    Lovely food and setting, however we found the chef behind the carvery to be very rude and this really spoilt the experience for us. It doesn’t take a lot to smile. The waiting staff were lovely.

    It was a freezing evening but the fire wasn't lit, very good value for money. My potatoes were a little hard but apart from that really enjoyed it. Very quick service. Could do with some low music to create an atmosphere.

    The staff are very friendly, the food is delicious and generously served. Whatever the weather, Lakeview Manor is a lovely location, where a relaxing walk can accompany your meal. We didn't feel in anyway rushed and enjoyed the view from the outdoor decking. It is dog friendly too!!!

    Great service, even with 1 staff member not in we were not impacted as service remained efficient and friendly, excellent food and specials as well as their main menu with local foods. 3rd time visit this week (1 breakfast, 2nd evening meal). All great service in the conservatory where we could take our dog Lotty, parts of the pub area where dogs not allowed, but that is usual and we were happy with that. Great ambience and surroundings with the gardens outside. A great place to go and highly recommended place to eat and stay.

    Husband and daughter enjoyed their main meals. My vegetarian meal was a little bland with no vegetables or side salad. All the puddings were somewhat lacking. Our bottle of wine at £25 was placed on the table unopened and we served ourselves. It was on the pricey side for pub grade food.

    Food was very nice and the staff were friendly and efficient. The overall look and feel was good, and the views were lovely, however for us it was ruined by the smell of dogs everywhere. We don`t find that appealing when dining out, not to mention the hygiene element. There were a few flies buzzing about understandably and trying to land on the food, which together with the smell hampered enjoyment considerably. Pet owners get to eat in the large conservatory and also in one section of the restaurant. Non pet owners only get a small part of the restaurant in which to eat, although this was pleasant enough. Several people like us did not wish to sit in the conservatory due to the smell of dogs in there and the floor not being very clean either. The conservatory is used for breakfast but you can request to have it in the dog free room. On the plus side there was a good selection of different options available on the menu, and gluten free was catered for both at breakfast and evening meal.

    A beautiful setting for a romantic date for the first evening of our holiday. Chilled music in the background and twinkling lights draped around the room to create a tranquil setting. Windows that overlooked the first lake and fountain as well as some surrounding grounds (lawn/woods) added to the ambience of the room. Staff were warm and welcoming and seated and served us promptly. The Menu only had a few options available, although we were also given the specials. As a vegetarian there was only the lentil burger main indicated with a V, no starters or deserts had a V at the side. However some such as the garlic parmesan mushrooms, soup of the day and cheesecake may have been depending on how they were made. I assumed the cheese on this occasion was not, and that the cheesecake was set with gelatine due there being no V next to it, although thought it odd that there was no option at all. When asking the staff member she seemed confused why I was asking if it was suitable and when I explained about rennet and gelatine etc meaning it might not be she replied saying that they were (fine, but due to her confusion I wasn’t convinced, it wasn’t checked with the chef, and if so why was there not a V next to anything but the main?) having said this the lady was polite and friendly about it. Food served (we both had specials and desert) was appealing and tasted good. It was clearly cooked fresh and we enjoyed our meal, even if there was limited choice. We paid around £60 which felt fair for what we had. Would come again if we returned for a stay at the Manor.

    We were a little concerned that dogs are allowed in the dining room. In fact the dogs that were there were quiet and well behaved and didn't cause us any inconvenience. We were warned on arrival that there was a backlog on orders - full marks for warning us. In fact we didn't notice any undue delay. The dining room is spacious and airy with pleasant views through the windows. The menu had several good main courses to choose from. We didn't try the starters. The sweet menu was a bit short but I enjoyed the pavlova. One minor point - the chairs are rather hard.

    Beautiful grounds however the service let it down. The waiters were fine however the carvery server had a rude and belligerent attitude to me, members of my family, and some other diners. This ruined the atmosphere and made us feel uncomfortable to be there. The carvery included what you would expect but was lacking in flavour and the roast potatoes were oily. Wouldn’t recommend.

    The food was good and very tasty but unfortunately the service just wasn’t up to scratch. Everything seemed to go wrong with our meal - ordered our starter and main to then be told 10mins later my starter wasn’t available. They then didn’t put the starters through and wanted us to have our starter and mains together which we declined. My husband got completely the wrong main course and they then forgot our drinks. It was also a very rushed experience. On top of that you also had a member of staff being rude to a colleague in front of us - which I didn’t think was right. We will try the restaurant again during our stay and just hope they were having a bad night previously.

    We stayed at Lakeview Manor for three nights and had dinner each night. I tried three different meals and each meal was excellent. I can also say I tried three different breakfasts and again, each one was excellent.
