“What a find!!”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

We called into Garfunkel's on Monday night 12th Aug on spec hoping to get something to eat. We were in time for the early bird special, arriving just before 18:30, with a 2 course for £10. The 3 of us had a lovely meal, beautifully presented and tasty. There is a bar option but also bring your own. The waitress that evening was Elaine (I think) I was in full view of her and she was so hard working but totally in control of the floor. Serving dinners, collecting plates, taking food orders, taking drink orders, accepting bills - she did it all with a smile and very quickly - she needs a raise!! I for one will certainly be back, I would recommend Garfunkel's highly.

“Good Food, Lovely Staff.”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

My Boyfriend and I came here on our anniversary. When we came in the staff were very attentive and asked us whether we would like to sit upstairs or down. There were more people upstairs so we sat downstairs. The menu had a great variety on it and the drinks menu had our favourite drink so we were happy. We ordered a bottle of New Zealand Sauv Blanc and food and sat having a great conversation.
The starters came out very quickly we both had Brie it was absolutely gorgeous I love brie wedges and the coulis complimented it so well. The mains followed shortly after, I had the steak which was cooked to perfection. My Boyfriend had a chilli burger was huge he enjoyed every bit of it. The staff were very attentive and looked after us well. For dessert we waited a bit before ordering as we were quite full. We eventually ordered a pavlova to share. This is my only criticism it definitely was not pavlova. It is suppose to be a crisp crust on the outside and light and fluffy in the inside. The pavlova we got was a small piece of meringue that when you cut into it it deflated and was sticky inside.
Apart from the dessert we had a really lovely meal and evening. We will definitely return.
