Best meal we have had in a long time and excellent customer service. Will definitely be returning. We enjoyed a 3 course meal and drinks. I had the pulled pork spring rolls which were actually the best spring rolls I have ever tasted. They came with a gorgeous orange sauce. My husband had the black pudding starter which he said...

Stayed in the hotel as a conference guest and enjoyed consistently excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner here. Possibly the finest fillet steak I've eaten anywhere in the world. Highly attentive, polite and friendly staff too. Highly recommended.

We visited just before Christmas and the place was very busy. Service however was not compromised, nor was the quality and presentation. For just under £25 we all enjoyed a superb three course meal with coffee and mince pies served afterwards in the lounge area. The food was exceptional and of the highest quality, and three hours passed in no... More

A very nice venue to meet clients and associates for coffee and lunch. I've taken several of my clients here. Food very good, coffee equally as nice, and service good too. Happy to recommend.

Visited on a quiet Tuesday evening with friends. Staff friendly and helpful. Food quality didn't live up to recommendations I'd been given to be honest. Friends eating the lamb said it was superb and the fish was good too. However Burgers were disappointing and the ravioli was a little over cooked. Overall food was okay but unlikely to visit again.... More

Eaten here a few times and always a great meal with friendly and relaxed service. A large family meal and we had our own area set up ready for our family & friends. A great welcome with drinks and canape served before our meal. Food was excellent and all dishes served together and hot and perfectly seasoned - Really impressed... More

The restaurant which is located in the Astley Bank Hotel is wonderfully light and airy and has delightful views of the superb gardens. There is a very good Table d'Hote menu for £26.50 and a more extensive A la Carte menu for the special occasion. The Italian style bread was light and delicious and then I had the Chicken Tikka...

Have just returned from enjoying one of the best meals I have ever had - and I've eaten around the world! My husband chose Astley Bank for us to celebrate our Diamond Wedding Day (55 Years) because many years ago he had business meetings there.The setting is elegant and very calm. The menu is varied and the staff are pleasant... More
