Lovely, amazing location, and fabulous service

Came here with a group of friends to celebrate a 40th birthday. The setting is magical. Lovely service outside with drinks, then lovely meal and drinks in our own private room for the evening.

Totally honest review here. Brilliant hotel, rooms are superb....amazing beds, bedding, shower, facilities. Lovely grounds and outdoor area.. However after my 3rd stay the food has once again let it down. A message to the senior management, sort the food......then you have a truly fantastic establishment.

Attended a birthday dinner here last week - sadly the function rooms were all booked and the staff were unwilling to accommodate 16 of us round one table - it wouldn't have been difficult to put the oblong tables together! However, the service from then onwards was very good and the food was also good - as usual - even... More

Luxurious setting, kesgrave hall is perfect for a special occasion. Great menu and the doughnuts were especially delicious. More pricey than average but worth the price in my opinion. Would definitely return.

We visited Milsoms Kesgrave after a few months away. We love the surroundings and the setting, the style of the laid back do your own order is great, it helps engage a conversation with staff and your family and friends about what sounds good and what you want to eat and no messing about being over formal, it's not that...

The staff are so accommodating to me and my dog. I've never eaten here before but I was warmly welcomed with what I can only call a 'designer dog bowl' for my thirsty pooch. Sitting down and looking through the menu I spotted the special sheets with whole lobster and Cromer Crab!! Two of my favorites I was spoilt for... More

Regularly visit Milsoms Kesgrave, what a fantastic place. Fantastic service, while maintaining a casual environment, and they get it right every time. The food is out of this world. By far the best in the area, always well presented and tastes even better. Great cocktail menu as well! Will continue to dine here and recommend!

Called in for a very late lunch - first time visit. Lovely peaceful environment. We had the sea bass and the sea trout - both had great flavours and filled a little hole. The ordering is a bit weird especially when we tried to order at the bar (it was late and we were hungry) and were directed to a... More

We visited this venue for a family celebration , quite pricey and had to go too the bar to order food and drink . Staff were rushed and a little 'frazzled' ... Over all the food was ok , but there is much more potential that could be delivered from this venue
