We booked Lanes restaurant for my 30th birthday meal years past has always been great food, a brilliant atmosphere and lovely setting. Where did it all go wrong?? We were asked when booked to pre order for our table of 13 which was absolutely fine. We emailed a comprehensive list of what everyone wanted. We were asked to be seated... More

Honestly the worst place I've ever eaten, terrible food, service was pretty poor also, was absolutely appalled by my mix grill main course, just a load of poorly cooked bone dry meat slapped on my plate with a bowl of chips on the side, didn't even ask how I wanted my steak cooked, was all tough and dry. I've genuinely... More

I arranged afternoon tea here for my mums birthday. I was rather underwhelmed to be seated in a dingy, very poorly decorated lounge area, I thought we had just been sat there whilst they made our table up but when they brought the stands in I realised that where we had to eat, off very low sofa with a coffee...

Went here for an evening meal to catch up with friends before the new year. They have. A spacious car park. From the moment we arrive we were made to feel special. Our coats were taken from us and hung up in a warm cupboard. The bar staff went out of her way to make me a special cider adding... More

We had arrived in West Coker looking for a traditional pub lunch. Both pubs, although displaying open for lunch signs, were indeed closed. A chance visit to the post office pointed us to a laneway behind the main street to Lanes' brasserie. Part of Lanes' hotel, spa and bar, the brasserie is situated within a glass box that has been...

Went there for a family lunch between Xmas and New Year. Menu was just about adequate apart from the Turkey stew with solid dumplings which I would not have served at home. We were booked for 1pm and shift changed at 3pm. Service went from barely adequate to very poor. They had to be asked to serve coffee and then... More

I have been to Lanes on several occasions before and have had a great meal. Unfortunately the food side of things seemed to have slipped when there is a big party to cater for. Starter was good (liver parfait), main was turkey and it was pretty dry (no extra gravy, even though we asked) and I had cheese for desert... More

Went to Lanes on Saturday night for a Christmas party. What a great night, excellent service - no delay between courses and all meals brought out together, food was excellent & couldn't fault the service at all. The disco was a great addition to the night with a brilliant assortment of music, from the old classics to the more up... More

Food was ok, was expecting more. Was clearly heated up, but must of been sat around for some time. Friend said their pate was... More
