Not needing much lunch after a hearty Premier Inn breakfast, I contemplated buying a sandwich from Tesco, but walked on. Told Valentes had closed, but this has mutated into a more lounge bar type place with probably more people in the evenings, especially on party nights. However I was greeted warmly and the other customer was sociable. I ordered a... More

I went to The Lounge for an evening meal with my sister for a "catch up" last night and the food and service was great. The staff were very attentive to our needs. We have both been to this restaurant many times before for breakfast too and it never disappoints. The Garlic King Prawns are to die for - I... More

Had another visit to The Lounge today for anniversary meal. The lamb shank was really delicious and well cooked, this was followed by a lovely vanilla cheesecake. The rest of the table were happy with their choices. Good value with a friendly atmosphere.

In these days of expected high quality service this restaurant was very disappointing. I ordered steak and asked if instead of the vegetables ( chips, fried onion rings, fried mushrooms and tomatoes), I could have a large salad instead. I requested a large salad twice. When the meal was brought out it had all the vegetables that I didn't want... More

I'm very sorry that you feel disappointed & I would like to get to the bottom of this as this is not our usual way to deal with customer requests. For me to do so I need to know when you visited The Lounge & an approximate time. I thank you for your co-operation in this matter. More

The whole experience was a delight, the food and entertainment were first class and and we had a great evening. Kelly and her husband have worked really hard to produce an excellent venue for...

We had the full Meze here and although it was good we have had better when travelling around Cyprus. The staff were good, went to a lot of trouble to explain their menu and were very friendly. The restaurant seemed to lack atmosphere but the bar area seemed lively.

We had been a number of times before but this visit corresponded with our 43rd wedding anniversary. Bobby Brown, of Hot Chocolate fame was excellent. I'm not sure what he takes with his chocolate but we have booked for his return in December with our wider family! The food was excellent. We both started with grilled Haloumi. We both had... More
