We went here for a family occasion and were very disappointed. This place was a lot worse than the last time we had been (1 year before). Orders were not taken properly, a few people on the table got the wrong thing. Some menu items were totally unavailable even though our booking was early in the evening. The soup was cold, veg rock hard, beef drowning in gravy. Some people were left waiting while the rest of the table had their food served quickly. Servers took forever to clear the table after the main and were a bit rude. Chairs covered in crumbs/food debris. It just felt like we were forgotten about because they had a football event on in another dining room. This was booked for the parents anniversary and we were actually embarrassed at how it turned out.

Came here for a wedding and had a blast. The place was decorated excellently for the wedding and the bedrooms were very nice too. The food was absolutley great, the cesear salad was well made, and the steak main was brilliant. The steak was cooked just right and had an excellent smokey taste without being burned and the pepper sauce that came with it was delicious. Breakfast the next morning was great too. Also the staff were very warm and welcoming and really went above and beyond for us.

We had a meal there recently and were very impressed. Although we arrived with an extra person and a small baby the welcome we received was wonderful. Great food, service and value for money.

Four of us ate in the Glenside yesterday evening for dinner which was lovely overall. Soup was said to be lovely by the other three while my Caesar salad was lovely too though I was disappointed at the lack of the correct lettuce (cos, baby gem, romaine etc) but otherwise lovely, dressing was really good too. 2 lamb shanks and 2 salmons were cleared from the plate really tasty as were the side accompaniments, nice chips and vegetables too. Desserts were lovely, all apple pies (!!) and a nice cup of tea to wash it all down. We all ordered from the early bird which I thought was really good value for money, staff were very attentive and friendly too. Would recommend to a friend!

Despite living in the area for 10 years, this was my first visit. There was a good choice at the lunchtime carvery and I went for the lamb shank in red wine jus. It was delicious, albeit tricky to cut the meat off the shank without risking it ending up in your lap! My companion (age 4) opted for chicken gougons and chips. Unfortunately this had to be cooked from scratch so I was finished mine before hers arrived (roasting hot from the fryer). Four year olds do not eat fast - so it was something of a disjointed and slow experience but we had a good ol' chat in between. At lunchtime, on this particular Monday in any case, the Glenside appeared to have an older age group in, many of whom appeared to know each other and who I guessed frequented the place. I might try somewhere a bit livier and a bit more child friendly next time I'm out with my chick (we're trying to avoid the fast food usuals at the moment though!)
