Can't praise the Swiss Cottage enough. There was 20 of us for dinner and our individual orders were processed such that we were all eating at the same time. Food was excellent and good value, the staff were friendly and very helpful. Will certainly visit again.

Fayre and Square are to be complimented for making their pubs eating houses with table service. (If only) The idea of having a board asking for customer to wait to be seated is fine if someone is ever likely to attend to them. We visited on a Tuesday lunchtime. We waited at the arrival desk and stood like lemons with... More

We arrived just before 12.30 on a Thursday lunchtime. 2 adults and 3 children under 6 . We were promptly seated and drink order taken . Then it went wrong from there. Wrong drinks bought over , and a very long wait for the correct ones and our food order to be taken . 40 mins and very fractious children... More

Family visit. Have new food menu, much improved and very nice staff. Adam was our waiter for the evening and he was very helpful and cheerful. It's even better now you don't have to order at the bar! Will definitely go back, good value

We popped in for a family meal, as we all had the day to ourselves. Weather was rubbish, so no option but to sit inside - where we were placed in the corner, overlooking the pond/lake. Nice table. Took a while for a waitress to come and take our orders, like wise was a wait before the food came out.... More

We had two nice Beer's and waited a good while for our food, I had a Codfather a dish not on the two for one offer. The piece of fish was so over cooked I could have picked it up and smashed the plate it was on. The chip's were just oven chip's and the Pea's were rock hard. The... More
