  • Beautiful park well kept many trails and things for kids to do play areas are well kept and great for kids, you have Blackfoot bistro for a spot of lunch or a coffee and cake but can be a bit pricey. 
  • We often park our car at Banners Gate and walk into Sutton Coldfield centre. We grab a coffee and walk back. Around 4 miles in all in lovely surroundings. Our grandchildren love the play area at Banne...  more »

  • We personally had a terrible experience here. Ignored by the carver as he 'cleaned' the surfaces, we were horrified to see him reach over the meat to wipe up and collect up bits of crumbs and then pull his hand back over the meat and we seen the crumbs dropping onto the turkey. He also done the same with the roast potatoes! Continued to ignore us until he heard a waiter ask is if we were waiting on a carver and then decided to acknowledge us. The experience never got better as we heard the waitress going over to other tables to ask how their food was, she didn't ask us this question and she didn't explain where the drink machine was as we heard her explain to other diners (we had refillable drinks too) When our son decided he had eaten enough of his meal and wanted his ice cream it took over 10 minutes to get the waitresses attention to order the ice cream. By this time we were all finished our meals and had to wait for our son to finish his ice cream before we could leave (our normal plan of action is to let him eat his ice cream while we finish our dinners and do not have to wait so long) We are normally more than happy to tip the waiters/waitresses even though it is a self service resturant, but today we did not leave a tip! We can say with confidence we will never be eating at this carvery again! The food was nowhere near to the standard of other Toby carvery see have eaten at! If I could award 0 stars instead of 1 I would. We even struggled to get the waitresses attention to ask for the bill and when I paid we waited for our change and the waitress handed me nearly 2 pounds in change and 'forgot' about the £10 note!
  • Good roast dinners as standard, service with a smile and well placed in the park. It's not expensive but don't expect a wealth of choice - its a pub restaraunt setting focused on roasted food. Its a serve-yourself system so don't expect huge amounts of table service
  • Disappointing. Got here, seated by a waitress and told someone will be over to serve us shortly. No one came over so we got our own drinks from the bar. Helped ourselves to the carvery and even had the time to finish it before we even saw a waitress to give us the bill. The table had not been cleaned and the chair had food all over it. The food was of poor quality. The broccoli was most definitely not cooked, the potatoes were dried out and burnt, the carrots looked like they had been sat there all day, there was no gravy and overall it was an atrocious dining experience. I would be more understanding and considerate if they were busy and rushed off their feet, however that was not the case. I usually go to the Carvery in Streetly but came to this one as I was here with my family a few weeks prior to my visit today... And there were 30+ of us, the waitress did a fabulous job of serving so many people, not only my family but many other customers on that very busy evening.
  • Good honest food and friendly service. Set in the beautiful Sutton Park.
  • Always friendly rain or shine, they offer some really nice vegetarian option, and are reasonably with allergies and are cautious too which is handy if you have a allergy suffer keep in mind it's a carvery with a buffet of vegetables to go with your main.
