Went here today to celebrate a birthday. The food was fine but I definitely would not go back because of the terrible service. We ordered a la carte & because they forced my 3 & 4 year olds to take adult portions we had a lot of food left over. They do takeaways so I asked if I could pack... More

The food here was very bland and just thrown together. No effort what so ever. for the price of the food I expected something atleast edible. Wouldn't go back here again. The place itself looks lovely... Very decieving.

Visited several times most recently for Sunday buffet. Good value at £16:50 per a person although not sure why they add a service charge for the buffet. Food is very good would recommend lamb massam and green chicken curry. Service ok could be better took a while to order drinks.

This venue was one of our favourites but of late the service was very slow and the food not always hot but otherwise quite good.,

I visited this restaurant twice before in past years and I was therefore surprised to find that on this latest occasion the food and service, as well as the quality of the wine (I expected much more flavour from a Gewurztraminer and a better taste from the vintage Port-1985) and the bill I was eventually presented with, service included, ended...

I have been here probably four times now and never had a bad or even average experience. The food is outstanding, the ambiance of the restaurant is chill-axing whether you are with friends or looking for something more romantic - the bridge over the small water feature is great to take you to your table and that's before you have...

I have been here many times and each time the food has been delicious :-) I normally come on special occasions as for a local it is pricey, however the food is definitely worth it. The atmosphere in the restaurant itself is great and perfect for romantic meals.. Especially nice on Saturday evenings where it is busy with live music

Visited with a friend. The ambience at the restaurant was really nice. The food was really delicious. Enjoyed the environment and the water features at the restaurant. The service left a lot to be desired. The staff were a bit misrable and not attntive at all. I went mid week and it was not a busy evening at all. I... More

I have been here a few times. The layout & decor is lovely, with lovely atmosphere especially at the weekend when they have entertainment. The food & cocktails they provide are very satisfying, with most being a decent price for what it's worth. Every time I have been the staff have been friendly & happy to help. I would recommend...

I have eaten here a few times before but last night was absolutely horrid. We were ignored when we arrived and left standing in the cold door way. When we were finally shown to our table, by what felt to be a waiter who didn't want to be there, he showed us to a small table set for two people.... More
