Set in the Lygon Arms Hotel in the small Cotswold village of Broadway, The Great Hall provides a striking setting for a meal that needs to impress. This oak-panelled restaurant is full of period charm, with an imposing barrel-vaulted ceiling, 17th-century minstrels' gallery and stately suits of armour. Two AA Rosettes adorn the restaurant's modern European menu, prepared with classical French flair, which features ingredients grown in the hotel's own gardens.

What a disappointment. Slow service, dull food and a hefty bill. I ordered beef to start, which tasted like corned beef from a tin, but without the flavour. This was followed by an equally insipid corn-fed chicken in a plate of broth - I've seen more tempting turn-outs from Masterchef's invention test. Desserts were similarly taste free - even the...

I went with a group of friends for afternoon tea. We were expecting a great experience but it was just a standard afternoon tea with stale sandwiches. However the new owner was friendly.

We stayed at The Lygon Arms fro three days and we used this restaurant on our first night, quite pricey for the standard of the food a friends soup lacked flavour and my rib eye steak was very chewy. We enjoyed our stay but went to other venues to eat on the other two nights.
