“Disappointing”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

Called in for lunch.

Very expensive for quality thats at the lower end of the market.

Cold chips! Had to ask for condiments.

No children's menu! £9 for a very basic tomato and mozzarello salad.

“Beautiful restaurant beautiful food”
Reviewed 15 February 2013 via mobile

This is our fourth visit here and we always enjoy eating in this atmospheric decadent restaurant . The portions are not large but it's a case of quality not quantity. It costs around £25/30 for a three course meal
The bottles of wine are steep at around £20-25 each but works out cheaper to get a bottle than seperate glasses
The service is always excellent however we did have to ask the staff to delay the third course as it did feel rushed
The breakfast is buffet style and plentiful and piping hot although we often have breakfast in bed which us delivered hot and the choice is huge
We will return again soon

“Lovely staff and Victorian room, food mediocre”
Reviewed 31 December 2012

Restaurant cold the night we went (hard to keep such a large room warm). My risotto fine but beef on tough side, and kids' chicken tikka massala inedible. Sticky toffee pudding needed more than squirt of fake cream. Waitress lovely though.
