Had a great lunch with the family over the Easter weekend. Lovely food and helpful staff who went out of their way to accommodate my daughters gluten free diet. We'll be back!

We had a lovely Sunday Lunch at Pontland Park this Easter Sunday. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The attention is second to none and the food is superb. I have a gluten and lactose intolerance but it is sorted out with the minimum of fuss. Congratulations it is not our first visit and it certainly will not... More

Really lovely, well cooked and well presented food with great waiter service. We had breakfast there and evening meals and don't think we've had better.

On paying at the end the guy serving barely spoke to me let... More

This is not the high standards we aim... More

I took my teenage niece here for afternoon tea and was so pleased we chose here. The restaurant is relaxed with a nice choice of table and chair styles. Service was excellent and we had a lovely range of sandwiches, scone and desserts with ample jam and cream. Additional tea was provided at no extra cost. This was very affordable... More

Very nice restuarant with a lovely ambience. The staff were so courteous and polite but best of all was the food which was absolutely delicious and couldn't be faulted in any way.
