As the heading says, had lunch here yesterday with my wife and her parents. Has been while since we were here and in the time it has got even better - I would honestly say that the food served was equal to any Michelin star restaurant we have visited in the last year (I we have been to quite a...

We stayed at Thornbury Castle for one night for our anniversary weekend away with my daughter and her partner. This is a very special hotel! We stayed in the Gatehouse which has two bedrooms, a lounge and a well equipped kitchen. Drinks in the drawing room followed by a stunning meal in the restaurant and coffee in the library made...

My husband and I were treated to Champagne afternoon tea at this hotel last week - it was a belated birthday present. We had a late breakfast and no lunch that day so that we would enjoy it more. The Castle ruins are in the grounds, very interesting to walk around, lots of history! Although we were only there for... More

If you serve meals of that minimum quantity in Italy, you would be arrested. The place is very good and the decor is just fine. The meal is something that tells you: Do not go there anymore.

We had a light lunch, Royal Tea, dinner and breakfast at the castle. All were delicious, beautifully presented and served with class. We had the Jasmine Tea which was wonderful. Dinner was served in a dimly lit, dark paneled dining room by a courteous and knowledgeable staff.

We booked a table for four on a Wednesday lunchtime. The staff were courteous and efficient over the phone and equally so for our visit. The hotel is full of character, it's worth a visit just for the history, the castle dates mainly from the early 16th century. We were initially seated in the main lounge, all very quaint and...

We visited this 500-year old castle to look around, but discovered the beautiful restaurant and stayed for lunch. The staff was not very experienced, but they really made an effort. The menu is short but there are enough choices for everyone. We had a few really nice dishes, with a good wine. The wines are listed in an appropriate way... More

A great disaster. We were recommended to dine at this historic castle especially as we had stayed previously at Hever Castle in Kent, home to Anne Boleyn.. What a mistake. The girls on the reception desk knew nothing about the hotel the welcome was in itself cold. Fresh flowers would have been welcoming especially as there were 'gardens' surrounding the... More
