A customer of many years. Experience spoiled by insistence from staff to keep plastic window curtains closed, even though it was hot and stuffy, because of your revolting neighbours. Probably won't be back

Unfortunately we cancelled our booking soon after arrival as the restaurant was deafening, and not the sort of atmosphere we had been looking forward to, which was very disappointing. Perhaps it would have been better on a brighter day, when the restaurant would be open on to the lawns. I had to put ratings on food, service and value for money, but obviously am not in a position to rate them, so have rated average.

When we arrived to be honest we weren’t welcomed very warmly. Didn’t feel welcome and I was asking questions regarding the lunch and felt as tho the waitress just wanted us to get out of her way. But then we had Zac as our waiter and he was absolutely amazing. Sooo attentive happy and lovely. He dealt with us so politely and made the day fun and lovely. Food was amazing such great value for money. It was quite hot inside however. But overall amazing. So sad the bean bags outside are gone!

We had a fantastic time, thank you. The only downside was our waitress seemed very rushed off her feet, and was also serving out the front of the restaurant, so sometimes it was hard to get her attention. Also she was taking names for the tabs, but there was no communication of that to the girl on the till, so it was a bit messy when it came to payment. But apart from that the food was delicious and it was great having a room all to ourselves! Thank you

Beautiful place for a lunch. The customer service was top notch and our waiter was absolutely perfect! Very friendly and attentive to our needs. The food was delicious however the only minor gripe i would say would be the portion sizes could be a little bigger but other than that we had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend to others.

Our Italian female waitress was amazing!! Very attentive and made sure everyone was happy & well fed. Loved the food and wine. Wish we could have lay out on the lawn with a glass of wine though!

Had an excellent visit and your staff were very accommodating. The only negative was that you don't allow people to take their left overs home so we had to throw away more than half of our food. Our team had eaten a bit too much on the ride over which meant entire plates of food, trays of salmon went straight into the bin untouched which was a real pity as your good was delicious.

None of our party of 10 had been to Cable Bay before and we all had an amazing time. Fantastic food. A bit disappointing that we weren't able to sit outside due to licence restrictions as it was a sunny day. Can't wait to come back.

Hi service was very polite and attentive. Drink size very generous. Pizza was amazingly good. Thanks for the special anniversary touch on our desert however we did ask and were told no to a special desert request. A little disappointing on that note. Portion size on the lamb was entree size not a main. As we were sharing it as a main meal it wasn't enough lunch. Thanks for having us for our tenth wedding anniversary.

Gorgeous venue and we had a wonderful table. The food was lovely but expensive for what you got. The restaurant was very busy on the day we were there and the staff did a great job, but we were not offered coffee or desert and had to repetitively ask for more wine and water.

Woodfired pizza & salads were delicious. Great service too. Unfortunately we came while no public access was allowed on the lawn but the view was still amazing.
