Good food and service. Lovely bar and atmosphere only comment would be to possibly offer a daily special and vary the menu seasonally

We had a wonderful meal at St Villa. We took my father in law out to celebrate his 60th birthday and we sat in one of their outside domes, which was a lovely dining experience even though the weather was scorching! Only thing that let it down was the lack of atmosphere, for a Sunday afternoon the restaurant was dead! I’m not sure if it’s too out of town but they need to get the word out more as it really is a lovely restaurant and they do have a niche over others! Food is quite pricey but the quality is definitely there, it was delicious.

We attended St Villa for a work dinner. Food was very good, well prepared and timing was great (they were flexible on when we started then managed to serve very promptly).We could not fault the service at St Villa. Generally very warm, friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere.

Hair was found in 2 of our main courses and although we were given a discount off the bill the staff did not seem to feel the need to apologise and actually came across really annoyed. Also we ordered a gin drink which we asked if it was on the 2 for 1 cocktail offer and the waiter said he thought so, he came back with the drink and informed us it wasn't. It would have been better if he had checked we still wanted it if it wasn't part of the offer allowing us to choose an alternative. The service needs some work!

Party of 8 accommodated in the igloo very comfortably. Dispute being a busy night service was prompt and friendly. We didn't feel rushed and all had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The only slight negative is that it is quite expensive, however the food is first class and delicious!

Beautiful food, perfect service, the staff were all very friendly and helpful. We had a booking for 14 people for a work meal so we pre ordered from the set menu. We only ended up with 8 of us there but they got everything correct from our pre order, nothing was missing and everyone loved their food. Would highly recommend and we’ll certainly be back. Thank you very much for a fantastic meal and a lovely evening.

With regards to my Father's day dinner on the 16th June. I have to bring to your attention at how disappointed we were with our meal. I have decided to contact you directly then via TripAdviser and other social media sites. Firstly, I have to say the staff you employ are impeccable and friendly; an asset to your business. This booking was made 2 months ago and my wife went to a lot of effort doing this as I have never been to St. Villa and this was a surprise meal and we have only heard good things about it. The service was slow and lack lustre. To cut a long story short, we ordered 2 lambs (one medium, one medium rare), a chicken, 2 steaks, 1 burger, mussels starter as a main. and a beef roast dinner. The burger, ribeye and fillet were fine. The sauce for the chicken was asked to be on the side, but wasn’t. The two lambs came cooked the same, when I asked which one was medium I was told they were both medium rare. Not wanting to make a scene I didn’t say anything, but my lamb was VERY UNDER. Most of the mussels were unopened and had to be sent back. By the time i have eaten my lamb the sides were still outstanding and my wife still had not received her meal. The bill came to £345.00 and was a terrible disappointment as I was so excited about coming to your restaurant. I want this complaint to be a constructive piece of criticism, but if anyone asks me about St. Villa I can not recommend them coming to you. I look forward to hearing for you. Regards. Elliot Lanceman - I did send this direct via your website, but have not hear back.

Another really lovely evening at St Villa. This was a special occasion and so we booked a pod. It was really cosy and a real treat.
