yet again another wonderful lunch time meal
Delicious food, good choice on menu. Well presented. Courteous and friendly staff.
Amazing food, great experience. Would highly recommend!
Food as always was excellent but I’m sorry to have to say that the service was poor on this occasion. Three of the waiting staff were messing around, resulting in food being taken to the wrong tables on more than one occasion, our waiter had poor knowledge of the menu (I asked if the mash with the pork dish had the black pudding mixed in with it and was told it did -but it was separate, and as I don’t like black pudding this was important for me). Our dinner plates were left in front of us for a good 10 minutes We had coffees delivered and no teas, had to ask after about 10 minutes for cream and sugar which then took another 5 minutes to arrive, by which time the coffee was lukewarm , and finally, our teaspoons were removed from our saucers before we had evenfinished our drinks, which we found really strange! The restaurant wasn’t full so I’m not really sure what the problem was. This was the first time I’ve had any issues-service and food have always been excellent on my previous visits
We had an excellent meal. Comments received from other members of our group were that it was the best meal yet. We always feel confident of a good meal on every visit.
A very good experience as always! Made for a lovely evening.
As always a very enjoyable meal nothing too much trouble for the staff who are always efficient and friendly.See you again soon.
Menu and service can vary from visit to visit but overall experience never fails to please,
Excellent fish and chips!
Excellent Spanish tapas night, food was tasty, service was good. Overall a great atmosphere
We really enjoy coming for lunch, the food is always delicious and the service good
As usual the service was great and the food superb
the people that gyros said it was cold, but otherwise great atmosphere and services as usual
My wife and I have often frequented the Taste Restaurant and have never been disappointed. Thursday 4th April was no different my party and I all had a wonderful evening, All of the students were very attentive, the food was of a very high standard, fantastic and memorable evening. I thank you P J Buckby
Great food and service at very good prices. Always enjoy coming here and would definitely recommend.
I always find the staff so friendly, it is a very professional place. it is nice to see the students when they first attend their courses and then when they're due to complete. I have never had a bad experience at this venue and always had amazing food and service from all staff across the restaurant.
Excellent food. We always say best meal yet, but we have said that for the past 11 years. Excellent service and great dining room. Highly recommend to everyone.
I would like to say that the chocolate brownie dessert we had yesterday was exceptional
Great food and service with a lovely atmosphere!
All except one really enjoyed our meals. I think the one exception was due to the wrong food choice being made.
Very nicely presented and tasty food, and the service was everything as you would expect in a professional establishment. Looking forward to our next meal with you
Gluten free menu and it was excellent food for all of our party. Thank you
As in all previous years last night's event was the highpoint of our year so far. Without exception, all comments and conversations to my knowledge were affirmative and positive; the meals were as chosen, superbly presented and delicious. In the context of the coeliac condition, it is a great thing to be able to rely totally on meals being free of gluten. Needless to say we have booked again for next year.
Thanks to all staff for making my birthday extra special, we all had a great time and enjoyed the meal. Thanks too for making the cake - lovely!
Went as a group of 6, had a lovely time, food was beautifully presented, tasty and exceeded expectations. Our waiter was very attentive, all staff very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend, and looking forward to dining here again.
