Last Sunday we went to the Spinner’s Restaurant for lunch. Every Sunday they serve a Carvery from 1pm to 7pm . For £7.50 a head (£3.50 for under-12s) you can choose up to three roast meats from the carvery, and then help yourself to vegetables. Starters, desserts and drinks are extra.
Spinner’s Restaurant operates in The Weensland Function Suite. The Suite has been constructed within the walls of a former Spinning Mill. Tables are set for 2 to 8 diners. The room was neat and attractive, with plenty of light.
I chose pork and beef, which were thinly sliced. Elizabeth had ham and lamb, both of which were very tender. Vegetables were two kinds of potatoes, with peas, carrots, cabbage and bashed neeps.
Both pork and beef had lots of flavour. Elizabeth’s ham and lamb were tender. The vegetables were just right. I especially liked the flavour of the carrots. The new potatoes melted in the mouth.
We also chose apple crumble and custard as a dessert. The apple was not over-sweetened, and the topping was light and crunchy – just right after a large roast dinner. Along with drinks, our lunch cost £20 – very good value for money.
The owners, Joanne and Michael, are always friendly. The carvery is very popular, and many diners return regularly for Sunday lunch. We always enjoy eating at Spinners and would recommend the restaurant to others.
