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!

the team were given a room to meet which was warm and comfy, led to a bright modern dining area with lovely food. the only slightly less than positive feedback was about portion size and a little salty, however, mine was gorgeous . following the meal we returned to the room with comfy sofa's for coffee, perfect. Toilets are very... More

A really pleasant hotel, staff all very friendly and helpful, comfortable rooms with good facilities. Meal for a large group of us, portion sizes did seem to vary depending on what was ordered, but all very good quality

We really liked the restaurant, it was very welcoming and had a good ambiance. The menu was varied and seemed to cater for most tastes. We certainly made excellent choices for all three courses and when combined with the very friendly and efficient service from the staff, we came away fully satisfied and hoping to return soon.

The ambiance in this restaurant is fabulous. Glass frontage mixed with the old stone of the building certainly gives you the wow factor. There are also terraces outside the restaurant for eating outside. The interior is light and airy with nicely spaced tables. We had lunch and found the menu varied and very well priced for the standard of the... More

We have eaten here for lunch (£14 for two courses) twice in quick succession. The first time pretty good the second rather disappointing. First time lovely mussels in a cream sauce followed by steak and bernaise, both great apart from steak seved on a bread board (horrible) and very good value. Second time a very tasteless goats chees salad followed... More
