We always have a lovely meal and enjoy the live music over the weekends. The garden is spectacular and the kids love it!

This restaurant is always busy and it is imperative to make a booking to avoid disappointment. The new owners have kept the good quality of the meals and the staff are well trained. Front of house keeps an eagle eye and ensures that everything runs smoothly. Once they have settled in, I'm sure they will be smiling too.

My husband and I had a lovely romantic lunch. Seated right by their wood burning fireplace (it was a cold day), with beautiful views of their fabulous garden, we had excellent, friendly service, delicious food of generous portions and great coffee. Wonderful atmosphere, stunning decor, friendly and gracious service.

We have been to van Loveren a few times before and truly love the setting. This time we decided to try out the Christina's. It wasn't bad, but there was just nothing special about it, the service was average and the food was okay. Well presented, but a bit bland. If you're in the area its still a good place... More

We used to love coming here. I took my wife there last Sunday for our 40th anniversary - with friends, - only to discover that the restaurant had just changed hands. Now, I can understand that it takes a bit of time to settle in, but surely a pizza is simple enough to make? I ordered a new item because... More

Having previously had terrible service it was with some reluctance we returned. What a turnaround since we were last there, although the restaurant was full service was good, the food was also great, our kids shared a pizza and we had the gourmet burgers which were well cooked and very tasty.

We had not been to Van Loveren for many years and remembered with pleasure the many wine tastings and sweetcorn fritters ...... The new wine tasting centre and shoppe is brilliant - modern but not ostentatious - well done. Christina's.

We had an excellent service in a beautiful garden setting, with some water sprinkled onto us to fight against the heat. The food was very tasty and wonderful prepared.
