The food was very pleasant and the staff are more than attentive but something was missing from the experience to give this 5 stars. The menu choices in the bar were more inspiring and in my opinion the carbonara in the bar meals was nice than the mains in the restaurant but there is a wide range of choice and the prices are reasonable for a hotel. You wouldn't be disappointed if you ate here and as we'd been snowed in it was ideal.

We ate in the restaurant on 30 Dec 11. We had a super three course meal and the food was excellent. Wine a bit pricy @ £22 per bottle but the ambiance was good.

After a long journey my family and I were ravenous. With a minimum of fuss two hotel guests and one other were booked into the restaurant and tucking into warm breads rolls. I ate Plaice stuffed with Salmon Mousse and my Mum and daughter had the Beef and the Sea Bass. Eyebrows were slightly raised when we declined starters but even our appetites would have been challenged by these. Vegetables were served in copious quantity and were fresh and tasty. Afterwards Mum enjoyed fruit platter with couli my daughter and I shared a plate of local cheeses which could have been a meal in itself. The wine list was tantalising varied and inexpensive ( I had more driving to do so couldn't partake!)

We recently ate at The Rycote Restaurant in the Belfry Hotel and were very pleased with the experience. We were dining for a special occasion so were looking for something pretty special and the restaurant delivered this. In fact two of our party have said that they would return in the future.
The staff who greeted us were professional, polite and helpful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. If you wander around looking lost (the toilets are not very well sign-posted), someone WILL ask if you need any help!
The service was very good - we were not left waiting too long before our order was taken and all courses were delivered to us in a timely fashion. The food itself was reasonably priced for what you get and well presented.
The toilets were spotless, in fact the whole hotel looked very clean. The atmosphere was quite lively while we were there as the hotel was busy, but the noise level was acceptable and we had a very comfortable evening.
We would return again for a meal and would recommend it to friends and family who would like a nice night out and want to push the boat out once in a while.
For a three course meal for two with drinks, allow approximately £30-35 per person.
