Lovely food and relaxed atmosphere

I arranged a lunch for a group of friends at As You LIke it and we had a lovely time. The decor and layout are well designed and the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Best thing is the quality of the food however. There is a wide choice and all portions were of a good size. Many of the... read more

Restaurant was overhyped. Service was very poor, being rushed off the table before we'd been sat down (being told we had 2 hours before the table was needed again) and then very slow to be served, meaning that we could not order dessert as there were only 15 minutes left until we needed to leave. Food was okay, described a... More

We had a fantastic night celebrating our daughters 21st birthday. We booked the beach hut VIP area and there was approx. 30 of us and the room was perfect for photographs, having bubbles and cake. We had delicious canapes and bubbles on arrival and we were so happy that we could decorate the room with balloons and banners. All your... More

I really loved my trip to As you like it.. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming.. The place itself is really nicely designed inside and has a nice atmosphere to it, too. The starters in particular were amazing, although they set the bar very high and we didn't end up enjoying the mains quite as much because of... More

I really enjoyed As You Like It. We went for my sisters' 21st birthday and were there for most of the night. We had a section of the bar roped of for us with bubbly and canopies on arrival, and then went upstairs to eat. Food was very tasty (I had the mafia burger) and extremely filling.

We visited AYLI on a Saturday afternoon and although the drinks were lovely, the service was sometimes slow. The food, especially the starters of the king prawns and sliced beef salad were delicious however the chips which came with the main were tastless and 'scrappy'. Another plus point is the gluten - free menu which offered a wide range of... More
