“Superb food though service perhaps lacks a little polish”
Reviewed 23 October 2009

My wife and I had lunch at Homewood Park in late October and found the food to be 'top notch', though it was - perhaps - a slightly oddly-matched overall experience. The hotel is a delightfully sleepy, small, country-house establishment in the countryside south west of Bath, with log fires and comfortable squashy sofas. It is very easy to get to being just off the A36, yet it nestles quietly in its extensive own grounds with lovely views.
The food in the small dining room was absolutely superb: an imaginative menu with fairly small portions, but with intense rich flavours such that one would not want too much. We lunched on two courses for about £14 - a fair price for the quality of the food. The wine was reasonably priced and the house-wines well-chosen. It was a pity we were initially the only people lunching, which rather took the edge off the atmosphere. The standard of cuisine and efforts of the chef merited a larger custom. Curiously, the service, while perfectly polite and workmanlike, lacked that final professional polish that one would expect from the quality of the food and restaurant: not what one normally gets from a Von Essen hotel. As the only customers, it was also odd not to have one's order taken until 15 minutes after arrival at the booked time, to wait a further 15 minutes to be seated, and then to wait a further 10 minutes before the first course arrived. But I may be quibbling: the food was well worth waiting for and we would certainly go again - probably for dinner when the 'A Team' is serving.
