Had an evening meal here just before watching Martha Reeves and the Vandellas. Head waitress was most helpful initially. Food ordering was slow, waitresses were non-communicative and stone faced, although the food was very good and flavoursome. Asked for a jug of iced tap water and received a plain jug of water and no glasses. With a bit of staff... More

This restaurant is in a unique location and serves great food. We recently enjoyed the 3 course Sunday lunch menu, which offered a good selection of choices at reasonable prices. Each course was presented to a high standard. The service was also very good, even though it was busy there were no delays serving the food.

Both were excellent, lovely and hot and great value. Went for a walk afterward through the gardens and down to... More

Turned up on the spur of the moment after walking up through the gardens and spotting the diners tucking into their Sunday lunches. Asked if a table was available as it was very busy and late in the service. Our waitress went and asked the chef and promptly returned to say that they could squeeze us in although they had... More

Half the menu not available and even the entire menu would have been limited. Service not great, left waiting without attention. Food itself was nice though. As i say, the concert next door after, was better !

As a group of friends we decided to all go for a Sunday lunch with our children for a catch up. Initially when booking we were going to be a table of 15, with 4 of these being children under the age of 2. We were told that there was not enough high chairs for all the children so may... More

By chance we managed to get a table at Princess Pavilion garden room, what a stunning venue, but the food is the real showcase. The chef is a culinary genius the way he marries flavours and textures. It was a plate of fresh seasonal delicious food. The staff were very courteous and made the whole experience a special one. Worth... More
