Had a lovely Sunday lunch here, beautiful place, but oh you let someone in with three dogs not very healthy for a restaurant very unhygienic wise ,you should let people know I for one would not use a restaurant which allows dogs in (oh I am a dog lover) where people are eating

Hi Classy2015,

Thank you for your review and we are very glad that you enjoyed both the food and the Pavilion. We pride ourselves on the quality of both the environment and food we offer.

However, I am very disappointed that we have received this poor review, since you have not realised the full details of what happened last Sunday. Let me explain as you did not raise this with us on Sunday.

We have a no dog policy for Sundays only, which is explained to all customers, we also have signage up to make people aware.

Unfortunately, the dogs in question on Sunday belonged to an elderly lady who had travelled a substantial distance to visit relatives and for some reason unknown to us had not adhered to the policy. They arrived with the dogs and we were left in a difficult position.

Being left with the situation of refusing our customers or with placing them away from everyone in the corner table, I chose to go with the latter. That was my decision as the owner, and therefore I stand by it.

I can assure you that we ensured the dogs were under the table and not encroaching on anyone else’s enjoyment of their lunch.

We did not have any other complaints from the other diners.

As I said it is a shame that you chose to give us a poor review for a dog when the food was excellent as my team work very hard to give a fantastic service.

Nonethless, we will endeavour to keep all of our customers happy, even though by helping one diner as in this instance, it meant upsetting another which was yourself.

I would ask you also to remember (as a dog lover) that we are in a park and therefore dogs are allowed for the most part of the week.

many thanks

Visited with family on a Friday evening at the end of August, very glad I’d booked as every table was reserved. Now I can see why! It is a quirky place and the park setting makes quite unusual. The staff were all very professional and also friendly, three of had the fish and chips and one had a burger. All the meals were excellent and the bar prices not too bad. I would highly recommend the food, next time I shall try something from their Specials list which sounded good.

I just wanted to review Stock because the service went above and beyond what you would expect. Our toddler son was made to feel really welcome and every member of staff worked hard to help us enjoy our delicious lunch. It is also a top location. We will definitely be back. Not what I was expecting from a park cafe at all - a lovely place to eat and socialise.
