We had a fabulous Buffett here for all our members we have an outing most years for all our children with disabilities and their families
Peter the manger was brilliant and provided a lovely Buffett, fantastic homemade fish goujons, chicken breast nugget, fries , jacket potatoes, coleslaw tuna mayo and a big salad enough for everyone even ice lollies for everyone and Liam looked after us on the day and was very attentive
Everyone got to look round the animals too and we were blessed with a sunshiny day.
SHAUN AND JAMES, AUGUST 2019
“Me and my partner James got married here in August 2019 and it was the perfect venue for the wedding. Peter who is the manager and Wedding Coordinator couldn’t do enough to ensure we had the perfect day. The food provided on the day was a BBQ and it was excellent, everybody who attended complimented the high quality of the food. On the day itself, Peter and his staff were friendly, approachable and were all dedicated to ensuring that we both had the perfect day. The venue itself is set next to a very picturesque lake and gardens and is the ideal location for wedding photography. Between the venue location, to the staff and the excellent food, Lakeside is the perfect wedding venue!”

Our first and definitely not last visit to Lakeside restaurant.
Excellent Sunday carvery and superb service. Very quickly greeted by the smartly dressed and well trained waiting staff, straight to a table of our choice and order for drinks and starters taken and fulfilled. This is a slick professional operation, very friendly waiting and serving staff, the manager walking around talking to diners and making sure all is is in order. The meat is well cooked and good quality. The lamb was stunning a beef very tender. The chef carving the joints of meat actually asking if you would prefer a more rare of well cooked slice of meat – very unusual and very welcome.
Veg were al dented which isn’t a bad think as carvery veg can be soggy and disappointing. Excellent food and service, thank you to our waitress Holly who was excellent and cheery.
MR AND MRS KELLY, OCTOBER 2018
“Me and my partner decided to get married at ponderosa and I can’t thank Peter and the lakeside team enough. There has been plenty of ups and downs but the day was just amazing from start to finish. If we was stressed the team was there if we needed anything at all they were. Everyone enjoyed the food so big thank you to the chef who also remembered us before Peter started that meant a lot to us. Peter really goes above and beyond to make your big day so special we can’t thank you enough for everything. We would recommend having a wedding or function here any day. The scenery is just magical for all the perfect pictures.”

We held our Residents’ Federation AGM there this week and it was excellent. The buffet lunch prepared by Liam and his staff was delicious, plenty of choice, catered for all tastes. Nothing was too much trouble either. I somehow think we will be returning……!
