Booked table for two, for 6pm. Beautifully decorated throughout for Christmas, especially the tables. Lovely setting and very warm and inviting with the log burner going. Staff very friendly, welcoming and efficient. I had scampi to start and chicken in a creamy sauce with bubble and squeak for main course. Both absolutely delicious, perfectly cooked and full of flavour. My... More

I went in to lakeside last week for lunch and had the seafood linguine which is delicious and only £5.50 which I think is very reasonable. The food is always good and you can tell that they use quality ingredients. They have a standard menu for the daytime and an ever changing evening menu written up behind the counter. The... More

Our first meal in Lakeside will be our last, food was turkey roast potatoes etc, it was dry and lacked taste, vegetables were adequate. The decoration was good, warm surroundings, waitress was pleasant...Price was excessive for what was eaten compared to other places we have eaten in at a third of the cost and tasting much better. Value for money... More

I have been visiting this place for 5 years and it has gone from strength to strength. It is Perfect for a coffee and a cake however the full menu is not at all what you would expect, it's restaurant standard. The lunchtime tapas style dishes aren't Spanish they are more starter sized portions off the menu. On my recent... More

You wouldn't expect a restaurant of this quality in this location. It's lovely inside, and offers a surprisingly good array of fresh, tempting dishes. We chose the "tapas deal"....(3 tapas selections for £12). The portions are larger than traditional tapas, so we were full up and satisfied with our lunch. Good food, perfectly cooked, served and presented with care. Well... More

We attended a wedding reception here recently and everything was perfect. The tables were beautifully dressed, and what a setting by the lake! The food was excellent and they provided me with a lovely vegan meal - what a treat. The proprietors and staff were great, and we had a wonderful time. Thank you.

Several years ago, we called in to find just another greasy spoon, not anymore! Caught out by a shower we wandered in looking just for a warm drink, the aroma of good food however was just too good to miss. We looked at the specials and we were really impressed, we ordered, selected drinks and our food, cooked fresh was... More

Finally got around to visiting the Lakeside reading all of the good reviews and it didn't disappoint. Only just missed out on 'Excellent' as the starters were not quite as good as the mains. The restaurant is in a pleasant location in the park and inside they haven't crammed the tables together like some. The starters we had were the... More
