“Girls Lunch”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Had lunch here yesterday with 4 friends, food was excellent Onion rings to die for and the staff
very nice and helpful, we had a good chat and did not feel under pressure to hurry. We enjoyed so much that we have booked another date at the end of the month. As for the previous persons review if you cannot get in because people have booked in advance, to me that would make me phone first............... and it would also make me think must be good to be booked out. You can never please everyone

“No food available”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Dropped into the restaurant on Saturday at 6.15pm for something to eat but where told that due to two large tables arriving later in the evening no food was available till 9pm.

A bit dissapointing for a restaurant that advertises serving food all day (when it suits them).

“Excellent food! Shall be back!”
Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Three of us had an evening meal here a few days ago...ok the order was simple...just a cheese burger with onion rings but this was delicious! The best burger I have ever had. The service was good, and the atmosphere chilled. Really enjoyable evening out. My wife has since been back with friends and had a similarly good experience. Thanks

“Especially good”
Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

Excellent food and service. Privately owned and has a good chef who produces consistently good food. Excellent venue for a coffee or lunch and dinner. Nice menus with plenty of choice. Owner Chris is out to impress and I am glad to say he is getting it right. Highly recommended

“Yet Again...... SUPERB!”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

This will be my 6th visit to JOHNSTON'S and yet again they surpassed all expectations!
I was with two friends this time and one of them had not eaten there before, he just loved it.

I have to say, the chicken ceasar salad I ordered, has to be the best presented salad on a plate I have ever seen and as for the taste....awesome. I asked if my chicken could be served warm on the sald and this was dine for me no problem, staff are just great in this restaurant.....I am taking a friend from Liverpool there for lunch in a week or so and she is a really fussy eater....we will see if we can turn her head around to the fact that restaurant food is a 'good experience' in Johnstons!

One thing I do keep forgetting to hand over when it comes to the bill though....is my 20% discount loyalty card!! hey-ho, not a penny grudged when it comes to paying, so no real issue there!

I look forward to my next vist in a fortnight.
