Came for afternoon tea, service and food was excellent as always, more expensive than some places we’ve been. Can not wait to return.
I love restaurant 178 and chose it for our Ruby Wedding celebrations with our party of 12. I'm not sure if it was because there was a large party but I wasn't completely happy with the food on this occasion. I was disappointed with some of the starters especially the mushroom pâté which looked like dog food on the plate and had 3 edamame beans placed on the top - very strange combination indeed. Unfortunately, by the time we were all served our main course, mine (although cooked beautifully) was stone cold. My daughter's steak had to go back because she asked for medium-rare and it was well done when it came. That delayed our meal. I didn't say anything at the time as I think it would have spoilt the evening with our friends but as I was paying the entire bill, I wasn't fully satisfied. The service and atmosphere are great in this restaurant and it won't put me off coming again because we've always had great food in the past.
Brilliant service from the moment we arrived to when we left.
Dining at Fairlawns is always a pleasurable experience. Food is a feast for the eyes as well as the palette and the welcome is warm with service to make you feel as if you are the only table in the room. Formal but friendly for any occasion.
We had a wonderful evening . The food was superb and the service, as always, was second to none. I would not hesitate to recommend Fairlawns for any occasion and we are looking forward to visiting again soon.
Great service and lovely food, but food on Sunday lunch is not as good as weekend evening meal. Very helpful staff though and couldn't do enough for you.
I took my mom for mother’s day meal which was a four course meal with a prosecco on arrival and tea and coffee at the end. For £35 each this was outstanding value, the food was no skimped on which o though it would be there was plenty it was all hot and tasted delicious. The staff were polite friendly and made it a really special day for mom. There was not one thing I could of faulted. I will be booking again for next year. Outstanding
Came for Mother's day lunch even though my mum was not feeling great we still had a lovely time. The food was delicious. Service was great. They were very attentive, friendly and made us feel really welcome throughout the meal. There was no rush to leave and we were left at our own pace which was great. Can't thank them enough for a lovely meal for Mother's day.
We had an amazing experience for Afternoon tea. The food was delicious with free flowing tea and coffee. From the moment we arrived the staff were attentive, polite and helpful. They are a credit to your business. A wonderful afternoon. Thank you
We have been to Fairlawns for a spa day and could not fault it. So I decided to take my mum for Mother's Day. We had a great time, the food was delicious and the staff were friendly, welcoming and polite. Due to it being Mother's Day the price was slightly higher, however I do it was a little too expensive considering there was nothing particularly 'extra special' we did get a glass of Prosecco each but it states on their website that you get that all year around. Overall, I was highly recommend.

Lovely Sunday Lunch for my Birthday
We had a thoroughly enjoyable visit with an excellent lunch served by friendly pleasant staff
we have been to fairlawns meany times before yet again first class what more can you say food great staff great every thing was great thank you all very much for a supper day
As always a delicious meal with attentive service
We thoroughly enjoyed our time and meal at Fairlawns, the service at all times was excellent, friendly and helpful at every occasion. We had the Sunday lunch menu, three of us had the fruit starter which was only thing we were a little disappointed with, there was a distinct onion flavour to it which detracted from the fresh flavour. The main course was delicious, which consisted of roast meats cooked to our liking and a wide selection of vegetables. A lovely selection of tempting sweets which were enjoyed by all. Many thanks for a wonderful time.
