“lunch out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

menu average and needing updating, has been the same for years. when this place first opened, service was impeccable, but sadly that wore off. the staff change week by week, no one seems to stay long. there are twin sisters working there, that are the only regular staff. change your menu its boring !!!! plus dont botjer with the open sandwiches, they are rubbish.

“Good Food, Average Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

My sons Birthday Party, Saturday night. Place was very busy, not enough staff. We were sitting at the large table, few yards from very noisy extractor. Food arrived promptly and we all enjoyed it. I go to Alfred's on average every two months and never complained about their meals. Last night they were rushed of their feet and unfortunately it did show in lack of service. We were not asked if everything was OK, I had to chase the waitress to pay the bill. Little disappointed. Hopefully it was one off as we will be dinning there again in two weeks time with friends.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

tried the early bird but starter came with salad brown around edges!! come on Alfreds!! to mess up a salad is a crime! Main was cooked nice and hot, chicken cooked perfect.
Meal should have been better for the price!

“Exceptional Quality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013

I went here as part of a large party of 20 people, and I must say that although there was a small amount of delay in everyone getting their meal at roughly the same time (which in part was down to the fact that people had forgotten what they had pre ordered) the Quality and the quantity of food was fantastic. As you walk upstairs to the Restaurant you are greeted by two huge fridges that contain meat in one and fresh fish in the other, and then you choose what you want and the chefs prepare and cook it. I really cannot speak highly enough of the standard of ingredients used and the price is exceptional value for money. Well Done Guys!

“mixed bag”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

its a bit busy here on weekends, not a great idea to order at the bar but the food came out quite quickly and was hot.

The meal was ok but a bit expensive for what you get.
Larger groups of people did have a long wait and were served at different times.
Probably would go back and use the early bird menu but on a week night instead.
