I'm glad you were finally able to have a meal with us, and I am sorry to hear about your fathers death which prevented you attending during December.

With regards the menu choice we have our main menu with 6 mains available all the time and our weekly specials board had I believe 6 or 7 items to choose from, so I hope you all found something you enjoyed.

One thing to consider is that all of our food is freshly prepared during the week as we do not rely on microwaveable meals that you will find on more extensive menus maybe.

Thank you once again for your kind comment

We went to the Hilton House Hotel for Sunday Lunch was what a good decision that was. A lovely Hotel in a pretty village.

We started off the meal with a lovely starter, I had baked brie and my partner had the prawn cocktail. Both were good portion sizes and presented lovely and the taste lived up to its look. The average prece was just under £5, good value for the portion size.

Next came the main course. This was a cavery and there was a choice of 3 meats, salmon or a steak and ale pie and a variety of vegetables. All cooked to prefection no watery cabbage here!. I had the beef and turkey and my partnet the beef and pork. The meat was cooked to perfection and the taste was lovely. Vegetables were cooked just right and plenty of choice.
You could have two meats for £10 very good value.

We declined a dessert as we both were full but by the looks of the puddings that other diners were having they too were good portions and looked delicious.

It is definitely worth a visit.

Zoe, Colin and their team hosted the perfect wedding venue for my son. The event planning and the event itself was understated, relaxed and went without a hitch. The staff were attentive in the background without having an overbearing prescence. The room was stunning, food wonderful including a fabulous buffet. All the staff were friendly and helpful. We couldn't have wished for a more perfect day - thank you Zoe, Colin and crew for your hard work. Just a thought to consider - the more negative feedback is all recent and seems to have run concurrently - a conspiracy methinks!!

Thank you Lynn for your review. We pride ourselves in providing "the day you want the way you wanted it" and if Katy and Lee remember their day for being everything they wanted then we are happy that we could play our little part in it.

As to the most recent reviews we are victims of both sides of Trip Advisor, your wonderful review is heartfelt and tells a picture of what we are trying to achieve. Others can take a 2 minute conversation with a DJ,( who was doing what the party organiser had agreed to) and imply that we are the worst venue ever.

I can only hope that all reviews are read and that the good outweigh the bad.

We have just had a family wedding at the Hilton House Hotel. Only one word to describe the service we received - fabulous! I am not prone to offering praise lightly but the service we received from Zoe, Colin and their team was exemplary and that is a view echoed by family members who stayed at the hotel. The entire event including the civil ceremony, wedding meal and evening buffet was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble and the day went without a hitch. Food is superb and is comparable with many much pricier hotels/restaurants. Well done!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main hotel if the weather is bad as yopu have to cross the car park otherwise...

We attended this dinner with friends. I have a dairy-free diet and only remembered to contact the hotel around tea-time to inform them. Although everyone else with special diet requirements had ordered their food in advance, they were extremely accommodating and provided me with an alternative starter and dessert despite the short notice. The service was friendly and efficient, the ambiance was good all in all it was a very enjoyable evening.

I went to a party at the Hilton house and I wasn't impressed by the DJ as he was rude however the venue was nice and there was enough food for us all. The meal was nice although the turkey was dry and the women serving the food was coughing on it all.
