Excellent meal with massive portion sizes. Greeted on entry and brilliant professional and welcoming service throughout. Never managed to sit in outdoor area (no fault of the Torrance, due to family health unable to be outdoors), however, will be back to check it out! Also, the front restaurant area with the bar was lovely, a few birthdays going on that day. Highly recommend!!!

We arrived and we’re immediately seated with the service being first class. The staff were very attentive throughout the meal with a special mention made to Jonathan Ewing who was beyond exceptional on the night. Unfortunately after the meal and our dinner plates were cleared we were almost 50 minutes before we decided to leave as we felt discarded as we weren’t approached for additional drinks or anything. There was numerous staff member standing around but they appeared more interested in what was happening with a 30th birthday party which was happening. Overall, great food, great service at the start of the night but left with a sore taste at the end which left us leaving the hotel and heading home.

Lovely restaurant and attentive staff. The food never fails to satisfy although the Chocolate & Tablet cheesecake was a disappointment. Very stodgy and sickening. Such a pity, other cheesecakes have always been superb. Pan fried cod with coriander & coconut crust plus jasmine rice was outstanding. We shall dine here again.

Dining with friends have been here several times previously. First issue no ginger beer. When 3 meals served one of the party was informed there were no eggs to top his risotto. Surely this should have been realised earlier.We were offered complimentary drinks and decided on coffees. My latte was so strong certainly no resemblance to usual coffee. One of the other party complained her coffee was cold. Not a very good experience won’t be in a rush to return.

I've eaten in The Torrance a lot over the years but I have to say they have upped their game considerably and I hope it continues. We were a party of 4 including my 11 month old granddaughter. I had made a reservation and our table complete with high chair was waiting for us on arrival. The staff were friendly and welcoming, food was excellent, no complaints whatsoever, staff were extremely attentive and made a fuss of the wee one, which she loved! I will certainly be returning more regularly in the future. Can thoroughly recommend.

Great service and fantastic food. The only thing I thought was strange was the combination of the chicken skewers with the coleslaw on the lunchtime menu. I didn't think the flavours went together. I think the staff in the Torrance are fantastic. The rest of our food was delicious. Definitely coming again.

I have to say I was a very disappointed on this recent visit for lunch to the Torrance. One of the the main reasons being that I asked for a quiet booth and we were sat at the first booth on the right hand side at the door. Since we went on a Friday (never again!!) it was very busy and there was a booking for a large group for a 30th birthday who were seated diagonally across the floor. This meant that they were seated very close to us and we could not have a conversation as the level of noise was increasing. However I totally understand they were enjoying themselves but I feel they should have been seated in the conservatory which was empty apart from one table. We were given this as a christmas gift but feel it was overshadowed by a number of issues and not what we expected. My mum who has poor eyesight and poor mobility really struggled to get past them to go to the bathroom. She has to use a rolator to mobilise and there was no room to get past. I think this is disgraceful and it caused her uneccesary stress and anxiety and really upset her when this was supposed to be an enjoyable afternoon out. The food was nice and the staff attentive but I am in no rush to return to the Torrance Hotel.
