Mr Fred's Bar & Lounge
We had a WONDERFUL waiter called Gabriel who was amazing. He recommended certain dishes, and was extremely helpful. The food was excellent!
Had a delishious lunch of , mushroom soup, prawn sandwich and my husband had fish and chips. All fresh , finest ingredients and not at all greasy. In the evening we had a wonderful meal. I had a fabulous trio of beetroot with whipped goats cheese and a truffle and sage risotto my husband had soup and a chicken and mushroom pie with spring greens.
We arrived approximately 10 minutes early for our 11.30am booking... we were seated at our table but unable to order until 11.30 as they don't start serving until 11.30?!
Anyway, we only wanted something light, so we ordered tuna mayo & beef sandwiches and 2 side orders of chips.
A nice sandwich to me would be a cool tuna filling on soft bread, not bread that felt either 'on the turn' or had been in the fridge. ... the chips were bruised too.
£37 for 3 sandwiches, 2 breakers of bruised chips & 3 soft drinks. On the plus side nice, friendly staff & a lovely location and as we were celebrating a birthday we received 2 chocolates as a surprise which was a lovely touch.
Had a lovely birthday lunch with my husband, we were greeted with a celebratory glass of Prosecco ( or champagne if preferred) The staff were friendly and attentive, really enjoyed the occasion. Excellent food and ambience.
Nice food with great service. Been here a few times now and always enjoy. Will be sad to see it go
Friendly attentive service, tasty food, would definitely return
Excellent service and food as always. Married here Easter Sunday 2019 and was our first time back
Great food, great friendly service.
Went for nye so had live music. They did shut a little early though at 11pm
Absolutely loved the food and love the restaurant. My husband had steak, which he asked for rare. Not many places do it to perfection, but Mr Fred’s did. I had cod and chips, which might sound boring but the cod was chunky and moist and the batter just right. Can’t recommend it enough.
We went on New Years Eve and there was a singer in the bar, who was great.
Took nearly 40 mins for our starter and then it was very dry. Restaurant was only a third full but they only had on 2 servers. Food was average and staff were overworked. Disappointing as we have had great experiences in the past.
We had a fabulous meal for my birthday! The staff were very attentive and the food was excellent!! Would highly recommend Fred's
We arrived for a Christmas Sunday lunch and were greeted by smiling faces. Had a lovely meal which was well presented. The service was both effective and pleasantly applied.
Had a very enjoyable lunch with a friend. Service was unobtrusive and efficient. We will be back.
Very disappointed with menu choice.
Cost very expensive
Portion size very small
Food not hot
Still hungry asked for sweet menu. Only had 2 hot choices - rice pudding very expensive too and banoffee pie.
Nothing like my previous visits
Will not be going back. Too expensive and poor menu. Sorry.
Excellent food and service can't wait to visit again
Very disappointing to experience almost a 40 minute wait for our main course after finishing our starters. When mine arrived, red chilli had been sliced to garnish the steamed plaice. Unfortunately my first mouthful included a small slice of chilli. This completely overpowered the delicate flavour of the plaice, and ruined not only that first mouthful, but the rest of the meal as well. Staff apologised but offered no other help. I was very surprised to find the bannoffee pie was hot. I did not enjoy hot banana at all and the biscuit base was warm gloopy. Can I suggest the menu mentions that the dish is served hot. If it had, I would not have ordered it. Taking this into account my experience is that my meal represented poor value for money.
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were made to feel welcome. The food was superb and the service attentive and very friendly, would definitely recommend and definitely come again
Excellent lunch beautiful peaceful place to eat had a lovely time food was lovely
Food was lovely, the chicken had so much flavour, and the sauce that went with the sticky toffee pudding was amazing. This was my birthday treat and some one very thoughtfully had written Happy Birthday in Chocolate around the rim of my pudding. Such a special extra touch.
Generally very pleasant. Not much in the way of signage to find your way in from the car park which was also very dark on returning to the car.
Staff were excellent, extremely welcoming and obliging, nothing was too much trouble. Food was good and very tasty if maybe a little expensive for what you received, although I did not feel I’d been overcharged for the whole experience.
Would definitely go again.
Fabulous food, and attention to detail. Would definitely recommend
Brilliant food. Great service and it was nice to be back there a year after our wedding. A warm welcome as always
A lovely dining area overlooking the beautiful gardens. Staff were friendly and very efficient. Food was absolutely excellent. Great value.
Excellent food as always & the staff are as attentive as ever without being intrusive. Was a little quiet for a Saturday night (due to a function upstairs) but that doesn’t bother us. Also with the 20% off the food side of things available all day every day, you simply cannot complain.
The attitude and service from the staff was outstanding. I realize that the restaurant was quiet, but none the less the friendliness of the girls that dealt with us made us feel as though we were celebrating a special occasion, and a massive thanks to them all.
The food was just as we expected as we have been before and as usual excellent.
The wedding party was in the bar nest door but we could not here them so the ambiance stayed at a level that was most enjoyable.
We have already praised you to our friends and family, so once again a great night
Mr Freds is a lovely place to sit and eat, the outlook is fantastic. Someone takes the time and trouble to keep the gardens looking wonderful. When that kind of effort goes into the surroundings you know the venue cares about all aspects of the guest experience. Food amazing,in particular the hens egg and the wonderful rhubarb and custard. Will save up and visit again soon.
The staff here go that extra mile to make you feel welcome and the restaurant setting is just beautiful and perfect for any occasion.
Slightly awkward. We were probably the only person of colour there. Awkward service as there was no conversation. Booked the wrong service but nothing was done to fix that. I wouldn’t recommend for those who are more diverse as the service is slightly different and less conversation.
Excellent quality food with highly attentive staff
Went to Mr Fred’s for the first time. Took my best friend for a birthday afternoon tea treat and despite providing specific instructions on my reservation beforehand, no “happy birthday” message was written, and my specific dietary/allergy requirements (due to suffering from severe crohns and ulcerative colitis) weren’t catered for, so we had to send the food back and wait for it to be re-made - and then were rushed for time by the waiting service as they had to set up for dinner. Scones were served hard and cold. Appalled by the service, as I was told that all they could do was apologise. Won’t recommend.
The food was excellent and particularly well served. The young waiter gave much appreciated advice.
Lovely afternoon lunch with family, nice atmosphere and very clean
Pleasant and friendly welcome. Really nice environment and good food.
Everything about Mr Fred's is consistently great with the one exception of the noise level. This is not due to rowdy customers but to deflection of noise bouncing off all of the hard surfaces . It does make conversation very difficult over the meal and can easily be remedied with small changes to the décor that could absorb that tinny noise. For anyone who is even a little hard of hearing the background sounds are pretty unbearable.
Lovely setting, no rush, staff polite and helpful. Sandwichs were nicely presented and tasty but portions have reduced since previous visit would have liked more sandwich.
We love Stanley House. We visited on Sat to celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary (our wedding was at Stanley house). The staff were amazing we were greeted with a complimentary glass of champagne and well wishes from staff. The food was as always amazing and nothing was to much trouble . Will continue to visit and enjoy such a beautiful special venue. Thank you x
Lovely conservatory restaurant. We were looked after by superb staff from the moment we arrived. The food was delicious but portion sizes of some main courses were a little small for the price charged. My mother ordered the most sensational looking chocolate pudding, that she said was excellent. Although there was a wedding going on, we were not disturbed in the restaurant. My mother also has a walker and we found the restaurant really accessible for her. We will be back!
We love Mr fred’s And have been visiting since it opened. Staff are great friendly and helpful. Our favourite lunchtime sandwich remains delicious but is significantly smaller than it used to be for the cost. On this visit we had to order 3 sandwiches for 2 people to make sure we were full. This makes it a costly lunch which is a shame as it will limit the amount of visits we make.
As expected the new menu and the quality of food and service were excellent.
Outstanding lunch! Will go there again! Very relaxing atmosphere to eat in!
