    I chose the smoked salmon parfait with Prosecco. I couldn’t taste the smoked salmon or the Prosecco. The bread was tough to get through. Sadly I made the wrong choice. My oat mocha was good

    Never been disappointed at the Weavers Restaurant. We have been coming here since our children were young, some 20 years ago. Staff have always been very helpful and understanding with the children and the food has always been delicious. I hope we’ll still be visiting in another 20 years.

    Purchased the Experience including tour of factory which was excellent and really interesting, followed by afternoon tea in the restaurant. Well worth price and food was lovely. Only let down was the mini quiche; very dry with little dried up egg. Staff very helpful and pleasant.

    We came back again after the new menu was launched in April. I would like to thank the 4 staff who were run ragged trying to look after the whole restaurant. We had to wait over 50 minutes for 2 soups and three sandwiches. We were not the only ones. We also overheard missing and wrong items on orders. The bacon was barely cooked in the BLT and the Cullen Skink was more like a weak fish flavoured potato soup. We asked for the tomato to be removed from the sandwich when we ordered, but this was not done. Sorry Weavers, we came back but are not likely to return, especially with a bill of nearly £45 with soft drinks taken off.

    A little disappointed this time round. We haven’t been for a couple of months as it was difficult to get a table. However, the full menu has now been replaced with soup, sandwiches and a few specials. Service was good, food was alright for what was available, but not how it has been over the last few years of coming here. The Cullen Skink and scotch egg used to be amazing.

    Everything we had was lovely and the staff are wonderful- the only small gripe is that they advertise a Sunday roast when only soup and sandwiches were available on the lunch menu. Overall still a delightful experience.

    We went to Weavers for lunch and the food was excellent and great value. Service was good but after our meal when we wanted coffee we had to wait a while before we could get someone’s attention. Other tables were asked if they wanted anything else but not us - they were just busy. We really had a super lunch - probably the best we’ve ever had there - and as fairly regular customers we will of course be back.

    Food good but service disjointed. Understand it was busy but good staffing levels, just seemed to be the organisation. Had reserved table and seated quickly but ages before someone took our order. After our lunch waitress asked if all ok and if we would like anything else. Asked for a traybake but she left and did other tasks and this never arrived so gave up waiting and left….

    Very poor menu. Obviously no suitable chef of chefs employed since mid. Summer, therefore offered tinned soup or a prepared ready meal , meaning nothing like the pervious year when they acclaimed to be awarded winning . I would suggest that the works canteen is a better option for a decent meal.

    The food, service and staff are amazing. Considering it was very busy, it went without a hitch, especially as the johnstones sale was on too. Compliments to Brett, the manager whom we noticed was great with his staff and worked even harder to keep it clean and tidy and ready for the next customers.

    Very much enjoyed our lunch. One of our party is vegetarian and although there wasn't a suitable filling in the classic sandwich selection which was a bit disappointing, the waitress very willingly ordered her an egg mayonnaise filling (which was in the children's section). We hope to be back as the food was good and the staff very attentive.

    Was busy but service was really poor. Not normally the case so definitely a busy or short staffed day. Waited long to be seated despite booking. Had to ask to be served so we could order. Food took a long time without advance notice. Tried to order cakes after but was ignored by 3 staff. New sweet potato flatbread is great but needs lots more yogurt dressing as bit dry overall without it. Great addition to the menu though. Will be back hopefully better next time

    We went for afternoon tea yesterday and it was really good. My only complaint was that when it asked if we had any dietary needs there was one vegetarian and there was hardly any savouries for vegetarians. It was mostly meat. Apart from that it was good it just would of been good to have more vegetarian for the savoury option instead of just one tomato and cheese little quiche.
