Lovely meal with fantastic food and service as ever. It was our first time taking our children (6 and 8) for an early dinner seating - there’s no official children’s menu but the staff were really accommodating and made mini fish and chips for one child and a plainer chicken dish for the other child.

LSB is my favourite restaurant and it’s always a treat to dine the food. The setting is lovely whatever time of year the food is delicious and staff courteous and ideal hosts. I have never had a bad meal in the many years I have been going. I am so glad I have been able to go in these trouble times

Fantastic food, and not overly expensive if you go before 7pm and choose from the set lunch menu. The staff were friendly and efficient, and the ambience was relaxed. Recommended!

We both chose meals that we'd never had before the delivery for both our starters and main course. The presentation was what we've come to expect and the food was cooked to perfection. Then as our coffees arrived so did a large plate with three sweets and a Happy Birthday piped in Chocolate it was for me and I really appreciated the kind thought. We had a nice welcome on arrival and all staff were so attentive and friendly.

had a really nice meal at LSB last weekend. the service was great, the drinks were good, and the food was really good but not amazing.

overall, we really enjoyed it but i felt it was expensive for what it was, having had better food for closer to half the price in local gastropubs.

My husband and I went to LSB for dinner on a Thursday eve to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The service was absolutely wonderful the food was delicious and the ambience just right. They also bought out our dessert with Happy Anniversary written in the plate which was a lovely touch.

The food was delicious-well presented and with novel pairings or twists on old favourites. I’d never have thought to put haggis with venison, but it was really enjoyable.
Service was friendly, fun and welcoming whilst still being professional-and asking for an adjustment on one of the desserts due to a mild food intolerance was done with no fuss or issues.
The afternoon/early evening menu is particularly good value (although slightly limited in the mains for the non fish eaters) and we liked the option of being able to pick and mix between the two.

Very good meal only issue was with a couple of puddings the meringue was a little tough had to be returned and the passion fruit panna Cota tasted like vanilla.
Staff were friendly and the puddings were removed from the bill overall very good as always.

The starters were excellent however the duck main was really dry and unenjoyable. Also, putting watermelon with it? Does not go.

Head waitress (I assume) was a bit grumpy and didn't want to know. The young blonde waitress was lovely though.

Beautiful food with excellent service. A tad expensive but worth paying in most cases. Main a little too heavy for my liking with too many flavours (pork belly) but otherwise perfect

Excellent birthday lunch. Unusually I went for the vegetarian main, halloumi (with harissa sauce), which was very good - and I saw a few other people ordered. Had the panna cotta for desert - which went well with the orange bits it came with. Nice coffee too.

Good tasty starters but let down BADLY with their " Beer battered cod, chips, tartare. mushy peas" How can you make a mistake with what is a British classic dish. Beer batter! under cooked ,no crisp bite and soggy looked and tasted as if it had been "hanging around".
Waitress, who was very good, recognized this but the man who replaced my dish made no apology just stated "here is your CRISPY fish". Unfortunately my wife by this point had almost finished her main course.
So very disappointed!
