    I have been coming to Lot for many years and just feel that the service received from some members of staff lets their standards down. Such a shame. Food was excellent, just disappointed with one member of staff who could do with some extra training, then it would be perfect.

    We had a lovely evening in The Lot as ever as a group of four friends . The service was fantastic, always a friendly welcome from Rui, Sigu, Rehema and Theo. We are greeted like friends and nothing is too much trouble. The lamb rack was gorgeous as was the fig and goats cheese starter with pomegranate molasses. Our party also had steaks and chicken Milanese and gambas. All delicious and accompanied by some lovely wine . Thank you for yet another lovely evening .

    Went there for my birthday brunch with friends and loved it. Friendly, attentive service, delicious food (I had the Eggs Benedict), and great drinks. I really enjoyed a latte and the freshly squeezed orange juice made me feel like I was on holiday. Love it there. Would definitely recommend.
