“Disappointing”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

After driving past several times my husband and I thought we would book for dinner. On arrival the outside was impressive to look at. The inside was as expected of an English country house hotel. The staff were friendly and keen to please but their seeming lack of confidence and possible experience meant that service was not great and attention to detail was missed (for example our food arrived whilst I had just gone to the ladies and the bar staff didn't understand the word mojito!) The food was pleasant and overall experience average but slightly disappointing.

“Fantastic - service better than Lucknam Park!”
Reviewed 5 June 2013 via mobile

We have visited here on various occasions for coffee, lunches and afternoon tea, it has always been of high standard and great service. Afternoon tea is great and such a good price! We went to Lucknam Park the other week and there service was terrible in comparison and twice the price, I guess that the extra price is for it having the michellin restaurant which we didn't dine in. Anyway back to Beechfieldhouse were now changing our minds for our wedding venue and coming here. Why pay more when service is better and our lunches etc have always been a high standard. We will be back again v soon and booking our wedding !

“Mums 80th Birthday Party Sunday 5th May 2013”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

Hi Maria

Just wanted to say a very big thank you to you and your staff for the wonderful service and attention we received on Sunday at my mum's birthday lunch party.

Every member of staff I spoke to what ever the issue, were polite and eager to please.
The food was absolutely fantastic everyone gave great comments, and really enjoyed everything.

Of course we were very lucky with the weather, that added to the day to be able to use the beautiful garden, we all really enjoyed being outside after our lunch.

Thank you and all the staff for making my mum's birthday a wonderful day to remember.


Kind regards
Linda & Derek

“Excellent Afternoon Tea”
Reviewed 11 March 2013

I took my Mum and Mother in law on Friday for a mothers day treat of afternoon tea and can not fault anything.
On arrival we were made to feel very welcome and the table was laid with crisp white table cloths and napkins and was in the window over looking the front of the hotel, creating a very relaxed feel. Which is just what i had planned to just relax with the mothers and escape every day hussle and bustle.
The afternoon tea was perfectly presented, with a nice selection of sandwiches, scones with jam and cream and then a beautiful selection of cakes all of which (including the jam) looked and tasted homemade.
As we sat chatting and munching our way through the beatiful tea, the staff were very friendly attentive and made sure we had everything we wanted offering more tea and drinks throughout the afternoon.
We will certainly be visiting again and would deffinatly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxed afternoon catching up with friends and family.

Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. Afternoon tea should always be a real joy and it was great to hear that was the experience of the three of you. You are quite correct - it is all homemade including the strawberry jam! Thanks again.

“Very friendly service”
Reviewed 10 March 2013

Just had joint Mother's Day and birthday lunch here for a party of 10. Very helpful staff and nothing was too much - they put some flowers we had brought into water, cut up and presented the birthday cake we brought and made no extra charge for this. Meal was nice but we all felt that we were genuinely welcomed.

Thank you for your very prompt and positive feedback after your recent visit for Mother's Day. It was great to know that you were so well looked after particulary on such a busy day for us. Hope to see you back soon for Sunday lunch or a restaurant lunch/dinner.
