Seven of us shared a meal here on a busy Saturday night, but the service was consistently efficient and friendly.

Went to Lanes to celebrate wedding anniversary. Staff v attentive without being intrusive. Food was nice although couldn't get preferred starter as they'd sold out. A little disappointed given we were eating at 20:00. Interesting dessert menu if a little pricey.

I have just had five days in Dorset and we took our hosts for a thank you meal at Lanes. We have been several times before and have always been pleased. It is a select establishment, where you can dress up or down, arrive with a bundle of children and still get a welcome. Between the four of us we... More

My friend, my sister & me booked afternoon tea at Lanes as recommended by a friend who used to work there. We arrived at 3.40pm where our drinks order was taken straight away before we had even sat down at our table. We asked to move outside as it hot inside and very sunny outside. Our 2 teas and a...

Every year my brother, sister and I meet up for a long lunch and a "catchup" together with our spouses / partners (6 of us in total). Lanes Restaurant is the best place to which we've been. The decor is bright, the restaurant and lounge are both spacious and furnishings are very comfortable. The service is efficient and sensitive. We... More

Had another enjoyable dinner at Lanes to celebrate a special Birthday. We love the setting and always enjoy drinks in the lounge beforehand and the relaxed atmosphere. The steak was really good. And up to usual high standards and the service was friendly and efficient. Looking forward to a menu change to try something new next time.

Had dinner here with friends on a Saturday night. We arrived early to have a drink beforehand, placed our order and were shown to our table bang on time. The restaurant is a rather high ceilinged affair which is modern and airy, but means that it is very echo-y too, especially when there is a large and noisy party there!... More

Food is good and served with a smile. Last I ate there was for a Christmas function - and they coped admirably!
