    From arrival through to departure I could not fault the service. We were never rushed or left without attention. Having dined around the area I would say the food whilst more than adequate did not match the quality I have experienced elsewhere and therefore I would struggle to recommend a visit based on the food. There was also a delay in the presentation of the food with a noticeable gap between my two guests and my own dinner arriving to table.

    Reserved a table online for Sunday evening. Menu given out was a Sunday lunch menu and not the al a carte dinner menu I was expecting. Food was very good and well presented. Speed of service was good and the staff were good but had to request drinks.

    Lovely location and food but we had to wait too long for the food to arrive at the table so overall it took two hours to have lunch

    The food, as always, was fantastic. In the local area, if you want to eat out for lunch, most places only offer "traditional pub classics" but Lanes gives you a real up-market alternative. We had a 3 course meal for two and loved all three courses, however we both agreed that probably for us the weakest course was the main (Moroccan Chicken). Although a personal preference, would have liked slightly less meat (the portion was actually nice and generous) and in it place some vegetables to add a bit more colour and interest to the dish. That aside the food was genuinely wonderful (particularly the apricot bread and butter pudding for desert). The drinks, as always, were a little on the pricey side - you do need to take this into account when dining at Lanes. The ambiance was friendly and relaxing as always, though we did have a couple of minor observations, Firstly the wall decorations interestingly integrated within them some small bottles and jars with flowers in them. Unfortunately some of the water in these bottles had gone green, which was slightly off-putting and gives a misleadingly poor impression of hygiene. Also, the piped music in the restaurant, while relaxing, is reminiscent of "elevator music". Personally I think the mood music should be reviewed and updated.
