Had dinner here on our first night as part of a 2 night Travelzoo stay at the Balmer Lawn Hotel. Really nice ambience in the restaurant with very attentive waiting staff. Food was delicious and presented well. For main course we ordered monkfish which was advertised as being served with potatoes and samphire, so we didn't order any side dishes.... More

Like many other diners I chose the pork belly and was not disappointed. A surprise bonus was the new serving slates the meal came on, a lovely presentation. Prior to the pork I had soup which arrived piping hot in its new style modern black bowls. I love a restaurant that has a great signature dish and will definitely be... More

Great location, friendly service, but the food . . . You must try the Pork Belly - yum eee, and don't miss out on the best raspberry soufflé on planet earth! Overall a great meal, but service could be more slick, and prices are a tad high!

Dear Bobtdiver Thank you very much for this great review of some of our dishes, I must admit that the “pork belly” is one of my favourites too. No excuses for that less than slick service, our Restaurant Manager (Randy) is currently on a well-earned break but we should still be able to maintain his exacting standards in his absence.... More

The food and service is impeccable. I have never had better food anywhere, every single item on my plate each day was perfect. The new decor is also very refreshing and I really like it.

My wife and I, returned to this restaurant on our anniversary, a year after our wedding at the Balmer Lawn. The food was lovely and the service from Randy made it even more spectacular. He asked what our occasion was and made sure the meal was extra special. We will definitely be returning.

Dear Pad643 Thank you for you very kind review of Beresford's and Randy's service levels in particular. We have worked hard this year to completely redecorate the restaurant with new chairs and flooring, with the aim of making it feel more relaxed and informal. We very much look forward to welcoming you back next year for your second anniversary. More
