“Lovely food and excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2011

We ate in the bar area for our lunch and the food was excellent, even the children's meal was excellent. We all enjoyed our meals and others around us were equally happy with theirs. The service was excellent. Will definately eat in their again when we next visit :)

“Cooked for the more Senior Customer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2010

An early dinner booked at the Burlington started with third rate service. The waitress happily watched us walk into and stand around an empty restaurant 10 minutes after it should have opened and it needed us to return to the reception where she was talking before she showed us to a table. The menus were given to each of us without any explanation of the chefs specials, soup of the day etc. The next time we saw anyone was when a waiter came to take the order and had to be sent away to fill in the variables on the menu, the sweets available etc. We laughed amongst ourselves on the table as the staff seemed to scatter into the kitchen so as not to have to meet the next diners.
The high percentage of retired customers was reflected in the way the food was prepared. Although overcooked by modern standards the food was tasty. The sweets were well presented but the strawberry pavlova had commercially produced and very dry meringues with little added except a few fresh strawberries. The fresh fruit salad was mainly apple with what appeared to be some tinned fruit in juice added. At over £4 this was distinctly disappointing. The bread and butter pudding was much the best choice. The service did improve and with the right choice, the food was acceptable. The white wines were over sweet and even the dry white ordered could not be described as fresh tasting.
With sea views, the high ceiling and generous proportion of the restaurant reflect its 1890’s design. If you like meat well done, slightly soft vegetables and traditional hot puddings the overall package is at a reasonable cost.
