“Another fantastic meal in a lovely atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

My husband and I purchased another website deal for this restaurant after previously being impressed.The deal on offer was a main course each and a glass of wine each.I chose the sausages and mash along with green beans,my husband went for the seared chicken supreme,both dishes could not be faulted,lovely wine,service was fantastic,engaging and attentive.Dessert menu came,I did fancy the cheeseboard but not at the hefty price tag of £9.50.All in all,a lovely night.

“Return visit was well worth while”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Having been previously with an Itison deal and were totally blown away with our experience we decided on a return visit and glad to say that the high standard of food and service we experienced on our first visit was maintained and I cannot speak highly enough of the service we got from Shelley " a little rain of sunshine" who was obviously enjoying working in the Tempus, as were all the staff we encountered.
The food was well presented and mouth watering and I was glad to see that the last feed back that I left suggesting that the bread/rolls could be warmed up had been implemented.
A big thank you to all the staff for a lovely experience and YES, I will be returning soon.

“Fantastic food in a lovely setting!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

My mum and I went here for a meal. It was an itison voucher that cost £18 and you got a main meal and a glass of wine each. This was not our first time and the food again was fantastic. My mum had a pasta dish and I had sirloin steak although I had to pay a supplement for it. The only downside for me was that the menu that you can choose from is very limited and I paid almost £7 extra for the steak but it was only a 6oz so quite small and the standard size on the menu is 8oz but apart from that it was great I could have licked the plate it was so tasty!!i would get this deal again and would also be happy to pay full price for the food.

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Went here on a 5pm deal, 2 courses with a bottle of wine for 2 @ £30 of the market menu. There was plenty of choice and all courses were very good. The staff were exceptionaly nice and very attentive without being in your face. We had a bit of a mix up with one of our main courses, however it was soon put right and we were given a glass of pink champagne for our trouble. Over all we had a very pleasant evening and will defiantly be back.
