Just a couple of things we noticed: The wine list doesn't specify the country of origin, we tend to choose wines from particular countries/regions & most restaurants do now tend to include this information. Your website requires updating as you now open for breakfast but the times advertised do not incorporate this.

We booked a large group but there was a delay in some people's starters, by the time most people had eaten their starters a few were only just getting theirs. Nobody came to explain about the delay

Table wasn’t ready when we arrived but great staff more than made up for it. New menu doesn’t seem to have as much choice as old. new staff very friendly and helpful.

Have been to retreat on numerous occasions and always had a good experience so decided to celebrate my 30th birthday there with my family. Sadly we were disappointed. On arrival we were left for 40 minutes without even a drinks order. We then had to chase the order twice and we were told that they were struggling to take the cork out the wine as only a few people were trained to do it. After we had finished our meal we had to request that our table was cleared. The food was lovely it was just a shame we were let down on service on this occasion:

Both my friend & I had the lunchtime menu and had skewers but I do not class 3 small pieces of chicken or beef on a skewer as good value for money even though the food was tasty.

I thought for the price of the food and drinks the service wasnt very good. We were left waiting for drinks which only arrive with the starters (30mins after ordering them). I thought this was quite poor and expected drinks to have arrived well before the starters. The food was cooked to perfection and all of the table enjoyed their meals. Again the only aspect I would criticise was the service. We had to ask twice for our water jug to be filled up as the first request was ignored. Half of the table ordered deserts and half ordered coffees... the coffees only arrived after the deserts had been eaten despite ordering at the same time asking them to come together. Given the expensive prices for food I dont think the service is worth it. Which is a real shame as we could not fault anything with the food ordered.

New menu wasn't the easiest to choose from (although I know you can't please everyone). Significant price increase, more than I would have expected. Friendly and helpful staff

Regular user for many years, but have to say the recent facelift and menu revisions have lifted the Retreat to a new level. Looking forward to trying the breakfast offering at a weekend soon.

We went after the refurbishment as we had seen advertised 4 small dishes for £14 but this was not available so we tried the grill night specials which were very good value for money

Service was very poor from the moment we arrived. We had reserved a table. When we arrived, we were seated, given menus and then someone else took our drinks order. We then waited around 25 minutes for someone to take our order however it took for us to go and ask a member of staff to take our order. No one was interested.

Sesame chicken starter was overcooked and bland. Almost like it was cooked earlier and reheated in the fryer, it didn’t seem fresh. I was unimpressed by the steak, presentation was poor, peppercorn sauce was like instant out of a packet. The plate of food didn’t reflect the £26 we paid.

Food was ok. Cocktails were warm and poor quality. The staff were nice but the service was incredibly slow just to bring drinks. No one came to give us the bill so we had to ask the bar staff who the ln gave us the wrong bill.

Half of the items on the menu for the main course weren't available. Our server took our order incorrectly which resulted in us having to send items back and wait for replacements. Our main courses weren't served hot - lukewarm at best. Our server took our 6 year old daughter's order from the children's menu and then requested adult portions for her and when we made him aware of his mistake,he admitted he'd realised he'd got it wrong, and that he'd ensure our bill was adjusted accordingly. When the bill came, though, no such adjustment had been made and we were left to argue this out with another member of staff as our server seemed to have disappeared. Not a great experience. Very disappointing. It's a shame, though, as one bad experience may put us off coming back and we've been customers since you opened your doors.

Me and my partner went here yesterday Mon 30th Dec. We had been to venue numerous times normally always at peak times as well. When we arrived it was nice and quiet we had a quick drink at the bar. After we get sat our table that’s where the night went downhill. It took 25 mins for any staff to acknowledge us finally when a staff member came over to serve us I asked for the lamb then he said that there wasn’t any lamb or chicken available on the menu. Would of been nice to know as we sat at the table instead when ordering our food. For the place which we do like and been a fair few times the service was absolute awful and no offence all the staff looked young and considering it wasn’t that busy it has thought would we go somewhere else in the future. Don’t get me wrong the food was spot on when we ate it all was upsetting was the service throughout the night.
