Mumtaz Restaurant (Bradford)
I was disappointed with the food and service at Mumtaz. After a 20 minute wait we were seated, and then had to wait a further 40 minutes for any food, when our starters and main course were served together. The food tasted average, but given the many excellent competing Indian restaurants I will not be returning to Mumtaz.

I have visited Lambs of Sheep Street on two occasions and left delighted both times.

Fisherman's Lodge (Newcastle-upon-Tyne)
This place is somewhere quite special! If you like seafood and want the best then this place is for you. It's not cheap and the drinks are very expensive but for all you fans of a Bloody Mary get one of the house specials. It consists of two good measures of vodka, fresh tomato juice, crushed garlic, crushed chilli, a dash of Tabasco, a dash of Worcestershire sauce and topped off with a stick of celery! Absolute bliss!! Service is excellent, food fantastic, a real special treat!

Maison Bleue (Bury St Edmunds)
My family and I have eaten here on numerous occasions over the last few years and have never been disappointed. All the staff are friendly and accommodating - especially as my mother is in a wheelchair. This has never been a problem to them - although I would suggest that you inform them in advance if you are in the same situation as not the entire restaurant is wheelchair friendly. A brilliant restaurant - one we know won't let us down!

Porters English Restaurant (Covent Garden & Theatreland)
My husband and I dined here last August and plan on dining here once again this coming August 2004. I had a wonderful Steak, Guinness, and Mushroom Pie whilst my husband had very good Beer Battered Cod with Chips. We had to be brave and muddled on to absolutely delicious puddings. I had the Tipsy Summer Pudding whilst my husband had Steamed Syrup Sponge. My recommendation is: If you have a chance to dine here ... grab it!!!

The Horn of Plenty (Tavistock)
We turned up out of the blue, not dressed for the occasion or with any preparation. We'd just been down to see some friends in the nearby village of St. Annes Chapel.
Luckily for us they had a single table free for the evening. We were early for dinner so we were asked if we would like to take drinks in the reception room before dinner. Log fire, comfy sofas, a full size cafetiere of very smooth coffee and a glass of merlot.
The food served was wonderful, we were served a parsnip soup with freshly made wholegrain bread and rolls as a brief appetiser before our starter. For starters I had a grilled partridge breast with parmesan tuilles, my partner had a salmon mouse with tempura fried king prawns. Both were exquisitely delicious. The main course quickly followed. I had venison served on a bed of red cabbage with lightly fried vegetables surrounded by a rich red wine sauce. My partner had roast pork with blue cheese ravioli in a mushroom sauce. The selection of after dinner teas, coffees and ports was excellent. For desert I had a chocolate mouse with jaffa orange sorbet and fresh glazed orange. My partner had ginger sponge with poached pears and pear compote.
The meal was a fixed cost of £39.50 per person. Pre and after dinner drinks were extra.
The service was low key and excellent. Our glasses of water were topped up regularly from an iced jug, there were always staff around to service any need.
The restaurant is located in an idyllic setting though as it was dark we could not really see anything.
The service was excellent. There are many 'extras' that I have not included in this description. We never felt anything but wanted and cared for.

Lake Restaurant at St Michael's Manor Hotel (St Albans)
Very posh restaurant, food of a high quality small portions but very filling. Reasonable priced 3 courses for £40. Good wine choice as usual, with restaurants this is where they make their money! Very enjoyable dining experience, with immaculate waiter service.
