    I found the place smelling egg and the food was really low quality. Even the poached eggs were properly boiled.

    Second time I have eaten there and again it was faultless. The staff are so attentive and incredibly inviting without it being too much. We had the Sunday roast. It’s hard to make a Sunday roast stand out but this did. Tatties were amazing. Gravy, red cabbage all the veg delicious. And the lamb.... such incredible flavour and melt in tour mouth. All that rounded off with a draft Aspalls... I had a great Sunday. Obviously.

    Absolutely great! The food tasted as good as it looked which was quite an achievement seeing as it was beautiful. The staff couldn’t have been friendlier. Maybe we were lucky as we dined slightly later than usual but we could easily chat without having to shout to be understood or whisper for a modicum of privacy. So overall couldn’t fault it and will definitely be back!!!

    Much better than expected food and ambience but the service was very hit-or-miss to say the least. At this level of price, £100pp, we'd expect properly trained staff.

    Great spot for Valentine’s dinner! We decided to go with the A La Carte Menu rather than a Set Menu. The Duck and Lamb were perfectly cooked and tasted amazing. We skipped the dessert this as we were so full, but definitely coming back!

    We had a lovely dinner at Pomona's with the Vegetarian Tasting menu (as shame that we had to ask for it rather than having it on the table at the beginning, along with the other drinks and food menus). Great tasting experience, and for once, vegetarian dishes were all amazing, not an avalanche of cheese and fried stuffs as you can sometimes find in other places. That was proper seasonal vegetables cooked in various and innovative ways. Thanks for the experience! Desserts were amazing as well! And the "fake" brut Champagne from London was pretty nice as well! We'll be back :)

    Amazing food, we had high expectations but unfortunately the service was poor. Half of our dishes were not presented when served. Neither were the wines that we requested to be paired for our dishes. And since you were not very busy we would have expected more from your friendly staff.

    Everything was very good EXCEPT some of our party wanted to order off the Xmas menu and we were told that we could not do this unless we had advised the restaurant when booking. There was Nothing on the website or the confirmatory booking email to say this was so. I argued the case and then was told that we could now order from the Xmas menu but only if the whole table of 8 ordered from the Xmas menu. 4 guests wanted the a la carte menu but had to use the Xmas menu to keep the other 4 happy. How incompetent and anti-customer focus!

    A little overpriced for brunch and the food quality was so-so. There is also very little choice on the brunch menu. Overall the place has great potential given the great spot and layout so it is a little disappointing.

    Nice atmosphere and decor. However the food was nothing special. Typical brunch and the quantities quite small. Something that you could find in any other brunch place. The cocktails were a bit overrated. Ordered the mushroom fricassee with poached eggs but the eggs were clearly not poached but soft boiled. In overall, nice to try out but would not go back any time soon.

    Had a family meal, celebrating my mother in law's birthday. We were greeted by friendly receptionists. Lovely decor and interesting menu choices. Some of us wanted to try the tasting menu and others wanted to go a la carte but we were told this wasn't possible so the whole table opted for the a la carte. All dishes were great - Halibut, Duck and Bavette steak superbly cooked and we were very impressed with the chips too (extremely fluffy inside & crispy on the outside). Starters were lovely too - cauliflower dish had amazing flavour even though I would have liked it slightly less cooked. The only downside was the waiting staff who seemed enthusiastic but we just didn't feel comfortable with. We felt he was trying to come across very sophisticated and fluent in the way he tried to describe the menu. What made it difficult/awkward was when he took the bread plates away even before any of us had a chance to eat the bread and as he did so, he said to us that 'oh our restaurant do not charge for the bread'. He may have had a good intention but to us, it just came across as though he assumed none of us ate the bread for not wanting to be charged.... whereas, in reality, our bread was served and he took the plates away within a few min... Although my husband was rather offended by this exchange, we decided to try and not let it ruin our lovely dinner and we certainly did enjoy the food and wine. I would be happy to recommend the restaurant for its food to my friends but perhaps with a small caveat of our experience.

    I was so excited to bring my Australian family to this restaurant to sample British food - amazing local produce and amazing flavours However I think the menu was overly fussy - and my tuna was very bland, and the whole menu was very Expensive - especially the wine and overly fussy and small portions s It was a shame the ingredients weren’t allowed to just shine through Although a nice try I don’t feel the food justified the price

    I used to love the menu at pomonas but it became a bit too healthy and complicated. The scrambled eggs were a bit liquid and the salmon wasn't exceptional for the price. But the service is outstanding, as always.
