Staff brilliant, food lovely but quite expensive

The staff were really friendly and took time to find out what you wanted. The wine wasn't the best I've had although as I was the only one drinking wine I had to have it by the glass maybe a bottle would have been a better quality. The desert named chocolate forest was to die for.

The setting is lovely and the ambience is very nice. The pre-dinner drinks was a nice touch. We had high expectations for the restaurant. We came for a birthday dinner after hearing lots of good things about the food. However, the food was not good value for money nor of the quality I expected for the venue. Reading the reviews...

I'd not been since the restaurant changed to Hartnett Holder & Co and loved the decor and look and feel. On a sunny winter's day it felt warm and cosy. Staff were all excellent and very helpful as you would expect. The lunch menu is fantastic value for money and while there are only three options, I didn't feel restricted... More

Took my wife for dinner recently and had a very nice evening. The setting and service/staff are excellent and so very helpful with the menu. Sadly the food didn't quite match which was a real disappointment - the pizette while nice was very heavy on the taleggio and hardly a 'light bite' as described. The Anolini which sounded lovely and... More

Good food. Particularly the ice cream (chocolate in particular). The chips were also very good. Sirloin was decent. The staff could have been more welcoming and a bit better throughout the meal in my opinion. Although the main waiter was good and polite. 4.5 stars would be more appropriate,but I am unable to give 1/2 stars on here. Therefore I... More

See my review under the title of the hotel, Lime Wood, but briefly the food is wonderful, with a slight but not overpowering italian bias.

A friend treated me to dinner for my Birthday. I arrived first and was told that my friend was waiting for me in the bar. Wrong. He hadn't arrived, so I found a table and asked for a gin. I was told they had Gordon's, Tanqueray or Hendricks, so chose Tanqueray. When my friend arrived he was given a bar... More

We enjoyed an outstanding evening at HH & Co to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday. From the perfect surroundings of Lime Wood at Christmas, to the impeccable service of every staff member from the moment you step through the door, to the beautiful food, this was a memorable evening and we'll worth every penny of the price.

The set price menu proved excellent value. I had reallly fresh, delicious hake with fennel. Our guests were also happy with their choices. Wine is not cheap, but there are well priced New world choices. Avoid the wine suggestions on the menu for the set price lunch. Rather, ask for the main wine list and don't be put off by... More
