The food was very good but my fish was a little dry but not enough to complain and everything else was lovely. The staff were friendly. The noise level was intolerable at times could not hear the person sitting next to me let alone opposite !!!!

A regular meet up with friends. We choose The Lot as the food is tasty and well presented.

On this occasion we took one of the friends 2 year child along and there was a kids menu which was great and he ordered chicken and chips and wanted beans with it but they could only serve green beans which was a shame. Saying that the restaurant do welcome children.

I have been to Lot on several occasions and always enjoyed the food. However on this occasion although the food was very good, the service was quite poor. Our lunch order had been ‘forgotten’ and had to be reordered, so we waited well over an hour to eat. The restaurant did not seem particularly busy when we arrived or left, so I’m really not sure what the problem or distraction was but slightly embarrassing as my guest had driven quite a way to visit on my recommendation.

I would usually recommend lot but I took friends on Saturday for breakfast raving about it to them as usually always been very good
Unfortunately I was disappointed this tine was very noisy food was below its usual standard and presentation service was slow and had to actually get up and ask for sugar! Wasn’t checked on enough to see if wanted anything

Staff always friendly and welcoming,we arrived slightly early but were still able to have a pre-lunch drink at our table. Nice gaps between courses so didn’t feel rushed. Food was really good with a good selection on the menu . Lot remains our favourite place to eat out locally.

When we arrived the restaurant was busy and noisy.our waiter offered us a different table in a quieter area that was much better for us. The food was delicious and service good and although we had been told that we would have to leave our table within two hours that didn't happen either so a good dining experience

Cajun chicken was so tough couldn’t eat it and the burger was not good either. Staff just said they would tell the kitchen. Would not go back.
