What our guests think about dining in our Harlequin restaurant:

Lovely service, great food, wonderful staff, brilliant turnaround time for express lunch. Many thanks"
Nafisah, August 2015

"Everything about our evening was lovely, the service was excellent and very professional, my salmon was tender and so tasty and my partners chicken was delicious, thank you so much."
Samantha, August 2015

“We decided on the express lunch which intriguingly promised three courses, one plate on the menu for £10.95. There was a choice of a salad starter or soup, three main courses and chef's pastries. It came beautifully presented on a large square plate with each part of the lunch on a separate slate. We all thought it was the perfect amount for a light lunch and really well cooked. We will definitely be visiting again on the next occasion.
Maureen, August 2015

"I was very pleased with the quality of food I received for my gluten free afternoon tea, as a Coeliac sufferer I find it difficult to find restaurants to cater for me. I cannot fault the food or service. Thank you for a lovely experience!"
Emma, June 2015

"Excellent service. Choice of food extremely accommodating to any special dietary needs, really pleasant, helpful customer focused staff. Would highly recommend and return in a heartbeat; also lovely surprise of extra treats for our anniversary. Many thanks, thoroughly enjoyable!"
Mr & Ms Knowles, June 2015

"I booked a table for a lunchtime meal for my Mother. We both decided to have fillet steaks for our main course. Delicious and the best steak I have tasted to date! All of the staff were charming and helpful."
Laura, April 2015
