Special occasion with good service

We came for our anniversary dinner with a couple of friends and were made to feel welcome and received good service. We were not rushed and the food was all delicious. We had some drinks outside, which is a nice area and was a nice start to the evening in the warmer weather (we went in September... read more

I visited Linden House for my work Christmas meal with 5 colleagues. We were greeted by glasses of prosecco at the bar before being seated for our meal. I am always slightly dubious having to pre order my food from a set menu but I was very happy with the food that was served, particularly the caramelised Apple rice pudding... More

Coats not taken on arrival, ushered directly to table, took 30 mins to take our drinks order. Cold mains, which when sent back, only to receive again cold some 20 mins later. Seafood platter for mains is a hash of the starters on offer. Overpriced, bland food and service which spoiled a special occasion meal that our dear friends had... More

The food is outstanding, it has to be the best offered in Stansted. We had the Seafood Mixed Grill and the Beef Shin for main. It was fresh, well cooked and very tasty. Both meals were amazing, and the fish was cooked perfectly - not an easy task. The service was excellent too, the waitress being professional and friendly, and... More

Wanted to write and say thank you for a wonderful 16th birthday afternoon tea for my daughter at Linden House. The staff looked after us very well, the table was decorated beautifully and made it feel very special.

My friend booked a table for 4 to celebrate her birthday and as busy Mums who rarely get the chance to have a night out we were all really looking forward to our meals. Unfortunately our experience was very short and unpleasant. After we were shown to our table in a deserted dining room, only another couple there, we were... More

This was my first trip to the Linden House and I was very pleasantly surprised by the beautiful décor and amazing food. We particularly enjoyed the select menu and thought the food was very good value for money. The waiter was attentive and overall the service was very good. I would definitely revisit and probably reserve some time to also... More

We were a lunch party of 8, aged from 15 to 89, celebrating a birthday. Service was polite but a little brusque. Our food, which took over 45 mins to arrive was lukewarm . We had the same experience as a previous commentator. A smear of parsnip mash, cold slate plates, a triumph of design over the basic fact of... More

Disaster. On the Sunday before Christmas seven of us booked for lunch. We expected the restaurant to be busy with a festive atmosphere. There were no decorations in the restaurant and only one other booking for four people. Perhaps that should have sounded the alarm bells. Most of us ordered Christmas lunch but when the food arrived everything was cold.... More
