Before we left we looked up the best restaurants and thought that Claytons lounge bar look OK. It was! We both had the halloumi burger and decided that we had made a good choice.

My food was delicious and excellent value for money, but the best thing about the whole experience was the amazing service of Fay and Jason.

Amazing restaurant lovely food to tantalise the taste buds. We had the best mussels cooked in a smooth creamy sauce followed by wild mushroom risotto. Staff were friendly and courteous and a very mellow atmosphere making it a very enjoyable evening

Went as a large booking for a belated birthday celebration & was honestly very pleasantly surprised with the food and service we received. So, the food was really amazing.

We booked a table for my mum's 60th birthday at the end of last year and what can I say... The staff were excellent - what a difference it makes to a place. The food was great - trying to please 8 people is a tough task and they nailed it. Great food, Great atmosphere, Great staff.

My family and I met at Claytons for a couple of post Christmas drinks. I had a couple of gin and tonics which were absolutely outstanding and great value. We had a lovely time, thank you very much!
