Booked months in advance for a romantic Valentine's weekend break and initial experiences mostly positive. Welcoming receptionist, pleasant, clean room with a rural view, although a bit cool and dimly-lit, and a delightful pool with luxuriously hot jacuzzi!
We'd pre-booked our Valentine's Day meal for 7pm, when there were few fellow diners in the Hunter's restaurant. However, after being served with our drinks and being proffered cold rolls, it took 45 minutes and three requests before our uncomlicated starters of soup and prawn salad arrived. We'd chosen the specials of lamb and pork shoulder, yet we were served with what can best be described as a small portion of blended baby food with a few vegetables. OK if you're a baby but not if you're a hungry adult, and we were paying £16 for the privelege. The waiter seemed unwilling to look after us, too. Fortunately there's a Toby Carvery 200m up the road so that's where we ate on the Saturday night!
The buffet breakfast was fine if not special so, while the Chase is a good place to stay B&B, I recommend avoiding the hotel as a place to dine in the evening. To maintain the hotel's racing theme, The Hunter fell at the first hurdle...
