This is the second time my wife and myself have been taken here for Sunday lunch. A very nice and roomy restaurant serving a good lunch with a fine choice of food. I very much look forward to our next visit to the Grey Lady.

After getting seated outside and being prepared to stay we left after seeing the menu. One staff member just glared at us on entry and said nothing in greeting, although another next to her was helpful in finding us a table outside. However, the vegetarian choice was really poor, and there was no welcoming feeling for first-time visitors. It seemed... More

I have visited The Grey Lady many times over the years but this was a new venue for most of our party of 11. Everyone was impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of the waiting staff. Service was good but unhurried even on a busy Sunday afternoon. Choice of food was comprehensive and no-one was disappointed. Wine was reasonable price... More

I visited here for my birthday, the 2nd time I've been here. As usual staff are polite, helpful and smart (one was wearing trainers though which I think was a little bit bad considering the style of restaurant). Food is fantastic. Well worth the price paid as all in all it is just a wonderful place.

We came here for my Grandparents 50th Wedding Anniversary yesterday afternoon. The service was fantastic, I could not fault it. Working in a restaurant myself, I watched the staff carefully and have to say they were very polite and happy to help. The food was cooked to perfection. I had the 'Pan Roast Cod' - some slight alterations to the... More

What a shame! been here loads of times for special meals as it felt... special! Not this time though. Food was well above average but not impressive but service was truly appalling. Well staffed but with a totally lesser caliber of staff than before, this place has always excelled in making you feel that they cared. Today we had young... More
