Had Sunday lunch at lakeside. Been several times before and never been dissapointed yet. The building itself is very interesting, the staff have always been attentive and friendly. Food was lovely as usual there were 6 of us and nobody had any complaints. We paid £18 for 3 courses which if we had gone to the local pub would have... More

We went here for meal. The setting is very good - with a lake- hence the name. The food is good too but if you have the steak make sure you ask for well done if you wish medium- chef can't get any level right. Several commented this. Pity on 2 levels, as well. Service ok, food slightly cold ,... More

Had a delicious fillet steak cooked to perfection! Staff were very nice and we all had a great time. The interior looks like your stepping back in time - looks beautiful

Been a while since we visited the Lakeside or King Arthur as it now likes to be called? This place should be very popular but for some reason it always seems empty when we go. Yes it was a Monday night and they did have a special deal of all pasta dishes at half price which meant our meal was... More

Restaurant serves good food and offers a great drinks selection. Prices are on the high side however the location/venue is of high quality. Lovely to sit by the lake on a hot day.

Had a spa day here for a birthday recently, firstly the spa area is terrible and in need of modernisation. The restaurant is very dark with heavy chairs to move. We ordered the afternoon tea for 1, we were told we couldn't sit outside with this which we weren't told when booking. You are allowed other food out there so... More

Plenty of staff working bar and waiting staff but when people in your party have to keep getting up and moving your empty plates to the... More

Beautiful old building. Had drinks in the bar beforehand and were very quickly shown tour table. It was in a corner and extremely dark. The starters came quickly and these were very good. However, a few of us had the rib eye steaks for £3 extra and these were very disappointing. Mine was requested as medium rare. When it arrived... More
