When the food and the drinks arrive they are OK, but often the meals arrive at separate times, and if it gets busy they seem to forget your drinks. The other thing that they desperately need to do is to re-decorate the interior. I cant remember when the last time they refurbished it and it is looking tired and faded

We,as a family, have been visiting The Arch for years. Consistently good food. They sometimes struggle with their service levels on busy evenings but generally very happy. Thank you Max!

Was there last weekend. Had set menu and was impressed by the portion size (a little too big) and prompt friendly service. Love it there every time

The restaurant staff were courteous and receptive. They take good care of us and provided excellent and tasty food. Decor of the restaurant is pleasant and good. Service was good but being a weekday , it was not particularly busy. We celebrated our friends birthday in style. Would recommend this restaurant for its food, service and helpful staff

As a sole female traveller things are sometimes a bit hit and miss, the first mistake that restaurants make is to seat you out of sight of other people i.e. in a corner or act as if you are in fact taking up a table that could have been given to a group. Big mistake as I travel more than... More
