Slow service and food, tiny portions, staffing disorganised, very pricey, whole restaurant filing complaints throughout meal. Staff claiming fine dining as reason for above. Def not fine dining. Free wine given as apology but left hungry. Avoid

Plain and bland and from the freezer! I can't say much more than that really. All in all a poor experience and this hotel and restaurant should be a 1 star. POOR

Not fine dining at all, just very average. Staff friendly and attentive enough, but generally the food was slightly overcooked, dry and lacking sauce. It would do better to take 'fine dining' out of the title to manage people's expectations.

Description
Here’s a serious vote of confidence: Vespers Restaurant at the Apollo Hotel in Basingstoke was awarded an AA rosette within two weeks of opening. The Apollo is a luxury 4-star hotel and its 26-cover restaurant combines a warm and relaxed atmosphere with impressive cooking that looks as good as it tastes. Start with perfect smoked salmon, its richness sharpened with lemon and capers, and follow with tender chicken breast served with basil gnocchi and tomato sauce, or pan-fried lamb cutlets with a minted red wine jus. For dessert, orange tart comes with chocolate ice cream – a classic combination of flavours – and the light and crumbly strawberry shortbread is filled with fresh strawberries.
