We arrived at 13:15 and it was very quiet, we were seated outside and waiting 25 minutes before getting up and leaving. I explained to the young waitress the reason for us leaving to which she replied ‘okay’ no apology or interest in our custom.

If it was busy I could understand…it was clear they’re just not in interested. We won’t be returning, there’s a lot nicer restaurants who want appreciate your custom!

The food was ok. There was only one choice of white wine which wasn’t great. It took 40 minutes to order food and I had to ask for a menu. People that came in after us had menus and ordered food and was served their food within 40 minutes. We were a little bit disappointed overall. I had booked a week beforehand.

I am one to usually rave about the Pavilion however last night was just not like them at all. As we were seated we saw another couple get up and leave due to having to wait too long, initially I thought nothing of it. It took at least 10 minutes to be given a menu and another 10 to be offered a drink. The wait for the starters was ridiculously as we were seated at 7pm and given the starters at 8pm - this in turn lost them some service as we ran out of time to have dessert or more drinks after we finished eating. Once our starters were cleared away, we were asked to repeat what our main courses were like they had lost track of orders in the kitchen.

The staff are all so lovely, I've been a few times now and the service has always been wonderful! They pay a lot of attention to customers and always ask if they need anything. The staff are the main reason we always go back and will continue to do so, they're a credit to The Pavillion.

We asked if there were any of the food offerers on the small plates like they used to but these have stopped. Also we booked the table for this time as we planned it around happy hour but was then told you no longer do the happy hour drinks either. This is still listed on your website so was a little disappointed to find out you no longer do them.

After 8 months of not being able to go out (the pavilion was the last place I went to), I’m happy that it still does not disappoint with its selection of drinks and food! The service is amazing too! Super friendly staff! ❤️

The service was good and the staff were pleasant.
We did not eat only had a few drinks.
It was good value for money to say it is in a main town setting.
Would have like to stay longer but the table had be rebooked after us . We did ask to stay and was told it had been rebooked despite there been lots of other tables free and the venue been nearly empty.
Would visit again and maybe try the food next time .
