    This was a very different experience to our previous visits. We were shown to our table and drinks order taken straight away. After that it was down hill. After 30 mins I had to ask if we could order food, to be told there would be a 30 minute wait on food. When they food did arrive, it was incorrect and wasn’t exactly piping hot. They did offer to replace the incorrect items but as we had waited so long we declined. In the mean time we then had to ask if we could order more drinks as we hadn’t been asked. To be fair the venue was busy and all tables were full, which I’m assuming is a good thing. Overall it seemed like the venue was understaffed. When staff did serve they were fine but it just wasn’t often enough. Atmosphere was good as it was busy. As I say, not the best experience and not like previous visits.

    Outstanding service and gorgeous food! We were very pleased with the experience of our date day at the Pavilion. Staff very polite and friendly and the food was to die for. The atmosphere was very pleasant, not too loud yet not too quiet. The perfect balance for a fun day out drinking. We will definitely be back to visit again soon! Thanks for a lovely day!

    Really love coming here. Service this time wasn’t as good as usual in terms of attentiveness. Everytime we wanted to order drinks or our food we had to call for someone which isn’t nice to do as a customer as you feel like you’re taking them away from something else. Also made us feel uneasy that our food orders weren’t written down so were down to memory. Turned out one of our dishes was missing which was soon rectified but still not great having to wait for it. Overall we enjoyed it though.

    Waiter whispered rather than spoke and greated us, when taking orders started twirling around and swinging his leg out. Very unprofessional. Waited a while to pay the bill too busy on their phones and chatting behind the bar, even when asked for it and presented our bank card to pay. The whole experience of service just felt childish and that the staff just simply couldnt be bothered with us.

    Cannot fault the food but the service was terrible. We was seated outside and they brought out food out which was quite cold but no check back was made. We ate our food and finished our drinks, no one came for a good while. Went inside to find someone and all staff stood talking at the bar so we just decided to pay and leave. Mentioned to them that no one had been out for 40 minutes and they didn’t even apologise. It’s new staff everytime and can see why.
