Not surprised by the quality and service

We ate in the Main dining room our first night at Hayfield and wanted something lighter the second. We were not let down by Orchids! Service was more than adequate, food quality was way above average, and the attitude of all staff was excellent. There were a large number of locals eating there... read more

When you stay at a five star hotel you would think that the restaurant would atleast know how to cook a steak? But no, medium rare was well done. And the taste was bland. Dissapointed!

Orchids has excellent Food and such an attentive staff team. Honestly just go with their recommendations and your pallet will explode in a way it has not before. The same with the wine. Just take the Sommeliers advice, subject to budget of course! honestly the whole experience is like have your own personalised Dinner Theatre experience. It broke the bank... More

Recently had afternoon tea here. The cakes and sandwiches were so fresh and delicious it was worth every penny. But I must say its the staff that make this place. From the doorman that greeted us with a smile, to the manager who came over to chat after the meal, we were made to feel so welcome. 5 star luxury... More

I had lunch with my family , five in party , the ambience was alright but the dinning room/conservatory was over heated . The service was helpful , Where this restaurant failed to impress was with its food . The tastiest item on the table was the brown bread . I had halibut with mussels and a very meagre quantity...

The food was outstanding. Choice of wines by the glass slightly limited especially one to match the foie gras on the menu. The venison was excellent and cooked to perfection. Staff were super.

Went here for Valentines night with my husband. Have heard amazing things about this 5 star hotel and so my hopes were high! I started with the scallops which were very tasty but tiny portion but all in all I was happy with it. My husband had the smoked chicken and ham hock terrine which was also lovely and a... More
