When our friends joined us, it was ages before they were asked if they would like a drink. Waited about 25 minutes between courses which we felt was loo long as the restaurant was not busy. Your serving staff are badly in need of new shirts. They are well passed their best and are not a good advert for your business.

Feel the price of coffee expensive compared to other places around. Also the soft drinks especially for a draught soda water and lime.

We visited waterside for a family meal, even though I booked a table for 6 online the table was only set for 5. Soft drink and bottled beer prices are ridiculous. Meal was ok but wouldn't rush back. The staff are lovely.

Visited restaurant with voucher received due to a Comaunt regarding a poor Christmas lunch. What a difference, fantastic food and great service. Our waiter Craig was friendly, attentive and is a credit to your company.

We have been to the hotel on serval occasions and it’s always been amazing food with amazing service. We returned this weekend and we found the service at the restaurant to be very slow both for dinner and breakfast as well as a few mistake made by the staff it feels disappointing compared to other visits and are now less little to return even though the food was great.

Hotel its self was very accommodating considering we made a mix up in dates, restaurants manager was extremely kind. The young girl who served us made excellent conversation with our 7 year old and the service was polite and very fast. The food was excellent hats off to the chef!! Very cohesive team who worked well together on a busy Saturday night. Thanks

Atmosphere was a bit quiet for the xmas holiday period. When we normally visit the restaurant is usually full. Felt a bit flat this time round, maybe post Brexit hangover?
