We had a family Sunday lunch here for 11 people. We were not hurried and were offered a private room with access to the gardens. We sat in the gardens for pre lunch drinks and ordered our food. Fabulous food. Fabulous service. Wonderful day.

The person at the reception desk was cold and unwelcoming. She seemed to be too busy to talk to us let alone welcoming us to the supposedly Michelin star restaurant. We went for Angela Hartnett's name but was very 'underwhelmed'. The food was bad. I had a hake with pickle and it tasted awful. My partner wasn't impressed with his... More

The good bits: Stylish setting, great cocktails, lovely arancini. The bad bits: The service really was very poor 20 seconds after sitting down they wanted to take our wine order before we had reviewed the menu. After a quick browse we ordered two bottles which then took 40 minutes to arrive at the table. We politely reminded a waiter but... More

There is no doubt this is a stylish venue - a lunch that had been booked for sometime for a joint celebration with a friend on a cold January day. The welcome on arrival was immediate and genuine as we were swept into the bar area for an aperitif. We were shortly shown to our table but not sure why... More

Our first time, but the other members of the party had been on previous occasions. Some very good points but a few less so hence the rating. I am a blue badge holder and we were surprised that the hotel dies not have a few disabled parking places near the enterance, although they do offer to park for you, but... More

Maybe it's just us. Our second attempt at eating here. It started well with smoked salmon and a pear salad, both of which were very nice. Then we were both disappointed with our main meals. The puddings again were alright, well my zabaglione was overpowered with the amount of alcohol in it, so much so I left most of it.... More

I could have happily chosen any of the food on the menu. Interesting dishes that you don't see very often on menus. Needless to say it was all very well cooked and beautifully presented.

We had the 3 course for £25 lunch menu. Astounding value, for amazing food. I started with a breaded poached egg and hollandaise, whilst my wife had venison carpaccio. She had red mullet for her main, whilst I opted for pork belly. Desert was excellent - we shared a pear poached in mulled wine. Incredible value at £70 for both... More

We had the set lunch for a party of four. The food was without doubt superb and the atmosphere and ambience in the restaurant matched. Surprised at how excellent value the set menu lunch is as the price is easily comparable to a regular gastro pub. Only one tiny criticism was that our table was right next to the kitchen... More

Love the dining room, it has a lovely atmosphere. ...set lunch good value for just under £20 for 2 courses. Wine £26 for half a litre of acceptable red wine. Venison hot pot very nice if a little too salty. All in all a very pleasant place for lunch.

Thank Audrey P
