The meal was lovely and the girl serving was very attentive. Although we did wait quite a while for the courses to come. The food nicely presented and tasted great however once we left the dining area and made way to the pub section the service for drinks was terrible. You were standing at the bar for at least 15 minutes plus before you got served. The staff looked very harassed and there was very little of them serving. Disappointingly the drink we ordered sold out very quickly. I have been to the Torrance a few times but will probably will only go back to eat.

The restaurant mid week was quiet and as a result a little lacking in atmosphere. However as we were there fore a catch-up we weren’t fighting ‘muzak’. Staff were excellent as always as way food.

We arrived at 6pm on a Sunday and we felt disappointed when informed that there were quite a few dishes on the menu not available such as burgers and enchiladas. Then once again ordering cocktails informed no candy floss left for one of the cocktails. It all seemed quite early in the day to have food and drink not available, I’m glad we did not have a later booking.

Had a kinda ordinary dinner at the Torrance Hotel. It was very busy and we felt really rushed. The food was very ordinary and the wine overpriced for the quality. We were asked to vacate our table but noticed half an hour later it was still empty!!!!!

As a coeliac who is also vegetarian I was very disappointed in the gluten free choices. I had been in at Xmas and your choices were fantastic. I had 2 dishes (soup and sweet potato curry which tasted similar!) and the only gf dessert choice was ice cream! My partner said her starter was lovely but her main ( fish and chips) was ok. Service, staff , atmosphere was lovely. I doubt I’ll be back though which is a shame 😏

My husband got his lip cut on a glass that was chipped and he hadn’t noticed it was chipped before drinking out of it when we brought it too the managers attention all we got was sorry I’ll get you a fresh one not even are you ok or bleeding. Didn’t feel the food was worth the price for what we got.

A disappointing visit. Starter was disappointing chipotle chicken bites lacking in flavour, 5 bites and the starter was gone this was including the 2 bits I couldn’t eat which were gristle. I have had the dish before and it was larger with more flavour. Fish and chips was ok and dessert was sticky toffee which was a huge slice which was surprising considering the size of the starter but this was burnt around the edges luckily the ice cream covered the taste of some of this up. The one thing that was great was our servers. Looks like you need to improve your food to the same level of service provider by your servers.

Although the food was excellent the service was very poor. It took almost two hours for us to have Two courses. The waiter didn't write anything down and botched the order. It did get rectified but delayed one of our party eating. I eventually had to leave before coffee came as it took so long. The service spoiled our experience

We used a black Friday voucher for lunch, due to using a voucher we were unable to get anything from lunch menu. It ended up being an expensive lunch although we did enjoy our food. We felt we didn't get value for money from voucher. The lunch menu 2 courses for £13 we had to buy separate from a la carte costing over £20 therefor cancelling any discount from voucher. Would not buy again.
