REVIEW: Stag & Rainbow Beefeater Grill Resturant

I was asked to review the new breakfast deal from the restaurant and I went along with my husband, our 8 year old son, David, and my 9 year old sister, Latisha at 9am on 2nd July.

Side view of the restaurant.

The breakfast is great value at £7.99 per person and up to 2 children (aged 15 and under) eat FREE with each paying adult. There is a great choice of food, and best of all is, you can eat and drink as much as you like!

There is a great selection to choose from as you can see:
Cooked breakfast selection
Premium pork sausages
Vegetarian sausages
Back bacon
Eggs (choice of scrambled, boiled, fried, poached or a plain 2 egg omelette)
Button mushrooms
Heinz baked beans

Continental breakfast selection
Kellogg's cereals (soya milk available on request)
Granola creations (granola cereal with your choice of yoghurt, dried fruit and fresh fruit salad toppings)
Bread (white or malted wheat)
Fresh fruit salad
Mixed berry compote
Yeo Valley organic yoghurts

Costa coffee
Twinings teas (everyday, decaffeinated, lemon & ginger, peppermint, blackcurrant, ginseng & vanilla, camomile and green tea)
Chilled fruit juices (orange, apple and pomegranate)

There is also a Grab & Go Breakfast option for £2.95 getting you a croissant and a Costa coffee or tea.

When we entered the restaurant, we were promptly greeted by Claire and shown to our table. She was very nice and polite and was very helpful and approachable.

The restaurant was very neat and tidy, very clean and well looked after. The seating was very comfortable and plenty of space between the tables, so you didn't end up clashing chairs with the people sitting next to you like in some other places.

Everything was well set out - the buffet and everything. All the food was readily available, as were the drinks - there was nothing from the menu that was unavailable. All the cutlery and crockery was very clean, as you would expect. The food area was set out spaciously so it was easy for everyone to get their food and drinks.

My choice of breakfast was bacon, sausages, a fried egg, baked beans, a slice of toast and some mushrooms. The bacon and sausages were cooked perfectly - not underdone or burnt - just perfect really.  Same for everything else - it was really delicious and I was very impressed. My only regret is that I didn't have space for some more! I also enjoyed some delicious coffee - which, unlike some places I have had a coffee, it was actually hot as it should be. I also had a delicious chocolate muffin which was delightfully moist and tasty.

My husband, Paul, initially had some fried and scrambled eggs, beans, mushrooms and toast all of which he enjoyed. As he is vegetarian, he ordered some veggie sausages (as they are not readily available) which were cooked and brought to him quickly and he thought these were very nice. He followed that up by fruit salad and a muffin which he enjoyed. He had some coffee, milk and pomegranate juice as drinks - all of which he liked - the cold drinks were actually cold and the hot drinks were always hot.

My son, David, went for some bacon, egg, sausages, tomatoes to start with and he enjoyed it all very much. He also tried the muffins which he loved! He had a glass of milk, a glass of apple juice and a cup of tea (kids drink a lot!) too.

My sister, Latisha, had some bacon and sausages - she's a very fussy eater! She also tried the muffins and some apple & grapes which she liked. She had a  couple of glasses of milk, a glass of apple juice and a cup of tea.

I had the opportunity to talk to the manager, Jackie (hope I've spelt her name correctly) and she was very nice, approachable and attentive. She was really lovely. She bought the kids some balloons and a colouring book and some crayons which made them very happy. She even gave them a little bag to put some stuff to take home in. She was very down to earth and you could see that she interacted with her staff well too - it was a very nice environment to be in.

I had a brief opportunity to meet the general manager, Paul too (only briefly as he had been in a meeting) and he was also very approachable and down to earth.

I definitely got the impression that the management and staff worked together well and I think they run their establishment very well as a team.

There was always someone around if you wanted to request something else which was good - if you wanted to order eggs cooked in a different way, or grilled tomatoes or the veggie sausages - there was always someone around to get you what you needed.
