Worthwhile experience, but would probably not go again if I was paying. Bought as a birthday gift for my partner, the decor and staff were up to Morley Hayes usual standard, exceptionally clean, friendly attentive staff. The food was good salmon and scrambled egg as a starter, then breakfast salad poached egg on a bed of warm salad and lardons,... More

Impressed by the professionalism of this establishment. From its staff to the food they serve, everything was perfect. I would highly recommend French onion soup and fig creme brulee

When booking the table over the phone a day before (a family meal for a birthday celebration) the gentleman that we spoke to was perfectly pleasant but told me that he was 'squeezing us in' and said lots of 'erms' and 'wells' (etc) as he was checking the bookings for a considerable length of time. This would be all well... More

We came here tonight for a 40th birthday for my fiance. The food and wine were exquisite and the service was excellent. The team couldn't do enough for us and even provided decorations and a card. A fantastic night made by the personal service so couldn't recommend highly enough thank you Morley Hayes.

We arranged a family Sunday lunch at the De Ferrers Suite to celebrate my son's 21st birthday, as the setting is ideal for the larger family occasion. The suite itself is on the ground floor and there is ample parking. We pre-ordered the meals from the menu suggested by the chefs at Morley Hayes, which are clearly designed to give... More

My daughter and I went for the champagne breakfast and it was just superb. The Champagne was beautiful and the food was divine. Would definitely recommend a Champagne Breakfast here - we thought the quality, surroundings and excellent service meant it was great value for money.
