Given Russell's markets itself as 'a restaurant with rooms' my husband and I were expecting fantastic things of the food (having checked their website it all looked fabulous). However the food was VERY disappointing - average at best. Given how plush the rest of the establishment is, I was really suprised - we even decided against dessert based on starters and mains, which were very over-priced given the quality (£10 average for starters, and my very small main of uninspiring pasta around £14 if memory serves). On the second night of our stay we ventured to somewhere else nearby (the Swan) where the food was delicious, and much cheaper.
That said, Russell's is a beautiful place to stay - the room (we stayed in number 7 - a large suite) was stunning. The main room was beautifully furnished, comfortable and given it faced onto the main street, for the most part quite peaceful. The bathroom was bigger than any I've seen before and very impressive. Based on the quality of the rooms and the friendliness of the service, I have no issues with Russells' at all, and would happily stay there again - but I wouldn't be in a rush to eat there again.
A 'restaurant with rooms' - No. A stunning hotel with an ok restaurant - Yes.
