“Suck it and See?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

Previous review in October "Identity Crises" has now been resolved The Lake Lounge Bar cannot make claim to be a restaurant. In my view the LL&B is a Bistro cafe I say that purely on the ability of the menu to provide a sufficient choice of quality food, the service, and the attention to detail.
There is little doubt that the layout is clean modern but it lacks intimacy.The food although reasonably good is unexciting. The price is a little high but nothing to get worried about. The big problem is the attention to detail. The service is generally unresponsive; no welcome, slow, and there is clearly a lack of staff on hand to assist customers. This can be excused in a Bistro Cafe but it is inexcusable for a restaurant. I am still a fan and will continue to give the place my patronage, but I have more or less crossed it off my list for anything other than lunch.- SORRY

“Below average food, cold to sit in, rude service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

Went here with my teenage son. Firstly the place was very cold - we did think of leaving but decided to stay - wish we hadn't. Food took ages to arrive. Firstly the order was wrong. We didn't complain as had waited so long for the food. The toastie which was ordered was awful, wet cheap ham on soggy burnt bread. I didn't eat it but did mention to the waitress that it didn't taste nice, She was quite rude and said 'why'. I explained and she mentioned it to the chef. She then told me the chef said the ham was fresh and there was nothing wrong with it - then charged me for it too. I would not go there again, awful food, rude service.

“lake lounge, hollingworth lake”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

We called in the lake lounge at lunch time yesterday, We just called in for coffee to see what the place was like before we booked for an evening out. The place looks good, nice décor.
We sat a table for a while but nobody came out from the kitchen, there were a few families in but not too busy. I only wanted drinks so I hovered around the bar area until a guy came out and took my order. We sat at the table for 25 minutes before the coffee arrived ( 2 cups of machine vended latte ).
If a place is busy I expect to wait, not a problem, we waited a long time for poor coffee.
I think we will give the evening booking a miss for a while.

“Very disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Called in last Sunday just for coffee, very well greeted so having walked 7 miles today Thurs we decided to have lunch. Nobody greeted us so just found a table, waited a good 10 mins then had to ask for the menu, lady came back with menu had to stop her dissappearing to order coffees whilst we looked. Eventually she took order, my Husband ordered fish and chips I ordered burger with no cheese ad I'm dairy free, after what seemed an age our food arrived, with cheese on the burger, by the time they cooked a fresh one my husband had finished his. When I cut mine it was raw in the middle by this time I couldnt be bothered to wait for a third one so just ate the outside and the chips the only good thing. Wont be going again, very disappointed
