I thought both drinks and food were overpriced. It cost us over £70.00 for Sunday lunch which would be okay if it was outstanding but it was not, it was just okay. Very noisy and a bit of a mare to park.

Booked a last minute Sunday lunch after having a reservation elsewhere cancelled 3 hours beforehand, was not disappointed with our choice. I've eaten at Lot on a few occasions & have never been let down by the service or the food I've been served. The only downside is the noise level, it left my ears ringing & the restaurant wasn't even full.

Booked this for a catch up with old colleagues- didn’t stop talking all night, so ambiance must have been good and not too loud. Food was great and service was fantastic- just the right amount of being there when needed, but not obtrusive. Thoroughly enjoyed it

Consistent and reliable. Bit too noisy if seated inside,don’t go if you want a cozy chat, you have to shout, unless you sit outside. Needs some soft furnishing to soak up the reverberating noise. But buzzy and lively, with good atmosphere.
Staff are lovely in the restaurant. All good!

We had a very pleasant meal, as usual. We meet at this restaurant about once a month. The service was excellent and a good atmosphere, the only drawback is the noise level, probably caused by all the hard surfaces, which is the case in most restaurants now.

Would like to see more dessert choices. I have tried all the ones on the menu now.

The LOT was a good reliable restaurant for a Sunday brunch. The service was friendly and quick and the menu contained a good range of breakfast options for most tastes. Slightly disappointing that omelettes were not available on Sundays and that there were no hash browns on the breakfast menu.
Overall, good value for money and we will revisit soon.
