My boyfriend & I share a birthday & had the most wonderful time celebrating at Grand Cafe. The food was excellent - I had steak on the stone & my boyfriend had lamb. Both were delicious! We also had a few cocktails that were really top quality. However it was the staff who made our visit extra special. James especially.... More

Had a lovely meal here with a group. Menu fantastic as always, there always seems to be a bit of change so we can have something new. We were celebrating, our server asked, and then brought us out a special little desert for the occasion despite us not ordering one, really made the night special. Thank you. Would definitely recommend... More

Sunday lunch was great although one parsnip seemed a bit mean. Also not everyone likes red cabbage so maybe an alternative to that could be offered? Service impeccable as always - attentive but never overbearing. The singer was brilliant. A young lady with a beautiful voice. Was thoroughly enjoying her so was disappointed that she finished her set after what... More

We returned to The Grand Café for Sunday lunch a lovely building spacious interior. Live music was excellent. The four of us all ordered roast chicken it was superb. Corn fed chicken was succulent with roast potatoes, pigs in blankets, Yorkshire pudding and five vegetables. With a very good bottle of French Chardonnay the whole thing was a delight. £10.95....

A truly fabulous place for Sunday lunch. Great bar area... live singer who gave it nice atmosphere. The lunch was hot and very tasty. Great portions... and gravy to die for.... good value for money, but most of all fab service. James looked after us and was very attentive/professional and had a most charming manner! Will most definitely be back.

We had a family dinner here recently to celebrate my brother's birthday and I was very impressed with the level of service and the food. We had a three course set menu which I thought was great value. I had the goats cheese starter followed by pan fried hake. For dessert I had the chocolate yule log with vanilla ice... More

Dined here on 11th February 2017. Food excellent, staff excellent and very good value for money taking into account the sumptuous surroundings and the prices at the new restaurant chains in the watermark development. However, a 50 minute wait was far to long for the first course to arrive (fortunately, didn't have a starter) but had a wobbly coffee which... More

We booked a table in advance for an early Valentine's meal. The impression from website, trip advisor, outside and the name itself is 'Grand' but upon arrival we quickly realised it wasn't. Unfortunately booking a table at 7pm on a Friday evening was our first mistake because it was the middle of happy hour. The bar was very loud with... More

I held my hen do at the venue on Saturday 4th February, which involved an afternoon tea and an evening meal.  The whole day was fabulous, the food was great and all the colleagues at the Grand Cafe and the club downstairs, helped to make my day very special.  There is one particular member of staff that stood out from...
