Have been here a couple of times. Once for lunch and once for an evening meal. Both times food has been good, nothing exceptional but well worth the money. Staff and ambience good. Give it a go!

We were welcomed quickly and did not have to wait for a table at all. Excellent range of lunch menu, very tasty and freshly cooked , and at very good price.

This is over priced and tries to serve posh food, which doesn't really work in there for some reason. Staff friendly and easy to walk to.

Myself and other half booked this restaurant last minute on a whim and was the best choice we made in a long time. Excellent food and lovely staff. Would definitely come back again.

Had a lovely meal here tonight! Had a 2 course meal and a glass of wine off the set menu for £18.99 which was a brilliant deal! I had the French onion soup which wasn't on the deal but I asked if I could have it and would be willing to pay extra and I have to say it was... More

We have been two weekends in a row. We are working our way through the menu and haven't had a bad meal yet. The chicken breast salad and the spaghetti Bolognese are excellent.

Best club sandwich I think I've ever had. Service was good and it had a lovely atmosphere for lunch. Definitely would go again.

I really hate writing reviews like this, but when a restaurant is this bad, I feel a need to warn others. There were 6 people in our party for dinner tonight, and no one had anything positive to say about their dining experience. Setting aside the awful décor of the place with tiny inexpensive boom box speakers piping in elevator... More

The Lido is a great restaurant serving a great range of meals on it's menu. The food we order was wonderful from the steaks and scallops to the Balmoral chicken and ravioli. Would very much recommend as the restaurant was stylish and staff welcoming. The only small down side was the chairs were a little uncomfortable but this wouldn't stop... More
