I have been going to the lake view for years, I was looking forward to seeing the outcome of the reno, but it's not really different to before, just more expensive now. I don't mind paying more for good food, but it's ordinary. Still not a bad place to stop for a drink in the summer time though as its location is stil a pull factor.

This hotel cut itself in half so it could build massive apartments instead which completely overshadow the pub and the parking is hit and miss. No longer a great venue - reduction in seating area - however can recommend brunch and consistent food standards - yet again a bit pricey for order at the counter stuff

Good all round pub/restaurant. Service is good and relatively quick considering its usually busy. The menu is good and reasonably priced. New outdoor seating is nice with plenty of shade and a nice view across to the lake.

We visited the Lake View Restaurant for a friends Birthday breakfast on a Sunday, the service was very good and reasonably quick, the restaurant has been refurbished quite recently and is very nice. I ordered the breakfast pizza and it was superb, my wife unfortunately ordered the pancakes with fruit and ice cream, the pancakes where very dry and the ice cream was full of ice crystals. On the upside the fresh OJ was very fresh and sweet.
I have visited this restaurant several times in the past and will return again in the future, I think I will just skip the pancakes ;)
