The food was just amazing! It didn't take too long to come out and the customer service was lovely! The price was quite pleasant and not at all over priced. We were very happy with it! Highly recommended👍🏻 would go back to eat there even if we weren't staying at the restaurant!

Both meals and service were fantastic - we'll definitely be back! Our table of 8 all had wonderful meals, the staff were friendly and efficient, and the atmosphere was great. A lovely experience all around.

I had the worst chips I've ever eaten this week. I know chips aren't a healthy option but these were terrible and not what you have served in the past. Some twice fried, heavily battered, overcooked rubbish for the bin.

I came in for lunch with a pre-booked group of 25 people, and was pleasantly surprised that I and my tablemates had our meals within 10-15 minutes. (Unfortunately, four of the 25 had to wait for over three quarters of an hour). My chicken sandwich with chips and salad was lovely (especially good chips), and all the other meals I... More

Unfortunately, while we loved staying at Seymours on Lydiard Street, we can't be as positive about the meal we had in their restaurant / bar. The waitress was initially friendly, and the starter we shared was OK, but the main courses both I & my wife were served were absolutely terrible. We made the mistake (I believe) of not choosing...

My husband and I recently had dinner at Seymours & both meals were just about perfect. Mine was Herbed Lamb fillet on celeriac mash with roasted beetroot, carrots & potatoes and was both delicious and felt good for you. Husband said his porterhouse with mushroom gravy, salad & chips was fantastic. Couldn't manage desserts as meals quite substantial but the... More

My wife and I had dinner here for something different on a Monday night, and we're both glad we did. My Porterhouse, Medium Rare with Mushroom sauce, was cooked perfectly and was delicious. The sauce was rich and flavourful with full tender mushroom and the chips and salad both very nice as well. My wife's Lamb shoulder with roasted vegetables... More

We decided to have a meal out and to try somewhere new. Glad we went here and will return. Better half enjoyed veal scaloppine followed by chocolate & orange pudding. I had lamb loin followed by pear n pistachio cake with fresh double cream. Both meals were very nice though the Shiraz was a little heavy. Ambience was good even... More

We ate at this restaurant two nights running as we were staying at the hotel Seymours on Lydiard. They offered an excellent selection, all very tasty and at very reasonable prices. Service very obliging. We were able to sit by the fire which was lovely. Must be popular as they ran out of their "special" dessert and we had booked... More
