One rather felt one should have dressed for dinner but it was unnecessary. The food was good and tasty. The service was very efficient and speedy.

I don't normally have fish and chips in a hotel that's what fish and chip shops are for but my taste buds fancied fish and chips and it was on the menu, the haddock fillet was encased in a light crispy batter the chips I think were individually hand crafted with home made tartar sauce surprisingly tasty.

Set in a majestic building in attractive grounds, this restaurant does good food. The restaurant itself is light and a comfortable place to eat. There is the added attraction that Charlie Chaplin stayed several times.

This resturant probably trades on former glory it is old tired and out of date the food is not great on average at best and not that warm

We dined here as part of a DBB deal. The friendly waitress prepared a lovely table for us as we had made the effort to dress for dinner. It disappoints us that so few people bother these days. There was a good choice of food and wine including the Bar Menu if you preferred. We both had a lovely cream... More

We had the three-course menu for dinner and were very pleasantly surprised. It was creative and very good. Service is friendly and efficient and we felt very well taken care of both for dinner and the three breakfasts we enjoyed here.

Ate here while staying at the Newton Hotel. We had dinner and 2 breakfasts. My wife and I both felt the food was very bland and lacked seasoning. Our dinner main courses were disappointing. The sirloin steak was very fatty and had no flavour even when served with a pepper sauce. My ham steak was dry and again lacked flavour.... More

Restaurant surroundings very drab and dull, sorely in need of some tender love and care or even a lick of paint. Menu was varied and food good in the main part but desserts seemed shop bought and definitely not prepared in the kitchen.
