                              After trying to arrange a Sunday Roast somewhere (which is rare for me as I work every weekend) I found this restaurant online and thought I’d give it a whirl since there isn’t many reviews online. There is parking at the front and rear of the Hotel. Bouvardia feels like a time capsule in the best way. Some might call it old fashioned, but it gives off class and elegance with flowers placed around, very pretty! I think if I was staying there, I’d feel more at home, as it feels like it’s not really somewhere which is open to the public. Service was attentive without being intrusive at all and pleasant with many smiles, though not very talkative or any small talk to be had e.g no questions about our day/plans for the rest of the day etc. It didn’t feel as warming as anticipated. Food is fantastic with lots of flavour and the presentation is beautiful. Scallops to start were the best out of the 3 courses, 10/10 all day long. Sirloin beef was slightly warm as opposed to hot which wasn’t the end of the world as it was delicious regardless. The vegetables especially were a real treat too and the cauliflower cheese was the best I’ve had! I hoped the Sticky Toffee Pudding came with a sauce, but it didn’t which was a shame as that’s one of the best bits! Unsure about the two small pieces of meringue placed on the top of it, felt like they weren’t suppose to be there. In terms of value, it’s certainly on point for the quality you get.

                              We fancied going out for Sunday lunch and this restaurant is a five minute walk away plus it’s new to us. We were not disappointed. The food is outstanding and the service impeccable. The surroundings are top class, white linen everywhere and excellent quality crockery and cutlery We will definitely be back

                              The food was very good, especially the main course and the dessert. The pastry in the starter (carrot tart) was a little overcooked. The service was excellent and we were made to feel very welcome.

                              Lovely looking 3 course meal, with beautiful tastes, I had duck for starters, rump for main and sticky chocolate for desert, only let down was main I found the rump very tough and chewy Also I had no steak knife and found it almost impossible to cut

                              I had a fantastic roast dinner at Bouvardia & would definitely return. My personal preference would have been to have the roast potatoes a little more well done, but they were extremely tasty cooked in duck fat. The service was superb. I would highly recommend this venue for a Sunday roast.

                              Nice staff, nice place. Tables are too closed to each other’s, limiting privacy for a date. Starters was very good with the promise of an amazing meal. In comparaison, main courses and desserts were disappointing then very disappointing.

                              The meals are outstanding and cannot be faulted. This is a lovely restaurant with attentive staff. We aim to return again next week.

                              First time dining at Bouvardia and all the components that make an enjoyable dining experience were there for all to see, from the warm professional welcome to the Menu choice and execution of all the dishes we had a very nice evening and we will return sometime soon.

                              Very happy to be out for a meal, very good, I had one very small complaint, the food could have been hotter, i think maybe the plates were not hot enough. Otherwise the food was delicious.

                              Although the menu was quite small, we thoroughly enjoyed the scallop starter and brisket of beef for maincourse. The Polish head waitress Kate was very attentive and professional and looked after us very well.

                              Food was a bit average for what it was billed to be. Service was fine and decor was fine if a bit dated

                              After looking at some TA reviews we didn't know what to expect! As it was we had a good evening. Very well cooked and presented with a very good value wine list. Marked down for 'noise' as we really don't like background music. They did turn it down when asked but still a bit intrusive.

                              Food was plated up beautifully but something was off about all the flavours... it didn’t taste as good as it looked and nearly everything was deliberately raw/cold/undercooked... something carpaccio or something brûlée... it’s like the chef doesn’t like using the oven. We were advised to have our pork a little pink in the middle but it was completely pink, and not very hot. Decided to go elsewhere for dessert.

                              This was a lovely restaurant, beautiful ambiance and quiet atmosphere. The food was excellent fine dining throughout 6 courses between 2 people, except for a miss on a risotto that lacked flavor, but otherwise the pork loins and starters and desserts were really incredible. Service and staff was also very good and attentive and friendly. Had a lovely time and we would go again!

Service is very attentive yet discreet. Food is excellent and expertly prepared -though more vegetables please. Worthy choice and a definite to return.

                              Food was very good though a few more vegetables would be welcome. However we all felt the ambience is a little strange, feels like the breakfast room rather than restaurant, which detracts from the overall experience.
