    We were disappointed that the burgers didn’t come with chips and only realised when they came out to our table. For the amount we paid we would have expected chips with them. Over priced we feel.

    We had an excellent set menu of 2 courses for a very reasonable price and the quality of the food its presentation and service was superb They were able to adapt meal to make dairy free for us at no expense to the quality of the dish We had the fish course for two and was the best cooked fish we have had or sometime. If you are in the area you must try this restaurant but be warned you may need to book but we only booked on the day so you may be lucky like us

    Lovely meal, from a great menu. We struggled to choose! Slight downside was the draught from the outside door as it opened and closed when people came and went, and the proximity to a large party who greeted each other and stood around right next to our table as they arrived and left without being aware of our personal space. All in all a really pleasant evening - and the flexibility to do affogato for us as a dessert when it wasn’t on the menu was a highlight, too. We‘ll definitely return!

    Always good here and the service. The only comment I would make is on future I would ask for a hot plate as food goes cold quickly when it's served on a warm or cool plate. Look.forward to returning in a couple of weeks for the same.. delicious!

    The Sunday roast is absolutely delicious! We ordered the lamb roast, it was perfectly cooked, pink in the middle. The roast potatoes were crispy on the outside and fluffy in the middle, and the bowl of seasonal greens is a great addition along with the best Yorkshire pudding! I would come every week if I could!

    Came here on a Saturday night for a meal with a friend. Quite noisy when we arrived with a child on an adjoining table playing a loud and annoying vomputer game but luckily they soon left and in fact it was very quiet towards the end if tge evening with us being the last to leave just begore 10pm. Had starters of the squid and prawn tempura - very nice but a small portion. Our mains of prawn sambal were overly hot and spicy which ruined our enjoyment of the dish and meant quite a lot had to be left. This was annoying as I had asked the waitress how hot the dish was and was assured it was very mild. Dessert was a bit odd - I think it might have been a vegan recipe. Overall OK but pricey compared to other venues.

    We are regulars and were celebrating a birthday. The restaurant was quiet for a Friday evening. No surprise birthday plate offered for 13 year old nor any fuss at all. Bit disappointing particularly as we dine regularly and have done since the Tuning Fork first opened. We did put the birthday on booking form. Oh and the fillet steak which attracted a supplement was cold and rather blue considering medium rare. My daughter had an upset stomach at 1am. Sorry but want to give constructive feedback!! Our meals are usually A1.

    Disappointing visit, we have been a number of times and this one was not the best. Took 30 mins to get a drink, Steak was cold, chips were cold, mushrooms were the only think that was hot on the plate. Haven’t felt great after the meal still not feeling 100% . Not the usual high standard but they were packed so maybe unexpectedly full

    We were a tad unlucky and got slightly overlooked in taking our order however when they did get to us the staff were friendly and fine. Food was reasonably priced, not the cheapest at circa £16 for a full english, but it looked, smelled and tasted great. Capuccini was lovely and very hot too which I like. All in all a very nice breakfast amd a nice place to go.

    Although we had a nice experience, we felt the food had been a lot better in the past. The meal which I always looked forward to seemed to have shrunk in size and lost its edge. A bit disappointed but the coffee was good. And a nice little place to meet up with friends.
