This is what a couple of diners wrote about after recent visits to Tempus:
‘I had 4 friends coming from various parts of the county and chose Tempus to impress and it absolutely did. The food was superb quality and the staff worked around our error in times (part of the group arrived an hour early after mistaking the arrangements) professionally and without blinking. Well done Team Tempus.’ Rating 5/5
‘A catch up with good friends. Our meal was delicious and the service attentive without being intrusive. The staff were friendly, helpful and very professional. We were not rushed, the whole evening was very relaxed. The food was of a very high standard and great value for money. We will certainly book Tempus again, and very soon.’
This offer would be ideal for a pre-theatre meal, a night out with friends or a romantic dinner for two.
Tuck into today’s Big Deal from Tempus and have something to look forward to.
