Good choice of food and prompt service

Enjoyed a very nice lunch here with a girlfriend recently. Food and wines both extremely good, if a little pricey. Only downside was the requirement to write down our food choices and then walk to the service bar to hand these in. I feel it would be better for an establishment of this standard to... read more

We attended a good friends wedding reception there yesterday and were amazed at how lovely this venue was, from the moment we entered ''The Hanger'', we were met with attentive bar staff. Looking around, we were blown away with the presentation and stylish décor. Very comfortable relaxing sofa's under cover at the entrance, then leading into the main seating area,... More

Went back to Kesgrave Hall after 1 year absence and it was as good as ever. The staff is so attentive and helpful telling you when a table becomes available, if you would like to sit outside. Which is so nice if the weather is hot and you can overlook the lovely green where parents play football etc. with their... More

This is our 'go to' place when we want a good meal in vibrant, happy surroundings. We visited on a sunny evening when the restaurant was buzzing on the inside and out on the large terrace (with many children released from tables between courses to play on the beautifully kept grass area). Lots of young, energetic staff to ensure the... More

We were given a voucher for milsoms for my husbands retirement. We were expecting fine dining. Nothing could be further from it! We could not book in advance so turned up at 1815 to ensure a table.we were faced with "the engine room" which was obviously the hub of the kitchens.when we eventually got someone to take any notice of...

We had a group to dinner and the majority of the food was fine. We had a few issues and when asked by the waitress how it all was we said the steak was tough and not wanting to eat it. She just said OK and walked off, obviously only wanting to hear good things. The patio area was really... More

This is a great restaurant and hotel. You will need a car to get there but it is well worth the trip. The food and bar are reasonably priced and the rooms absolutely brilliant with my room at least with a marble walled bathroom. A slight frustration was the squeaky floor in the room but a small matter in an... More

The food is really outstanding as is the service. It can be very busy at the weekends. We stayed overnight and the accommodation was really exceptional, we could not fault our stay. Well worth a visit.

The food was amazing and the service is exceptional. My husband ordered a dish, when it arrived he didn't like it, there was nothing wrong with it he just didn't like it. When the table was cleared the manager arrived and asked if there was something wrong, we said no he had made the wrong choice. The meal that my... More

Monday evening, restaurant busy but not packed. Food arrived quickly and was delicious ( shared mixed breads, trout and salmon mains, gin and tonic panacotta / chocolate mango mousse ). Service was friendly and quick. Really lovely evening, I'm going to cycle over next time and have a three course pudding meal and a couple of liqueur coffees. 😀
