 vouchers that I knew were included,they weren’t passed to us!!
Not impressed and won’t be returning.

Lovely meal and well worth the money. I have to follow a gluten free diet and the chef made me starters I could eat and they had gluten free rolls. Lots of choice for each course and carvery was beautiful. Lovely friendly staff and not too busy so at 1.30pm on a Sunday. Real value for money. I will definitely be visiting again soon.

First time but will certainly not be the last. Booked for a Sunday lunch for a group of 3 at 12.30. Staff were welcoming, very pleasant and polite. The food was of a good choice and plentiful. My only complaint would be if the plates for the carvery were a little warmer. I am glad that we chose an early time because it did start to fill up quite quickly but for what you get for the price you pay it is hardly surprising. Looking forward to my next visit.

The Sunday lunch organisation has changed for the better since our last visit. The Carvery and starters bar stand on their own with the gravy and soup area at the side. The sweets area is separate or you can order to your table. The seating is comfortable and the Staff were very welcoming. They also looked after a diner very well who was taken ill at the table, even showing concern for fellow diners. An ambulance arrived very quickly. The only downside we saw was that some families allowed children to run around shouting etc. but we appreciate the Restaurant is limited in its ability to handle this scenario as todays parents seem oblivious to the nuisance their children are causing. People are walking about with hot meals which could cause problems. Overall a very good experience and one which we will be repeating. The staff made our day with their excellent service.
