Whenever we have a special occasion I will always suggest The Daffodil....the building is just beautiful & we just enjoy being in the surroundings. Since being under new management, the staff are wonderfully enthusiastic & really do make you feel they want your evening to be a special one. I really don't think I would be able to do the... More

We booked for a family birthday. We had a lovely booth on the top floor. Unfortunately the air con had broken 2 days before our visit and it was stifling hot.

We've eaten at the daffodil a few times and chose it as somewhere to enjoy an adult only treat night out. It seems they have added more tables to the dining area, which means you literally can't pass between tables without either breathing in whilst contorting yourself or banging on a diners chair. Unfortunately the latter was mostly the case... More

This is just a really special place to visit. We came recently for an anniversary dinner and the service was excellent; polite and attentive. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is romantic and relaxed whist also being formal. Definitely worth paying a bit more to go here.

Two very old friends invited us to the Daffodil for afternoon tea. The meal was excellent with sandwiches, scones and cakes, and plenty of tea - we asked for a doggy bag and were given a rather smart box for this purpose. During the meal our friends mentioned the occasion was their 61st wedding anniversary, so we ordered champagne which... More

Love the venue but the food has never live up to it so thought we would give it another go as it has been taken over the venue is still great but the food is still nothing special and over priced will still probably go again hopefully it will improve

I made a reservation here as Lumiere was fully booked. We were pleasantly surprised by the exemplary service and the food was well prepared. I had the soufflé to start and the calves liver as the main. Portions are generous but not as pretty as Lumiere. The restaurant was busy so it was quite noisy but a very good evening... More

Totally unplanned visit. Stumbled over it and thought it would be worth a try. We had a half hour wait for a table (we hadn't booked) which was the perfect opportunity to make a start on the cocktail menu! Fantastic! Amazing venue, amazing food and amazing staff.

Thank Scottscott72
