We dined with the Sandersons, Mr and Mrs ford and unfortunately we do not have a great meal. We have fined with you before and had a good experience but this time was not good! Our crispy squid starter was not crispy and the fish sauce that accompanied it was so foul smelling it put us all off of outlet food! The pork with noodles was very disappointing. Both myself and my husband chose this and although the pork was nice the noodles tasted of nothing, very bland. Finally The lemon cheesecake had an awful texture, very dry. We have been left very disappointed.

We used to love Cen but the standards have dropped alarmingly. To start we both ordered the Thai Fishcakes. These were TOUGH, they must have been kept for days and warmed through repeatedly. My wife then ordered the Duck. This was almost impossible to cut even with a steak knife and also difficult to chew. A waste of ingredients and therefore money.. Puddings were fine and the service was excellent but we won't go again.. I would welcome feedback on m,y comments..

We were very Disappointed with the main courses. They lacked flavour, of that compare to a typical dish and overpriced. However the starters that we had were fantastic

The food was beautiful for all six of us the one problem we had was for one in our party had their rice delivered to the table just when they was finishing their meal. Both my self and my wife gave our son in law some of our rice I can understand if we had not told the waitress but we told her straight away that we was short of rice and was told it would be straight out and to try and catch there eye again was near impossible to let them know we had still not received the rice.

What an absolutely gorgeous meal I had at the PAD restaurant. I didnt catch her name but I was served by a lovely blonde lady with glasses and she recommended the Chococlate bar dessert for me which was awesome. The food was amazing, I had the Laksa. Scallops were the best I've had, prawns were lovely and the broth was tasty but a little too hot for me. (I have to have it mild but not because I want to :( ). They still made arrangements to make it milder for me which was lovely. My partner had the steak which was like cutting butter, beautifully cooked and an amazing flavour. The cocktails we had were amazing, a tad expensive I felt but were beautifully made. Wish I'd eaten here on our first night too! Thank you to the service girls who made our night that much more special and to the talented chefs who made brilliant meals. We *will* be back. We stayed at celtic manor last year for my partners birthday and again this year. I'll aim to be back next Jan but I hope I can swing a visit sooner. I've told everyone who'll listen how nice it was! Thank you!

Considering the excellent review I am giving you following our recent visit, it may seem petty to add one complaint to add to the mix, but I think it is right and fair that I report one issue that may seem unfair to others. My issue is with the background music which we found to be very monotonous and the only complaint that we had on an otherwise brilliant culinary experience. Thank you so very much. (But please change the music.)

The restaurant had a pleasant atmosphere and the staff were friendly. My husband was really pleased with his food but as a vegetarian I wasn't as impressed. We were given prawn crackers after ordering, I explained that as a vegetarian I could not eat them and the waiter said he would get me an alternative. This did not arrive. After I asked he shortly returned with some deep fried pastry and dip which was not great. I ordered the broccoli noddle main from the vegan menu. It was a tasty dish, but did not contain any broccoli. This left me feeling that less care and attention was given to the vegetarian and vegan food options compared to that of the meat eaters, which is disappointing.

Cosy place, service was good. The waiter was very knowledgeable & gave great advice on dishes and drink. The waiter was dressed smartly with beautiful smile and great teeth. What I would suggest is possibly reducing the size of the Thai curry smaller a the starters were big also. All in all great food and service would come again.

Slightly disappointed in the main meal. The duck starter was very good. The main meal, Thai green chicken curry, the portion size was overwhelming, severed in an inappropriate dish which made it difficult to eat. The prawn and scallops was also disappointing with only 2 scallops and 3 prawns. The rest of the dish was bland. The chocolate bar dessert was also disappointing, very difficult to break open and the peanut brittle was more like frozen peanuts thrown on a plate!!

Food was cold on arrival (main course) Thai prawn curry had no spice to it and tasted of pure milk even after being told it was a spicy dish. Very disappointed! Starters of soup and dessert cheesecake was very good. Think about the danger of the heater the heat coming off it and the warmth on the metal is extremely dangerous.

Awful service worst I’ve ever experienced. food is tasteless and so overpriced. Luckily the manager who was very good gave us a good discount off the bill. I wouldn’t recommend.

The food was outstanding! But the wait was too long. We hadn’t our booking as the first sitting on Xmas eve at 18:30 and waited about an hour before the food came. With small children this meant I had to leave the dinner halfway and not have desert as they became too restless. Also the Sake was cold, it’s meant to be warm. But again the food was outstanding!

What an amazing experience! The food was great, but the atmosphere and effort put in by the staff was incredible. Nothing was too much trouble and the guy who dressed up as the mad hatter was brilliant! The craft session for the kids afterwards was also a really nice touch - nice to see how much effort was put in, i will definitely be booking that again next Christmas if it’s available - well worth the money - the kids LOVED it! Thanks all 😊
