Great location, wasted opportunity

The Ethorpe has re-opened after a makeover. There is nothing wrong with the colour scheme (featuring the inevitable grey) - but the work has been done really badly. When I pushed open the door the brush marks (grey on black) were obvious - and it just got worse. This is a beautiful building, set... read more

We used to visit the Ethorpe quite regularly for an evening meal. Having not been there for about three months and wanting a table for four on a Friday evening we thought we had better book a table. It was a nice evening to sit outside with a drink but even so I was amazed to see the restaurant half... More

I really don't know what's happened to the ethorpe in recent months. I've eaten there for over ten years but in the last six months the service has become terrible. On a recent visit the restaurant was fairly quiet, the waiter took our drinks order but for everything else I had to go and find him or ask another member... More

Chose this hotel purely for its location as opposed to any recommendations. Meeting up for lunch for lunch with a few former colleagues and being about a minutes walk from the train station, suited those that didn't want to drive and wanted a nice pint (or 2), with lunch. Hotel bar and restaurant was very clean and well presented, though... More

We came for the Fathers Day lunch set menu. Oh dear, oh dear. From the off it wasn't good. We'd booked a table at 1.45, so wasn't that busy. The waiter took our orders without writing anything done, consequently, forgot our sons starter & main course & drinks! When our starters did finally come, it wasn't worth it, we'd orderd... More

I have written a review for the Hotel and thought it would be fair to write one for the bar and restaurant. I have also attached my hotel review here. We ate here twice during our stay, once being served by Luke and once by Chelsea and Vicky. The staff are truly wonderful and seem really happy in their jobs.... More

We enjoyed the lunch menu and thought it was really good value for money. This was combined with the bottle of wine voucher sent to me by email.

New members of staff are rude. Was served by someone I knew who quite happily stated that they refuse to serve us in front of her colleague in front of is with such an attitude. Luckily we had someone far better and the meal went down well. Personal issues should be left at the door in the working environment and... More

My Sister and I stayed there for one night (tried to book for 2 but full) We needed to be near the Harefield Hospital for my Mum. The rate was great value and location perfect for us! We arrived and told the receptionist of our situation and the staff are amazing. Offering us a later check out if needed and... More

Enjoyable stay for our golfing trip. Will definitely be back. Service and food was excellent and good value for money. Breakfast was also good value.
