Unfortunately due to the local derby football game the carvery was moved into another room. As it was not in the normal settings all the hot food was cold. This was reported to the staff and the bill was discounted.

Food was amazing and great value. A good selection of dishes to suit everyone. The only think I would mention as a negative is the lady behind the bar was throwing empty glass bottles into the glass bin every few minutes which made you jump and feel a little on edge whilst eating.
Our waitress was professional, helpful and friendly. A great evening.

We were so looking forward to this meal at the Village but it happened to be Super Sunday for Sport and the Sunday lunch is served in the same room as 3 screens showing sport and the noise level from the football was horrendous. Our chairs from the table had been taken by a couple of lads who were watching the screens right next us and the waitress couldn’t hear our drinks order and had to lean over us to take it. We couldn’t take it more than 5 minutes and we spoke to the waitress at the bar and said why is the sport on in this room when there is a sports bar across the lobby that was closed and empty and she said this is how ‘they’ want it now. We explained we can’t hear ourselves think or speak and she said she couldn’t do anything about it so we left. It was really disappointing as we have heard good things about the Sunday lunch but we obviously picked the wrong day or did we, as the waitress said this is how it is now so this is the norm. I would like to try it again but we will have to pick our day very carefully.

No directions of where Sunday lunch was held.
Beef was extremley rare.
Mash potatoe was dry (previous visit was watery)
Bread did not taste fresh.
Carrots were cold.
Vegetarian option was only Nut Roast....
Cheesecake base was original (unlike other cheesecake bases)
The Chef could be a bit more welcoming! Or display a sign to let mew customers know the chef will serve the meat & yorkshire pudding.
Beer was nice.
New room decore is nice.

Nice atmosphere, staff extremely helpful. Wide range of starters and deserts and a nice carvery. Lots of meat but there was very little choice on the veg front which would be my only criticism.

Disappointing. Nowhere to book in on arrival - confusing when had booked table. Things constantly missing from starters table. Vegetables tasteless for carvery. Wrong bill bought to table. Football noise from tv screens made Sunday carvery experience not enjoyable. Staff very obliging though.

Spent a Saturday evening here with my sister. The service was great and the waitress was extremely friendly. Ordered the village burger which was amazing, along with the rustic chips. I also ordered a side of jalapeño Mac and cheese but it really wasn’t to my taste as it didn’t have much cheese in and was fairly dry, so I would not order it again. Overall though, it was a lovely experience and i’ll Definitely be going back!

We enjoyed the set 2 course menu. Both had delicious tacos to start. Served in the bambo steamer . They were amazing . I had the lentil & sweet potato curry . Came with mini popodoms and dips . Very tasty . My daughter ordered the chicken skewers . She was served one long skewer of chicken & another of beautiful vegetables, mushroom,onion , peppers & courgette. Served with wedges and tasty dip. Also ordered two children’s meals which were perfect two. Friendly staff and good service. We will definitely return .

This is not the kind of place you go for a special occasion! It’s essentially a poor effort at creating a formal area in a sports bar. Positives - the food was presented well, the menu had a good variety of dishes and the staff were efficient and friendly. Negatives - food was bland and overpriced and felt like we were eating at the back of a college common room! Not the restaurant that it appears on the website!

Food was disappointing as we’ve been before and was so much better, there was a very small amount of veg to choose from as it needed replenishing and dessert was an apple crumble unfortunately it tasted more like apple sauce which should of been served with custard but by the time that arrived the crumble was cold. We was also sat next to the bar and there was the England and Croatia match playing so was very noisy and rowdy.

The website stated a four course meal for the Sunday lunch. A starter, dinner and dessert was three courses. The staff although very pleasant had obviously not been briefed on what the fourth course was. Apparently there are two starters! The food was nice, as we have always found it at the Village Hotels. Screaming kids didn't help the ambience though.

We didn’t stop to eat, it was a Saturday evening and football on numerous big screens , there was people littered everywhere looking at the screens, the noise was deafening, definatly not a place to enjoy a nice evening meal, ok for watching sport and a burger and beer.

Was a little surprised by how much this had changed since the last time we were here - had I realised what is was now we wouldn't have booked.
The food is still good; however, the layout, noise and the fact that there are giant tvs etc means we won't be back.

tables are constantly being moved, not much space between tables, soup was ok but nothing wow, would of been better if it was hotter.
Selection of starters was very good, no complaints.
Carvery was awful, served on cold plates, Turkey was ok but the gammon was far to salty, frozen sprouts and cabbage cut like coleslaw yuk, had to wait for gravey and whoever made the Yorkshire puddings shouldn't be working in a kitchen, very bland and the wrong texture.

Noise was so bad that we cancelled our booking and took our friends elsewhere to a quieter environment. Not at all what we expected.

Had to show 'poor' above as survey would not be submitted - but only had experience of breakfast which was good.

Had not been for Sunday lunch for a while used to come quite often. They have now moved the pub into the restaurant with massive tv screens everywhere. The atmosphere is awful couldn't hear yourself think you can hear everyone conversations and the tv screens are intrusive. Not a relaxing Sunday lunch anymore. The quality of the food is not as good the soup was cold the bread was hard. Not a good experience shame it used to be a nice place to go. Would not recommend.

Restaurant merged with pub in same room. Noisy dining atmosphere. Unsuitable for family of 5 as small tables, noise and we were unable to get pushchair through restaurant easily. Child’s dinner fell to floor as high chair tray not on correctly. Staff replaced promptly as it was their error. Starter arrived with main meal and we got told we should have requested it as a starter as their till doesn’t recognise that it is a starter not a side dish, despite the item being on the starter menu. Waited for over 50 minutes for children’s dessert. The dessert never arrived and there was a quibble regarding refunding this cost. Staff friendly and helpful but poor dining experience overall. I would not recommend for families.

I tried to look for a way to contact you when I got home on Sunday but could not see a contact form.

The manager was particularly friendly and helpful. We had a elderly person with us who eats very little and I was able to get a reduced rate. The service from all who spoke to us was excellent. I only missed the hot puddings that used to be there.
