Every member of staff friendly and efficient, the service was excellent in every way.
The dining room is beautifully furnished cosy and welcoming.
The quality of the food was very good indeed but although we are hearty eaters the portions were ridiculously large. Each main course plate would have easily fed 2 adults comfortably. A huge amount of perfectly cooked thickly carved beef for my husband and an equal quantity of turkey for me served with 4 large roast potatoes, a large scoop of mash and an enormous Yorkshire pudding each. Copious amounts of seperately served vegetables came too. Whilst we were eating we saw huge amounts of food left on plates being collected and obviously headed for the bin. I'm very conscious of wasted food and this was a sad example.
Just thought it was worth pointing out as otherwise the whole experience was superb.

Went to East Lodge for afternoon tea as a treat with my sister and a friend who was celebrating her 79th birthday. What a very special time we had. From the delicate finger sandwiches, to the fabulously light cream scones and dreamy cakes. The staff were superb,and the setting perfect.
A day to remember.

Atmosphere and service were excellent. Food quality did not match the stratospheric price. Like virtually all English restaurants we visited, there were no fresh salad offerings.

We were a party of 8 and found the traditional Sunday lunch ideal as two of our party were not English and were keen to try all things English. We all enjoyed our meals and found the service very good. However, we felt that it was slightly overpriced for relatively simple food.
Would recommend, though.

Words cannot express the excellent food and service that we were given by the staff when we recently visited this Hotel. I would definetely recommend this Hotel to anyone looking for first class food. Thanks for making us so welcome.
