“Didn't live up to the hype and surroundings”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Went to Silks Bistro & Champagne bar for our brothers birthday and was impressed with the surroundings and flamboyantly grand decor. In arriving to the restaurant we were eventually shown our table when a member of staff decided to take control and 'deal' with us. Once seated we were left at the table with no drinks menu or offer of a drink for well over fifteen minutes so we asked twice if we could get a menu. After drinks arriving half an hour into our evening we were again still waiting for a food order to be taken. It was a Saturday evening but we had an early reservation, the level of business was quiet and there seemed to be more than enough waiting and bar staff on but thy all seemed to be milling around busting themselves with what appeared to be nothing to do with waiting tables. Eventually one lovely pregnant waitress saw that we has been left for a while and attended to us although I don't believe we were a table in her area. She wa lovely and friendly unlike the other two ladies who had dealt with us who appeared to feel customer service or manners were beneath them. Food came and was not bad although for some of the pricing I would have been disappointed with a couple of dishes ordered by our party but that aside everyone enjoyed their meal. No one came back to the table to cler glasses, check if meal was ok or if we neede anything else and so I went to the bar myself to be told 'yeah we'll come to the table and take your order'. Ok. Waited and nothing. Went I the bar insisted I would order as waitresses must have been busy and was til the drinks would be bought to the table.......20minutes later that is. Again the restaurant still was not very busy. Same thing with waiting for the dessert menus, delivery and the bill. I have worked in restaurants mysel and I am aware if leaving sufficient time so as not to rush diners but this turned into well over 4 and a half hours. Overall I was definitely not known away and was slightly disappointed overall. Shame.

“"We stop serving at 9.0!"( but don't let this title put you off!)”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

There is nothing more infuriating when you arrive at a hotel restaurant, ask for a table and are greeted by a look at the watch and "we stop serving at .....". ! Hello, it's a hotel, surely one could expect the times of service to be a bit later than 9pm?
However, although it was 9.10, on enquiring with the chef if it was ok for us to be served he gave the thumbs up, and we were in! It's unusual but pleasing decor and is a good pre cursor for the food that was to follow. We have eaten here before and enjoyed it then which was why we we're keen to try it again. The two Polish waiting staff were exceptionally efficient, polite and pleasant, especially when my husband discussed with them the virtues of the Polish football team that knocked England out of the World Cup way back in the 70's!
We were mindful that the staff were taking our order after time so hopefully we ordered considerately and went straight for a main course. I ordered from the day's special menu, seafood penne, minus the chilli flakes, my husband ordered fish and chips. For me, one of the USP's of this restaurant is that you can see the chefs working so you know that the food you have ordered has been freshly cooked and the guys appear to enjoy what they're doing, and that certainly is reflected in the dishes that we chose. My seafood pasta was sublime! Plenty of seafood with a light sauce, the fish was cooked to perfection as was the pasta, a really enjoyable plate of food. The portion size also was spot on. My husbands fish was cooked just right in a light crispy batter, the chips as well were chunky and of excellent flavour. We didn't have dessert, not that we weren't tempted, but we were really content so there was no need to over indulge this time , but we have decided to return and maybe try a starter only, leaving room to have a dessert! Anyway that's for another day. To conclude, after a tad shaky start, an excellent meal, excellent staff, lovely setting thank you very much, we look forward to coming again, soon!

Thank you for your lovely comments about Silks Bistro and Champagne Bar. Having just been awarded a Rosette, we are very proud of our fresh and locally sourced dishes and agree that the open kitchen is a fantastic feature of the restaurant. In terms of our times for last orders, as we come into the busier peak Summer season we alter our last order time to 10 pm on every evening of the week. Currently our last orders are 9pm on weekdays and 10 pm on weekends to allow for the varying amount of business at this time of year. Saying this, our timings are due to change in the next few weeks and we are very happy to accommodate guests who arrive to dine after the last order time where possible. I very much look forward to welcoming you back in the future and can highly recommend a starter and a dessert as a great light meal in Silks. Thank you again for your comments which have been greatly received. Kind regards, Silks Bistro and Champagne Bar.
