“This is a great local place. I held my birthday party here and it went very well with good service and food. It was a bit of a gamble having never been there before, but it paid off and I will be going back!”

“I just enjoyed the lunchtime special at this bar; £6 for a neat little portion of the dinner special with a soft drink. Bargain, considering how good it tasted. Wasn't too large either. No need to stuff myself until dinner. The tunes here are pretty cool too and I like the big windows and front-&-back beer garden. An inordinate number of young pretty girls there too. Must be a university close by or something.”

“We went here with my son and wife and her in-laws from Greece. Atmosphere was good with muted (but not dim) lighting and low music volume and staff were attentive. Got a mix of starters with a houmous/salsa and pitta plate, warm bread baskets with oil and balsamic vinegar, halloumi coated in a lovely crumb, and spicy parmesan fritters. Mains ranged from steak and chips to an elegant scallop dish with courgette and carrot pasta/strips in vanilla butter, very delicate and scallops well cooked, although the vanilla butter may be something of an aquired taste. The father-in-law who is an incredibly fussy eater was happy with plain chargrilled chicken and chips, (a chicken burger without the bun!). Topped off with creme brulees and mango tiramisu it was a very good meal...Wine list has a good region and price range, definitely the best place in the area for dinner.”

“Last time I went was the last time due to this experience: I went in with a friend. Sat down and read through the menu, which was one side breakfast and the other lunch meals. We were the only people in the restaurant and we waited and waited while four members of staff stood behind the counter polishing cutlery, arranging glasses and generally clanking and bashing around. Eventually one came over, poised to order he jumped in first "sorry you can't sit there is reserved" no apology or politeness, it seemed absurd as the restaurant was empty and the exact same tables were everywhere, he asked us to choose any other table then walked off. We did this reluctantly. We had now been in there for 15 minutes, in all this he still didn't ask if we wanted anything. So my friend went to the counter and asked if we could be served, they all glared and the same man said 'you have to come to the counter for service' and carried on clanking cutlery at a deafening volume. By this point we felt totally unwelcome. After deciding to try and weather this bad experience we stayed however and got back up to order, both going for the breakfast only to be told by a really abrupt waitress, 'we don't do that during the afternoon' ..I explained it is unclear as it's on the menu and I'd had it before mid-afternoon. She just replied with 'well we don't' do it now'. All the while the other staff members just glared. Not once did they apologise for the confusion or ask if we wanted a drink or if we would like to choose anything else. We were so upset we just left. I live local and sadly know that many of my friends have had similar service. It's a real shame as the Oval lounge could be so much better. It has the advantage of being the only restaurant/bar of it's type in the vicinity and therefore seems to forget that customers have feelings and are the ones paying. Trying to be balanced the food is decent, the sunday lunch outstanding but it's loud and cramped and hot in there. There is one lovely, super-attentive waitress who is totally out of place amongst the rest of the sullen, hassled looking crew. Avoid this place it doesn't deserve your custom.”
