A group of us had been really looking forward to having lunch at Fawsley, we were so let down. On arrival we were offered a drink, they never came. Then when everyone had arrived we were offered the menus, still no drinks. Some drinks then arrived after ordering again, for the men only. It didn't bode well, the whole atmosphere... More

Fantastic three course meal. Was taken here by my wife for my birthday, lovely meal and can definitely recommend the beef. The chocolate brownie was out of this world!

My husband and i came here last year for our wedding anniversary, we said we wouldn't return. The food was good but let down by bad service. My father booked the Cedar restaurant for mine and my mums joint birthday. On arrival we gave our party name and were told we were not on the list. My father had called... More

My partner and I went to this restaurant whilst staying at the hotel. It was a perfect venue for a romantic dinner with nicely spaced tables, not overly attentive staff, excellent food and a good choice of wines. Lovely evening.

We ate here on our first night stay at Fawsley Hall. The staff were very attentive and there was plenty of choice on the menu. I am a vegetarian and found plenty of choice. I would describe this as fine dining and the ambiance was wonderful, beautiful music, beautiful setting, wonderful staff and great lighting. Well worth a visit for... More

A super restaurant with attentive staff, beautifully presented food, a little on the pricey side, especially the drinks, but on the whole worth a visit.

The buffet is great if you're in a hurry, but have a look at the table menu and there are some wonderful dishes there too. Kippers and eggs benedict, smoked salmon & scrambled eggs, haddock and poached eggs....

The property is a superb gem in Northamptonshire. The restaurant and chef wins awards and it is an expensive place to eat. We went with friends who were celebrating a major wedding anniversary. Service was attentive and ambience great. The Great Hall is wonderful and lovely to see. The food was OK but for the price I did not rate... More

My two old school friends and I enjoyed a wonderful meal. We chose from the table d'hôte menu which was extremely good value at £39 for three courses. Every course was delicious.
