Always enjoy our catch ups at the Pavillion. It’s such a great place to have a nice meal and a few drinks. The staff are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Thanks for another lovely evening 😊

Food was good but we waited over an hour for a burger and pizza by the time it arrived we were on our second bottle of wine. It was New Year’s Eve however the pub wasn’t that busy and we were sat at the table 25 minutes before we were asked if we wanted a drink. The staff we’re running round non stop so I’m not faulting them as everyone was lovely and apologetic but the wait took the shine off the evening

Great staff, very friendly and attentive, but the food was disappointing. Shredded duck and chorizo pasta with ciabatta came with no chorizo and no ciabatta. They gave us discount though. The katsu chicken was very bland.

Service staff not attentive. Had to ask to order drinks and then had to ask if we could order food. Staff sat at a table attending to admin rather than meeting customers needs.

Waiting staff were very friendly & polite. Didn’t really like the table location we were assigned as quite close to the door & there was a large party on the next table who were stood over us when we were seated. Food was very tasty & overall good value for money.

Our first visit to The Pavilion and we really enjoyed it. Quite a limited menu though.
We had the BBQ fajitas for two. The chicken was very tasty and the spices were just right. Nice sides too. Would have liked to have had my wraps warm but that’s a personal thing.
Staff very friendly and attentive.
Lovely meal in nice surroundings. We’ll be back.
