Once again, the food hits the spot!

Now, I'm not one for writing reviews or comments but after telling a co-worker about my experience over at Borve House, she encouraged me to do so. After having a browse through the previous reviews, I was shocked to see the continuous comments about how the food was described as 'unediable' and... read more

We have had great food in the past in the Borve Country House Hotel. We went in at 4pm the place was empty and a snack menu was on offer. The baked potatoes were £7.95 each and just not worth it. My daughter had a coleslaw baked pot and it arrived at a chilled temprature. My husbands was warm. My... More

I visited this restaurant with 7 other family members. We were all very disappointed in the food we were served. The scampi tails were so obviously frozen and coated in a thick brown crumb.the pork was mostly fat the chips were soft the calamari was coated in the same crumb as the 'scampi' tails. The pancake thar surrounded the malteser... More

Arrived without reserving which was good although the restaurant quickly filled up. Nice decor. Fantastic customer service from the waitress-v polite, attentive and friendly. Varied menu. Quality of food was lower than what we expected- watery salsa, nachos which were just tortilla chips covered in a packet of cheddar cheese, chicken burger with nothing in it apart from the chicken...

We ate here on two nights and both nights the food was lovely. The portions were huge but did not lack quality and the prices were reasonable. On the second night we asked if we could take our pudding away which we could. The only reason I haven't marked it as excellent is because the service on the second night... More

Family reunion and celebration spoiled by poor quality food that was served cool to warm.Despite having specifically asked for the soup to be served piping hot. Two out of three main courses returned as inedible. Very sad and very disappointed. I actually cancelled my review from last night but the more I thought about it overnight the restaurant owners should... More
