The strikingly grand restaurant features a magnificent fireplace and hand painted ceiling under which 3 AA Rosette French inspired cuisine with a modern twist is served. A variety of menus are available: the daily changing Temptation menu, the A la carte Indulgence and our Grand Experience, which is a wonderful gourmet tasting menu. Menus change with the seasons, using the finest local produce. We grow many ingredients in our own Victorian Walled Garden such as fruits, a large variety of herbs and carefully selected vegetables.

Great location and food

We booked the restaurant on a voucher which gave us dinner for two at half price. The hotel is in a great location and the lounge is warm and comfortable. We had dinner from the indulgence menu and we enjoyed all the dishes. The staff were pleasant, not stuffy, and service good, no delays but we... read more

First - this is a review of the restaurant - NOT the hotel. The hotel is a charming 4 star country house, with welcoming staff , great surroundings and a well appointed dining room and we enjoyed a nice room. The restaurant web site boasts a fine dining experience. We really wanted to love it and enjoy it. But sadly... More

My mother had visited the Hotel when it was a private residence and so I took her there as a treat. Tried to call to make a reservation for lunch but no reply either to the phone or the web enquiry sheet. However downloaded the very impressive Sutherland lunch menu from the web site and decided to give it a... More

We were delighted with our choices and would have no hesitation in returning or recommending! The dining room is very elegant and atmosphere a little subdued but this was very much in keeping with the establishment.

we ate here last weekend and had an extremely pleasant dinner outing. I am an experienced diner with a waistline to prove it and I would rate the food here among the best nosebags I have ever sampled. the ambiance and décor are both in keeping with the country house hotel 'experience' that we so enjoy and we'll definitely be...

First visit in a year and the food for the first time disappointed. Everything lacked finesse and execution of previous visits. Steak served with 3 cherry tomatoes and unseasoned mushrooms. Tarte tatin was a tiny slice of apple pie with a scope of ice cream. Petit fours wasn't petit fours but a few chocolates out a box. Etc. Here's hoping... More

Both the starter and desert were excellent however we were underwhelmed by the main meal which was fillet steak; it was bland/totally tasteless. I would recommend when staying at the hotel you dine elsewhere, our comments fell on deaf ears and we were still billed in full for a poor meal that was not edible. A replacement meal was also...

We made a booking for dinner in February for a large group celebrating a big birthday back in the Autumn of 2013. We accidentally read online that the hotel is closed for refurbishment until March. Nobody from the hotel had the courtesy to let us know that they could not honour our booking. We are now left high and dry... More

We apologise sincerely that this happened and accept full responsibility. The truth is that at the time booking our staff did not record any contact details so we had absolutely no way of contacting you after we made the tough decision to close for the winter. I can assure you that lessons have been learnt and I would sincerely like... More

We are guests at the Cringletie House and dined here our first evening. We started off in the bar with a beverage and canapés. Proceeded to the dinning room for our appetizer, dinner and dessert: dill infused salmon, lamb & pesto couscous followed by a chocolate mouse & pistachio ice cream. We finish our dining experience with coffee and petite... More

We have stayed in Cringletie House several times and the standard of food and service is always outstanding. We had the tasting menu with matched wines. The range of flavours and textures in the food is just lovely. The pudding was a work of art and it seemed a real shame to crack it open (but I did andit was... More
