We visited for lunch, 4 adults 2 children… We weren’t given a kids menu and I had to go and ask for one, we ordered drinks, the wrong drinks were then brought out. After a considerable wait no one came back to take our order...so we had to flag down a passing waitress. Food then arrived after a very long wait! One of the meals had cellophane in it from the microwave packs they must use! (So why it takes so long for the food I don’t know) The child’s food came out and the mash portion was less than I would give small baby learning to eat. My 4 year old even asked where’s the rest of the mash. The sausages were gross and the child (who eats everything) didn’t even want them. The gravy was just grease. Really annoyed I have even spent any money here.. the only offer we had was a refund on the meal which came with cellophane! Should have walked out when they took so long for drinks to arrive.More

Popped in for early dinner. Very limited menu, in fact it hasn't changed since the last time we were in. Thought we would give it a go again. Seemed that no one knew what they were doing, staff just wondering around looking a bit lost....Lasagne was like baby food and the side salad could have been off someone else's plate. The gammon was OK but I could count the peas on the plate and only had seven chips. It was not the food so much as the lack of cleanliness in the toilets. The gents toilet door was wedged open and it absolutely took your breath away. Where is the cleaner? I honestly would have thought that during lockdown they could have refurbished the bar and toilet area which is now well past its sell by date. Altogether not a good experience. Beefeater get your act together and refurbish this dirty place and improve on the food. The chefs were wandering up and down the stairs and not once did I see them sanitise their hands! We won't be back.More

The breakfasts are brilliant. The food in the evening is a bit of a lottery. Sometimes you win sometimes you lose. Last night's fruit crumble was awful. It had never seen an oven. Keep up the good work keera, rebbeca and Charlotte's daughter, who's name...I forget.More

Popped in without a reservation with my baby daughter for lunch. A little early for lunch service but my order was taken a few minutes before 12. Children's menu has a good selection and is well priced, my daughter was made to feel welcome. Food...was of a good standard, served hot and with the right accompaniments. Sugar free soft drinks are refillable although I only found this out overhearing another table, it wasn't told to me when I ordered. All staff encounters were pleasant and they waved at my little girl everytime they passed by which was nice. A particular mention to the male waiter (close with his brother and parents run a pub). He made time to have a chat and made us feel very welcome :) Bad points - the car park is very sad and needs some love. Some of the interior of the restaurant need some attention, walls need touching up with paint and just some general freshening up. Would return as it's a nice relaxed place to go with children and the food was of a good standard.More

They gave her crayons and a colouring page to keep her occupied.my friend had the chicken and ribs again and I decided to try the pie and mash with veg.i daughter had chicken and my grandaughter had pizza.the meal was top notch and can’t praise the chef enough.the staff were very nice and helpful.although my friend has gone home now we will be visiting the beefeater regularly now.
