“Excellent Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

Visited for the first time in over 20 years recently and have to say the food and service was very good.

The bar area is very dated, bordering on shabby, but i can't decide whether this just adds to a bygone charm or not.

The food is excellent and they certainly do not skimp on the portions. Service is top notch and although not cheap i felt it offered good value for money. For 4 of us including pre dinner drinks, a couple of bottles of wine and three courses each came to around £200

“Could be so much better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

Eight of us for a special occasion Sunday lunch.
As has been stated on so many reviews the reception and bar area are extremely dated. Most of the male staff are in desperate need of new clothes. Have they no pride in their appearance ?

After taking drinks in the bar and deciding on our meal choices we were asked through to the restaurant. I like the look of the restaurant, very light, airy and well set out with plenty of room between the tables. The waiting staff are very pleasant and efficient.

Most of us considered the Sunday lunch menu quite good value. However the potatoes were not good, the roasties were appalling.

All in all a successfull occasion for us but could've been so much better, new trousers and shirts for the male staff, redecoration in reception/bar, and better quality potatoes !

“Yet another great evening.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

The Kingsway Hotel is a family run concern that has been in business for more years than I can remember and hopefully will continue to do so for many more years to come. My wife and I wanted to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary some where special with a superb atmosphere and food to match. We have used The Kingsway many times over the past years so we decided that we would go there again and we were not disappointed. It has to be the place to go to for good old fashioned silver service, ambiance and excellent food. From the moment we arrived with our son, daughter in law and grandson to the moment we left we were well and truly pampered with the service. I arranged for a flower arrangement to be delivered and presented to my wife after the meal and this happened as smooth as anything. None of us could fault the food and we all had 3 courses and even though the restaurant wasn't busy the atmosphere was still very good so thank you very much Kingsway and yes we will be back again.

“Golden Wedding Celebration”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

In the run up to our golden wedding anniversary a group of our friends took us to the Kingsway for lunch. The food was excellent and the surroundings very pleasant. The staff were very attentive and ensured that our needs were seen to. The menu was varied and offered a wide selection of dishes to suit all tastes. If I had one criticism it would be that having booked as a large party we sat in the lounge prior to lunch and no one came to see if we would like pre lunch drinks. Eventually one of the party had to go to the bar to ask if someone could come and take our order. Once the request was made the response was very quick. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Kingsway.

“Magnificent restaurant in an interesting building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

We liked everything about it, food was excellent and we were made to feel special. Breakfast was made to order and not kept warm like most hotels and the staff were very welcoming
