What a lovely and unusual venue! I was treated to a surprise meal for my birthday last night and loved it. Really enjoyed the view from the restaurant. Watching the water sports on the lake was an entertaining edition to the very comfortable surroundings. Service was a little slow at the beginning and end of the meal but there was a large group in so that may be why? The service during the rest of the meal was perfect, very efficient, friendly and polite. The food was outstanding. Crab arancini to start, swordfish for main. Both absolutely delicious, the swordfish was cooked perfectly. No room for dessert but will definitely try next time. Will be going back soon to see what Sunday lunch is like.

Service was very poor and very slow, compounded by the manager who argued and laboured his point!!
I believe he just wanted a fight.....very aggressive, to the point he then left the restaurant and drove away..
Water Sports Guys were great, but won’t be returning!!

We have no recollection of this and without any more details available, it is difficult to respond.

The only incident we can think of amongst management was a couple of weeks ago, when we had to ask a gentleman to stop swearing whilst sitting out on our decking area outside. This was after a complaint from a table of customers nearby. If this is what you are referring to then we entirely stand by our actions, as we are a family friendly venue and other customers should not have their experience spoilt by crude language of others. Our staff mentioned this discreetly and politely to begin with but then after 15 minutes of arguing the point, was then asked to leave. Prior to this a number of our female staff had also complained about the way they were spoken to by this customer.

We welcome everyone onto our site and aim to provide a safe, relaxing and friendly venue for all our guests of any ages to enjoy. Consequently have a zero tolerance approach to this sort of behaviour.

If this is not the incident that you are referring to then perhaps you could get in contact with us directly and provide some more information and details. Then we can look into and investigate this some more as we are unaware of any issues recently.

First time we have been to corner 5 having heard excellent things about it and we were not disappointed. The service was polite and very efficient, the Sunday roast was amazing! Excellent portion size and very tasty. The puddings were beautifully presented and tasted fab!
Whilst we were there an elderly gentleman was taken ill and the staff were brilliant with the family keeping calm whilst waiting for an ambulance whilst ensuring all other guests were still served promptly.
We can’t wait to go back!

Attended for a family Birthday Party. Great venue for a party and a well stocked bar. The team behind the bar were great and managed to bring some more flavours of Gin up from the main bar which was a nice touch. The food was very nice and there was a good selection, much better than your usual party buffet. I also noticed how reasonable the bar prices were. A great night had by all.
