Came for a meal with my boyfriends family, absolutely loved it here! Each night the menu is personalised so you will get a special mention which is a lovely touch. Dog friendly as well, and they were given some treats too! Lovely menu, so much to choose from! Beautifully presented and absolutely delicious! We were stuffed afterwards but it was worth it! We will definitely be coming here again!

We decided to go to Lucy’s as it had a Tastecard offer! With a 241 deal this is great value for money! Menu is personalised and fun with a great choice of food for meat eaters and vegetarians. The desserts looked great it was just a shame I couldn’t fit one in.

We visited for a second time with another family whilst on holiday, and we had a great time again. There's masses of choice so everybody could find something they liked (always important with kids!), and the food overall was excellent (the only thing which wasn't up to standard was my duck breast where the skin could have been crispier and the flesh a bit pinker). The restaurant has lots of different rooms, which helped us feel that we could be a bit "noisy" without annoying other customers. All staff were very friendly and welcoming - we were looked after well, and whilst you could say that the service was a bit slow at times, that suited us down to the ground as it made the evening last longer and we wouldn't have wanted it any different! The personalised menus are a nice touch as well. Will certainly return the next time we're in the area.
