Martin was looking after us and he was very friendly, polite and was very helpful when I mentioned my intolerance. He knew it was my partners birthday and made it a special occasion for us. Much appreciated.

Had a shaky start with a delayed table and meat not cooked to what was asked BUT the owner had come over to apologise and eventually gave the entire meal at no cost due to the inconveniences caused. Very attentive and friendly staff and the service which in my opinion is what makes the experience was second to none. Food was amazing when it arrived, can’t praise them enough and I eat out almost every day of the week in high end restaurants. Will definitely be returning and would highly recommend! Thanks guys see you soon!

Fabulous lunch at Alec's. Food was first class. Really appreciated the attentive, yet low key service. The waiting staff are a credit to you, there ready and seeing to your every need without being asked, yet not in your face, a very tricky thing to get right, but they did. Will certainly be coming back. Also decor and surrounding were lovely. I like the fact there are no children under 12- good move.

Waited over an hour for our starters and mains. Prawn starter was no different to having frozen bartered prawns from a supermarket. Had to send a fillet steak back because it was over cooked and dry. All in all, extortionate pricing for the food that is served and the service wasn't at all good. The food used to be exceptional but now I'd never go back.

We arrived 15 minutes late but we were found a table in the corner. Although tucked out of the way we were really well looked after. The only criticism would be it’s pricey

Great service, we waited a little while for dessert so this was removed from our bill, cannot fault service and I expect the delay in dessert was a rare occurrence. Great atmosphere, food was delicious. I have already recommended several people!

Had smears all over my flute glass , and the scallops were very oily, they were sitting in a pool of oil , which was a shame cos they were cooked perfect , for your prices your glasses should be gleaming , oh and the waiters kept coming up while eating asking us have we were finished ???? Clearly not ! We were on a set menu , and I felt RUSHED !

We’ve visited Alec’s on a number of occasions & have always had excellent food & excellent service & we wasn’t disappointed this time, up until 10 o’clock when we’d already asked for the bill, so the staff knew we were ready to go but they still decided to open one of the large roof panels in the conservatory where we were seated. Needless to say it was very cold & we was made to feel like we was being asked to hurry up & leave. There was absolutely no need for that & as it was our mums 80th birthday celebration we never mentioned it at the time as we didn’t want to cause a fuss. We did, however, send an email the following day outlining our disappointment but as of yet we’ve still had no reply back, which we feel is a lack of consideration. On the whole our party of 10 had a nice evening spoilt by what seemed like your staff wanting to get away early.
