Lively venue staff and food. Very disappointed as when booking the afternoon tea for 2 price was £17 shown in email and posters in the toilets when I questioned the price of £19..90 I was told the menu had changed on the day of reservation so that price was no longer valid. Would of been nice to know before I had the bill

Service was a little slow waited an hour for our main meal, yes it was a graduation day but the restaurant was not full. This is the second time i have been to the Dome tjis yezr both times servicd has been slow. Also I was almost charged for a meal that we didn't have. Enjoyed the food and surroundings but staff need to be a little more attentive.

After being seated we were ignored for 20 minutes and had to ask for our order to be taken, followed by an hour wait for our afternoon tea. People on the table next to us complained three times due to the same treatment especially since it was a very quiet afternoon with the restaurant not even being a quarter full. I wanted to treat my mum and we were both left disappointed and would never go again despite the lovely view.

Very good service, although one or two mistakes were made. Staff very polite and helpful. Not a vast choice but covered most appetites. All in all very good value for money. Could do with two members of staff attending bar during busy times.

As this was for afternoon tea, I've marked the service down because I didn't feel that we should have waited half an hour for a couple of sandwiches and a few pieces of cake to be prepared On my previous visit my Sunday roast didn't take as long to be delivered.Otherwise a pleasant experience.

Answer phone when booking (even though I know it's rarely busy enough to warrant that) menu not diverse (unless it's now a fish restaurant?), 2 requests were ignored, staff were miserable, shabby decor and the big table at the back was being used as an office. I expect more from somewhere that is charging £13 for a burger and onion rings.

We were sat at our table waiting for 10-15 minutes and no one approached us so I had to ask to order. The afternoon tea took quite a while to come out and when it did we didn't get out pots of tea until we had nearly finished the food. The food was nice although one bit of fruit cake I had was so thin it was a joke. The food was nice but the service was poor. We were not approached to ask if everything was ok and were not approached for ages after we had finished so I had to find someone to ask for the bill. Lovely view and not food (although I have had better) but poor service.

Lovely afternoon tea with lovely view of Plymouth Sound. Excellent value as we had a 2-4-1 voucher but would still be good value at full price. The only small criticism is that it would have been nice to have been offered more tea to go with all the delicious food.

After being shown promptly to our table by the window, we were anticipating a good dining experience such as we have experienced in the past but it wasn't so. It was ages before someone came to the table to take our order, we felt we were invisible as staff wiped tables around us. We then waited ages for our drinks and the water we ordered wasn't there. An even longer wait for the starters, which when they eventually arrived were lovely. Another long wait for the main course for both us and a table behind us, and to make it worse, a couple came in and were served immediately with a main course, in fact they had finished eating before we had ours! When eventually the main courses came they were disappointing as the gnocchi was hot and the pork fine but the vegetables were luke warm, and I had no Yorkshire pudding or parsnips on my plate. The potatoes described as "crispy roast" were certainly not crispy and not hot. When we paid the bill the waitress asked us if everything had been OK but when we told her not and why, there was no reaction or apology. Altogether a very poor experience.

We booked a table for Sunday lunch yesterday for 5 adults and one child. Table was laid out for 4 adults and 1 infant so we had to be moved. When our drinks were bought to the table one waitress bumped in to our waitress which caused the glasses to tip and a glass of wine went all over the table and high chair as well as the glass which broke over the table (luckily my niece wasn't sat in the high chair at the time). When the bar man came over with a fresh set of drinks the table behind us called him over, he ignored them and continued to walk out and he told another waitress to tell them he didn't work in the restaurant! Completely rude! Our mains came out warm, not hot like it should be and 2 of them were sent back because they were cold and needed to be warmed back through and my nieces food was also going cold when it was put down but try getting a plate of food away from a nearly 2 year old. The carrots were hard so were left and there was no crackling with the pork like it states on the menu. The puddings were ok but took a while to come out. I'd also like to know why the adults Sunday lunch menu is 2 courses for £8.95 when the children's is 2 courses for £9.95 how does that work? The only thing that's bumped this review up to 2 stars is how friendly our waitress was. If it hadn't been for her this would be a 1 star review. I certainly will not be coming back and I will not be recommending this restaurant!
