Absolutely 100% service, value for money. The service was efficient yet professional, especially Emily, our server. The Lawrence should be very proud to have Emily as part of their family.

Mike, Claire and Josh made us so welcome. The Lawrence is a gorgeous and you can tell that everyone takes great pride in keeping it this way. The food choice we had on a Thursday £30 deal was impressive, even though we just went for the JFK burgers - and peri peri fries very tasty, would recommend. 5 Star with Hettie being an added delight.

Not one to usually give 10/10 for everything but the service, drinks and food were all top quality. The burgers were absolutely insane!! Raffy who was serving us was so lovely and attentive as well and the assistant manager who’s name I’ve gone blank on, he was so lovely and polite, even recommended a few things on the menu to us. Keep up the good work!

The service and the food was amazing can’t be faulted. The reason for 9/10 for overall experience is, we didn’t get Yorkshire puddings on our roast dinner and although the waiter apologised and said he would tell the chef nothing more was said about it

As this was an outside experience and a cold one at that, the Lawrence did do well for trying yo make us as warm as possible but as it was open on 3 sides as per the guidance we were all a little drafty. The food was amazing as usual. Some background music may have been nice in helping dull the traffic noise and provide a little atmosphere. We will definitely be back.
