    My daughter and I have eaten at this restaurant several times since she started university in September and we always have a great meal and a lovely time. The restaurant is beautiful with it's gorgeous chandeliers and pretty chairs. The staff are always welcoming, even when we arrived very early on this occasion. We were seated straight away. The food, special burger with honey and bacon, was very tasty. I had a pot of tea which went well. If I hadn't been driving I would have sampled a cocktail as they sounded gorgeous too. Lovely time!

    Service was slow which was disappointing, we both ordered the large breakfast and it looked amazing. However the sausage was bland and not very Cumberland and the bacon was really fatty streaky bacon. It was average at best.

    Food was fine but took an hour to arrive. Afterwards I got a phone call accusing me of leaving without paying. The guy admitted then that he’d looked at the table plan wrongly, but it definitely could have been handled better.

    Me and my husband have visited just the 2 of us and really enjoyed it so we thought we'd come back with our 4 children today and it was so disappointing. It was busy but plenty of staff. It took almost an hour for food to arrive, there were plenty of staff around but a lot seemed to be stood around.. the staff member did apologize as he served us. The food was substandard the kids meals were especially bad the humus had a weird watery layer on top . Then after finishing our meal we asked for the kids ice cream and again waited over 30 mins again and I walked past and again 5 staff were stood around so I asked again as we had 3 pm reservations and was told again it's on its way. I did appreciate it was Saturday but just too slow and not nice enough for the price

    Sat us in the corner and then took a long time to get the menus and then food arrived nicely and tasted good and then since we were students we used student discount and took a while for someone to come over and use it

    Good GF choices Good flavours Meals are not presented well for the price Automatic addition of 12.5% Service Charge when you are paying £16+ for a burger I’d expect that includes good service as standard Quite expensive for what it is

    They didn’t put our order through, we simply ordered two breakfasts and some tea and orange juice. The drinks came but the breakfasts didn’t for 40 minutes. We were sat waiting with no explanation, finally we were told the breakfasts were coming soon. At which point my girlfriend saw the waitress put the order into the system. Very disappointed.
