We have dined at 1881 on a number of occasions when staying at Wrea Head Hall and find the food and the service to be of a consistently high standard. The hotel owners have invested both money and style into refurbishment of the hotel to create a Country House experience for guests, and this is followed through in the dining... More

We stayed in a well equipped and large double room with superb views of the countryside looking towards the coast. The restaurant (1881) was a real find with a wide and varied menu superbly cooked and presented and very good value as part of our hotel package. Hope to visit again.

I booked a table for the 'Ladies who Lunch' offer advertised. On booking, I was told over the telephone that there was a funeral wake taking place but we could have a table in either the conservatory or the library. This seemed fine and I requested a high chair. To my surprise, they didn't have a high chair so I... More

On seeing an advert for a special offer, a friend booked for us to go and have a good catch up as we had not managed to meet up due to working and childcare commitments etc. On arrival we were NOT greeted warmly, in fact the impression was that we were an inconvenience and were told we had to go...

Brilliant restaurant. Don't miss an opportunity to taste the food here. Could not believe how good the service was either. Even young Bill the trainee was great. Kevin the head waiter was very welcoming and ensured we had a fantastic time. Highly recommended.

Starters of fish were cut into small pieces and deep-fried in an oil that overpowered the accompaniments to such an extend that we could not taste them. The main of scallops was also overpowered by the plate of meat... More

Tasty food served by attentive staff made this restaurant very enjoyable. Great choice on the table d'hote menu and great value on the half board option in the hotel.
