    Usual enjoy going here but menu had changed, no light meals just full meals for lunch. Menu on line still had old menu. Had a charcuterie started which was very basic. One type of meat and only a few circles with a few geeking and flat bread, at £9.00 it was very disappointing. I won’t be going again the standard has dropped since before lockdown.

    Beautiful restaurant. We've been here 4 times now and we always have a fantastic meal. Great food, nice atmosphere plenty of hand sanitizer and the staff were very welcoming. Felt like a normal night considering we have a pandemic going on x

    Staff were polite and helpful and were much better than my previous visit about a month ago - especially in terms of not keeping us waiting. Good was very good and we had a thoroughly enjoyable lunch

    The setting and food was excellent however we waited over an hour for food and our order has obviously been forgotten or missed which made the overall experience very disappointed ☹️

    A return visit. Staff still getting to grips with Covid requirements - for example an uncleared table was allowed to be used before clean up. Service was v good. Food not so good with several items unavailable. Superb location.

    I thought the food was nice enough but a slither of veg and 2 halved roast potatoes for £17 was overpriced. I guess this is due to location as they can overcharge holiday makers. Not sure I'll be back.

    My daughter bought us a night away for our Christmas, it was on Valentine’s Day, so booked a meal at your restaurant... I can’t fault the service or the food quality, but, the amount was disappointing, I have been to many restaurants and normally with a meal they take out a tray of vegetables to compliment your meal, we were waiting for the vegetables, but nothing appeared, all my other half got was a few pureed squiggles and a chewy duck breast.. the puddings were but a mouthful, we don’t get out that often, and haven’t got a lot of money, it was quite expensive and I felt we didn’t get value for money, my daughter had spent a lot of her hard earned cash to do something special for us and I feel that the meal had put a damper on the evening and maybe wish she had spent her money better.. we had to lie to her and say it was lovely and we really enjoyed it, which was not true .. We were very disappointed...

    Lovely surroundings but extremely expensive for what you get. Had to send back meal due to it being chewy and very hard to cut

    Excellent restaurant atmosphere, great service and good value. The children were catered for with right-sized portions which were all eaten...… Good long opening hours means the restaurant is busy but not oppressively full. Thank you De Vere for a great Sunday lunch.

    Restaurant was cold, service wasn’t great! Meal was very oily (we all had a roast dinner) the pot with the roast veggies in was soo hot it burnt myself! The table next to us - refuses to pay full price for their meal - I could easily understand why
