The choice was not huge, but the food served was of high quality, and the service was top notch. We really enjoyed breakfast and dinner.

A good selection of dishes to suit all tastes, well presented and always hot. The breakfasts with a wide choice from fish dishes to the traditional English really set you up for the day. The evening meal well balanced with interesting combinations . Have eaten previously in Michelin starred restaurant and felt this standard should be awarded here.

Had 2 lovely evening meals at the Wrea Head Hall's inhouse restaurant & the breakfasts were great too! My partner and I could not fault any of the meals and we both commented how they matched 5 star restaurants we have enjoyed elsewhere.

The food in the 1881 was a great experience and the quality of the dishes met expectations. The 3 courses were some of the best we have eaten. The food was presented well and the service was also exceptional without being obtrusive. The restaurant for the 1881 is in Wrea Head Hall. Leading up to dinner there is a formal... More

i really enjoyed my prawn dish on the more expensive set menu followed by the lamb rack. extremely tasty and unusual flavours. Very well presented and the service very attentive if a bit stiff. My wife was equally impressed but had fillet of beef which she said was not as good as I had cooked a couple of days before.... More
