This was my third visit across a 2 year period and due to my love of the duck fat chips I had the duck breast for main - again! You can't get those chips with any other dish or as a side, but I'm not complaining because the duck is always sublime. One member of our party took their baby... More

We booked and waited in anticipation to eat at The hand and flowers... The food was sublime. I had the Hand & Flowers Warm Gala Pie with "Matson" Spiced sauce which might just be the best starter I've ever eaten! For main I had Tenderloin of Wiltshire Pork with Pickled Mustard Leaf, Malt Glazed Cheek, Garlic Sausage and Potato Dauphine.... More

My wife surprised me with lunch here and I can't find anything to fault at all. The service was friendly, prompt but not overbearing and attentive at the right points. We started with a G&T in the lounge/bar area and were lead to our table in a timely fashion. The complimentary whitebait and breads were delicious. I then had the... More

My partner and I visited for his 30th birthday. We had stayed before in the dexter suite in 2013 and wanted to try the Charolais suit this time. We stayed for two nights on a Sunday and Monday night. The accommodation is beautiful, they have lots of lovely touches such as fresh lardy cake in the room. The hot tub... More

We booked this up a while back and it was worth the wait. Amazing food, not too pricey and fantastic staff. They even left a birthday card on the table for my wife. Bloody marvellous, cant praise this restaurant enough. If you can , then you must go.

Basically, don't stay in the Apple House. It is right next door to a night club, and with no sound proofing we felt like the bed was on the dance floor. We told the staff the next morning who admitted it was a common complaint so something they're well aware of. The just choose to let the guests find out... More

Having read reviews I too agree that the food is top notch, we both ate a la carte and were not disappointed in the slightest. The setting is less formal than other high end restaurants but that doesn't detract from the ambience and makes for a more relaxed time; the staff were friendly and attentive but not intrusive. The bar... More

Fantastic from start to finish. Lovely space in the bar to have a drink before/after your meal. Service fantastic throughout. The quality of the food was just incredible. Couldn't fault anything about our evening. Well worth the 12 month wait for our friend's 50th birthday celebration.

We visited on a Monday evening and were blown away by the place. Food was incredible and the ambience relaxing. Staff made us feel at home and, as a destination restaurant, it lived up to its reputation. Thank you.
