An excellent boxing day lunch with family enjoyed in Deacons. Food was delicious - view into Lytham square was lovely on Boxing day and the staff as always very pleasant and service excellent. Thanks to Leigh who every time we go in goes out of his way to be accommodating. Thank you

The portion sizes were small. Children’s cookies and ice cream was very small. The staff should smile a bit more

Seemed very chaotic where staff were concerned. Chef and Male member of staff arguing on the stairs at one point when I went to the loo 50 mins wait for food isn’t great when you have two hours to eat and leave Ceasar salad - didn’t come with the chicken asked for - dry - tasteless. Bit chunks of parmasan instead of shavings Beef sandwich - very dry. As if been constantly re heated. Children’s desert cookie and ice cream - not age appropriate. He even said. - god I should of ordered the adult one - smallest kids desert I’ve ever seen Plates left for 15 mins. Had to ask to be cleared Lovely place thought and setting. Shame I won’t go again.

9 of us dined from the Christmas menu - excellent service and the food was delicious! The staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the huge gin selection, making great recommendations. Loved the imaginative vegetarian options, particularly the hen’s egg. The carnivores raved about the lamb too! Great venue!

Booked a table at 7.15pm on Christmas Eve and has requested a booth if possible. On arrival we were told that a booth would be free in about 15mins if we’d like to wait for it, we agreed we would and got a drink from the bar. It was obviously busy and there was nowhere to sit whilst we had a drink, but that was fine as we knew it would be packed. After waiting for almost 40 minutes, we saw a party who arrived after us be seated at the vacant booth we thought would be ours. When we queried this with the manager he said it was due to the parties size. After almost an hour we were finally seated. We were so hungry by this time. The manager did kindly offer us a free round of drinks to compensate for our wait, which was appreciated. It took a little while for our order to be taken, but the food arrived in a reasonable amount of time. One issue with a drink order being wrong, but it was quickly rectified. Unfortunately, due to the long delay, it then meant we missed our family engagement, as we were too late, which was frustrating. We completely accept that it will be busy everywhere on Christmas Eve, but do feel that more time should be allowed for bookings as the target of 90mins to turn tables round obviously wasn’t realistic.

Staff were helpful and polite. Food was excellent and alterations/additions were easily accommodated. Service was perhaps slower than ideal but given how full the restaurant was and the time of year it would be unfair to penalise!

Very disappointing and shan't be visiting again unless The Deacon ups its game. Needs to decide if it is a restaurant or pub serving bar meals as unable to maintain high standards as it is.
