Amongst your words expressing satisfaction - for which many thanks - the one that gave me greatest pleasure was the word "unpretentious" because in my book there is nothing worse. John More

This was a luxurious treat, which we enjoyed a lot so thanks must go to our generous hosts. The food was top quality, well presented and delicious; the waiting staff were professional, as they should be in probably Malvern's finest dining establishments.

We were a group and had dinner both nights. It was beautifully presented and perfectly cooked, both by Dominic and his sous chef who stood in on the Sunday.

We had a delicious three course sunday lunch here with a large party. From start to finish I enjoyed every mouthful and can't fault a thing. My husband felt the same about his meal choices too. Lots of happy diners among our group and lots of empty plates. The views over the Malvern were spectacular. The bar was very well... More
