7 of us ordered food and drink with the intention of spending the evening there. The staff were friendly, professional and welcoming ( but don't expect to hear an English accent!) The issue came with the 'pies' ( that are just casserole dishes with pastry on top) that were luke warm, bland and wholly disappointing. In fairness, the manager offered... More

Remember eating here about 10 years ago when it was the best restaurant in the area. Not so now. Had a very average steak with overcooked chips. Beer was not kept well. Staff disinterested and brought the bill at 9:00pm without being requested. We were last there at the time and they clearly wanted to go home.

Spent afternoon here. Must say the sun was shining. Wedding taking place looked beautiful against the back drop of the gardens. We had a fab lunch with plenty of cold drinks. Staff were very friendly and it was just brilliant to watch the tourists pass by and people watch, loved the setting in the heart of the village. We will... More

Visited today for lunch with our dog. We were made welcome in the bar area, which is very comfortable with nice chairs. We had sandwiches of crayfish and avocado and smoked salmon with cream cheese. Large portions so if you have a small appetite you could share as the sandwiches were triple dockers. Lovely pot of tea with huge pot... More

Didn't stay at the hotel but stopped for lunch in the bar. The food was of a very high quality and the prices reasonable. I had the small chicken and asparagus salad - freshly cooked, delicious and plenty big enough for a lunchtime. My husband had the chicken burger - also delicious. Would visit again. A nice outside area if... More

We stayed for three nights in Vole (room 4) and it was excellent. On the first night the hotel was very busy with a wedding on and the service at our meal was a bit slow, but the food overall was very good and the room excellent. The village is also a must see!
