Well overpriced for a "local amenity". That said what I had was tasty

First visit to the Box and decided to make it a treat by having lunch as well. I would recommend highly. As you can see from the rating the usual things were excellent but in these strange times the covid precautions were also first class making us feel very comfortable and safe. Will definitely be returning as soon as we are allowed.

I really enjoyed the environment and the atmosphere created within the kitchen. I felt Covid safe having table service. It was wonderful to feel part of the exhibition with the ship figureheads and a real talking point. The furniture is comfortable and stylish, even the cutlery had quality. I couldn't decide what to choose on the menu and will visit again to try other dishes. The idea of evening service is something I will look forward to once the Lockdown restrictions are lifted. Congratulations.

It is a great location, the service was efficient, friendly and interested. The only concern I had was I thought with isolating that the tables were a little close together, at least where we were sat.

Thank you for the feedback Stephen and so pleased to hear you enjoyed the food and experience. I am sorry to hear you thought the tables were too close and we are definitely ensuring that these are spaced 1 metre apart following government guidelines. I will make sure that this is continuously reviewed to ensure the 1 metre is adhered to.

The chairs were a little low to eat at the table. A cloak room or somewhere to hang wet jackets would be useful

Unfortunately our mains turned up and we had to tell the waitress that we hadn’t yet had our starters which we subsequently decided not to have. Food did not meet our expectations and one of our party had a cinnamon bun for dessert which was very dry and doughy. Our waitress was very apologetic and admitted that she had made a mistake with our order but on the whole a very disappointing experience.

Garlic bread was underwhelming, didn’t have any garlic taste and was slightly too crispy. Beans on the kids meals were like like mush but the burger was lovely and the fish and chips was also nice.
