Having had afternoon coffee here twice since the refurbishment we decided to bring the family in for an evening meal. The restaurant now is exceptional, and we have eaten here off and on since 1988, it's a real transformation. The staff were so helpful and courteous, explaining the minute detail of the menu etc. The food was well cooked, a...

As locals we have been many times over the years, mainly for the excellent Sunday carvery. The newly redesigned interiors are a revelation, excellent lighting and colours, with a fantastically improved bar area. The dining room is relocated to the other side of the ground floor to where it was and is softened by bookcases dividing much of the space...

I came in with two friends for dinner, more of a spur of the moment thing as we all approached the end of our working day, and thought, we'd been having drinks a few times here since the renovation, why not try a meal. First of all I must complement the decor, really tastefully done and a much more open...

First visit for a very long time - great to see such a grand old building finally having a much needed face-lift and revamp. Warm welcome from the staff when we visited here last weekend for a meal in the new restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised at how much choice there was on the menu. Very reasonably priced and...

What a huge improvement. I only called in for a drink but look forward to dining there, food smelled good and dining room was busy. Warm, welcoming and modern. Stone flag floor, sofas and tables. The back 'snug' bar looked unchanged from before but was too busy to tell.

Hello Katie M, I'm pleased to hear you approve so much of the changes and improvements made to the Lansdowne Strand! In order to keep the fantastic character and cosyness of the paneled snug we haven't done much apart from giving it a good spruce up, a french polish and a lick of paint. Hopefully see you again soon, Anna

Since the face-lift the hotel and restaurant have had the restaurant has improved significantly. The staff were helpful and friendly, the service was good and the food was excellent. The only down side was the temperature of the dining room which was decidedly chily. The price of the meal was very reasonable - there finally a good restaurant in Calne...

Hello Chullyc, It's lovely to hear such positive comments following your recent visit but I am sorry to hear you couldn't dine in absolute comfort owing to a slight chill. Rest assured we have added further heating and are very much looking forward to getting each and every one of our fires roaring once our new log burner is fitted!...

Great food, reasonable prices, good service BUT ..... they have moved the main dining area into what used to be the function room and the problem there is that the fireplace backs onto the lounge area fireplace so they share a chimney. The lounge fireplace was lit but the dining room one wasn't so the smoke kept coming into the...

Hello Sue R, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Unfortunately the fireplace has been somewhat un-cooperative of late and I apologise for the impact this had on your recent visit.

I went here on my birthday. Long wait to be served and there were only five elderly people in there. Stayed for a glass of mulled wine. Not much selection on menu given at bar. No atmosphere. No music. Very boring and disappointing
