We drove to all the way from Brighton to Washington, after having read the excellent reviews, to celebrate my partner's birthday and our seventh anniversary. We were looking forward to have lunch at the venue on Friday afternoon (15th Aug) . Arrived at the venue at 13:23 and to our disappointment it was closed. I am even more disappointed as... More

Once you know where to park the car all your problems are over! You are greeting very warmly,offered drinks which are accompanied by complimentary nibbles. Then comes the best part,you are shown to your table, after already choosing your meal from a very extensive menu. The starters were substantial and very tasty, as was the delicious main course and none... More

Evening started well being seated in the bar area to browse the menu and have a drink before going to our table but then it went downhill rapidly. The first meals came out for our table and the waitress said " i have the chicken errrmmm something" and placed it down she didn't have a clue what is was and... More

Went here for lunch to celebrate a family birthday. One of the party - the birthday girl, is wheat intolerant, which I had mentioned when I booked. All this was noted and a gluten free appetiser was provided together with bread.We chose from the A la Carte menu and the food was delicious and beautifully presented. Before coffee ,with the...

I went here as part of a special occasion with a group of friends, and we all found the food, service and ambience to be great. The location and decor of the restaurant and bar area give it such a country and homely feel, and the service is both professional and personal in a great, equal measure. The amuse bouche... More

We have been to this restaurant many times and have always had a lovely meal but last night the food was very disappointing. The bread, chefs appetiser and my starter of soup were lovely. Up to standard it was a shame the rest of the meal was not. My main meal came on a bed of mashed potato. One taste... More

Traditional looking restaurant and hasn't changed a bit since I was last there about 7 years ago.....not a bad thing, it shows consistency, but petit fours in a bucket of mist was quite cutting edge then but it's not really now. The 3 courses for £14.95 was certainly good value and I enjoyed my Goats Cheese Soufflé, Rib-eye steak (£3.95... More

We come back to this restaurant time and again for special occassions and have bought alot of our friends here. They are always impressed with both the food and the atmosphere. Although it may not be as cheap as some other restaurants it is still value for money. The speciality breads are gorgeous and you get to take away any... More

First visit to the Chardonnay. Certainly not our last. Excellent value meal at £38.00 for the two of us. Unexpected 'taster' supplied f.o.c,such a nice and welcomed gesture. Staff,friendly,courteous,professional and helpful. The meal was presented beautifully,very tasty and highly recommended. The surroundings were clean,tables laid out superbly,and the decor comfortable with low beams and lovely Olde World charm. Well done... More
