“Good find tucked behind the town”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Elegant hotel and a surprising find behind shops in the market square. Very secluded location and good food.

“Completely delicious - a real treat”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

We had treated ourselves to a stay at Strattons, in part because of the food and were not disappointed. Service in the restaurant (as the hotel) was perfect, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We enjoyed three courses, which weren't huge, but we were seriously full at the end of a long leisurely meal. Everything was cooked really well, fresh and seasonal ingredients too, and a good wine list that helped you pick to fit your food choices well. Hope to be back...

“Average ...”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

My brother had heard very good reports regarding Strattons but all we can say is that it was very average. The food was OK but nothing wowed us and burnt pork crackling unforgiveable, service was OK ("Hi Guys" really doesn't do it for me) and two waiters asking us the same question seemed overkill. Instead of asking if we wanted a drink from the bar upon arrival would be better phrased as an aperitif etc. as if the bar is so special send us up there! Can't think of much to say as just came away disappointed, thinking it was expensive for nothing special. The building is very beautiful though. Need to up their game as the cafe is a far more interesting visit.

“Cosy restaurant, great staff, excellent food”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

The title says it all really. This is a cosy little restaurant in a high end hotel. The atmosphere was very conducive to conversation and banter with old mates and the staff were very attentive and chatty. The food was very good and very interesting, who'd have thought of putting beetroot in a chocolate brownie? It was lovely. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant.
