Having enjoyed the taster menu at the Simon Radley Restaurant at The... More

Very plush and traditional dining room in a fine hotel. Due to motorway breakdowns we were going to be 40 mins late but they kept the kitchen open for us. We all had the tasting menu and it was excellent, good wine flight to accompany it. Staff were great and I can highly recommend this place for a special occasion... More

Being honest, I didn't think much if the lawns on first impression. The dining room feels very much like the dining or drawing room of a rarely home and whilst familiar at breakfast, felt odd at dinner. That said, never fear. The food itself is great. It is very expensive so I would encourage making use of the early bird... More

We visited with my partner's mother, gran and gran's friend, who came from Yorkshire, for afternoon tea as a little treat for Mother's Day. The afternoon tea consists of hot drinks (loose leaf tea's coffee or hot chocolate), finger sandwiches, cakes/sweets, scones, jams and curds. To make it easy as possible all you have to do is choose your hot... More
