Went for dinner on Saturday night. Friendly service and the food was excellent. Starter of snails and mushrooms on crumpet with garlic sauce was great and very original. Mains of pork belly and lamb were well cooked, decent sizes and came with nice sides. The sauces were also excellent. Will be back

We will most certainly look forward to extending our offering with both hours and menu when the restrictions from Covid ease and we leave tier 2 and the threat of lockdowns. We love being described as having a "friendly atmosphere', that's exactly the kind of place we want it to be! Joelle & Marc.

We had been looking forward to returning to Cullenders as a post Lockdown treat. We had a lovely time & we were well looked after by Mark and his team. The atmosphere is comfortable and cosy and they have managed to Covid restrictions very well indeed. To kick things off, I had their Negroni which is a belter. Life always looks better after that! The food is excellent - we had a vegetarian with us and she said the same. Wine by the glass is a good option for us and we were very happy to see that there are some decent (not bank busting) choices there. I’d thoroughly recommend it - we are already booked to go back....

My wife and I had an excellent time and, despite the restrictions imposed by Tier 2, the restaurant did everything to make our evening enjoyable.

The food was excellent. I had the snails with mushrooms on a crumpet which was original and packed with flavour.

The wine was well priced for the menu meaning we felt we got great value from the entire package.

Staff were attentive but not overly so. Once COVID is over and the restaurant can pack in the covers I have no doubt it will further improve in ambience

Hi Peter, many thanks for taking the time to leave us a lovely review. The Tier 2 restrictions certainly are tough and we've seen a large percentage of our December bookings cancel. Like you say, once we are allowed groups back in it will enhance the atmosphere. We're so pleased you had a good time and enjoyed your evening none the less. Look forward to seeing you again.

Lovely scrambled egg and smoked salmon, toasted sourdough was a bit tough; OH declared his poached egg with chorizo very good but a bit small
We sat in the side room which was curiously untidy with what looked like catering equipment and high chairs piled up at the back. As I was facing it all, it detracted somewhat from the ambiance
Staff are young, but friendly and attentive; a few rough edges removed and Cullenders would be spot on

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We most definitely know there's a storage issue and at least now we have some time whilst we're closed to iron out the rough edges we are very much aware of. It's been a crazy few months but hopefully we will come out the other side of lockdown number 2 for the better. Hope to see you again at Cullenders Parkside when we reopen in December.

We booked a table for 12.30 to have Sunday brunch with our daughter, her partner and our grandson.
The brunch menu is not extensive. Two of the dishes (Fish Tacos and Tuna Melt0 were not available anymore.
We would also have appreciated pancakes, avocado and smoked salmon - staples of many a brunch.
The coffee was really good and the staff very attentive.
Maybe next time we will try an evening meal.

Thank You for your review.It's a shame you didn't receive the Cullenders experience we would have hoped you to have got.We do have smoked salmon and avocado on offer for brunch as both are very popular items.Sunday was a busy day and the tuna melt and tacos were popular we did sadly run out of them. We feel we offer everything one would expect from a breakfast/brunch menu except pancakes. Our menu ranges from a full English to burritos to huevos rancheros.We hope to see you again.Joelle & Marc.
