“Wedding Weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

Restaurant serves good selection of A la Carte Menu. Staff are attentive and pleasant. Service was slow on Sunday evening waited 35 minutes before being able to eat even though we booked a specific time. Breakfast was self service on Sunday and Monday (not our choice, we like breakfast cooked on request). Adequate selection of continental breakfast. Our table was not laid for breakfast with full requirements (marmalade missing).

“Great Sunday evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

I was with 3 friends for a birthday celebration meal on Sunday 17 August and pleasantly surprised at how busy the restaurant was for a Sunday evening. The food was presented beautifully and tasted divine. I chose the crab starter which was delicious followed by cod which came in two styles one steamed and one batter fried - simply mouth watering! For dessert I chose apricot and again that was scrumptious. The service is professional and the restaurant atmosphere is smart and friendly. At £25 per head including half a bottle of wine each, we were very pleased and would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

Who have eaten here recently so expectations were high and we were not disappointed the food and service were out of this world the the flavours are amazing loved the little extras espically the gin and tonic taster at the start we couldn't fault anything we are at the square in London it was as good as if not better than there the lawns is a must visit.
