Our first visit to The Pavilion and we really enjoyed it. Quite a limited menu though.
We had the BBQ fajitas for two. The chicken was very tasty and the spices were just right. Nice sides too. Would have liked to have had my wraps warm but that’s a personal thing.
Staff very friendly and attentive.
Lovely meal in nice surroundings. We’ll be back.

Nice place but limited menu being vegetarian and only one vegan main meal which contained soya which allergic to. Every option was based on halloumi which tho nice if you don't like it your pretty much done for only real option was to have a couple of starters. Many places do this and just offer variations on one thing.
Saying that what we did have was huge the portionsize was enormous, may too big. Otherwisee a lovely evening

Friendly staff, quick service but orderd fried halloumi which came in giant slabs barely even cooked, chips weren’t as advertised, saw kitchen staff and bar staff trailing through restaurant with rubbish which wasn’t very good.

Everything great except staff constantly coming and asking if you’re ready to order, 6 times last night, 5 different staff members. Need to get a system in place to stop this because it’s very annoying.

Due to day and time, it felt like we were slightly rushed. One of the waitress told us that we had to finish up due to table being needed. We weren't even offered a dessert menu, probably as a result of needing the table. Generally, the food and service is good and we probably return.

Amazing staff, very accommodating!
Gorgeous restaurant and lovely food! Did want just an ordinary lasagne so was a little disappointed when it wasn’t- so ordered something else! Not a problem though because it was still tasty!

We went for tea. I had vegan burger and my partner had pavilion burger. Both were delicious. We did not wait excessively for our food. The music was Set at the right volume so we could here each other speak. All the staff we met were polite and courteous and checked we were happy with our food and checked to see if we wanted drink refill. The restaurant appears clean and hygienic. We would visit again

Was a lovely time. Service was quick and never felt like we were waiting for anything. The portions were a bit small for the sides but it wasn't too bad as the food was filling. Absolutely loved it. 5/5

Service spot on, friendly staff.

Food was dire. Truly horrendous.

Soggy, oily fries.

The worst attempt of a patatas bra as I’ve ever had the bad luck of tasting.

Overall nice experience, service was excellent. Good could done have done with being hotter. Hassle back halloumi would be better griddled. But not bad 👍🏻
