Very mediocre food, could produce better at home. We were told the chef was in a mood - not really information that should be shared with diners. First visit, won’t return

The food as always was delicious. The specials are are our favourite with Surf & Turf and Crab and Prawn Lasagne, they are just so tasty and definitely worth a try when you visit ❤️

First time we have been @ the new location. We have been past customers. The new place is beautiful decorated,clean & the tables are well spaced to create an overall perfect setting for a meal.
Liked the fact you could order a full Sunday roast in a variety of meats & also from the Italian menu. Really good especially if you are there with children. Hubby has a lamb roast with extra roasties,very tasty, well made & well presented.I had seafood pasta which was perfect. The 2 teens had pizza which were also well received & with nice thin base.
The food came out a lot faster than we are used to elsewhere especially when there is 2 menus to order from.
We decided to stay on for desserts & weren't disappointed! Especially the apple crumble, nice portion size & extremely tasty.
Also the staff need a mention- polite,attentive& genuinely lovely to the customers.
We will be back sooner than later.
Thank you for a lovely dining experience x

Disappointed with staff attitude when called to advised running a little late. Part of the party was already there and after the call he rudely informed the rest of the table that if we were much longer we couldn’t have the table.

The r restaurant wasn’t particularly busy when we arrived nor when we left.

Food lush but won’t be returning based on service.

We were actually 8mins late… so within the 15min grace period!

The service was fantastic , friendly, quick but unfortunately the Sunday roast let it down.
The roast beef was not carved but was machine sliced and thin. The veg was lovely . We had a vegetarian in the party so had no meat but it was still full price at £9 for a plate of veg, one pudding and no gravy.
The passion fruit cheesecake was fabulous but the green icecream did not taste of pistachio at all. Overall, lovely place and staff but food let it down a bit.

We arrived at the Hanover for my 60th birthday celebration, we ordered drinks and immediately we were asked what we wanted for starters my husband said we would like a few drinks before we ate, we were then told very abruptly that we could only have the table for just over an hour!!! The manner of this man was absolutely disgusting and to me shouldn’t be front of house I worked in a very fine hotel in Bristol and I know about front of house and making the whole experience a good one. We finished our drinks and left and will certainly not be back.

Won’t be in a hurry to go back, service slow, far too noisey, plenty of staff in front of house but very slow in kitchen, shouldn’t take so many bookings of large tables and take outs as well, obviously carnt manage, didn’t like slice beef for a roast dinner, starter was nice, best thing of the entire meal, worst experience was when they tried to give us 2 liqueur coffees when a glass had smashed above them, thought we hadn’t noticed but we did, they were going to give us them but my husband had said hope no glass in them, then suddenly took away and made 2 new ones, not a place I would recommend for Sunday lunch.

It was great to be back at San Marinos after so long due to Covid restrictions.
The staff welcomed us back and made our visit enjoyable. The food was lovely and so was the new restaurant. I don't have a bad word to say. We will be back again very soon.
