“disappointing afternoon treat”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

My husband and myself have just been for afternoon tea and all I can say is how dissappointed we are with the quality of the food, 8 small finger sandwiches very sparingly filled with tasteless cheap fillings, no attempt made to make it look appealing, the cake stand was crammed with cake but unfortunately quantity is no substitute for good homemade scones and cakes, the scones had been microwaved far too long so they were hard in the middle by the time we ate them as was the pancake, there were 2 slices of a very dry iced cake ,one of which had the majority of its icing missing!, there was a strawberry tart, another slice of cake, and a piece of an iced fresh cream slice which was probably the only thing that tasted nice,on checking the smallprint again on the voucher it states the sandwich fillings and that they are served on a variety of flavoured breads not the slighty dry bland bread we had, the cakes described are not what was served either no french macaron, no lemon pancake, no raspberry slice ?Its a real shame because we cant fault the staff or the place itself but unfortunately we wont be returning.

In late May this year we came across this Hotel quite by accident when looking for a place to stay for the night. What a wonderful surprise. The Indian owners were very helpful. We had two lovely rooms with great views of the gardens. For dinner we chose an Indian meal - wonderful spicy food - and a special Indian dessert. Really impressed.

Visited on a Sunday for afternoon tea to celebrate a family birthday, using itison vouchers. Firstly they didn't have our table ready when we arrived so we had to stand in the bar. When they brought the afternoon tea out, the sandwiches were bland, unappetising fillings on supermarket sliced white and brown bread, not the flavoured breads as advertised - disappointing to say the least! The cakes were plentiful but the scones and pancakes were stale and dry; they may have been warmed for serving then gone cold as they arrived with the sandwiches. We ordered children's meals additionally, when my son's steak pie arrived it was a dish of stewed steak - there was no pastry! They eventually put a piece of puff pastry on top for him but he'd gone if the idea with the delay. Such a disappointment, will definitely not be returning any time soon. Used to have a home cooked charm about the food with previous owners, now seems a conveyor belt sideline to the Indian restaurant.

Nice to see this hotel re-opened and now the choice of Indian Restaurant "Spice" on the premises too. It was very, very busy - the main restaurant full and people waiting in the foyer.Our table in Spice was booked for 8 pm (6 of us) but unfortunately there had been a slip up and our table was not free - so as it was so busy in both the main restaurant and bar for us to wait, we sat outside. We had drinks while we waited but time went on and it was also getting cold but we managed to survive until our table was free. It was just short of an hour late - however the chap who took our order couldn't have been more apologetic and said sorry several times which in my book, makes all the difference. Also gave us our poppadoms and a Nan bread on the house - which again was a nice gesture and ensures we would consider this restaurant in the future. Food was excellent - we all had various curries and apart from a later evening than expected - we enjoyed our meals and the service was friendly.

The food was great and very good value. An establish Indian restaurant business ( formerly different premises ) in an off the beaten track location, but a good location with ample car parking. Friendly staff if a little chaotic but owners come and ak if everything is ok. Food is very tasty and authentic.

Room Tip: We only went to the restaurant, I have never stayed in the hotel, as far as I know it may be a littl...

If you're looking for nice place for a meal in the Ferry, then give the Taychreggan a visit. They have the choice of the 'Spice' Indian menu or a European menu, and both have a wide selection to choose from. We went for lunch, I had a European choice and my wife had an Indian dish, both were really good. The restaurant has been recently refurbished and is comfortable, and not crowded, and I'm looking forward to trying the beer garden which looks great. The staff were really friendly and very helpful, we'll definitely be back.
