From the minute we arrived we were of course impressed by the grandeur of the building, who wouldn't be. The interior was just as grand. Our visit was on the 14th December so it was beautifully decorated for Xmas and the log fires were lit. A friendly welcome at the door and then drinks in the lounge were followed by dinner in the beautiful panelled dining room. Our meal was of the highest quality served by very efficient staff. Our only criticism would be that we felt the vegetables should have been included with the meal instead of being an extra. After dinner we retired to the lounge and were lucky to have the seats around the fire. Spent a lovely time chatting over drinks. We had expected this venue to be grand but were surprised to find it was also so cosy and comfortable. Found it hard to leave - could have happily put our feet up and spent longer. Will definitely return in the future for a lunch so that we can appreciate the setting.

Dear stefan d

Thank you for the review you posted on Tripadvisor following your vist to the hotel for dinner in December.

I do appreciate the very positive feedback in relation to the the surroundings, the ambience, the food and the staff especially. I can understand it being difficult to leave, especially with those comfy sofas and the cosy fires!

Regarding the side orders - we have always had them there as an option for those who wanted extra - especially larger parties. Our Chef does try ton create dishes that will incorporate appropriate vegetables and potatoes. We have since removed side orders from the menu but we can always offer something extra vegetable or potaotes if required..

I look forward to welcoming you back at some point in the future.

Kind Regards

Everything about Swinfen Hall is special. Walking into the house is just that - it's not a hotel - one is invited to stay in a house. Champagne in front of the fire, tasting menu with wine. All perfect. (Of course, one can criticise elements, but only as if on masterchef).

Dear ghvisitors

Thank you for the review you posted following your recent visit to the Four Seasons restaurant at Swinfen Hall Hotel.

Swinfen Hall was in fact a private house back in the day - a very grand one! I hope you had an opportunity to read the history. It still have that homely feel and I am so glad you got to experience and enjoy it.

I hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you back.

Kind Regards

The staff were wonder file and welcoming. We had asked for flowers and and they were lovely. The setting was good and the service and food excellent. We had a great celebration and whilst the hotel would have arranged a cake we took our own which was beautifully presented. Menu was varied and all of our party aged from 19 to 90 were delighted.
The grounds and hotel itself are well presented and the attention to detail and the care taken to look after elderly guests was really helpful.

Would definitely recommend for any celebration.

Dear Val C

Thank you for the review you posted following your recent visit to The Fours Seasons Restaurant at Swinfen Hall Hotel at the end of October.

I would say that a very high percentage of people who come to Swinfen are celebrating something - whether it be a birthday or an anniversary - so we do try to make those occasions memorable. I am so glad this one was.

I look forward to welcoming you back for the next celebration!

Kind Regards
