The pork and leek sausages were delicious. Would just simply go back for those. Good hearty breakfast. Catered for all the party.

    the breakfast was nice, the dinner wasn't great. The Falafel burgers were dry and we didn't eat them, the chips were cold and the nachos were not very nice. Despite the fact that we didn't eat the burgers no one asked if there was a problem with the food when they took the plates away.

    We went as a family of five, two adults and three kids (10, 8 & 2) in October half term for the Scarefest and we stayed in the Enchanted Village for two nights. We arrived late 9pm and the restaurant seated us immediately, I think they stop serving food at 9:30pm so I was happy that they let us order. The food was on our table within 10 mins of ordering which makes me wonder if it's mostly blitzed in the microwave and it certainly didn't taste freshly cooked. We were all disappointed with the food really and the waiter kept asking if everything was ok and kind of just hanging over us a lot, I think he was expecting a tip but he hadn't actually done anything for us as we ordered food and drinks at the bar and someone else brought the food out to us? Strange. Anyway I'd give the food a 4/10, it wasn't great. The whole place could be a lot better with a bit of staff training and it would be great if it was proper table service rather than ordering at the bar. We did have breakfast the next morning as we'd booked and really because there's nowhere else to eat! It was ok apart from the juice machines ran out which caused a queue while we waited for it to be refilled. Oh and the toast machine caught fire...

    I think the people who are in charge of creating places like this at Alton Towers etc should visit Florida and the restaurants in the theme parks to see how it's done properly :-) It could be so much better!

    We very much enjoyed the Nachos with Chilli Beef. However the main courses were terrible, my wife had what was described as a Steak Burger which was indescribable. Could not work out what the party actually was, some sort of reconstituted meat substitute. I had a salad and added Chicken to it, the chicken was a tasteless boiled breast which was hard to swallow. Initially the device was good but as it started to get busy, the staff quickly became overwhelmed. We ate in the restaurant on the 1st Oct at 6.30pm Table 45.

    Lovely clean place. Staff work v hard to please. Seating slightly uncomfortable as they are just wooden chairs. Food lovely and made may take slightly longer. Obviously lots of children so lots of noise. Overall good

    Awful experience, 20 mins to order at the bar, 30 mins wait for the food which came out wrong. My steak was cooked rare and I asked for it well done and my daughters chicken skewers had sauce on it which I asked for it without. Instead of making a new one they took it away, scraped it off and washed it. It came back looking like a dog had chewed it. Another 20 mins for the plates to be cleared after complaining to a manager and another 15 for desert which we sent back. The manager apologised and gave us a part refund but we would never eat here again. We heard so many people complaining about the service and food that night.

    Food was excellent, nachos to share then chicken pasta carbonara. Restaurant pretty noisy with children but to be expected I suppose.
