The new menu is similar to the old one. Food is lovely. I have tried a number of mains and all have been excellent. The new deserts, namely the jam folly polly and the bread and butter pudding, are welcome additions and are very nice....Well recommended.More

Haven't been for a while but was tempted by the good offers available. Staff were friendly and attentive especially Matthew and the food was served piping hot and portion size was very good. The price we paid was amazing value. Will be back!

Wasn’t expecting a meal and service for the savoy London but very poor service from sitting down and ordering drinks to paying at the end as the member of staff argued with every choice we made. We were ordering the wrong drinks to biting in...to my chicken burger to find it was chicken goujons as they had run out of chicken burgers x2 and brown Coleslaw to asking to talk to a senior staff and getting shouted at terrible behaviour around.More

Staff were helpful when it come to the food allergies. Staff were very helpful and up for a laugh. Prices of the meals were great and there was a good range of food. Part of the restaurant is a very old building, which was nice...to see.More

Found the staff so friendly and helpful. They were brilliant with my grandaughter who wanted everything that was not on the menu ! The fish pie would warrant another visit soon.

We arrived around 6.30. Asked weather we had booked. I explained I tried but website wouldn’t let me and no one would answer the phone. She said well we could have a table in the bar. I said ok would the food take long. Oh...no she assured me. We found a table and my husband went to the bar to get drinks. 10 minutes later he eventually came back. Only one person serving!! We ordered food at 6.52. I was having nachos as a main as didn’t fancy anything else and others just having mains so wanted them all out at the same time. At 7.40 my husband went to ask where our food was. We were told we were next!! 10 minutes later it arrived. The nachos were awful. So soggy so I’m guessing they were done early on and left as the topping had dried out too. The others mains were ok. We came about a year ago and it was awful then. Wanting to give it another try. We did. Never againMore
