Food was excellent and service could not have been better. We enjoyed being there for their food and the service that the hotel provides.

We went originally as part of a meal deal with tickets to see Wicked. However we enjoyed it so much that we booked it independently when we went to see another show. The food is excellent and the choice on the carvery is excellent - every vegetable you could image too. They cater for vegetarians and fish lovers as well.... More

Excellent food. Only two roasts to choose from but fish and vegetarian options available. Wide range of vegetables all nicely cooked. Staff friendly and helpful even carrying plate from carvery to table.

Although the food was nothing special, the restaurant and decor are... More

We visited the Old Masters carvery as part of a theatre package with Wicked. We visited with my two young sons and I was initially concerned that the environment was perhaps not entirely child friendly and a tad formal. The staff were attentive, polite and incredibly welcoming. The service, although quite formal was utterly charming and quintessentially English, The food... More
