We booked the Doyen for Sunday lunch. It transpired that there was a typo on the menu and we did not receive what we ordered. We were expecting a Sunday roast with red wine sauce but the food arrived with mushroom sauce! Neither of us like mushrooms and we would not have ordered the option if we had known. The quality of the meal we received was also very poor. The mash potato was cold and the roast potatoes were not cooked through. The server was very apologetic and offered not to charge for dessert but when the bill arrived they charged us for the dessert and offered a small discount which was less than the cost of the desserts! It was all a little chaotic and expensive for a poorly cooked meal that we did not order.

Fantastic service from Barry. He was really attentive and couldn't have been more helpful. Venue was just perfect and kids play area was an excellent way to keep the kids entertained! Definitely recommend the Doyen for private parties

Very disappointed in the service in Morso. Table wasn’t ready when we arrived, once we were sat down we had to wait 25minutes for the menus, once we got the menu’s a member of our party had to ask for someone to take the food and drink order. No one came near our table to ask how everything was all night, no server came back to get a further drinks orders from our table either. Food was lovely however getting to that point was difficult.

Had a really good time. Great stuff for the kids. The guys doing the kites were ace. (much better entertainment that anywhere else we've been to). Only thing that stops everything being 5Star is that i think some of the meals were too salty. So, less salt next time and it 100%.

Large work party for Christmas lunch. Service was excellent, food was hot, delicious and plentiful. Nothing was too much trouble, no request too small to fulfil. Philip, the manager was beyond helpful and everything went seamlessly. Would certainly both recommend and return

3 of us had £22.00 steaks and thought there could have been a few mushrooms and onionrings to fill out the plate , the burger and fries where no better than Eddie Rockets for half the price.

Thank you to all staff who attended to our group yesterday. We were all extremely impressed with all of the staff, they were friendly, courteous and very professional. The food was lovely and helpings very generous. The little party bags for the children were very impressive and most welcome. The room we had exclusive use of for our party of 30 was well presented and was warm cosy and very welcoming. Thank you to everyone concerned.
