I recently came here to celebrate a birthday.

The décor and layout of the Exhibition is lovely and very modern, although the lighting above table 3 in the corner is atrocious – it was alright as it was by a window but, as it got dark, terrible - you couldnt really see the food you were eating. They have uplighters, but have failed to put one in this area so, when it came to reading the bill, everything looked okay but we had been overcharged by £4.00…WATCH OUT, they do not detail the drinks bill, you just see the amounts of each drink.... so check your bill before leaving, esp on a busy Saturday night! So points off here for value for money

We were unfortunately not asked once during our dinner if everything was okay, so points off for service here.

The food was VERY good – we had a very nice steak (gorgeous), a coq au vin (big portion and very tasty) and some BBQ ribs (again very delicious).

The bar area gets really noisy which can be heard in the restaurant and the acustics in the restaurant lend itself to a very very noisy environment....I wouldnt come here on a first date or for a romantic meal, as you'll be shouting across the table to each other lol

Despite my review, I would still recommend this place for a night out for dinner if you are local

After reading so many great reviews on TA I was really looking forward to a meal at the Exhibition but it just didn't turn out to be that great. The bread was slightly stale and the soup like warm which I didn't mention as we had waited a while for the starters to arrive and we were wanting to get out so didn't want to prolong our mains with returned starters. Nobody asked why I hadn't eaten the rest of the bread or half the soup on removing my plate from the table. The place was quiet and needed good background music to mask this. There was one loud local drinking and that's all we could hear the whole way through our meal. The food was average but the staff polite. We may visit again to give it another go, maybe we caught them on a quiet off day.

I have visited a couple of times since living in Godmanchester and always have very good food and friendly service. Had Mother's Day lunch and popped in with friends a few times. The steak was excellent and atmosphere is charming. Lovely hang out with friends and always bustling with families as well. Clean and classy standard whenever we visit. Parking on site is helpful. Enjoyed the live music. Cosy but can get a bit stuffy as well. Will definitely visit again.
Proudly Goddy !! :)
