We went for the Sunday lunch, which is excellent value even at £19.95 per head. The starters are soup and a buffet of numerous salads, cold meats, salmon, smoked salmon, mackerel, crayfish and prawns, plus egg mayonnaise, all to help yourself to. We all had two plates, they were so tasty. Then there's a choice of two roasts, plus a fish dish and a vegetarian option, with a selection of potatoes and vegetables, which we could help ourselves to. There was a plate of fruit on the buffet table, but desserts, hot, cold or cheese & biscuits were served to the table, as were the coffee and tea afterwards. The only spoiler was when I asked for hot water instead of the tea/coffee options, the waitress took my cup and brought it back, holding it by the rim. Prior to that, the service had been excellent, so maybe this is just a transatlantic habit that nobody has mentioned doesn't go down well over here.

We visited here on Sunday 20th August for brunch to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary, we actually got married here also! We have visited many times over the past 10 years to celebrate many special occasions and we have never had a bad experience. The brunch is such excellent value with a great selection of starters, main course and desserts. The food always tastes amazing and is cooked to perfection. The staff are always helpful. I cannot recommend this place highly enough!

We held our wedding & reception here in July 2017. The Pavilion's General Manager, Peter, looked after our day from initial planning and was a total superstar throughout, going above and beyond to make sure we had a great day and a great experience.

The venue is self-contained, which creates a beautiful relaxed feeling for guests. The Bridal party had use of the Garden Room all day, creating a calm environment for getting ready and for relaxing away from the hustle and bustle later! Having access to a private outdoor space was also a bonus.

Looking out over the golf course, the Chatsworth Suite makes a stunning ceremony room, which was quickly transformed into a fabulous reception suite afterwards.

Reception drinks were lovely refreshing cocktails - a welcome change to the usual Pimms! And we really enjoyed the day we spent trying all the different suggestions. Kids' cocktails were also a massive hit with the younger guests.

We chose an afternoon tea reception, and weren't disappointed. The food was delicious, varied and there was plenty of it - especially the gorgeous scones. The house Prosecco was a really good wine to accompany the meal.

The food at the evening reception was fabulous to; we were guided on the choice of dishes and the chef's suggestions were great.

We used some suppliers recommended by the Pavilion (florist, pianist, disco), and were very pleased with their services. Their relationship with the venue meant we had nothing to worry about as they managed them on the day.

We really can't recommend the Pavilion highly enough. Their suggestions were helpful and really made our day extra special. They are friendly, flexible and professional, and made our day (and the run up to it) super-enjoyable.

I cannot praise this venue highly enough. Everything was excellent starting from the planning stage with the help & expertise from Victoria & Dawn. The lovely room was partitioned within the dining room with easy access to the starters & carvery. There were 27 guests & everybody commented on the delicious food. The atmosphere & service was first class. Thank you for making Mum's 90th birthday such a memorable day!
