I found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and after reading the reviews decided to give it a try for lunch on Valentines Day.
I was not disappointed at all. The food was excellent and the service was good (even if the students looked petrified).
I was a bit wary when we had to walk through the college to get to the lounge, but once in there it is just like any other restaurant and nicely set out.
I had Crayfish salad to start which was both tasty and well presented. I followed this with smoked haddock risotto which was exceptional. The only slight downside was the desert which was rice pudding spring rolls which I personally thought was a little lacking in flavour. The coconut ice cream that came with it barely had a coconut taste. I would have maybe put jam in the spring rolls along with the rice pudding.
Overall the food was excellent and I'm probably being too picky with the desert.
I will be recommending the Lounge to all my friends and family and will return next time I'm back up in the North East.
