“Excellent late lunch”

Having read and heard great reviews, we thought we’d try The Penguin Lounge for a late lunch today. We were thoroughly impressed. Parking was easy in the car park behind the Lounge, and we were welcomed warmly and shown to our table. It was 2pm and the restaurant was not over crowded. Service was attentive and the menu choice was excellent. We chose a roast dinner and a vegetarian option from the set menu, which was under £10 for one course, £14 for two and £18 for three. The food arrived quickly, was beautifully presented and was hot and delicious.The portion size was just right, and we had room for dessert afterwards. We both chose the chocolate fudge icecream mug, which was lovely, and a perfect way to finish off dinner. The staff were attentive and cheery, and the whole experience was wonderful. We will definitely be back to try more of the menu.
