The service was the best I've received, better than a weekday lunchtime. You obviously excel when it's busy! Our order came in good time and was all hot and well cooked Everyone we came into contact with were friendly and polite It was my first visit on a Sunday but will definitely return

Staff were very welcoming. However, the person carving the meat could smile a little ... he was very grumpy!

Really friendly staff and good food, the layout needs looking at and the car park is a little tight for a larger car. Despite these two minor points I would go back and recommend to people, thank you.

Staff are lovely but unfortunately the food isn’t great. Had the carvery and it’s definitely not worth the money!

Table was ready, children’s pizza was way too big and that was all there was. Roast potatoes were awful and slices of meat were thin. Service is good but we were disappointed.

Got here earlier than booked, no problem, seated immediately. Had the Carvery, fresh and hot with good service and a really good selection of meats and vegetables. Would visit again if ever in the area.

This was my second visit to The Tavistock (the last one some time ago) I booked lunch for 4 of us. Lovely atmosphere - the young lady serving was welcoming and chatty - when a child at another table split a drink she dealt with it in a beautiful manner reassuring the child that it didn't matter. The carvery is great value for money - and the vegetables fresh and not over cooked. Definitely a place to revisit :)

Reserved a table for 2 online for the Sunday carvery at 7pm. This was done a couple of hours in advance and there was plenty of availability showing. Arrived just before 7 to be told they had run out of meat for the carvery! This was quite early in the evening to have run out of meat, especially as the Tavistock promotes the fact it has a four meat carvery. I can understand that they may have been slightly busier than they expected but to run out of all 4 meats quite this early suggests bad planning. We obviously didn't stay, after all a Sunday roast without the main attraction is just too sad!

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here to celebrate a birthday. The only issue we had was the lack of choice for vegans and having to pay £10.95 for a carvery of just vegetables. The carvery was very good though with fresh food constantly being put out.

Carvery is excellent. Plenty of staff to serve. Can be draughty if you are close to the front door. Need to get timings right if some of your party are not having carvery otherwise you end up not eating at the same time.
