Albeit only for a short time, while some other customers left and we eventually were seated together. We didn't order starters, we ordered mains,... More

The interior of The New Lanterns is stylish, the service not friendly but distant compared with previous Owner and his wife. Eating out should be a pleasant & memorable occasion. New Lanterns does not provide this. No greeting at the at the door or leaving. Understand the son now tries to run is establishment. He does not have the charisma... More

Now I think that is bad service for a start. Then whilst we are sat at the table our drinks came... More

After a large family gathering we went to Lanterns to celebrate. With a group of 20 people. The service was unbelievable, all meals cooked to order and all meals came out together. service was fantastic and the quality of the food was faultless. Thankyou again.
