We were happy with the initial service but once the food arrived we didn't have anyone come to the table, which was a little disappointing as some... read more

Had a business dinner here last week. 4 people. Arranged through hotel reception when I checked in. Thursday night. Woman at reception said she would check availability as it may be fully booked and call me. Called and confirmed 10 minutes later. Had a laugh when we arrived; restaurant had 2 tables occupied with 6 guests and no more arrived... More

Went to Lab for a birthday dinner with a dear friend and it was brilliant. Staff were attentive without being overbearing. Food was brilliant. Wine selection was excellent and still decently priced for a fine dining restaurant. We didn't have dessert, but the chef kindly sent out some home made chocolates with a Happy Birthday message for us, which was... More

Really nice food personal service. Expensive over charged wine but most restaurants have that. Food was really delicious. It is very old school decor, tables were uncomfy but i think they like this look. We gave compliments to the chef for a gr8 meal.

The food and service was really great. The location was a short walk from the hotel we stayed in. I really enjoyed the tastes and flavours of the salmon dish I ordered. The vegetables were cooked to perfection and melded all the flavours together. The chips with aioli were a delicious side treat.
