Tylney Hall was always my place of choice to eat and stay when I lived in the UK. I was in London on a family visit and decided to book a table for Sunday lunch at Tylney for four persons ,three ladies and myself.
Two of the ladies had not visited Tylney before and were very pleased with the invitation due to the high praise I had always given to what had been my favourite restaurant.
We had a very tough journey down due to the heavy traffic and pulled into the lovely drive way up to the hall.
I was pleased to see one or two staff members were still at the hall even after all of the years since my last visit. All was good and we ordered a good bottle of champagne and had a glass as we made our lunch choices in the lovely main reception room.
In we went for lunch and the Oak Room looked as lovely as before and with the piano playing ,the setting all looked good.
The table wear, including the cruets were dirty and very dull ,heaven knows when they had a proper clean. Lunch was good and then a disaster hit a fellow guest who was very ill and had collapsed on the floor---not pleasant. I missed the desert trolley which was always a high light of any meal. We asked for coffee to be served in another room and off we went to the blue /grey room were we were informed quite rudely by a member of staff that this room was set for those having afternoon tea. We sat in the main reception room with the door open and the wind blowing through quite strongly --not a pleasant experience--.
We went out side to look at the lovely grounds and passed a puddle of human vomit which one of my guests had to find and point out to a member of staff,
Bill paid ,we left the Hall and the conversation back to London was not one of praise for the place ,which was a real shame.
I have emailed the General Manager who will no doubt reply to this post, he did apologise but his reply left my concerns unanswered in my opinion, I informed him of this by return and his silence shall we say has been deafening.!!!
Standards have dropped which is a real shame .
