We went as a party of eight for dinner for a family celebration over Easter weekend.
The setting is lovely and the newly refurbished hotel is delightful with lovely reception areas and attractive dining room.
When I booked I was asked whether it was for a special occasion which it was and staff came and congratulated newly engaged couple during meal and brought iced "congratulations" biscuits at the end which was a really nice touch.
The menu is extensive and interesting and we thoroughly enjoyed our food which was well cooked and well presented.
The "Piggy Bits" starters were all a great hit, likewise the potted duck,pigeon breast and loin of rabbit.
The Bath Chap was huge - we were warned - with the largest amount of crackling I have ever encountered on a plate but perhaps a bit more fatty than expected.
The only area where we were slightly disappointed was puddings which weren't quite up to standard of the rest of the meal - or perhaps we had over-indulged on the previous courses!
It was a late booking and we were accommodated on the Kitchen Table which was in a room off the main dining room which was absolutely brilliant for us as we could enjoy ourselves without disturbing other diners by talking as a larger group but you weren't completely isolated from the rest of the diners. If you are a larger group, it is a great venue.
The staff were relaxed and friendly.
Wine list is very extensive and the ones we drank were excellent.
Highly recommended - we will return!
