Slow service

Have used this rest several times over the last few years and found it good. However this last time was very disappointing....the service was very slow and the food was average.

Inn on the lake never fails to disappoint. Food is always fantastic and the staff can not do enough for you. Always the kids first choice! Highly recommend.

So disappointed with the service this evening. Had to change our order TWICE as meals became unavailable, had to wait far too long, we have never had to walk out of a pub before but the children were just too hungry to wait any longer. Shame, as we come to you often, and the children had asked to come to... More

There is something not quite right about the place. I cannot put my finger on it. Perhaps the layout? The staff were nonchalant and the one and only dish I wanted on the menu was finished (even though the place was empty. The food was nothing special and all frozen (not fresh).

Had a lovely solo meal here. Pub is nicely decorated, staff very friendly. Plenty of places to sit and be comfortable, and I didn't feel out of place being on my own. I had a duck salad that was absolutely delicious, and a really great choice of wines. Would definitely recommend.

Went there, for the first time, with my son and Granddaughter. Terrific experience. Service was cheerful, efficient and attentive from the moment we walked in. Food was varied and delicious, as well as reasonably priced. Very, very enjoyable. Would recommend to anyone. Very child tolerant and high chairs available.

Had a great dinner here a few months ago, but was disapointed with this visit. Took over 20 minutes to make a drinks order and then a further 15 to recieve them. Ordered 2 roast dinners both missing stuffing but no mention of this by the staff.

Thank Nicola A
