We have always had a wonderful experience at The Seafood Restaurant in past years when we have supported their charity lunches, however this year was disappointing. Reception staff were sullen and not welcoming. Waiting staff were efficient, pleasant and altogether delightful. The food was okay but I think when you go to Rick Steins you expect more than ‘okay’. I had soup which was good. The seafood gratin was short on seafood and needed some vegetables to offset it. My bread and butter pudding was mushy with no substance to it.

We came to one of your Charity lunches - it was wonderful in every way! The spicy fish soup was memorable and it was good to see the potato curry with haddock and egg still on your menu after many years. That was one of the first dishes I ever had at The Seafood. Thank you.

What I like about your restaurants is that your staff have a real passion for working there. They are incredibly proud to work here and it applies to everyone. In my experience this is somewhat unique and it makes an enormous difference to the customer experience

So disappointed. Have been eating at the Seafood for years and this was without doubt the worst meal I’ve had not only there but anywhere. I like to choose something i dont eat at home so went for the pasta with cavolo nero cabbage. It was so drenched in oil i couldnt eat it. I then chose the hake with puy lentils and red wine sauce. The hake was so over cooked it was dry, the lentils were hard and unfortunately the waitress took away the jug of sauce after serving a dribble which might have helped it go down. The saving grace was the apple tart tatan, delicious, superb. I was looking forward to the petti fores served with the coffee but they've been axed from the charity lunches in an effort to save costs i presume. That's taken the edge of the meal being something special. Had to go home and have something to eat! I have previously booked to return next week with family. At least i shall know what to and what not to order, definitely have the fish pie, which you can order in any pub in town, lets hope it’s something special.

Excellent food and service, far better than the previous two years of visiting. The noise level however is very high due to the acoustics of the venue plus loud music adding to the overall sound.
