Just ate in Lord Prawn tonight- waited 30 minutes to be served after sitting down. Another 60 minutes for starter to arrive and a further 60 minutes for main course. No discount, no apology - no tip! Food was good but some serious mismanagement .More

I love prawns. I really do and am super fussy about quality. I must say that I really enjoyed my 1kg of queens. My wife opted for a calamari combo and my 2 1/2 yr old was able to eat comfortably from the kiddie menu....We had halloumi as a starter and honesly, it was just ok, but the star of the show were the prawns. Crisp, fresh and the sauces were delicious. Will definitely return.More

Great service , the food was excellent well presented . The only down side for me is the smoking policy , we were not told that the “outside seating” that we were told to use was a smoking area. Not sure if this is allowed...during this time. Otherwise the food was great !More
