We had a lovely meal at this restaurant last Sunday for my father in law's birthday. The piano playing was lovely and really added to the atmosphere. We had a quick drink in the refurbished bar area too which was very nice and looks beautiful.

We went for a Sunday lunch. Very good value for money, choice of mains, gentle musical entertainment and very attentive service.

Food at Bereafords is always good. Some food is served on slates which are heated as plates are so the food stays hot. The food always looks fabulous as well as tasting amazing. The wine is good too, but be prepared to pay for a good bottle.

My wife and I signed up to the Valentines one night package this month. The four course dinner was one of the best experiences we've had in the restaurant - great food, beautifully presented in a convivial atmosphere with excellent live music. This is just the greatest place to come and chill. Strongly recommended. Steve S

We went for dinner with friends and on arrival were immediately impressed with the new look of the hotel. The new bar area is warm and welcoming with a double feature fireplace and lots of comfy sofas to relax for pre dinner drinks. What really surprised us was the quality of the food which was excellent. The crab & leek... More

We had a refreshing palette cleanser of strawberry sorbet in champagne which was to die for, then we both had the lamb which really was Cooked to perfection. I had the chocolate... More
