Friends of mine from London and I went for our Christmas lunch at this venue and found it quite pleasant regarding atmosphere.. The decor is quite baroque with a nod in to luxury, the service was friendly and the staff very polite without being stuffy. The menu choice was standard with starters all regular fare. I was disappointed that the soup was lobster bisque therefore not a popular choice so I opted for the Parma ham and melon. Sadly the meat was a bit dry around the edges as was the fruit. Turkey being the main order of the day and not being a fan I chose the roast sirloin with Christmas trimmings and yorkshire pud. I'm pleased I did as it was cooked to perfection, succulent and plenty of it. My companions had the turkey and said it went down a treat. Dessert was fine. The Christmas pudding was as it should be ( delicious and warming ) as was my tiramisu ( without the warmth ). Our Merlot was the crowning glory and our glasses were topped up constantly by our wine waiter.
On the downside there was no dress code for such an opulent occasion. Most of the clientele were dressed accordingly however some customers looked like they had simply popped in for a Big Mac and large fries. I'm sorry but the management should discourage cut off jeans, leggings and tee-shirts on principal. Other than that I recommend The Pavarotti to anyone who enjoys fine dining.
