I booked a 60th Birthday gathering and it was great. From start to finish I had great communication with Amanda , to doing me a small menu , to number of people, to seating plan. Amanda was great . On the night Mark was very attentive to us , coming over a few times to make sure everything was ok Service was great and compliments to the chef as everyone really enjoyed their meal. It was excellent. After meal some stayed on as there was a group playing which were good so brilliant night Thank you 😊
Great food. Meal for two was fantastic would recommend it.
Service was a bit hit and miss
Excellent meal and excellent service
Thank You All So Much for going the extra mile in every way including reserving an excellent table for the 60th celebrations we had planned & totally unexpected, thoughtful & much appreciated a complimentary cocktail for the Birthday girl 🍹 Congratulations to All staff we dealt with & those we didnt meet ( chef & kitchen staff etc! ) but who also made our day so special. Superb 👍👍👍👍👍
Fantastic service, food great and lovely setting, been many times before and we’ll definitely be back, loving the refurb!
The food was terrible. I had the piri piri chicken salad. The chicken was so incredibly spicy I couldn't eat it....salad,fruit, chicken and pesto just doesn't work. Two of our party had filet steak which was disappointing and one had the fish and chips which was average. It's so noisy you can't hold a conversation. We won't be rushing back.
Great meal and atmosphere in a beautiful marina setting.
It was a lovely day so had our food outside but didn’t like the fact that we had to pay each time we ordered something. Our bill was brought before we had received our meal then had to pay again for drinks and sweets (which were small). We also paid with vouchers which we were given as a gift but we also had to pay by cash or loose money on our vouchers due to a new policy which doesn’t give change either by cash or voucher.
Had a great meal and the service was great
Great food very friendly staff only down side drinks were slow to arrive after ordering
We had chilli ckn, cod & chips, Scampi &chips & a fillet steak all the food was lovely and the view outside in the sun was amazing...
Usually the customer service is first class here. However, on our last visit we were met with a young male waiter who imposed a very stereotypical statement to us, when serving drinks; suggesting a beer was for my partner and a cocktail for me. Just because we’re a gay female couple, immediately certain views where based on us. Hopefully, the person in question has learned by this and in future does not judge a book by its colour!
My friends had open prawn sandwich and it was nothing special, salad very poor, just lettuce no peppers, or more mixed salad very basic. My sweet chilli chicken was very nice, although didn’t like the coriander ice cream. I think it’s a shame that the band don’t come in sooner, and maybe with sound lower while eating, as when they come on to play every one has left the restaurant, then no atmosphere. Groups have been good but only about 25/30 people there. If they came on earlier people would maybe stay a little longer to create a better atmosphere. This restaurant should be buzzing and it’s not! It’s fabulous inside and amazing location! It should be the place to be!
Thank you so much for my dads 50th birthday on Sunday! The card was such a lovely touch!! We will be back!
We had a really lovely evening and will definitely be back :)
Initially taken aback by the pre-order & deposit request but we received a fabulous service on arrival & the food was hot, as ordered & very tasty! I would recommend the Windrose for a relaxed family meal or a night out with friends. Very reasonably priced & very adequate portions. Nice touch that they now have their own lager!!
Excellent renovation of the restaurant. Loved it.
Took and hour and 15 minutes to receive our main course and judging by the amounts of complaints for other dinners they where all experiencing the same service as us. Just think another chef would speed up the output of food. Nice decor and surrounding just a shame
Was our wedding anniversary and waitress wished us a happy anniversary and also wrote happy anniversary on receipt which my wife thought was a lovely jester
Great food, great service. Online booking was easy.
Food was excellent, reasonably priced and good variety available on the menu! Atmosphere was also great, very relaxed and chilled. Service was much faster than i expected having taken less than 30min from arriving to food being served.
service was a bit slow at times but staff were friendly and food was nice.
