We also had dinner the other night as a party of four, yes the surrounding were superb, the dinning room furniture look wonderful but I have sat on church pews that were more comfortable. Initially the service was good but as the evening wore on and my back and then my bottom became numb I became all to aware that... More

Excellent set menu's to choose from, very good merlot wine, friendly outstanding service and grand décor and surroundings. The wash rooms were the best I've ever seen in a restaurant, and that shows great respect for customers.

We visited as part of a party of four and we all found the surrounding beautiful. Initially the service was good and we were asked if we wanted to wait for our friends in the bar which has a wonderful terrace with a pleasing view. Once we were shown to our seats to dine I was surprised that no one... More

The place is an amazing setting and the staff are ok but its got to be the worst Chinese food ever. Its as if they have used ready made sauces from a super market. Such a shame with such a great venue.

We had a party of around a hundred all booked. The service was poor, food came at different times, I have eaten better in most places and the PA system which we had paid for was appalling so our international speakers ( one a Baroness another a Knight) couldn't be heard which was embarrassing. To top it, the owner of... More

We are very disappointed to see your very unfair and completely one sided review on here about us. I feel I must clarify with anyone who reads your review the truth about what happened that evening. Firstly, you were constantly changing the number of guests which made it very hard for us to organise the evening. For over 100 guests,... More

We went to this beautiful place on sat 21st june 2014 & were greeted & seated by a very friendly gentleman- the service-food & décor is wonderful the problem came when our bill arrived. I was amazed at a 10% service charge (which I rejected) but the total bill was £143 instead of £71.50 & on questioning who I believe... More

The food was medium at best, the service was poor and I would not go here again, we tried the buffet and it was pricey, there were flies around deserts and the guy at the front looks like a police as opposed of welcoming

We couldn't resist visiting this amazing restaurant for its unique architectural style which alone made the visit worthwhile. However, the food did not match the surroundings and portions were on the "fashionably meagre" side! The food was acceptably tasty but not as much as anticipated. Prices were a bit on the high side too. I kept getting distracted by the... More

Happened upon this restaurant by chance and so glad we did. Fresh and tasty food no additives !! Sometimes associated with Chinese foods. Set in the most amazing part of the old Harrogate Spa and Baths. The food befitted the wonderful surroundings The staff friendly yet professional. All in all well worth a visit.
