    This was the third time we have eaten at Arbennig in the last few months, lunch twice as this one was plus an evening birthday celebration. Each time the food has been absolutely excellent as was the service. The 2/3 course lunch menu is very good value with a good range of options and whilst as a couple we are normally reluctant to make restaurant recommendations we have no hesitation in spreading the word to anyone who likes good food to give this place a try, you will not regret it.

    Food was lovely. But what made the evening better was the amazing staff. Not to serious, had a smile, but service was excellent.

    Lovely restaurant. Beautifully decorated with guest paintings. Ambient lighting. Lovely windows allowing privacy but letting natural light through. Couerteous staff who smiled! Food was amazing in taste and presentation with just enough time left in between courses. Good wine selection. Altogether a wonderful experience!

    This was our first time at this restuarant (as it is now) and quite simply we had a fantastic evening. We were celebrating a belated mothers day meal and Arbennig did not disappoint. From start to finish the service was faultless and the food nothing short of perfect. You always know its going to be a great meal when you struggle to make a decision and you genuinely want to eat everything on the menu. Cocktails at the end were also fantastic. Would highly recommend this place to anyone and will definitely be returning. A 10/10 night for all concerned.

    Enjoyed the meal had stone bass, do think it would have been nicer with something other than the tomato base. Really lovely waitress who was very knowledgable re menu. Wll return again
