Although the lounge does not look very formal from the outside, the interior is lovely, food delicious, and staff friendly! I ordered a grill chicken salad which was perfectly seasoned and dressing very tasty and my mother the dipping platter with warm fresh bread. Don't judge a book by its cover

Staff seemed friendly , but enjoyed their own conversations more than serving. Good Coffee , decided not to... More

What a great venue for a private event, the food was delicious, the staff where extremely attentive from the offset and nothing was a problem. I really could sit back and enjoy the party as it was organised so well. The staff go that extra mile to satisfy their customers and I would merrily organise another event, and will be... More

Went to the Lounge for Sunday lunch today with my wife and friends. The Restaurant was very busy. The Staff found us a table straight away. The staff Kes, Rob and Candice provided excellent service on a busy period, with nothing being too much of a problem. The food was excellent as usual thanks to the kitchen staff. Would recommend...

Went to The Lounge on Saturday in a group of 18 to celebrate my birthday. The meal was good, honest, no nonsense, beautifully cooked and sensibly priced. The service was excellent despite the restaurant being full to overflowing. The staff couldn't do enough to look after us. This is one of the few places locally that you can enjoy a... More

We visited The Lounge on a Saturday night for a 59th birthday celebration. There was over 40 over us sitting down to eat. We preordered our food, paid in advance and sat down just before 8pm. The staff were very well organised and the food was really good. The portion sizes are big. At 9pm a girl started singing and... More
