    The service was great, the quantity of the food was great, however I feel, the size of the meat portion in the roast for the price was not value for money.

    Was quite disappointed that the only option was a Sunday roast when I attended yesterday. No option for anything different. If I would have known this prior then we certainly would have gone elsewhere. Food was served quickly but wasn’t the nicest roast I’ve had for the price we paid.

    We had the bottomless Bellini and roast dinner. From the moment we arrived, staff were so friendly and attentive, they were quick to top up drinks and recommend items from the menu. Food was first class. Have been several times and undoubtedly will visit again.

    The overall night was a shambles. We were sitting at our table for over an hour before we even received our starter of Baked Camembert. By the time we had received and finished our mains we were unable to order desserts due to closing (we arrived at the venue at 7pm)! Even receiving a menu took over half an hour. The only thing from the whole night we didn't have to ask for multiple times was our first drinks on the Terrace Garden. Very disappointing in the service, food was OK but not worth the wait. Will not be coming back here again.

    As much as we enjoyed our food and drinks, the evening was spoiled by the mistake with our booking. We booked online for a meal at 7:30 but were told it came through as drinks only and we had to sit in the bar. After an hour's wait we had a table in the restaurant but by the time our food arrived, we had less than 35 minutes to eat our food, pay the bill and leave. We were rushed by staff (who were only abiding by rules, but we felt the whole night was ruined from a mistake the booking system made, not our fault. Most of the staff were very apologetic and like I said, the food was great!

    Dinner on Friday night. Friendly service, good wine list, good atmosphere. We both had steaks which were nice. Our booking wasn’t on their system but they had a free table so it wasn’t a probkem. We had Sunday lunch here a couple of weeks ago and it was excellent.

    Very disappointed. Sandwich bread was stale and cakes were obviously refrozen. Service was slow although not busy, at one stage as part of the two hour time limit it took 45 minutes to get a refill. We would not come back.

    The best family meal out we've had in ages, amazing food and great service. So much flavour in everything we ate, the tastiest fillet steak cooked to perfection and the chips on the side were by no means an after thought, they had loads of flavour too. All of our meals were so tasty, we all left very happy with very full tummies!
