Came here with my family and grandchildren. Very disappointed with both the service and the food. The ambience was disappointing and the staff seemed disinterested. Somewhere we will not be returning to.

Six of us had a Christmas meal last night. The food was excellent and the staff were delightful. I visit this restaurant quite regularly and am never disappointed. I was expecting the service to suffer due to the large numbers that were being catered for but was amazed that everything ran like clockwork. To achieve this level of food and... More

I have read the negative review and can not disagree strong enough. Visit and make your own mind up, you won't be sorry... More

A group of us went for a Christmas meal, served by competent waitresses in the conservatory. There was another group in at the same time. All of us were served in a timely and friendly fashion. The food was good to excellent and nicely presented. It was good value at 3 courses for around£25 including crackers, wine and party poppers.... More

Hi Fiona Really glad you enjoyed your meal with us and a shame it was tainted at the end by misunderstanding. For clarity to other guests. Our party menu food is not our standard menu items so all meals are cooked to order specifically for that party. We therefore advise organisers that we need at least 5 hours notice of... More

We have always enjoyed our time at Martins Pond. The staff are welcoming and the food always good. My husband and I frequently go to Martins Pond as it is located very near to where we live. I also visit it often with a friend for a good evening and chat.

Visited recently for Sunday lunch. Drinks order taken promptly although one drink didn't arrive without prompting. Decent choice of food, with child size portions of some mains available and a statement on the menu that some of the mains were gluten free options - although our waitress didn't know which ones were gluten free without checking. Food appeared to be... More

We love Martin Pond as it's a friendly restaurant with a varied wonderful menu, with long term staff that are attentive and friendly. They are brilliant with children and can't do enough to make sure everything goes well and everyone is happy.
