We had a lovely time when we visited on the 3rd May. Even though it was heavily raining, the outdoor area was just fine. We arrived early for our booking and got sat promptly and the table was well under cover. There was a heater above us so were kept warm. The service was fantastic, the staff were always there to get us more drinks and the food was delicious. We had a lovely time and will definately be back. Thank you to all the staff working in these strange times. You're all doing a fab job.

The Pavilion has plenty of outdoor seating, with booked dining having overhead heaters and fully covered, which makes the world of difference regardless of weather.

The service was fantastic, with friendly and attentive staff. They also continue to kindly provide emergency services discounts which is very kind.

The food and drink selection was reasonable, with a little bit for everyone, although vegetarian options were limited to 3 main meals from my recollection: pizza, halloumi burger or halloumi curry. They’ve also stopped their lovely chorizo starters which would fit the patatas bravas dish well (we had a tapas style starter between the group).

Overall it’s recommendable and a lovely place to eat and drink with friends. Thanks for a nice experience.

The 2 male members of staff on shift deserve a lot of praise for their outstanding customer service. It must be the best service I have received in a long time. They truly made the first lunch after lockdown worth the wait. The food was extra hot to accommodate for the wind outside and was so quickly made and served. Their outdoor area is well spaced with heaters to ensure a comfortable visit. I would recommend the Pavilion even more now than I had done before.

Very comfortable and modern outdoor eating area with the facility of another outdoor area to have further drinks.
Service was great, very speedy and the food was delicious.
The only negative is the latte coffee soon went cold due to the large rimmed cups, maybe try the tall slim glass ones which keep it hotter for longer.

This was our first visit to a restaurant after national guidance had been lifted. Our waiter (tall, blonde hair, male) sorry I forgot the name was brilliant. He attended to all needs promptly and professionally and definitely had good banter! Making our experience relaxed and comfortable. The food was delicious! Arrived at the table hot and we didn’t have a long wait. We also had dessert which again was delicious and well presented. The only slight negative was the cost of drinks 2 pints and a 500ml bottle coming in at just under £15, however we thought that the food was priced accordingly.
Overall, our experience was fantastic, we have previously dined at the pavilion and have always found the service and food excellent. We are happy to continue to support local business and will be booking again in the near future.
