We visited The Daffodil for lunch today. The service was impeccable and the lunch time 3 course meal with a glass of prosecco was not only delicious but a great price too. Can't wait to visit again.

We went for the bottomless brunch and wasn’t hugely impressed with the food or bottomless offer! Food was average and you have to wait till every member on the table has finished before top ups. We ended up ordering more as wasn’t working for us.

Been two Christmas Eve’s in a row and cannot praise the food, entertainment and staff more. Whilst the upstairs cocktail lounge can be crowded and a little slow service at peak times, it just allows all to take in the beautiful venue and entertainment. Food...More

They have some very good vegetarian options - I think if you talk to them at the time of booking about any allergies, they’ll be able to tell you if they can accommodate you
