We had the 5 course tasting menu which was excellent. Unusual combinations and a very imaginative menu. The portions weren't huge which was just as well as I woul have managed it. My partner skipped dessert. The wine is pricey but there is a good choice. Nice atmosphere but some of the tables for 2 are a little close.

The food for both adults and children was excelllent. We had the 2 course Sunday lunch for £15.95 and both the beef and belly pork were superb. The English burnt cream for... More

Fresh food, beautifully cooked and presented with such detail and care. Our Christmas meal was fantastic, the vegetables were just right, not soggy. The fish I had later on in our stay was cooked to perfection.

Both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day we enjoyed a varied choice of menu - we all chose differently and all really enjoyed the cuisine- highly recommended

We enjoyed a wedding breakfast for our son's wedding on 31st October and the food and service was superb. The staff couldn't do enough for us. The following day 15 of us enjoyed a bistro lunch before leaving the hotel. Lunch was a little slow - but I put that down to all the food (differing orders) being freshly prepared.... More

Have visited Stanwells many times over past years. Had meals of very differing standards. Have not visited recently but friends have and have commended it. Maybe we should try it again. It there are other places to go.

Popped in for lunch on a sunny Saturday. All very relaxed and comfortable. Chicken Caesar Salad and a glass of white wine was very good, staff were impeccable, atmosphere a little muted but there was nothing wrong in that. I would recommend.
