21 meals served on time and correctly to each person. The oldest was 76 and the youngest was 16 - and everyone in between all said they loved the food, the staff and situation. We all had a great time and commend Christian and all the staff for their hard work.

We ate in the restarant twice and both times had a superb meal with very attentive staff, can thoroughly recommend the chicken skewers and also the hake, both absolutely delicious and beautifully presented.

...since I had a Fillet steak as good as this. I'd forgotten how much I loved The Cumberland Hotel kitchen. Just heavenly! If you love your steak then you HAVE to try here. Simples! Kind regards, Ray Fearnley.

We had dinner here one evening and as soon we walked in, I fell in love with this place. Decor and background music created such a relaxing atmosphere, I could have stayed there for hours doing absolutely nothing. Food was delicious. The staff was a little dull though, not very engaging but still efficient.

Me and my girlfriend had the most amazing meal of our life, as soon as we came inside the restaurant you could feel the chill atmosphere in the room, very politely Carla the waiter sat us down, always waiting for a sign to come over to serve us (less than 30 seconds), all the time i felt looked after she...
