“"Absolutely Fabulous"”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

As a Family, we decided to go to the flamingo for my Grandads 80th and Nannys 79th.
We booked over the phone and were welcomed by a very warm and friendly manager taking our orders and our booking.
We pre ordered our meals and asked if we could come and decorate the table before hand, and yet again welcomed to do so however we fancied, it was great.
The set meal was beautiful and very well cooked.
As the evening progressed we were suprised by an amazing 60s rock and roll band; everyone was dancing and laughing and the staff were absolutely lovely and made every one comfortable,
ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS. would 100% eat there again. perfect evening.

“Excellent value”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Its very difficult to beat the Flamingo for good value. Food is always good especially Steak pie or cajun Chicken. I eat here now every week. Atmosphere is great and the staff very friendly and accomodating. Dont miss this treat......if you want really good value give the Flamingo a try

“almost perfect”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

me and my family visited the flamingo yesterday for lunch. There was 6 of us in total. we ordered drinks at the bar area whilst looking through the menu. we were called to sit at our table. we had a short wait before the main courses arrived 2 of the group ordered beef lasagne, 2 ordered the beef roast special. my grandad who was one of the group had cod and i had the chicken burger which was new to the menu since I last visited. there were only minor problems with the lasagnes both were slightly burnt on the edge. however the main issue that stood out to me was when four of the mains had been delivered the waitress went off and served another person leaving two of my family members without there food! this was tolerable apart from that everything else was outstanding. i will be looking forward to the next visit
