I enjoyed the ambience in the restaurant, service was quick and efficient. The meatball dish I had was terrific and very tasty . Not over crowded for a Saturday evening will be heading back eventually.

The atmosphere and staff were lovely but unfortunately the food was a let down. The food has been recommended before but I think me and my partner must have just ordered the wrong things. Tasted bland and damp. I'd give them another chance and maybe order something diff next time.

I am a regular diner here and I’d reccommended it to 2 of my friends . We didn’t like our table and asked to swap as soon as we entered, lots of spare tables , manager said “no” , even tho she let the table behind us swap . I ordered a glass of Malbec like it states on the menu , and was told I could only order a bottle , which I didn’t want . My friends were up for leaving before we ate but I persuaded them to stay as the food is really good , which it was . The waitresses were excellent too . Their customer service was loads better than their manager. She could do with learning from them .
I would return but my friends wouldn’t unfortunately

Recent change of menu didn't cater for us all I'm afraid. Food still good though. Maybe 1 or 2 more traditional meals should be included for older visitors.

3 items we chose off the menu were unavailable, as was 2 of the drinks we chose.
Then 2 dishes of our order had been forgotten so we had to wait whilst rest of food was going cold served at
Someone was changing the music which was being played so we got blasted by extremely loud crackling and banging a few times.
Whilst the cocktails and food we had were good it wasn't up to its usual exceptional standard that we've come to enjoy from earlier visits.
This was for a special occasion and it left us wishing we'd chosen somewhere else.

It's always a pleasure to go for lunch or drinks on a night out at The Pavillion. The staff is extremely kind, helpful and very efficient! The atmosphere is calm and enjoyable even when it's a busy Saturday evening when it's bustling with people. A great place to meet and chill all night if you want to.

To say it was Father’s Day there was only us sat outside and felt like we were forgotten most of the time the service is normally excellent but was poor,the sausage Rahul was dissapointing and too much flavour shook onto Cajun chips. My nieces pizza was soggy and there was only myself had desert no cutlery to eat with so asked for a spoon was brought a fork so had to wait again for a spoon not up to usual standard.

The cocktails were lovely (although a little slow to say how quiet it was.
2 of us ordered the duck pancakes, they needed more punch maybe some hoisin? Why you'd add slices of raw babycorn to them I do not know. The meat was rather sloppy and not very pleasant to eat.
The bao buns were lovely as was the pulled pork burger and sausage pasta dish
