It was good to be able to eat out. Even though we are only able to rat outside, they have done an outstanding job of providing us the ability to have a meal.
Food was very good

Unfortunately not a great experience. Delighted that we can eat out again so booked for Sunday lunch with 2 family members.

Waitress wasn't wearing a mask at the start and was head to head discussing the menu. she eventually put one on.
A distinct lack of allergen information and alternatives. Limited vegan option from the main menu and non on the Sunday specials. No Gluten or dairy free either for the Sunday specials.

There wasn't a poultry as a Sunday roast option. Went for the beef . Arrived lukewarm and the plates were cold. Roast potatoes so so disappointing, absolutely no crispiness on the outside. Might as well have been boiled. Beans and carrots tasteless and all of it was swimming in gravy. The Yorkshire puddings were flat as pancakes and again none of the golden crispness you expect. They should have popped into Iceland opposite and got Aunt Bessies.

Can't be helped i guess but we did have a screaming child on the table next to us which certainly did not help.

Overall a disappointing meal out.

Food undercooked... the rice in the vine leaves was crunchy & souvlaki chicken gooey in the middle
Asked to move tables to be in the sun was told no even though there were tables available
Heard a waiter mutter f**k off to another complaining customer
Could have put the heaters on as we were outside dining!
Not worth the money!!

No warning that we couldn’t just go for drinks, when we then tried to order food there was no vegan option so they tried to force us to order something we didn’t want.

Waitress then had an attitude for the evening which ruined the experience.

Went to the outdoor dining on Friday. Food was lovely and hot and service was good. There was a good canopy over the seating but the patio heaters were completely useless. I took a hot water bottle so was fine.

The food was excellent and the service was fine but it was a chilly evening and the restaurant really should have provided some outdoor heating.Because of COVID the manager refused to allow our friends to move to a vacant table next to ours but later moved tables without any fuss when a group of young lads came and requested the same. Overall a good restaurant experience with these caveats.

There was no heaters or blankets available and it was an extremely cold night in which we had to cut our evening short. Most of the outdoor areas In other restaurants have heaters and it would be good to have something on their website telling people to wrap up warm.

Food and service was lovely.

it was great to have a get together and we always love the food and service in Aqua Petts Wood. This could have been better if there was heating facility outside.. it was so cold and have to eat food quickly as it turns cold quickly being outside.

Although we were eating outside because of Covid-19 there was a nice atmosphere. The service was good and we were well looked after. The food was good as well as hot which under the circumstances of eating outside was an experience.

It was the first night for the restaurant to open after lockdown so it was outdoor seating only. The food and service was excellent, maybe if there had been some form of outdoor heating it would have been perfect.

Great to be able to eat out again - under cover but no heaters so we kept coats on and I put my scarf over my knees! Service was really good and 50% off steak night didn't mean 50% off quality. We've already booked again.

The food was good, service a bit slow, but we were concerned about how many groups of people who were there who were clearly not in one household, as required by tier 2.

Food was great and the service was outstanding
Found it a lovely dining experience especially given the social distancing required and lockdown restrictions meant we haven't been out for months.
It was a great night and would love to come back again soon

We enjoyed our visit. They have a very varied menu and a good Xmas party menu. One of the best groups for a varied and interesting set menu . Sometimes starters are rather large like a few lighter options fruit based and same with desserts more with fruit please.
Perhaps they could also try and put some soft furnishings into the Petts Wood branch to cut down on noise though at present time with smaller groups much better. Bromley Aqua better set up to minimise noise of large groups and has same lovely menus.

Sadly on this visit there were issues with the food, missing items, cold food etc. Service was acceptable. Table next to us was very rowdy at times, which was often a distraction. Not the best experience.

The cauliflower purée Wu the the scallops was too watery. The asparagus with the goats cheese was almost non existent.
The potatoes serves with the duck was burnt.
It’s a shame as normally the food here is perfect but a bit disappointing this time.
