    We had an excellent Father's Day meal for 8 people yesterday. The staff were very polite and service was great. The food was delicious and although it was a very busy day for them we were well looked after. Would highly recommend eating here!

    The food was nice but the service was so slow. My children had to wait 1.5 hours before getting anything to eat.

    Went for Fathers day lunch, we all went for the Treacle cured beef, wow was amazing, as was the Treacle Tart with Miso ice ream. Staff were fantastic as always, nothing too much trouble. Love the venue, bright and modern with a fantastic outlook over the course and surrounding area. Will be back , many times 😊

    We have enjoyed coming to Bassett Down in the past but not quite so good this time. Most of the staff were really friendly and obliging but the service was extremely slow we were at our table for 1pm as booked and our main course didn’t arrive until 2.20. We both ordered the pork chop which actually turned out to be a huge amount of pork slices and a bone - no crackling as there was suppose to be. The waitress did go and get us a plate with some on but no apology. The sauce and vegetables were delicious and the pork was nice but far too much meat now for a lot of people that would be a plus it was far to much for me which isn’t a problem as I just left what I couldn’t eat but from your point of view you could put a bit less on the plate and not have the waste. It won’t stop us coming again but I would hope for improvement in the service next time.

    We booked as we’re looking for a venue for a 90th birthday and we wanted to see if it might be suitable. Our table was booked for one. The staff were extremely helpful but it took an hour for our main meal to arrive. We won’t re book because although the staff were great the food took too long and it was noisy which is difficult for elderly people. I also felt it was slightly expensive for what we had had which was good but ultimately a Sunday roast.

    Food was good. Waited some time before being asked if we wanted drinks (we had to initiate action by asking if we could order drinks!!).
