“Great service, poor food on my last visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

I have eaten at Tempus on numerous other occasions and found the food to be good. However I was disappointed on my last visit. The restaurant was full, I was eating alone and they very kindly let me eat in the bar area rather than wait. The food was though sadly lacking, a poor steak with very few chips which were somewhat over cooked. I will say though that the service in the restaurant is always very good and a friendly staff who take an interest in you. If you do visit, make sure you book a table when you check in as it does get very busy.

“Great food in a great restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Dined from the pre-theatre menu, Wood Pigeon & Salmon En Croute were our choices that night. A wider choice is available from their main menu. If going at weekends I believe its advisable to book as it gets quite busy.
Also as a hotel resident, this is where breakfast is served.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Booked this restaurant through 5pm, excellent value for money. Food good and included a glass of wine. Sweets not too pricey either. Food presented in a nice way and tasted delicious. Nice surroundings. We went as a party of 2 couples and had a lovely evening. Have already booked to go back.
