This was our second visit to the restaurant as we live fairly locally. It has a very calm and quiet atmosphere, conducive to a romantic or special occasion meal. The food is superb with many original touches and ingredients you don't find in most restaurants. Our first and main courses were served on slate platters, which was quite quirky. The... More

I recently visited Beresford's restaurant as a special treat for our anniversary. We had heard lovely reviews and we weren't disappointed. We just happened to mention that it was our first night out together since our baby was born and that it was also our anniversary and the staff were so kind to us. We received wonderful service and were... More

We were lucky enough to stay at the Balmer Lawn and experience an evening meal and breakfast in the restaurant. The 3 course meal was outstanding and the breakfast equally delicious. I only wish we'd stayed around for the carvery on the Sunday which smelt delightful! The service was excellent. Lovely restaurant in a beautiful hotel and area. I would... More

Stayed at the Balmer Lawn for one night. We arrived early on the Sunday for the carvery lunch. The carvery was very good, choice of 3 meats and roasties and large yorkshires which you helped yourself to. They brought out a bowl of fresh vegetables for you. A pianist was playing in the background and was very good value for... More
