Wonderful venue, great atmosphere. Staff were courteous, friendly and warm. It was very busy in the run up to Christmas and service was a little on the slow side. The food was very well worth the wait, with a sticky toffee pudding to lick your fingers for. Felt like a real treat of a night out.

Had to ask for music to be turned down. The place was packed and noisy with chatter so really no need for loud music by that time. Usually the food hereis terrific. I normally have roast beef but I opted for turkey. Disappointing. Hadnt been cooked on a who,e bird and carved. It was very dry, which's always a danger. Staff asever very good.

Roast dinner was pretty average, had some nice beers on and service was good, especially from the young lady from Essex with the Italian accent.

Went as part of a group and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Food portions for Sunday lunch were generous and very well prepared. Service to start with was a little bit slow and may have been a problem for anyone looking for a speedier lunch but it did not spoil our enjoyment. Good value for money.

We had booked a last minute lunch for 5 on Easter Day. A fabulous greeting was followed by a very friendly and efficient waitress. Food was all excellent, particularly the Pea and Stilton Soup and the Sea Bass. Most of us went for the traditional Roast Beef and it was a fine example of a Sunday roast. Strongly recommended with no caveats.

Very warm place with an unique atmosphere decorated with a vintage charm. Food was presented well though the sides of veggies could do with some more flavour - it was delish

Once again we enjoyed a lovely Sunday roast at The Paradise. Even though the restaurant was full the service was impeccable, the food delightful and apart from the very noisy table next to us the whole experience was faultless

We booked in for an early Mother’s Day meal on Saturday 30 March evening which coincided with a wedding reception being held at the venue. Despite huge demands being made on the service staff we were looked after impeccably. We were never left waiting and staff were pleasant and good humoured during a hectic shift. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. We hope the service staff are properly rewarded for their professionalism.

Unfortunately the service was very slow and the bill was expensive. It's a shame because the food was quite nice at the restaurant was nice.

Waiting 1 hour for food was unacceptable & I wish I mentioned something to the waitress. We still got charged £12.5 % service & for bread that we ordered for the children who were very hungry whilst waiting.

Hi David So sorry for the wait. We obviously always intend to get food served in a timely fashion and this is typically the case. We have been looking into what happened in your case to make sure it does not happen again. The service charge is always optional and we would have been happy to removed. Once again we apologise for your experience and can promise this is the exception rather than the rule. Thanks

Un repas exceptionnel, une cuisine raffinée, inventive et délicieuse, une déco So British, le bonheur d avoir été servi par Baila, aux petits soins tout au long du repas, et qui cerise sur le gâteau, parle français. Dommage que ce super moment soit perturbé par une ambiance assez bruyante a cause du pub à côté de la salle de restaurant.

We had a great space for our party of 9 and the staff were very pleasant although a bit forgetful.
The food was generally good but in honesty the starters were a shade pretentious as this is a great pub but not fine dining.
The roast dinner lacked a wow factor and the guys that ordered sea bass and risotto were left wanting with the presentation.
Lastly no deserts with custard available and the 3 slices of cheese on the cheeseboard were a joke for 9.50!
Overall nice but restaurant prices for upmarket pub cuisine - only go if you have a few bob to spend 😉

Joan and I did enjoy our dining experience, my roast beef was a little on the chewy side no sauce was offered to me or my guest, we were cramped in the corner of the dining room roasts are the most popular item on eating on a Sunday I feel it was expensive for what was provided. Eating places must remain sharp in price I also feel that food should be served in front of the diner and not the entire meal as now is the custom, ice should be placed in the glass when offered, Gin and tonic should always have a slice of lemon
