    We went for festive afternoon tea and unfortunately we were quite disappointed. The Sandwiches were quite dry and hard and the rest was quite bland and shop bought. The hotel was beautiful though and the servers were attentive and kind.

    Stale bread.. sticky tables, staff could barely speak English.. very poorly trained. Asking questions about the menu to a blank face was ridiculous. Stale bread and when told it was stale it was taken away and put into a toaster and given back saying it was fresh bread.. GIVE THIS PLACE A WIDE BIRTH.. especially if you have dietary requirements. Disgracefully disgusting

    I've dined in a Michelin star restaurant before and this experience was not far off. I chose the restraunt as it had venison on the menu. All dishes were excellently presented, and the flavours were subtle and layered, most impressive and highly recommended.

    Limited choice, service good but too formal. Menu needs to be reviewed, this is a traditionally English Hotel, the food should reflect the very best of English food. Bring back the steak and Kidney pudding

    We’ve been to the restaurant a few times now and always really enjoyed it but this time was a bit disappointing. Staff, as always were brilliant and food was good but service was very slow . It was a 90th birthday family get-together so we all enjoyed ourselves but we felt as though we were an afterthought in terms of service. I know the hotel was in the middle of major works which must have affected things and I know the staff were very busy. Won’t stop us going back though.

    I booked a table for their very well claimed to be restaurant. Used online booking tool. Booked for 4pm. My and my husband were looking forward for the night out. As we arrived, reception informed that the restaurant is open from 6pm only. Wasted time of booking, preparing, driving there. Such a disappointment that 4 star hotel and restaurant has no decent booking system.

    Really friendly staff. The waiting time for our main course was around an hour which was unacceptable. They did give us a small discount for the wait.

    The overall experience was very disappointing When we arrived these weren’t expected as the staff were not aware of our dining room booking nor were the kitchen. However the only saving grace being the staff as they were very helpful and clearly embarrassed at the overall situation Clearly the kitchen had not been told as the vegetables were cooked from frozen and not really what were on the menu. The beef turned out to be steaks rather than sliced beef. And a soup of the day starter had been made up from frozen. The overall cost was £ 220 for 4 although we had two bottles of wine at £28 each There was no way food of that quality should cost £40. Per head

    Staff not very attentive didn’t know sandwich filings festive tea was not as advertised no refills on the tea, no one came to check if all was well and seating area could be better. Been to better afternoon tea venues!
