    A special evening was planned for my wife and I at Galvins @ Centurion. Impressive arrival with big bold gates and a short drive to a modern building that has been tastefully designed.
    We were greater at the door and invited to sit by the fire for some drinks, this we did, lovely.
    45 minutes later and some 25 minutes after our booking the waiter appeared with no apology for the delay and took us to our table.
    The dining room is simply furnished in a casual elegance styling, relaxed and elegant.
    We duly ordered and the starters arrived, risotto and a terrine, simply delightful.
    This was shaping to be a great night, mains then arrived, pheasant and bream. The bream was light and beautifully cooked and the pheasant looked inviting. As I began to enjoy the pheasant I spotted a hair, short, thick and black, then another! I called the waiter over and quietly pointed out the hairs, not wishing to make a fuss or create a scene in front of their other diners. The waiter acknowledged the hairs and offered to have another dish prepared, this I accepted. They did however leave my wife eating hers and I felt it would have been better to replace both dishes so we would be eating together. The replacement dish arrived in due course and it was delicious.
    We finished our deserts and took coffees in the lounge area.
    All in all lovely food in lovely surroundings, just a little disappointing that at no time did I receive an apology for the hairs in my dinner or no attempt to in some way compensate me by say removing the 12.5% service or not charging for the main course. This would have represented excellent customer service.

    Food was average, I was served the wrong drink, was refused the set menu because it was after 7pm, a honest mistake made by the waiter, we then received a bill for over £100, which was rectified once I complained to the manager

    The food was excellent but there was about a 25 minute gap between mains and desserts - it was however extremely busy. Staff were very friendly and I liked the fact that one member of staff brought brought the food on a tray whilst another served it. The interior and exterior of the building are very pleasant but it was easy to miss the entrance at night - which I did although I had been there before. A couple of lamp posts on the road at the entrance might assist.

    Beautiful surroundings and a lovely food. Would gladly frequent this place. Only one comment on the limited choices for the set menu, expanding it would help.

    Went mid week lunchtime. Rather quiet, but the setting is lovely. Food was beautifully cooked and service perfect, attentive, friendly but not too intrusive. 3 course special is very good value indeed.

    Absolutely the best food.
    Staff very attentive and welcoming.
    We will be back for Sunday lunch very soon.
