I visited The Lounge with a couple of friends and we all had an amazing evening! The food was delicious and well priced, my steak was cooked to perfection! All the staff were very friendly and welcoming which made us enjoy our night even more :) Also, fab entertainment! We will definitely be returning!

Went to the lounge last night and I have to say firstly my food was very nice and the entertainment was very good. However, I think the price was too high for the food which was an everyday choice nothing out of the ordinary. There was no table drinks service. The singer started before we had finished eating and was... More

We arrived at 19.30 and was shown to our reserved table. We ordered drinks and was handed the evening menu that was not extensive but fine.you could order 2... More

Just so disappointed. Visited here often. Popped in Sunday for lunch and left after sitting waiting for attention for 15 minutes . Having a menu plonked on your table and then just being ignored while staff chatter to one person at bar is unacceptable. No " would you like a drink?" Or even a run through of the Sunday lunch....

Hi Elaine, I am extremely upset to be reading this. I have spoken with the two staff members that were front of house last Sunday & they have been told that this is NOT acceptable. Both girls would like to apologize to you in person & as you know me personally you are aware that all of our customers are... More

It was the really hot September day and we called the restaurant to book an outside table. The girl on the phone was so cheerful and helpful and we looked forward to our dinner. When we arrived the restaurant was virtually empty. Our table was reserved outside on the terrace as requested and the bubbly girl looking after the place... More
