“A never to be repeated experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

On arrival the reception area was dis-organised, overcrowded and devoid of staff to receive and locate guests despite advance booking. The restaurant was understaffed by admittedly friendly staff but naive, untrained and unprofessional.
The first course, barely acceptable, took ages to arrive. One member of our party who did not eat meat ordered 'mock' duck with pancakes to go with the other diners duck with pancakes. This course was brought to our table, the crispy duck shredded at our table and the waitress then ordered to take it to another table; not acceptable for the diners at the other table. In addition the 'mock' duck failed to arrive with our crispy duck and was completely inedible, devoid of any semblance of taste of any sort let alone pretend duck. All the dishes on the set menu for the meat-eaters had the same pervading stale-oil flavour, the so-called chicken element appearing preformed, reheated and completely unidentifiable. The prawn dish contained stale pineapple chunks tasting musty, soft and rubbery. All the ingredients seemed to be of very poor quality.The service was so slow that we were there for more than two hours. All-in-all not a place we would ever re-visit or recommend to anyone.

“Unbelievable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

I have eaten here a few times and it's always been good. Last week I even tried a takeaway and my whole family were impressed again. I have to say that one of the previous comments...."Have eaten here on lots of occasions & each time we leave we always say that wasn't much good" .....what an idiot! If it isn't much good what an earth brings him back there. An ulterior motive I would hazard a guess. Numpty!

“Always reliable.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Another good take away meal - always reliable, hot and freshly cooked, never too long to wait with friendly service and reasonable prices too.

“Very good take away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

I've only tried the Four Seasons for a take away and have to say it was very good.

Went for the fixed menu for two.

Fresh, hot and full of hand prepared ingredients ...

Excellent - well done

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

Just been to the New Four Seasons with some friends for a birthday meal. The food was fantastic the staff and service also very good. We had a set meal for 4 and there was a great variety and lots of it. Will be returning without a doubt.
