Not been to the Island Pool for a few years. When we went today it had been transformed and what a transformation!! Fast friendly service and we both had the Sunday Carvery. What a fantastic Carvery it was!! Smooth fluffy mash and cauliflower cheese to die for....can highly recommend. We will be back!

Let's be honest, what quality do you expect when a buffet breakfast is advertised at under £5. Yes, me too. However as friends had stated that improvements had been made and that their experience had been good we decided to take the plunge. If the breakfast had been £10 then I would probably mention that the bacon was perhaps a... More

We used to be regulars here and I mean at least twice a week for meals every week. We haven't been in for probably a year and I believe it has changed hands. They have certainly given the place a face lift and it is for the better it looks great however I'm afraid for us the food we can't... More

I went to the Island Pool today with a friend. I had never heard of this Carvery and was astonished by the meal. Carvery for £5, excellent food, very friendly staff and a lovely clean place. Will definitely go there again, planning a 65th Birthday meal for July, it will certainly be there.

Lovely carvery, well cooked meats, beef that's lovely and soft. Good selection of vegetables and onion gravy what more could you ask for. It all looks clean and tidy due to the refurbishment.
