    Booked for Christmas Eve dinner with bookatabe & upon arrival at Vardons we were notified that there was no booking for us at 5pm as their restaurant only opens at 6 & our booking was somehow booked for afternoon tea. This is something bookatable needs to amend. If it wasn't for the amazing staff at Vardons, despite it being Christmas Eve & their restaurant didn't open until 6, Oliver the manager made sure we were accommodated promptly. They let us dine in their restaurant 30 minutes before it opened & their hospitality was impeccable. The food was simply delicious & was one of the nicest meals I've had in a long time.
    I would recommend Vardons to anyone & we will of course be visiting again.
    Thank you once again!!!

    Staff were very friendly and welcoming, the restaurant was also warm and welcoming and to top it off the food did not disappoint, my pate starter was good, although the salmon roulade that my daughter ordered looked and tasted fantastic, the main courses were also great, the duck was cooked to perfection..., a nice place to go for a special night out or just a quiet meal for two. We will continue to go back here

    My first experience of dining at Vardons was excellent the services was of a high quality, as for the dining area it was a higher class than I had been to before some very bold features in the beams and high ceilings with a modern décor twist but still that element of class.

    after sitting in the lobby and having a few drinks we was escorted to the table, drinks taken to the table by our waiter and we was seated. we opted for the 3 course meal at £25 this involved a starter main and desert. I opted for the fillet steak which was cooked medium and when came out was cooked to perfection and was a high quality piece of fillet.

    the starter main and desert came all in good time, it was very professionally set up !

    food quality for me was 10/10
    waiter service was 10/10
    drinks/hot beverages 6/10 ( reason being the prices was almost as expensive as the meal & the quality and selection wasn't very good)

    the only downside to the night was that when we sat in the lounge area and had coffees I felt the waiter service was more orientated on the customer that had just been seated I had to ask for my bill 3 times and still didn't receive so decided to get up and wait beside the till until someone noticed I was waiting to pay

    I did tip due to the fact the meal was of good quality and the waiter couldn't do enough

    overall rating for a first time experience was 10/10 but would only visit on special occasions

    Having dined here on a few occasions I was confident the food and service would be of an excellent standard and was not disappointed. Although rather quiet for a Friday lunchtime this did not spoil the experience and my dining companions were equally impressed on this their first visit.
