Having driven past here on many occasions and commented and commented how nice it looked, coupled with how nice the menu has always sounded on the website, we decided to try eating here for the first time to celebrate our engagement. Our experience though was not what i was expecting, based on the surroundings and the prices on the menu,... More

The menu choices were good and the food was cooked well. I had a turkey main meal with Christmas pudding and custard and was not disappointed. The surroundings and lake are beautiful but I just think the owners are missing a trick. The music was repeated 3 or 4 times during our meal so I think it's little things like... More

We were greeted by a nice young lady, however she was wearing black skinny jeans not sure they were appropriate for the style of restaurant though. The drinks order was taken swiftly and we were given menus. The waiter took our food order but he didn't really seem that bothered that we were there, its almost like we were in... More

Went here for a group dinner. Generally unimpressed with both the service and the attitude exhibited by staff to their customers. Food was average. Attention to detail= none. Will not return when I am next back in the area.

Beautiful surroundings and building. It is considerably downhill from there on. Food was ok. Service was abysmal. I cannot stress how terrible it was. The manager told us to "get out of the way" on entry in a terrible attitude. Then meals didn't turn up and no apology. Finally the bill was wrong and again no apology. All in all... More

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
