Have just been in The Lounge for the first time for drinks & was made to feel really uncomfortable by the customers/bar maid so we left before we finished our drinks. Will not be visiting again.

We had a very nice evening at The Lounge for our 55th wedding anniversary. The food was great and the staff are so warm and friendly. I can recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants a great meal.
