“Awful, overpriced food with abismal service”

Written on: 07/07/2014 by GarySu (3 reviews written)

I've eaten in Weston super mare, Bristol centre and Taunton restaurants and have found the food to be overpriced, the staff to be almost Harry Houdini like in their ability to disappear after seating you and never to reappear, even if you paid for refillable drinks and chips. I would recommend that anybody who enjoys food and service avoid this place like the plague… Read Full Review

“Beefeater Travellers Rest Cambridge”

Written on: 21/07/2013

Booking fine! However served pepsi instead of coc though specifically said no pepsi. Dirty cup for tea also cup but no pot of tea!! Side salads contained black and brown rotting lettuce. Slow service with grumpy,totally indifferent waitress. Table extremely ++++ slow to be cleared. Yet for most of our meal we were the only people in the conservatory part of the restaurant. One manager started to defend the chef and the quality of the salad however thanks to a second male manager we received an… Read Full Review

“We went to the St Thomas Wyatt in Maidstone and were...”

Written on: 03/07/2013 by Maur4maur (1 review written)

We went to the St Thomas Wyatt in Maidstone and were told no tables for about half an hour although there were plenty of empty tables we were told they only had two waitresses but we could eat in the bar of the pub which was fine but apart from having to order our meals at the bar the waitress still had to fetch them to us so they have lost our custom just to save a waitress taking an order. The things I have ticked are for this visit only normally we get good service . Also disabled access… Read Full Review

“Pretty reliable and good value”

Written on: 02/05/2013 by Claire81 (4 reviews written)

I don't get anything like the same experience as lots of other recent reviewers here. I use the local Beefeater regularly - and I've never had bad service or bad food for that matter. I have the Beefeater Grill card and it DOES email me with special offers that are worth it. Last night I had 2 mains and a bottle of wine (an Italian Bianco which was nice and quaffable) for £20 which was for their 1st birthday of the Reward Card scheme. New on the menu is calamari, recommended, and in the… Read Full Review

“Beefeater Reward Card”

Written on: 12/04/2013 by redarrow100 (2 reviews written)

The Beefeater Rewards club promises much but delivers less. Basically they promise they will send vouchers for special occasions. These are listed as your own birthday, your spouse’s birthday and other notable dates such as anniversaries. However when it came to my Wife’s birthday (a full 7 months after registering) I did not get a voucher and on complaint was told that it is planned to roll this out over the next couple of months. What a lot of eyewash, I don’t expect they will ever… Read Full Review

“Beefeater Three Fish Newport Telford”

Written on: 17/03/2013 by CPSE (1 review written)

Called in on Sunday 17/03/13 @ 1540, had to wait ten minutes for a table when clearly the restaurant was half empty. Table was right next to an open door and a very cold draught, staff member introduced herself and took our order, not once did she speak to us during the whole meal. It became very obvious that the staff just attended any table when told too by a lady in charge, there body language spoke volumes, staff did not appear to be happy at all. At one point the lady in charge began… Read Full Review

“ as it was on my last visit”

Written on: 17/11/2012 by titch9033 (1 review written)

I visited the Emersons Green Beefeater, at Bristol, with my wife & a friend for lunch 16th Nov.. We ordered a sirloin steak, sea bream,& a chicken salard. The steak was so tough that even the knife supplied woyld not cut it, I wonder if the half of a tomato & one muhroom was a supposed to be a joke. The sea bream portions were smaller than fish fingers and over ccoked, not very pleasant to eat. The chicken in the salad was not fresh, out of a bag & into the micro wave, then flashed in the pan… Read Full Review

“Bad customer service ”

Written on: 23/08/2012 by robbien (1 review written)

We often eat out and was disgusted at the lack of service we received at The Manor Farm in Rainham . We waited for at least 20mins to get any service and a further 20mins to get a drink . The restaurant was not busy at all . Several times we asked for a colouring picture for our child to be told yeh one second . To which i had to then go and get myself. We then had to wait another 20/25 mins for food to arrive . We were told it was bottomless chips so asked for more which we waited and waited… Read Full Review

“Absolutely fanatastic meal”

Written on: 19/08/2012 by Roman123 (1 review written)

We arrived at the Grandstand Beefeater in Newton Abbot and we were greeted by a friendly face. They cleaned the table down in front of us and re-layed it for us. we were introduced to LIZZY, our waitress for the duration of our meal. She was very friendly and explained that the lager was buy one get one half price. She came back to ask if everything was OK with our meal, which many restaurants simply don't do. She made a fuss of our 15 month old daughter and brought out a little bit of ice… Read Full Review

“Food was awful!”

Written on: 06/05/2012

The starter of prawn trio was quite good but the mains were just awful. We both ordered steaks, filet and rump, the filet was chewy and the rump was so bad you couldn't even cut it with a steak knife! Chips were mushy. Service was quite good and they didn't charge us for the mains but will never go back… Read Full Review

“Surprisingly good considering it is in swanley!!”

Written on: 29/03/2012

The decor was nice though it may benefit with a touch more light to it. Staff was friendly and attentive The food was fairly decent, I had the mixed grill and most of it was decent though the beef could do with some more seasoning and was more well done than medium which was disappointing. Overall a nice restuarant to bring the family to and has a nice ambient atmosphere however I did come in the afternoon… Read Full Review
