My Sister and I had lunch in The Viaduct recently and it was delicious. It was carvery with a great selection to choose from. The portions were huge. We had no room for desert. The staff were nice and friendly. It was very busy as usual but oplenty of room for everyone.

The food was over priced for typical bar food. I met two staff members and they both had a terrible attitude.

Had a quick dinner here before a meeting. Staff very obliging and helpful. Lasagne was enormous with too many extras added- extra cheese, extra sauce, pesto Very tasty though. Enough for two.

Lovely food and lovely staff. Great variety of foods and desserts. Prices are decent prices and great portions. Staff are very helpful. We go on a regular basis for carvery, when carvery is over the waitress takes orders at the table. Staff are so helpful and friendly.
