Great Food but service was a let down!!

We are here for a special meal! The menu is very boutique with a small choice but variety! The meal itself was lovely with it arriving after being order quickly and hot. Seasoned to perfection and a great taste. The main let down of the meal was the slow drinks order, had to wait 15 mins to order... read more

We stayed at Marlborough Vintners Hotel for two nights and dined at the restaurant on the first night Lovely food and attentive waiters made for a lovely evening. We went for the MVH branded Pinot Noir which was very drinkable. A very easy wind down end to the day. Thanks

We had been expecting good things from this restaurant but sadly it didn't live up to expectations. The restaurant was full but there were only 2 waiting staff. We had to wait a long time to order drinks and an even longer time to order food. We had thought that we would be given guidance about the wines but the... More

We ate here 2 nights running whilst staying at the Marlborough Vintners Hotel. The food was superb. We are the Dory and Venison on the first night, and the Warehau, Salmon Ravioli and the Parmesan Tart. They were delicious. The wines (and beers) offered represented a good selection of the local vineyards. The chef cooked up bespoke meals for our... More

Great restaurant which is part of Vintners Hotel. The food and service here were second to none. A small menu but the choices were all tempting and cooked/presented to perfection. All set in delightful surroundings. lt was our first and best meal while staying in Marlborough. Many thanks to the owners and staff.

Echoing the previous review - we had fresh salad and parsnip soup with dumplings, very tasty and well presented. However my main course, belly of pork with mashed potato and cauliflower, was very dry and the meat had obviously been sitting in the kitchen under a hot lamp for a long time. I sent it back and asked for some... More

We enjoyed a leisurely dinner (i.e., relaxed service) sampling wines and beers from the limited, but sufficient list, two tasty entrees, and bread. The two of us had decided at the beginning of the meal to have the smoked salmon ravioli as a main course and to share it. When it finally arrived, we each had one bite and put... More

The setting is beautiful with a superb view of the garden, the waiting staff were attentive without being intrusive and the food was not only beautifully presented it tasted absolutely delicious. My husband is vegetarian and he had a superb, well thought out, well balanced dinner. I had probably the best salad I've ever had and the tastiest veal. The... More

Reading others' review of Vintners, it's possible we struck the restaurant on a bad night. It was Saturday night and the restaurant was about a third full. The sole wait-person seemed pleasant but extremely busy. The Maitre D was also very busy. They were reasonably efficient but we had many long waits and we both found the Maitre D somewhat... More
