I have been here for business, weddings and Sunday lunches! Each time I have really enjoyed the friendly, prompt service and overall think it's great value for money. Definitely one to try. The taster menu is usually great quality but I have been disappointed by one course only on one occasion. Parking occasionally a problem.

My husband and I along with our two sons enjoyed our first ever experience at The Grey Lady and we chose Christmas Day to do this. We wanted to go somewhere which we felt we would receive great service and splendid food. We have heard such great things through other people's experiences we decided it was time to find out...

Went to this place on recommendation to try the taster menu. The menu consists of 5 different dishes so individual and tasty which left our taste buds tingling. Service was excellent. Staff so attentive. Would highly recommend.

When we arrived, yes we were greeted at the door but then told our table was 'down there' the older woman that I assume was the manager was obviously serving another table whilst greeting us and...

Why, why does everywhere seem to subject Christmas menus on diners this time of year? Its great to push out mass produced food for office parties and charge a lot for it is the answer. Must also be a demand. By the time most read this review Xmas food will thankfully be over for another 11 months. So let's focus... More

I visited for a christmas lunch & the food was good & we were served in good time when they were busy. My colleague was left waiting for a while for his coffee and the waitress informed him that they only have 1 coffee machine & lots of coffees to make! She could have been more polite as we felt...
