The Merlin proved a perfect venue for our celebratory meal with friends and family after our wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for Kim and other staff members we dealt with. They happily re-worked menus for meat eaters and vegan food options and took on board communication tactics with deaf people.

On the day all ran smoothly and the 25+ people in our group enjoyed themselves and their 3 course meals. The standard of food and wine was excellent and led to a glowing review from a friend's daughter who said.
"That 's the best dinner I've ever had"

we have eaten at The Merlin before & have to travel 40mins to get there. The first time we ate was really good but on sunday decided to make the travel to have the same very tasy food but was left very dissapointed.The service wasnt as good & we had to send one of the meals back ( we never complain or send food back) & was left feeling uncomfortable by the waiter that we had. There was no appology & when it was brought back by the waitress ( i had eaten mine by then) she just plopped it infront of my husband without any service manners at all. Dont think wel be making the journey again for a while. For the price you pay for the food it was unexceptable

We have eaten here a few times and when asked where I would like to eat for my birthday I always ask for The Merlin. The decor is lovely. Staff always friendly and polite. The food is gorgeous, fish and chips is to die for! Can't wait for next visit!

Booked a table for a catch up with friends. The food was delicious, the staff attentive and atmosphere was good. Disappointed to see the poor reviews on here as we have been twice now and have enjoyed it both times.
