Spectators – great food, tasty brews and awesome views!
Great with the kids. Very friendly.
First visit and we were impressed with the quality of the food and the service, everyone had a smile on their face.
Food average, quite bland. Looked appealing but lacked flavour on Carnivores pizza and Tacos. Service also average and really non interactive as you have to go to bar and order, waitress/barmaid "busy" and not really interested. Told us that we are NOT meant to order individually but booking was for 4 people!.?
Really disappointed. Book a table here before attending a show across at Horncastle Arena. I ordered the ribeye steak, when it arrived it looked like rump steak and was that chewy I was unable to eat it. Had to return the meal. We decided to go to Spectators as it was handy to our show venue and the reviews seemed like it would provide a good meal. That wasn’t the case and put a black spot on an otherwise pleasant evening.
Great food and service
Great spot for Father’s Day dinner. Good food and lovely staff! Thanks so much for the rugby tickets. Will definitely be back.
everything AWESOME thanks Alex and Steph
Another great night at spectators
Disappointed with the food. It appear to be left over food from previous night. The only thing that was fresh was the chips and onion rings.
Absolutely brilliant. Good staff, great food, nice relaxing atmosphere. Would visit again.
Great relaxed family atmosphere. Lovely meals cooked to perfection. Very welcoming to children. Utilities areas clean. Helpful staff with positive attitude. True value for money. Well done! Thanks so much!
Wow what a super place for pre show lunch and drinks with kids, kids space was superb, the balls to kick around outside were brilliant every staff member was helpful and happy, food was served promptly and top notch , will definitely be back !
We were too stonkered to order deserts. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Meals didn't take long to arrive at our table. Friendly staff :)
We went to Spectator's Bar on First Table and couldn't believe what value for money the meals were. We ordered the 1kg Ribs and they were amazing and so big that we took half home in a doggy bag. The staff were super friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be returning to Spectators Bar for another meal.
Just a shame that you don't actually come to tables and take food orders, otherwise food was great value.
Great meal thank you we will be back
Food and service were great. Staff was really friendly and helpful. The potion of the food was huge and yummy. Highly recommended.
Excellent service and food. Will be back!
Excellent food and service. Staff were super friendly and as we were dining with our 4 year old, they bought out colouring pencils and something for him to colour in, which was great while waiting for our meals which didn’t take very long. Definitely dine there again.
A wonderful dining experience.
Very enjoyable evening. Beer battered cod was great. The service of the waitress we had was delightful as were the cider cocktails
Really nice Pizza's and great service
Food was very good, service was friendly. Place was quiet until my kids turned up! Will visit again.
Nice food. Good service. Dessert of frangipani and apricot tart was the highlight.
