    We sat outside as we were told the inside was closed. Put it this way I didn’t expect to be sat on a type of garden chair that was not appropriate for eating in and be served drinks in a plastic cup. Service was dire and we only stayed for one drink on the basis of the cost of a cocktail that wasn’t that big for a spritz and the fact it was in a plastic cup.

    Quite disappointed with our Sunday roast lunch. Looked amazing when they brought it up but the vegetables were hard and the potatoes were tasteless and enormous. I ordered roast lamb but got given a strip of roast beef underneath the lamb. We sat near the door and even though it was a windy day, they kept opening the door which of course made us feel cold and we couldn’t relax. We tried to pay adding an OpenTable cheque that we had as well but we were told the restaurant didn’t take these on a Sunday, even though OpenTable said this shouldn’t have happened.

    Rubbish service, was looking round for a waiter most the time just to get their attention, staff away to busy talking and laughing with people on the bar. I had to stand up to the bar just to ask for our receipt. Will

    We went yesturday had a booking for 4:45 for my partners birthday the waitress with the red bandana I loved her quirky fun approachable service I was pregnant aswell and let them know and had a really nice cranberry juice and she managed to take the payment quickly whilst my partner went toilet so he didn’t pay for his birthday defo will be coming back generous portion of food lovely clean and hygienic place to eat especially if ur pregnant I was given vegan Mayo with my chips they have options if u are on a diet or pregnant reasonably priced compliments to the chef and the waitress and the venue thank u for welcoming us we felt so comfortable and was the first time coming defo will be back again even when I hav the baby lovely spacious floor to fit a pram in the future well done for making our day special this is the first review I’ve written so much on because I need to let you know how well you treated is my partners birthdays and we saw our scan for the first time was a beautiful way to complete our afternoon kind regards Leila dyer

    As a family of four we tried out the Sunday Roast and it was epic! Absolutely delicious, reasonably priced and portion size was brilliant, more than enough on the plate. Service was friendly and attentive never intrusive. Will definitely return and have already recommended to family and friends friends, thank you!

    Lovely food and good service, but music so incredibly loud we were having to shout at each other across the table to try and have a conversation. Having the music so loud means everyone has to talk much louder and so the overall volume of everything is pretty uncomfortable! The lady I was dining with said it was like having a meal at a rave. Fine if you like that sort of thing but if you want to actually be able to have a normal conversation then I would try somewhere else.

    Thought I would have a nice drink with a couple friends on the Standard’s outside terrace. But soon we were swarmed by a group several dozen young adults who had clearly booked separate tables and then just clumped up after they were seated, despite the new government regulations. There was nothing down by the servers to separate them. And they kept clumping by the table where my 3 friends and I (well in our less than 6 bubble) were sat. Also our servers were clearly not interested in us and kept on trying to get us to pay our bills right away, but were more than happy to focus on the large group of un distanced adults. DO BETTER. The number of cases in the UK are doubling each day and if you can’t enforce distancing in your restaurant, then you shouldn’t be open. My friends I left pretty quickly after we got our food, because we did not feel safe. I will not be returning to this establishment any time soon.

    Great location and lovely decor, lovely ambiance when we walked in and really disappointed that the food didn’t deliver. We went on a Sunday so the general consensus was the Sunday Roast, we ordered the lobster rolls - pretty tasteless and watery. The slider burgers which were okay. The calamari which we had to send back as it the batter wasn’t near enough cooked and tasted very under done. The best part was the chorizo croquettes which were delightful and by far the best part of the meal. (Best of a bad bunch) The Strawberry daiquiri was very nice and Moretta on tap is always a winner. Would definitely go back but drinks only and not for dinner or food. Service was generally good.
