Excellent customer service from friendly helpful efficient staff but food was rather disappointing. For example menu could have included some more adventurous ideas . I had Chicken sticky teriyaki with rice. The chicken was really dry inside with a little bit of sauce on top. All very dry - perhaps I should have asked for more sauce- no evidence of marination or moisture.

We are regulars here and have been for years. The Food and service is always of a very high standard. However the noise level was simply painful. This was an early sitting, 5.15pm, it seemed as if there was nothing to absorb the noise. Whilst it can has been noisy in the past, that has been in the evening as expected. We enjoy coming here as a family and hopefully in the upcoming refurb this can be carefully considered.

The lunch menu is great value and the chicken wrap I had came with fries and salad. Great choice of wines too. Always great ambience too. Closed for refurb soon on 13th Feb so exciting things ahead.

I go to Lot often. Really love this restaurant. Even though I booked early and asked for a quiet table we were in a noisy area! Food and service is amazing.

Younger staff fabulous. Older male staff rude! Maybe he was the manager who knows, but I wouldn’t go back after his attitude. Not a welcoming man (face said it all) abs hears a few Amy comments to the young staff that left a bad taste with me

I have been to The Lot so many times in December it’s embarrassing! You can sit outside so it is my only way to see people I care about and share something nice to eat and wish them a happy Christmas! Thanks for making this possible! X

Wonderful food and service that was blighted by a total disregard for current Covid safety. The establishment needs to be more stringent regarding diners safety.
