Superb food!

Good choices available for each course and excellent wine list. Food is very well presented and cooked to perfection. Probably one of the best meals I have ever had!

We stayed for just one night and ate at the Outlook Restaurant. Fantastic hospitality with very friendly staff and excellent food. Easy walking via footpaths to the hills immediately to the rear.

My wife and I used this restaurant during our stay at the hotel. The food is as good as we have eaten anywhere, better than in many much higher priced establishments. The staff are knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. I have been searching the brain for a balancing negative but can't find one. Try it and see

I had looked forward to visiting the restaurant after all the reviews, sadly it was a disappointing visit. It was a Monday evening which may have not been the best time to visit. The barman was unwelcoming and unsmiling throughout our visit. When we sat down we had to ask for our coats to be taken to the cloakroom( at... More

Visited for Sunday lunch on a glorious sunny autumn day. Had pre-dinner drinks on the terrace with spectacular views over the Worcestershire countryside. Lunch was amazing. The choice was not huge but all the food was cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. The staff could not have been more helpful and were polite and attentive but unobtrusive.

The quality and style of food is simply excellent. I have been once before and will go again. If you are in the malvern area it's a must to visit. Apart from great views and staff, the food is a delight, well presented and a broad variety. Try the crab veline which is rather unusual and the smoked haddock risotto,... More

Fab food, nothings too much trouble. I couldn't manage to eat from the menu each night as the food was too rich but the chef cooked the best vegi's I've ever had with fish to die for. Superb deserts too and the biggest wine list I've ever seen.
