Service charge of 12.5% is far too much. Everything seemed too much trouble for the staff, least attentive I’ve ever seen

Everything was excellent. Great service, amazing food. Only issue and I big one. The noise.. the music was on far too loud. I did ask if could be turned down, it was, but only for a few minutes.
Honestly, it would make me think twice, before coming again.

We were surprised see the service charge was added, because we found it was not justified for the service we received. We had long waits and difficulty getting our order. When order was finally taken, there was confusion over one main course.The food was very basic, big difference from our previous experience

Fantastic welcome. Opening the door as we arrived and when we left our waitress and two managers thanked us and said goodbye. Was really appreciated. Service was excellent, not fussed over was just enough. Waitress was friendly and helpful. I am one of those annoying people with a nut allergy and had no issues at all. Steaks cooked spot on and all hot, I had cranberry and white chocolate bread and butter pudding, this was amazing. The restaurant was clean and tidy. Fun music and just all round 10/10.

Booked a table for 11am, arrived at 10 minutes past 11 (so within the 15 minutes grace period) to find they had given our table away at 11am. Had to wait 15 minutes to be seated, once seated we ordered drinks and food. The drink took 25 minutes to arriv(it came after the food) and it was the wrong tea. The pancakes were also very dry.

There is a great choice of food, something for everyone! Everything we ordered was fabulous, good size portions....no complaints at all.
Service was really slow though, we had to ask for someone to take our order after being sat there for over 15 mins.
Other than that, no negative points at all.
I would recommend to any fussy...vegan...meat eating...pescatarian... or any other foodie type.

A very pleasant restaurant with great views over the lake. Food and service well above average for this type of restaurant franchise. My sirloin steak was cooked medium rare to perfection and the service was attentive and efficient. We all had something different to eat, the fish pie looked and, I gather, tasted wonderful. However the Burger got rave reviews and indeed looked a thing of beauty.
All in all it was a very good dining experience and one we shall certainly be repeating.

We received a warm welcome on arrival and from our server. The menu choices were excellent. Two of our party went for the early evening steak special and one for chicken skewers. Both had excellent quality and quantity, and the items were well presented on the plate. The surroundings were really nice - tables, chairs, cutlery. There seemed to be a delay in getting desserts but the server was pleasant when we asked, and the desserts turned up within a minute - piping hot. We had asked for some water when first ordering but this did not arrive - the only negative point. When we got our bill the server pointed out that an optional gratuity was included and we thought it was good she pointed this out - and we were happy to include it. I think our booking was at staff change over time which is possibly why we did not get water and the desserts were delayed, but all in all it was smooth. We will certainly go again.

Had a table booked for my birthday dinner. Booking was for 8pm. Told to wait outside until they called us in (it was pouring down). Got seated at 8.15. Very wet and uncomfortable. Then had a 40 minute wait for a drink and a 75 minute wait for our food. The food was the only good thing once it arrived
Management didnt seem to care at all. The music was like being in a nightclub very loud and had to shout to be heard. Would I go here again ? Never !!!!
