5 years ago I would bust a gut to try and get a table to eat here on a Friday or Saturday night! But after my latest experiences I don't think I'll be going back in a hurry.... The evening menu is so over worded & pretentious, giving the impression of very fancy food when in reality what you are... More

My mother in law recommended this restaurant, having visited twice before. She wished to take my wife and I there for her 86th birthday. She booked a table by phone and the person on the other end seemed to imply that it could be busy. Previous experience had been of the venue being packed. The menu seemed to have changed,... More

We have had several meals at Lakeside and everyone has been excellent and good portions. Our last visit was on New Year's Day and the set menu was excellent, the beef just melted in your mouth and the three courses was great value. Besides the food what makes this a great place to eat is the location, which is beautiful.... More

We have been here several times with a group of friends for celebration lunches. In the summer it is nice to sit outside with drinks or coffee as the scenery iso lovely. Inside it is very comfortable and nicely decorated. The food is very good in the main though we all thought that the last Christmas lunch we had there... More

Visited here for lunch for a special occasion on our calendar, decided to go at lunchtime for a change. Despite the beautiful surroundings the food wasn't brilliant. I asked my husband which course was best, I said the soup and he said the beer. We were both disappointed, the service was poor and the only waitress was run off her... More

This was my first visit for food as part of a group. It is a nice place. The food overall was to me like a good pub food standard however at restaurant prices. There were some niggles, 2 items from the menu not available even though we were there at the start of service. I understand the some items might... More
