My wife and I visited this cafe for brunch and were quite disappointed. The coffee was nice although it took almost 15mins to be able to order from table service. The cafe was not busy either. Once we had ordered coffee and cake it then took another 20mins for the coffee to arrive and a further 5mins with prompting for... More

Nice enough, but very overpriced. 3 courses and a glass on wine was £50 per head. Soup was boring, quail was mainly stuffing and overdone, boring cheeses selected for desert. Wouldn't bother with again.

This place is lovely ,the food in the hotel is wonderful this small off shoot keeps the standard high but just a smaller and more informal menu . the hot chocolate is really something else and it's worth any detour just to have it.it's basically chocolate and hot milk blended .....

Having stayed at this hotel some years ago and enjoyed the experience, we wanted to return for supper. The four of us were very disappointed with the meal and found it overpriced and generally tasteless. You have to pay for bread and when it came it wasn't even warmed up and the 6 rolls were tasteless. Being an eco hotel... More

I can't tell you whether the food is any good, but I can tell you about the poor customer service. When we asked for a table at 8.55pm on a bank holiday Friday, they said yes, because there were plenty free. They then said we couldn't order a main course because the kitchen staff were already clearing up. I pointed... More

As with other reviews I found the menu very limited however making the best of it I placed my order with the friendly waitress. The first course arrived and was hot but bland and under... More

Strattons restaurant is small and pleasant . The décor is clean . The menu is quite limited and some of the food combinations had me scratching my head lol Although the food was of good quality obviously good produce chosen a lack of seasoning made the main meals a little bland. The cheese board taster was expensive for what it... More
