We are huge fans of this eatery, and have been coming here fairly regularly since 2012, on this last visit we were told that the restaurant manager (Stuart) had left for pastures new - what a disappointment, for Stuart WAS the face ands personality of No.19, Head Chef Jamie is still here, so you can be assured both the quality of ingredients & the quality of cooking has not changed (Thank Goodness!) We called in for lunch (£10 for 2 Courses) My good lady had the Home Made Tomato Soup followed by Beer Battered Fish & Chips, whilst I started with the Pate, before tasting the Battered Haddock, both coursed were very tasty, and excellent value for money, amazingly, we were the only couple in the restaurant! Some mysteries will never be solved (when WILL England win the World Cup again? How does the man who drives the Snow Plough get to Work?) And being the couple in for Lunch midweek is another........

A group of ten of us met for lunch to celebrate a birthday and had a lovely time. We were greeted by a very friendly waitress and left to read the menu and chat. She was attentive (as well as very patient!) and we never felt as if we were being rushed. Between us, we chose almost everything that was on the special "2 courses for £10" menu. The food was all very tasty and beautifully presented and very good value for money. Overall, it was a relaxing, enjoyable experience, one we would definitely repeat.

We visited no. 19 restaurant on Friday, we were trying the menu prior to our sons wedding in April, the restaurant is beautifully presented with lovely candles and two roaring log fires, the food and service were excellent, we wish it was more local to us as we would be very frequent visitors, can't wait for the wedding as we are confident of a great day, many thanks to ingon!

I won a free 4 course meal for 4 adults during Christmas, I was very excited about this so we travelled to Stratford and stayed in a nearby hotel. It was a freebie so I won't complain too much but I'm glad it wasn't something we had to pay for. I'm told that the real price would have been £35 per person which it wouldn't have been worth. The first barman to serve me just looked at me like I was too much trouble for him to serve, he finally acknowledged me and said "Yes!?" there was nothing welcoming from him, he was very rude in this respect. Now for the food - The starter (confit as well as the soup) were both surprisingly bland, it lacked flavour and could have done with some seasoning. The majority of the main, however, was delicious minus the frozen veg.. which was undercooked and hard. I don't understand why people think it's acceptable to use frozen veg in good restaurants, I'd expect it in a 2-for-1 chain but not a posh place. The dessert was also disappointing (brownie as well as crème brulee). The male manager walking around behind the waiters/waitresses seemed very nice and engaged in conversation with us which was lovely as were all the other waiters and waitresses, it was just the one barman I had an issue with. I wouldn't come back here unfortunately as my initial visit wasn't up to standards, sorry. I give this 3.5 out of 5 as a rating.

Visited for lunch with my old friend Tom, didn't know anything about the restaurant beforehand and not heard of before I had no expectations. The restaurant is attached to a golf club and hotel. I expected it to be quiet on a Wednesday lunchtime in September but we were actually the only diners in the restaurant. The restaurant was nicely decorated if a bit sparse, not many soft furnishings and it was also cold in temperature, Tom didn't remove his scarf throughout our meal.

The waiter was very friendly and smiley, I had the burger and chips which was very tasty although all a little dry and could've benefited from mayonnaise, ketchup some sort of moisture from relish, Tom had the prawn linguine which he said was very good, we both had very tasty and beautiful looking deserts.

We sat in the bay window overlooking lovely countryside views and the entrance from the car park to the golf club, it felt a little goldsfish bowl like, occasionally as male players past the bay window some smiled and waved and one even gave me the thumbs up and I'm really not quite sure what it was all about and don't think I really want to.

To sum up:
Food was ok, restaurant was cold and a bit deserted, would I return? Only if playing golf, assuming women are allowed access to all areas of the club.

Hello
Thanks for your review on your lunch last Wednesday at No19 Restaurant.
Sorry to hear that you were cold in the restaurant, since then our heating has gone back on for the winter, what a difference from a week ago.
We have passed on the our chefs your comment on the Burger.
Golfers are very friendly at Ingon and always like to give a cheery wave to each other so I am sure they were trying to be friendly by acknowledging you in the restaurant.
Ingon is a very modern Golf Club and treat both men and women the same so Lady Golfers are welcome at any time in all areas of the club.
Hope to see you back for a game of golf.
Regards
Stuart
