    We liked the lay out of the tables in the restaurant and the decor (Mackintosh ?) The service was excellent and the food was the most delicious restaurant meal we have had in ages! This was our first visit to the restaurant, so our comments must be limite, although we have used the cafe often for business meetings with great enjoyment and friendliness.

    Lovely to be able to park!

    It was our first visit to Arbennig and we were not disappointed. The food was absolutely stunning. All four of us chose from the Christmas menu and each course was beautifully cooked and presented and tasted delicious. We will definitely be visiting again, soon!

    The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, very friendly staff amthough had to wait a bit for them to come and take our drink orders. Thw food was amazing but the whole evening was spoilt because it was so cold. I admit i was in a thin blouse (but most going out clothes are) to the point I had to ask for a blanket! My feet were extremly cold and i was wearing sicks and boots! By the time I got home I had to have a bath just to warm up .

    Really enjoyed although let down by the fact that bread with smoked salmon starter had margarine in dollops all over it rather than perhaps butter in a side dish/knob. Please take this as constructive criticism though as we all thoroughly enjoyed. Pannacotta with coffee ice cream was just great!

    Fantastic food and perfect service

    Food was delicious with varied menu. Staff were friendly and attentative although we had 3-4 waiter staff. It would of been nicer with one allocated to us. Also at the end the bill was given to me, and not my partner or placed in the middle of the table and then the waiter asked if we wanted to split the bill. I did find this a little insulting, but it did not ruin our dining experience.
