“Our favourite place”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

The food is so good you have to eat it slowly to savour it. The wines are outstanding and the attentive staff marvellous. We keep this as our favourite restaurant because we love it so much

“A Golden Wedding”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

We had been meaning to try this restaurant for a long time but it took two friends Golden Wedding celebration to occasion our first visit. Our experience caused regret that we had missed the opportunity to enjoy many superlative meals !
The menu was not over extensive but sufficient to suit all tastes. Food was of high quality,beautifully presented and served piping hot , whilst service was exemplarily.
Inside ,the restaurant is divided into two separate rooms which means that special parties and regular customers are kept well apart.
We intend to find an excuse to return very soon !

“What a Surprise”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We decided to try Keats after a recommendation by a fellow disgruntled diner in a nearby restaurant. We arrived and were a little concerned about the décor but decided to give it a go. This meal was the best we have in the last couple of years, the starters/mains/desserts were all outstanding. The menu was varied and extensive and the wine was also of good quality. We will definitely be returning.

“Not just for special occasions”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Have been going here for over 30 years and the standard is as good if not better still. Great for any occasion with extensive menu to satisfy any palate. Special dietary requirements are catered for by prior arrangement and in fact nothing is too much trouble. Even at busy times the service is first-class but with a "family" feel.The fact we are still going back on a regular basis speaks volumes about the place. Whether it's for a party or an intimate dinner for two give Keats a visit. You won't be disappointed.

“Golden Wedding Celebration”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

We recently enjoyed a celebratory meal with friends at this very pleasant restaurant.
It is very unusual to find such an excellent venue that will satisfy all our requirements as we are regular cruisers and used to five star food.
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and a very high standard was achieved .
If you are looking for Haute Cuisine including undercooked vegetables and minute portions then this is not the restaurant for you. If you prefer piping hot food,sensible portions and tasty dishes with plenty of choice then you will not be disappointed.
The food is a little pricey but worth it especially for a celebration or for entertaining
