Every visit to Fairlawns from before our wedding, on our wedding day, on our anniversary and the odd days we have visited since have been amazing. Yesterday was perfect. The atmosphere was wonderful, 3 different members of staff recognised us from the wedding 18 months on and it just felt so personal and made us feel like we were home. We had the 3 course Sunday lunch and coffee afterwards. It was a family meal to celebrate my promotion at work. The food was exquisite and tasted divine. I don’t know if it’s because we haven’t been for a few months but the food yesterday tasted the best ever. I just want to say our visit was faultless and we look forward to the next as always!
We had Sunday lunch for my father’s birthday and there was a large family group. Everyone said it was an enjoyable experience. The food and service were excellent. Thank you Atilla for making everything run smoothly.
We had The Oak Room, attention to detail was very apparent. The waiting staff was polite and courteous at all times. Food was of an excellent standard, particularly the steak which as cooked to perfection. The whole evening went off perfectly
Great friendly service
We had the most wonderful Spa weekend. The staff are fantastic and very attentive. It’s clear that they really want you to have an enjoyable stay. The food in Restaurant 178 was outstanding and all snacks, breakfast and lunch from the graze bar was lovely. Excellent value for money. We’ll definitely be back. Thank you
From greeting to departure we received fabulous service. Food and beverage excellent. All staff attending to us were kind and attentive but particular thanks to Becky who made us feel like nothing was to much trouble. I’ve had lots of afternoon teas but this ranks as one of the best
Visited for our 40th Wedding Anniversary, excellent meal, service and wine. Warmly welcomed by Attia and the team. Always made to feel at home whenever we visit. Looking forward to the next time.
Wonderful, staff were fantasic, nothing was too much trouble. Great value for money. I will 100% recommend.
Lovely Sunday lunch yesterday,hope to see you for lunch on Friday x 5 people 12pm my daughter was booking today.
My family and I have been coming to the The Fairlawns for years mostly for Sunday lunch as on this occasion when we were celebrating my father's 91st birthday.Even though it was some time since we'd been the Head Waiter remembered us and gave us a very warm welcome.The food was delicious and well presented and and the restaurant staff were very attentive .We will continue to visit The Fairlawns Restaurant for future family occasions
Lovely meal and very nice choice of wine suggested by the bar tender Holiday in a glass was his exact phrase. My daughter is lactose intolerant and they immediately spotted something she ordered that would have not suited her. Amazing food and a very relaxed atmosphere would definitely recommend to a friend. Staff could no do enough for you. Thank you for a very enjoyable evening which was to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary we will definitely be returning.
Delicious afternoon tea. Sandwiches were very tasty and lovely home cooked scones. There was a good selection of cakes which we took home to enjoy later. Thoroughly recommend
Attentive service and a delicious selection of sandwiches and cakes. Scones were freshly baked as served with clotted cream and jam. Will definitely be returning.
One of our favourite restaurants but would like more choice on main course
The food and service were fantastic, we couldn't fault it. The only comment we have is that the actual dining room is a bit basic and dated, it could do with a jazz up and the décor improving to match the quality of the food.
We have visited restaurant 178 several times and it has never failed to deliver excellent food and service I would recommend it to everyone.
We have been coming to Fairlawns for now many years and trurely the standard improves each time we dine here. The service, food and ambiance is what we expect, and does not disapoint.
We had a lovely lunch. It was my mother in laws bithday. The staff made a fuss of her. It was a delightful experience. Food was yummy. The atmosphere was relaxed. Perfect
Great food and friendly service - will be back!
The food and drink were/are superb. The Maître D was as usual excellent.. he is a real star of the restaurant. One slight niggle. more for my companions than me was disabled access. I am disabled and in need of a wheelchair/scooter.I was using a scooter. Although I was shown into the restaurant via a side door thus bypassing the main step into the restaurant, the side door did have a step which made scooter access very very difficult if not impossible. I have to say that I am not sure if this was the correct way shown to me by staff.
Lovely meal nice surroundings and very friendly members of staff in bar and restaurant.
We have been coming to Fairlawns for many, many years and it never disappoints. The standard of food is excellent as is the service. It is our place to go for special occasions, can thoroughly recommend
Had a lovely afternoon lunch served by Josh who was very friendly and helpful will definitely be visiting again .
We had the fixed price menu - 3 courses and my only criticism would be that there was not a fish option ie plaice or cod and the snow Bly chicken option was chicken Kiev. The food we did choose though for the main course ie Burger and cottage pie was excellent. We would like to visit regularly ie once a month for the lunch menu but found FP although excellent value was rather lacking in choice for regular visits.
