My wife and I thought we'd take her father out for a quiet Sunday lunch at the revamped Oaklands. It was totally unorganised chaos; prepay for the carvery! Are you having a dessert sir - I don't know YET! Well if you do come back to the bar and pay! Coffee sir - you've guessed it come back to the... More

For some extraordinary reason, somone has come up with the notion of mixing a hotel with a pub ie when going for lunch, you sit down, decide on your choice of courses, join the queue at the bar and then order and pay for your food. Then back to table for your starter if you have one, and join another... More

visited the new (but not officially open oak bar this week. The new bar is very modern, and comfortable. The new decking terrace is stunning. The staff are very friendly but seemed to be very disorganised but we put that down to all the scarily old folk (who belonged in the carvery restaurant - which was closed due to the... More

I would like to compliment Oaklands on their staff who made our Sunday overnight visit very enjoyable, especially the restaurant staff - both evening and morning who were all very pleasant, friendly and helpful and a credit to the hotel. The food quality and value for money was outstanding, this is from someone who spends 6 months of the year... More

We went in a small family party and it was absolutely heaving. It was VERY noisy indeed. There was a wedding on, the restaurant and bar were absolutely jam-packed and masses of children ran about shrieking and crashing into furniture. The tables were very close together and it was difficult to get up and go to the bar or the... More

Having booked a Lodge for my Mother to get ready for her wedding we were all looking forward to the luxury promised on the website. Whilst it was lovely accommodation it was not up to standard, the promised kitchen facilities were very poor. We were told there would be fridge, microwave and toaster... There was in fact only a toaster!... More

Very helpful staff enabled an earlier check-in. Quiet, comfortable room at the end of a corridor enabled a good night's sleep. Nice pillows. Tea Making facilities good. Good venue for a wedding-well organised, good facilities, pleasant staff, food okay- plentiful. Good creme brûlée! Nice atmosphere. Breakfast was decent. Staff got me a pot of hot water and a separate tea-bag... More

What a gem! Had an excellent meal with family last night... highly recommend the thai spiced mussels - they are to die for! We shared the chocolate junkyard cake (love the name) for dessert - delicious! The new bar and terrace has been really stylishly done... great atmosphere, super friendly and attentive waiting staff and amazing value for money. Roll... More
