My family and I recently went to the restaurant to celebrate a birthday and were disappointed to find that the only food available on a Sunday is the carvery. Now the carvery is very nice and excellent value for money but children do not always want this and we had two of the children in our party who did not... More

Excellent service and a good range of well prepared and presented food. The two waiters were attentive and eager to please. We will certainly be returning.

I delayed writing this review in the hope that someone from the hotel would contact those people who were let badly down on Christmas Day. Like most people we were expecting a silver service meal served on time. Not so! We won't be back.

This was our first Christmas Day dinner at the Beauchief and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was excellent, table layout was good and the atmosphere was festive. The only negative comment would be the very slow service which would not have been a problem for us had there been only one sitting. We wasn't offered coffee and left... More

I reviewed this poor restaurant last Christmas and it would appear it has not improved. These reviews echo what I wrote 12 months ago.

We really do not know where to begin with this review.After going through a very sad year with a close family bereavement we decided to have Christmas dinner in a top restaurant, or so we thought!! We arrived at 3pm to find that the previous sitting were still in the middle of their main course and there was no way... More

I completely uphold the previous comments by Klive. Our party of 5 had also booked for the second sitting for the Carvery Christmas lunch. When we walked down to the Riverside room (similar to a basement cloakroom) there were people still clearly finishing lunch from the earlier sitting. There were no staff on hand to receive you or to explain... More

Mr Smith & Mr Baker need to be ashamed of this Festive Fiasco. We had booked a table of 8 for Christmas Day lunch at 3.30pm paying a large deposit. On arrival we were 'herded' downstairs to receive a welcome drink of Cranberry juice and Prosecco. You could tell from the initial reaction of the staff that they were under... More

A big thank you to everyone who made our Christmas party such a success. There were thirty four if us in our group and they all gave me plenty of positive feedback about the quality of service, food and venue. Couldn't be faulted. A brilliant night.
