Absolutely brilliant. We opted for the carvery and a pudding. The table was exactly as booked with no waiting or messing about. The food was great. Big plates and even bigger servings. Tasty, filling and most of all loads of flavour. The puddings were brilliant too. I opted for a cheese cake but also fancied custard absolutely no problem. Again can't highly recommend enough. Way better than other more expensive Manor restaurants.

I had not been to the Island Pool for some years but a car meet there one Sunday morning reminded me to try it for lunch. It was just right, I booked as suggested by reviews I had read, and my friend and I were shown to a pleasant table by a window we both had carvery which was excellent and the value for money will encourage us to visit regualy

Absolutely top quality carvey, always very impressed. Everything is cooked to perfection. They also give a good portion of meat on your plate.

Fantastic food and staff. Very reasonably priced. Only minor criticism would be a little cramped and noisy at the tables near to the Carvery area. However, would certainly not deter me from visiting .
