    Food was good . Service wasn’t waiter was very sarcastic!! And slow !! Waited Hour after we finished main to have our pudding order to be taken gave up went back to our room as we couldn’t find anyone . Receptionist came to tell us we hadn’t paid . Maybe as we couldn’t find anyone then overcharged with a bottle wine £21 that was actually included in our room deal . Eventually refunded

    I went to The Burford Bridge for lunch with a couple of friends. It took around 40 mins for us to receive menus, only after I went looking for someone to ask! then once we had ordered sandwiches it took around another 30 mins to receive them. The sandwiches were made with what looked like hovis 50:50, I had a ham and mustard sandwich which to be honest contained more mustard than ham and I paid around £10.50 for that and a cup of tea. My friend was going to book for her and about 10 other friends to go for lunch, she will now be going to Denbies! There was a wedding going on today so maybe the kitchen and staff were being utilised for that, which is understandable, but either get more staff in or don't take bookings from outside. Unfortunately, I won't be recommending the restaurant to other people.

    We had a nice enough meal here..the food was fine, pleasant, home cooking, not as refined as photos online would suggest the waiting staff were attentive and friendly, if a little informal. The dining room itself is nice, spacious and calm..however the table was very odd, no tablecloth, and two big chips out of the laminate top. The flatware and glasses were perfectly clean, but cheap and basic. The biggest challenge however was the atmosphere - there was a large table of work colleagues near us and it was sometimes difficult to hear each other over them. Worst, was that a father and daughter, about 6 or 7 were sitting in the next table and she was loudly listening to a cartoon on a tablet! No headphones, just the sound of a tinny, loud cartoon, next to our 'trying to be romantic' anniversary dinner. Being English we didn't say anything. But I can't believe the waiting staff didn't have a discrete word. We realized that this is more of a general hotel dining room, not a destination restaurant. It was OK, but we wouldn't return..

    We stayed overnight at the Burford Bridge Hotel eating dinner and breakfast at the Emlyn Restaurant. The dinner main course - fish and chips - was very good but the dessert - sticky toffee pudding - was adequate but nothing special. We couldn't fault the staff but got the feeling that they could have done with additional help. This was especially evident at the buffet breakfast which, in itself, we couldn't fault; however, the staff were clearly too busy and, therefore, unable to check if items at the buffet were running low resulting in guests having to ask them to replenish empty dishes. I had to ask them twice, with an interval of 20 minutes between, before they finally replenished one particular item (not a cooked item). Even the coffee ran out which resulted in the staff, who were already stretched, having to fetch individual cups of coffee from the hotel bar. I do not know whether the problem lies with the Burford Bridge Hotel or with the Emlyn Restaurant but it detracted from what was a very enjoyable stay.

    Tables not crowded and restaurant not busy so we were able to hear each other talk. Staff attentive and pleasant but seemed unsure of wine list and menu details.

    Spacious, nicely decorated restaurant in a lovely old building, with beautiful views of the trees changing colour on Box Hill. The food was much better than you'd expect at the price, and the service was excellent, friendly and attentive but unobtrusive. A big plus was being able to chat as we could hear each other easily - often a problem in restaurants with hard echo-y décor these days.

    I booked a table for afternoon tea to celebrate a friend's birthday. The service was courteous and not over bearing and the tea was delicious. Tasty finger sandwiches, a HUGE scone with cream and jam and then an assortment of dainty cakes. The atosphere was very cosy and pleasant and i would definitely visit again.

    Amazing Sunday lunch. Really delicious roast pork with all the trimmings. The best roast dinner I have ever eaten. Very attentive service and very nice wine. I would highly recommend and will be back very soon.

    It was my wifes birthday and we wanted to go somewhere a little different and for us, out of the way with a great dining experience for Sunday Lunch. We were not disappointed. Great engagement from the team from the moment we arrived and they continued to be attentive without being overwhelming - perfect balance. There are some great gems on the menu (lunch) as well as a couple that would do well to be brought up to that mark in my opinion. All things being considered, we really liked it. The Emlyn Restaurant was a great choice and we have already decided we are going back!
