Having read all the rave reviews, we thought the Grand would be a good choice for a pre Christmas Sunday lunch celebration. There was some confusion regarding our booking and we were led to several tables which were hurriedly pulled together for the six of us. The restaurant itself is beautiful but the high ceilings and open areas do encourage sound to travel and it was remarkably noisy, especially as it was not full. The menu is straightforward and offers a variety of traditional, British food. Half the group opted for the set Sunday menu but failed to make it to dessert thanks to the ample portions. Highlights from the main courses included the battered fish (interestingly accompanied by shoestring fries rather than chips) and the bubble and squeak, both of which were simple and yet elegantly done. For dessert, the custard tart came very highly rated! Service was fine; perfectly polite but could have been a little more attentive. We can only assume it has been more on form in the evenings. We were in no rush and it was nice to take our time over the meal but the food was slow to appear. All in all, we enjoyed the meal but feel that the surroundings made the meal for us, rather than the food.
