I visited here with a group of girlfriends for birthday celebrations and was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant has this really lovely warm lighting which makes it feel really cozy. There was a lot to choose from (not so much for our vegan guests) and we...More

My girlfriend stated at Lifehouse Spa January 2018 and wanted to eat somewhere other than the spa's underwhelming restaurant. A quick Google search found Avenue Bistro and we really couldn't have asked for better. I can't remember our dishes but we chose a few smaller...More

We had lunch here and it was superb, the staff were outstanding and very attentive. I had smoked salmon and beetroot risotto which was cooked to perfection. Lovely surroundings decorated simply but very tastefully. Very relaxing atmosphere. We would definitely be going back.

Absolutely first class - steak medallions / turkey, plus all the trimmings - five courses all delicious! Service was also first class. It was a real, pleasurable, experience.

There were a couple of vegetarian options in the starters and main courses. But I feel pretty sure that if you were to ring ahead of your meal they would be able to provide some choices. They are very friendly and helpful.

Ridiculous. Who are you to say where I ate, what I ate, how I was served or whether I received value for money. All comments were true.
