Had a meal at the Etrop Grange restaurant,it was the a la carte menu which was beautiful food in pleasant surroundings and the staff were excellent,the food looked amazing on the plate and the choice was varied but as with a la carte not a lot of it unless you had the steak,the starters and sweets again were small but very nice with a varied choice, I had leek terrine,pork with parma ham and baked pineapple,quite expensive and they didnt offer coffee and moved us out of the dining area as they were setting for breakfast !!! All in all a pleasant experience,they did have bar snacks available but didnt see what they were like,if you like lovely food but not a lot of it give it a go,or youll need to make a stop at the chippy on the way home

We dined at the Wineglass Restaurant with a Travelzoo half price taster voucher. First impressions in the bar were fine, but the restaurant itself was tired. The tables look fresh from a local charity shop and the waiter's jacket was at least 4 sizes too small leaving him looking like some sort of Billy Bunter caricature. The first 3 wines we attempted to select from the wine list were unavailable. The food novelle, unusual, but tasty. The salmon was allegedly poached, but almost raw. The desserts were excellent.

I had diarrhoea within 2 hours of leaving but was the only one of the four of us.

Took some guests there (dined in the conservatory part of the restaurant). Paid £750 for 12 of us, but the food and drink was top notch, if not a little stingy on the portions.

I too was a witness to a disciplinary process by the manager and the chef, in the restaurant, during business hours, bizarre and uncomfortable, you must question the sense of those involved.

The food is excellent, but overpriced and meagre in size. The drinks overpriced but of a size they would find hard to scrimp on.

We went to The Etrop Grange and partook of their 5-course sampler menu.

The menu is deifinitely of the 'moderne cuisine' idiom and compares well against visits we've made to both Gordon Ramsey and Jamie Oliver establishments but, being outside the Greater London region, is decidedly better priced.

All the dishes were served well by very attentive staff, who gave details as to the thoughts behind each dish. They were all visually well presented and the textures and flavours of every dish were exquisite.

The 'Poached salmon with oyster, grape and black olive' was a total surprise being fully cooked but managing to remain a solid, non-flaky piece of fish with the decided appearance of being uncooked. Its flavours were distinct and well complemented by the accompanying sauce.

The 'Pickled root vegetables with a duck egg, goat’s milk and watercress' was a subtle combination of starkly contrasting flavours and textures.

The 'Corn-fed chicken breast with Jerusalem artichokes, brassica and spaetzle' was a great variation on the normal chicken breast presentation and was very artistically displayed on plating. Its overall impact, being a smoked chicken dish, was rather germanic in styling and contrasted well with the preceding dishes.

The 'Lemon curd meringue with wild rice and almond' contained just the right degree of sweetness from the meringue to complement the sharpness of the lemon and was extremely refreshing following the chicken course.

The final course '70% bitter chocolate soup with gingerbread, orange and fennel' remained a mystery until presented. It was a very rich, strong flavoured dessert, which rounded off the entire dining experience excellently.

It must be said that the menu choice is NOT for the picky or faint-hearted, NOR for anyone expecting huge proportions. It is however, a dining experience that will remain as an extremely pleasurable memory for many years to come.

I, for one, am looking forwards with baited breath to my next visit to The Etrop Grange.
