Was a little short of time and I mentioned this to the waiter. The drinks and food arrived quickly allowing me to relax and enjoy my lunch. Was given a very nice table although I was only one person. Will definitely return

Very impressed that a gluten free menu was supplied. Food was of an excellent standard. There was some confusion over my booking but it was sorted out immediately.

Service was very poor and slow, food took 40 minutes to come and coffees took far too long also. Ordered more coffees before meal but ended up cancelling them as hadn’t arrived by the time we had finished our breakfast.

This would have been 5 stars across the board but was let down by being told at time of ordering that there was no lobster left( at 1800 on a Saturday?) so had pasta Olivia. To my annoyance after finishing my dessert 2 hours later the next table were served lobster ! Called server over to ask why he had told me there was no lobster 2 hours earlier.

Booking and ordering for sixteen people is never going to easy. The courteous staff were not fazed with either even though eight of our party were under sixteen years old. Everyone agreed the food was superb and the surprise birthday cake was delicious . The ambience was further enhanced by the magnificent surroundings. Thanks to you all.
