We visit Candlesticks quite often and we are always warmly welcomed by Nelio and staff. It's a pleasure to visit not just because the food is excellent but because we genuinely enjoy seeing Nelio and his team. The whole experience is a pleasure from the moment we walk through the doors and are greeted in the bar for pre-meal drinks... More

The bed was really comfortable , the in room breakfast bar was well stocked though we chose the full English served in the bar area and are glad we did. All the food was... More

I will rise to defend any criticism of this family run restaurant. When I read notes such as ‘the sauce was bland’ or ‘over/under cooked’ ... these are subjective statements and relate to the writers personal taste. Over the years we have taken or met my sisters, friends, family and extended family, and received recommendations from rather obscure contacts. This... More

On arriving was greeted by owner who was very pleasant. Showed me to my room. My room was very cold as heating didnt come on until later. I was told of the electric heater provided in my room and so used this. I must admit my room could have done with a good decorate and was very dated. To be... More

We were met in reception by a staff member who was polite and helpful and asked to sit in the reception area and ordered our food....strange we thought as people were arriving and... More

After reading the reviews, I thought this place was going to be and instant hit. we live in Stamford and never been to this place, and we can see why now, nobody locally really recommends this place. There were a group of us who went for a meal last Saturday and nobody was overwhelmed with the food or slap and... More

Our first visit for dinner after a recommendation. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent, huge portions and piping hot.The restaurant was a little dim but you soon got used to it and it became very atmospheric.. Nice to have proper silver service for a change. Will certainly go again.

I planned to stay at candlesticks for a week for work experience at RAF Wittering. Although my trip was cut short due to unforeseen circumstances, I thoroughly enjoyed the one night I did stay! Although dinky, the B&B provides everything you need. A perfect location if you are going on a business trip or a stay where you need to... More

Our annual trip to Stamford, yet again sampling the hospitality of this excellent Hotel. The quality and the courtesy of our Hosts has not fallen and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The food and wines were absolute perfection and Candlesticks is yet again recommended as an ideal venue for exploring this fantastic area.
