My attention was drawn to the cigarette ends in the plant pots as I approached the front doors, which was due to the lack of ashtrays being provided.

This lovely fine dining hotel/restaurant is lovely. The staff welcome you as soon as you arrive, and you are from then on treated exceptionally well. The food was delicious and was presented beautifully. The roast beef was absolutely delicious and the staff always on hand, very obliging and polite. The chocolates at the end of the meal were mouthwateringly yummy!

Celebrating a wedding anniversary, we wanted something special: great food, relaxed but attentive service and a thoroughly warm and welcome environment. 'The Vineyard at Stockcross' delivered, and delivered well. Instead of ploughing through their extensive wine list we chose to let the sommelier, Paolo, chose for us. A different wine with each course, perfectly matched and perfectly delicious. Normally we... More

we stayed for a weekend at the Vineyard and ate in the restaurant both on Friday and Saturday nights. On the Friday we enjoyed the 7 course tasting menu with accompanying wines - absolutely delicious but probably too much food! On the Saturday, we enjoyed the 5 course dinner which was equally good.

Fresh scones with choice of plain or fruit served with clotted cream and two jam choices. A wide choice of taster cakes, again superbly presented.

We went for a Anniversary meal in the California Bar. The service was good and attentive, if at times they seemed a bit confused. However my wife's goat cheese salad (main portion size), which had a good description on the menu, was just a few very small balls, similar to the balls of butter you sometimes find at B&Bs, on...
