My friend and I paid another visit to Lakeside after we went last year and promised to return when I was next in the area. The weather was pleasant enough and we remembered sitting on the terrace overlooking a beautiful ornamental pond where you could watch dragonflies skimming the surface an admire the huge koi in the water, we recalled...

I received a confirmation email but on our arrival my booking hadn't been received ? Luckily, we were able to be seated. The service was very adequate and the food was perfectly acceptable (most...

Had a sparkling tea for two as a birthday present went on the 8th August. This is a beautiful setting lovely gardens and great inside. Such a shame that service was dreadful. Had a lovely glass of Prosecco after being seated, the we waited for about 15 minutes then our tea arrived on a 3 tiered cake stand. Sandwiches were... More

Visited the restaurant for afternoon tea. This building is a striking bit of architecture: a Victorian pumping station. The interiors are just as striking, with high ceilings and the sort of decor that reminds me of an English Country House. The staff were friendly and very efficient. The afternoon was fine, but it didn't impressive me. The sandwiches were a... More

We had driven past many times and always commented on how beautiful it was and that we should go. Well we finally did, and it was beautiful, the lake and seating area by the lake is amazing and inside is very grand. The service was fab, quick and friendly although they didn't seem to have record of our online booking.... More

Arrived on time (19.30) so no bar time and offered a number of tables. As a date night it's excellent. Dim lighting and suitable for a date. We were never rushed and after the wine order eventually ordered one starter and the two mains. A Prawn cocktail starter (Yes its old but rarely seen these days so...) Pizza and chips... More

This place is beautiful, both inside and out. The gardens are relatively small but lovely to have a walk around. Unfortunately it was raining when we went but I can imagine it would be lovely to sit beside the lake on a nice day. The filter in the lake needs cleaning though as it's significantly blocked up and just overflowing... More

I went to this place with my cousin on a spa day treat, the staff were very polite and helpful, we was offered drink while we waited for our turn in the spa. The facilities were great, but the most amazing was the food, we had Ciabata bread with roast chicken and onions in side, served with a lovely salad... More

We went on a Groupon offer and were pleased, though we did have some trouble getting a booking. Sandwiches etc were much as expected and very nice. Pleasant room, friendly staff and good service. No complaints.

My lovely wife treated me to a spa day for my birthday. We haven't been to the Lakeside before, despite only living 5 minutes from it. We had a Groupon deal which gave us access to the gym, spa area and lunch for £21 each. The building is a Victorian pumping station, it has character and the grounds were really... More
