“Great”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Excellent food & service, can't rate it highly enough. The menu has a good choice but not too much choice which sometimes spoils the quality of food. Wish we lived nearer to visit more often.

“Fine dining in the Malvern Hills”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Seasons Restaurant in the Colwall Park Hotel is set in an attractive village location by the Malvern Hills. The restaurant has views of the western slopes of the nearby hills. My companion and I had fish main courses followed by dessert and we both agreed that the food was delicious and nicely presented, the service was helpful and the setting very pleasant. The whole experience was enjoyable.

“A place with potential, ruined by a terrible service. Shame!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

All right, the food was delicious and the place looked lovely, such an elegant hall and lovely music at the right volume. But good grief, it cannot take two full hours to serve three course (the last just a cheese board), two hours during which nobody had the decency to make sure that we did not need any more drinks (than a pint of ale and, for me the driver, just 330ml of water!) People arrived far later than us were served before we were and this did not help our mood at all, after the first hour we were more annoyed than hungry... and we hadn't eaten much yet! I understand that they were heavily short staffed, just three (plus one cook, I guess) dealing with the restaurant and the bar at the same time, but there must be a limit for the waiting time and the staff's carelessness: if you cannot do better than this as you are, you should employ more people or accept less bookings (and it's not as if we were dozens in the restaurant!) Not likely to go there again.

Thank you for your candid review and we are so sorry you received such slow service that night. We did in fact have our full brigade of 5 chefs on duty, hence the delicious food, but were let down at the last minute by 2 of our waiting staff failing to arrive.
Having said that we are not a fast food restaurant and because everything is prepared to order, including the cheese board selection, it's normal to spend 1-2 hours relaxing over a three course meal with aperitifs etc.

“"Yet again Superb"”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

we dined here on Saturday evening with our son, normally we eat in the Lantern Bar but on this occasion we decided on the Restaurant.The waitress showed us to our table & served us our drinks, we were then given a bowl of olives & some cheese biscuits to nibble on while we decided what to order. I chose the fresh Pea soup for starters & my son & wife chose the Goats’ Cheese Hash Brown, red onion marmalade, red pepper coulis. The pea soup was really tasty served in a really nice bowl with fresh homemade bread rolls. The goats cheese was to really good a very nice starter, the red onion marmalade really did accompany the goats cheese, again a really good starter..
For mains i had the Herb Roasted Loin of Grass Fed Malvern Hills Lamb with thyme potatoes, mediterranean vegetables, glazed carrots & rosemary juices. This came out with the lamb sliced on top of the vegetables, cooked exactly how it should be "Pink" it was so tender & full of flavour The whole meal was really good presentation 10/10.
My wife chose the Crisp Fillet of Gilt Head Bream with char grilled new potatoes, chorizo, spinach & red pepper sauce i did not get to try this but she assured me it was lovely . My son had the Seared Goosnargh Duck Breast with walnut scented mashed potatoes & roast root vegetables again really nicely presented & it must have tasted as good as the plate was clean.
For sweet we had Caramelised Banana Tart Tatin with rum & raisin ice cream, this was really nice not good for the waist but what the hell... the other sweet was the Passion Fruit topped Baked Vanilla Cheesecake pineapple sorbet my son had this one which was again lovely the sorbet was his favourite part of the dish but it was all good as "yet again a clean plate".
The waitress & waiter who looked after us during the evening were superb nothing was to much trouble & the service was second to none.
We dine here regularly & always have good service & a good meal weather in the Lantern Bar or the Restaurant, & its nice to see they change the menu on a regular basis.
My personal choice would to have a "From The Grill" Menu serving Fillet / Ribeye / Sirloin Steaks Etc That would be Heaven.
All in all this is a pleasant Restaurant to come & dine the food & service will not dissapoint

Thank you for yet another very kind review and it's good to hear that we are still pleasing our regular customers with both the Lantern Bar and Seasons Restaurant menus.
I'm not so sure about having a grill menu because we like to serve food that is difficult for you to prepare and cook at home, but we always try to have at least one grilled meat to offer.
Our current menu offers an unusual cut of "Char Grilled Eye of Hereford Beef Rump", which we've developed with our local farmer over the last few months. It's as tender as fillet , providing it's cooked no more than medium rare, but with bags more beefy flavour.

“Lovely birthday lunch!”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

We enjoyed a very pleasant lunch in the Lantern Bar at the Colwall Park Hotel. The menu was all vey tempting with plenty of locally sourced produce to chose from. My salmon was cooked to perfection and the bread and butter pudding was divine (loved the open log fire too). We will certainly be returning soon! Thank you.
