This was miss sold to me by Open Table. The food is a set menu with little choice. The chicken skewers was chewy and the Sunday lunch plastic. It is a far cry from the way it used to be but someone has to pay for the refurb. Unfortunately, there was 3 couples and it still took 2 hours to get food. Go to Ashton Moss or the Harvester next door. You get good quality food, descent options & portions for half the price. Village, I’m disappointed to say the least !

Fabulous service & great food. This is now our go-to place for me and a few colleagues to have a natter & something nice to eat. Big shout out to the guys who added some extra special lovely touches for my colleague's belated Birthday celebration.

Village Hotel should market their restaurants better than they do. For £15 you get a 3 course meal very well cooked. The food is excellent quality and you get a mix of self serve and served to table

Awful from start to finish. Food was horrible was in there over 2.5 hours service was slow. Would not recommend Sunday lunch now they have changed it from a carvery. Starters tiny desserts poor choice and Sunday lunch inedible. Had to wait on several occasions for them to put enough starters out and desserts. We were a party of 9 and 4 meals came out 20 mins later than everyone else’s. Food items missing from most people’s meals. Waitress was very apologetic and so was the manager and we didn’t pay for the meal. Was for my husbands birthday which was ruined. Very disappointed and won’t be returning unfortunately and we have been numerous times in the past and loved it!

We knew the seating was in the bar but I don't class a sports bar as a good environment to enjoy a meal. Waitress was lovely but service slow. Menu very poor selection. Main course good. Desserts very poor value. Noise levels meant we were glad to get out.

Ended up there during a live football game. Noise was horrendous, the atmosphere even worse. Rather would have gone to the “street corner” pub..

Venue was cold and noisy. I wouldn’t use the pub & grill section again for lunch unless it was for watching sports and drinking.

The Sunday lunch was delicious and whilst the starters were good, we had to ask for plates, several items were missing from the menu as they had not been replenished and tgen the soup split all over our dish as the previous user had not secured the lid on the jug. None of this had been supervised by staff snd we kept having to walk around the restaurant area to alert staff to these issues.
The ambience was good but there was a large, noisy crowd of mainly males present to watch the football which at times was quite intrusive. I would therefore not recommend this venue for a family Sunday lunch as it was difficult to have a conversation without raising our voices at times.
The staff were very pleasant, the area was clean and the restaurant was well designed and nicely decorated. The puddings were delicious but quite expensive like the drinks!

Had the steak 2 for £30. I asked for it medium rare. The waitress said “ you can have it rare or well done as the steak is that thin. I got it rare it wasn’t even warm. The chips were nice tho. Not happy with the extra charge for peppercorn sauce. The glass of red wine with it was nice except the glass being covered in lipstick. Will go back but not for the steak

Food was terrible worst iv ever had. Could compare to Hospital food in the 70's. Slump in the middle of rowdy football fans. Not a place for family meals at all. The food tasted horrible. The roasted potatos wasnt even roasted. Charged me full adult price for my 15 year old daughter who ate nothing. £60 for a carvery your having a laugh. How can they get it so wrong. 2 meats beef and Ham, instant mash , hard carrots , horrible cabbage , cauliflower coffee tub with gravy in thats your meal. Side was a prawn coxktail or roll mop. Soup starter. And deserts where terrrible. A trifle , a strawberry mouse , a lemon mouse or ice cream... all in small yogurt pot style cups. Worst 4 course meal ever. Worst carvery ever and also over charged for it. They have large tv screens blasting football and let any of the locals in whoever chooses. Worse than weatherspoons on giro day i wreckon.

We have been visiting Sunday lunch carvery for few years in this restaurant. It used to be more grand, now the same physical space is occupied by pub and the restaurant.
The starters selection used to be more generous with platters of salmon and cured meats, versus now a smile taster positions of salads with morcels of salmon.
Main carvery is slightly improved with large self closing dishes that keep side fishes: vegetables etc, hot and hygienic.
Although some if those tasted as if they have been cooked few days ago.
Ice cream machine was great in working order, kids loved it.
Value was good for us, during Sumner break for 1 paying adult 1 kid under 12 years old eats free.

Went for sunday carvery. This is buffet style and because it’s quiet, everything is kept warm and is dry as a boot.
Staff were too busy watching the women’s World Cup to clear tables.
Not good

My wife and I dine regularly at the village Ashton moss but was very disappointed this time, lukewarm soup to start with, the starters I feel should be kept chilled which they aren’t, and the gravy for the main meal is always cold, not sure why they use coffee pots to keep the gravy warm, my wife then got a dessert which the custard was all curdled because it had been there too long.
