Had lunch a few times at retreat. The service is consistently really good, food is served quickly, staff are attentive but not too much, and have gone out of their way to make slight changes to the food that we have ordered to fit in with diets/awkward eaters!

Overpriced with average food, plus points are good service and nice atmosphere. The food could be so much better, the ingredients seem bland and average.

Came here a couple of week ago and really enjoyed our meal. Steak pie was good and so was the beef kebab. Good price for a lunchtime meal. Service was good however we did notice a few of the staff were rushed off their feet .Will return

Thank grahre
