Food not cheap but it is of the 'savour every mouthful' variety. Taster menu was popular but we ate the Market menu as well as from the a la carte. All excellent.

My husband and I sampled the 7 course tasting menu when we stayed at this delightful hotel recently.
Before even getting into the restaurant I was delighted to discover the hotel stocks a great range of unusual gins including one from France which was delicious and which I now intend to hunt out to purchase. My husband enjoyed his welsh scrumpy so much he had another with his meal. Tasty canapés were served in the bar. The generosity of selection should have forewarned us that portions may not be typical tasting size but rather more generous!
In the restaurant we started with a delicious cauliflower amusee bouche. Not quite a foam, not quite a soup. Course after course followed with delicious scallops, liver parfait, salmon,welsh lamb and panacotta all making an appearance. My personal favourites were the scallops and lamb courses.
Service was by friendly staff who were knowledgable about each course and able to discuss the source of local ingredients.
This was a high quality meal in delightful surroundings with friendly but professional staff. Do try it you won't be disappointed.

We visited the Falcondale for a birthday meal just before Christmas, it was our first dining experience here but it certainly won't be our last! The food looked and more importantly tasted fantastic and the service we received was brilliant - very attentive but relaxed. A really special treat, can't wait for our next visit!

We were on a sort of business trip when we saw the sign on the main road and thought we had to give it a try.

A beautiful and well maintained country side road to get there, with a beautiful panorama.

Incredibly nice building with historical value the House where the restaurant and the hotel are.

Staff were very kind, the lunch menu was really nice, with great options both for vegetarians and non vegetarians.

We left he place with a sense of discovery, like one who has found a jewel and knows it will be there when needed!

Many thanks

For the evening dinner I chose the Market menu and enjoyed effectively 5 courses - canapé, pre starter, starter, main and desert - each course delicately presented, precisely timed and exactly the right amount of food on the plate, left feeling perfectly satisfied! The dining room is also a lovely atmosphere if you appreciate the traditional mansion house setting - everything here is of an extremely high standard.
