Attended for bottomless gin brunch, staff quickly attended to us and our glasses where never empty for long. Lovely food off menu and great friendly atmosphere too.

This is our 4th year doing grand national with NYL, each year we have a lovely day however I wish it could be more about the races. The volume on big screen is kept really low until we requested it to be turned up, and the position of big screen is always caught in the light from big windows so poor viewing. You said there would racing posts and there was none, these are just small complaints as The food was delicious, drinks were good and the service we had was fabulous from the most gorgeous and helpful staff. Please just make it more about the racing, it could be a huge day for the business.

We were deeply disappointed by our Mother’s Day experience. Having had an outstanding meal at NYL in January I couldn’t wait to return but the food was substandard- burnt puddings served with a long delay and had to be sent back, roast dinner was dry and lacking in flavour, and with an already limited menu from the a la carte, we were told some options were in short supply. Drinks orders were very slow, some forgotten which meant we focused more on catching the attention of staff than spending time together as a family. From a group of 8 the overall response was one of extreme disappointment. We fed this back to staff and our meal was discounted and we were told that with it being Mother’s Day they were busy. However, the restaurant was in no way full and from our point of view, the fact that it’s Mother’s Day is more of a reason to pull out all the stops and get the food and service right. This place has the capability of being brilliant- I hope they sort it out.

A party of 7 of us thoroughly enjoyed the Afternoon Tea at NYL; the food was sublime, the service excellent- attentive and friendly, but not overbearing. I really enjoyed well put together afternoon tea- sandwiches, scones and sweet treats, none of which let the experience down. One of the top afternoon teas I have ever had, and good value for money too. The restaurant itself had a lovely relaxed atmosphere, within a bright and open space with a grand but comfortable setting. Even the music was well matched! Will be returning to sample to cocktail masterclass as we were all all-round impressed. Thank you!

Only one criticism my wife had the fillet steak with bernaise sauce... it was bland and cold I realise it can’t be heated up because it’s an egg based sauce ... so maybe if another sauce was available along side the peppercorn eg Diane or blue cheese ... everything else about the meal was lovely
