Very Disappointing.The afternoon tea had a lot to be desired. The staff were not attentive although we had booked it in advance and were the only people at that time in the restaurant.

We ate here whilst staying at the hotel. Both dinner and Breakfast were excellent. For dinner there are 2 fixed price menus but you are allowed to mix courses from the cheaper and more expensive menus for just a £5 premium per course from the more expensive menu

1881 is an excellent restaurant for guests of Wrea Head Hall but also takes bookings for those who want to eat out in the evening. The food is very, very good and plentiful, created by a skilled chef and his team. Excellent menu and wine list to suit all tastes.

The dining room was fully booked on both nights that I was at the hotel so booking is essential. The portions are generous and my selection from the least expensive menu (Two courses £24.50) was perfectly cooked and presented. I followed this with the cheese platter (£5.95) which was served with grapes, chutney, and celery. The bar can become full... More
