Visited the Ventana for afternoon tea. As soon as we walked into the hotel a member of staff offered to take our coats and another asked us if they could help and then pointed us in the direction of the restaurant. Good first impressions. The venue was nicely decorated and there was a relaxed atmosphere. A mixture of people inside... More

Five of us went for Sunday lunch and we all came out very happy. Three of us had soup which was excellent and to my palate, it was home made and devoid of the 'packaged' soup taste. The other two had scallops which although perfectly cooked didn't have the fresh sweet taste of fresh scallops. We surmised the scallops were... More

To clarify, our expectations were extremely high; a romantic intimate meal for a very special occasion was what we had in mind. The Ventana Grand ticked all the boxes on paper. What it didn't say was that it was a restaurant in a hotel that also catered for families. Don't get me wrong, I have a family and I take... More

Been here before and the ideal place to eat. Good food, relaxing ambience, pleasant staff what more could you want? Well there is one thing, they could get rid of their awful Muzak system and buy something which doesn't skip, go silent for a second or so and play some decent background music. Apart from that no complaints.

We used the restaurant on both evening of our stay, entertaining friends on the second evening and it proved to be a most pleasurable experience. Staff were extremely pleasant and efficient throughout, and menus were varied, well presented, and very tasty. Proving to be excellent value Happy to recommend to anyone.
