I visited the restaurant in April this year with my partner. We decided to book with Park House as we were impressed with the sound of the menu and the positive reviews. We booked approximately three weeks prior. We opted for the À la Carte Menu. From the second we got there I felt out of place. Some members of... More

Fabulous, articulate food in an exquisite historic venue. 7 amazing courses adjusted to suit my vegetarian partner whilst I opted for the 'standard' meat menu. Albeit there was nothing standard about the food served. When I mentioned that the apple pudding was not exactly what I would have ended the meal with the chef delivered chocolates. Lovely touch

The experience of this restaurant begins before you even enter the building. Set in a beautifully built mansion, the exterior is traditional without looking too formal. I was very surprised to see a doorbell on the front door, and at first had assumed I had com across the wrong address. All this just adds to the atmosphere though. The atmosphere... More

We arrived a little early we were made welcome immediately. The meal was the taster menu and it was magnificent, beautifully presented and the service was excellent. The waiters were very knowledgeable about the food that they were presenting and the wine they suggested was amazing... Definitely the place for that very special occasion..

I cannot praise The Park House highly enough.We had my sons wedding reception and the evening celebrations there, and the attention to detail was second to none, the staff could not have been friendlier and more helpful, and the food was simply outstanding. It was lovely to go there prior to the wedding to look at the different rooms available,... More

I visited this restaurant as a birthday treat from my girlfriend and as such she had opted for the 7 course taster menu with wine pairings. This gave me a lot of excitement even before our visit. The outside of this establishment is beautiful and as we walked in we were greeted by a friendly man (who turned out to... More

My wife and I decided to ease the pain of the painful defeat of Australia by England in the First Ashes Test by trying Park House . We were not disappointed . Any restaurant that has Jim Barry's " The Armagh" available by the glass warrants serious consideration . The house made breads were excellent . A pate macaroon amuse... More

I write a lot of reviews and rarely give five stars as I believe that this accolade should be reserved for something very special. Park House fully deserves this rating. The interior is like a Manor House with a wood-panelled dining room. We had excellent,attentive and friendly service throughout the evening, starting with cocktails in the lounge, leading on to...
