We dident even eat. We had a table booked for 7 on valentines night and we entered the place to be seated so close to other diners that u were practically on there laps. We asked to move and the manager said they couldn’t as they were so busy. They tried squeezing everyone into a tiny room but ended up causing stress to dinners due to this. Other dinners said food was crap also so we left and went round the corner to enzo which was lovely and half the price. Really bad experience and a wasted trip as paid for child care and we don’t get our much so would never go back so 0 out 10 for everything.

Service was slow, kept bringing the wrong food to surrounding tables, had to ask for dessert. Had the steak asked for medium come literally blue, not very nice piece of meat. Set menu was pricey at £40 a head, taking advantage of it being valentine's evening. The place comes across as an upmarket place to dine however it failed to live upto reputation and standards, don't think we will be going again

Food and service very good. Only issue was that we felt the temperature inside the area we were sat at was very cold which made the visit quite uncomfortable.

We celebrated a 40 th birthday going for lunch. Food was lovely and the lady that served us was great and very accommodating bringing the birthday cake out. Thanks for a lovely lunch.

Overall ok
Decor fine
Tables a bit too small
Music was terrible, too loud and dance based with a repeatable screech all night long
Not restuarant music at all, so annoying we skipped dessert

I’ve always rated residents but after the experience of the food on Saturday I was not impressed. so now I feel I wouldn’t recommend residents to anybody. The service was very good the girls where helpful.

Lovely food and a lovely atmosphere. Would give 5 stars but we were told after our main course that we had 30 minutes left and they would need the table back. Didn’t leave any time to order a desert which was disappointing. We didn’t even get offered to order a desert!! Took a long time waiting for drinks. Overall only there for 1 hour and 45 minutes which felt very rushed. It was a shame as everything else was lovely. Did give us a seat outside the restaurant so we could finish our drinks but it’s by the door and was very cold. Had to sit there in our coats. Understand the need to turn tables round but 1 hour 45 minutes was not very long at all!

One of our party was 'Gluten free' diner and despite the original choice not being gluten free the matter was very well dealt with, hence the high scores for customer service.

Lovely meal - only disappointment was the pan fried scallops , or should I say lack of them . 3 scallops for a £12 starter - disappointing !
Other than that food was great !

We booked the restaurant for our daughter's birthday, the food, cocktails and service were all great. We sat on the left side which felt more like a pub but wasn't a problem, we may ask to be seated on the right next time as more like a restaurant. Would definitely recommend and will be coming back soon.

Quiet lunchtime as the weather was appalling (floods). I rang ahead as we were stuck in traffic due to the weather and Shaun advised us it was not a problem. Food and service was very good. A lovely environment in which to enjoy a birthday lunch with family. We will definitely be back.

Greeted well, the restaurant was quite full and a little noisy. We were placed between two large parties which was not the best for a couple.
We both ordered the chicken from the main menu which was good but all the potatoes and veg were cold and under cooked.
We frequent this restaurant on a regular basis and the food is usually cooked to a much higher standard.
We still enjoyed our evening and our host for the night tried her best to put things right.
