    An enjoyable lunch with good service. The chef produced an excellent dish for my friend who has special dietary requirements. Just wish there were more options for the rest of us on the set lunch menu - of a choice of 4 mains there is always (1) burger and chips and (2) battered fish and chips neither of which are particularly healthy which leaves only two to choose from. Would prefer to have more mediterranean type dishes or salads to choose from.

    The food was fantastic although a lot is left to be said about the service recieved. I had booked a table for Valentines day which was a set menu. On arrival we were supposed to receive a glass of prosecco. 25minutes after arriving and being sat down was this brought to us. We ordered our own drinks at the bar 15minutes after arriving as nobody attended our table to take a drinks order. We had our food order taken half an hour after arriving at the restaurant. Again after our desert we were asked whether we would like a coffee and we had asked to wait 5 minutes. 15minutes later i had gone to the bar to order the coffee as nobody had been around our table as we were the only ones left at the restaurant.

    I paid the bill at the bar and although this is a minor thing the menu had stated that you have chocolate fudge with your coffee. This is something we never had either.

    Overall i would rate the service we recieved a 1* - Very dissapointed and this clouded our overall opinion of the restaurant.

    We enjoyed an excellent family lunch at Arbennig,staff were friendly and efficient and the food was excellent.

    Delicious food - all of our dishes were cooked to a very high standard (sunday roast (beef); fish and chips; rose harissa chicken; cheese board; sticky toffee pudding), and the wine we chose (red 20) was also very nice. Great, prompt service from the helpful and friendly staff.

    If we would find anything to fault, it was that we thought the decor was a little clinical looking (the tables, plain white walls, etc), instead of being warm and inviting.

    Overall it was great, and we will come again! Thank you.

    First visit & we'll be back. Excellent meal & service on a very busy lunchtime. Hard to fault.

    Food was good but a couple of points to mention restaurant was cold, cost of set meal on website was £14.95 for 2 courses actual cost was £16.95.Asked 3 people for the bill still took 18 mins to arrive . When I got home l realised that I had been overcharged by £4 but it was to late to say anything which I blame myself for not checking in restaurant.

    Lovely place and excellent service.
    Starters were superb
    One main was returned as swimming in oil, and as a consequence not charged for.
    The other, lamb, was fantastic.
    Afters and drinks were very good too

    The fixed price lunch is always excellent. Can be noisy - wooden floors, glass and limited soft furnishings.
