Pleasant surprise in quiet location

Clean, contemporary decor and spacious restaurant with very few diners on the evening we visited. Food well presented and was a good reflection of the taste and quality of the meal. Very fair pricing too. Would highly recommend dining here, especially if you are staying at the hotel. All in all a... read more

Every time I go to this restaurant inside Astley Bank Hotel there is something different to try on the menu. Last time it was delicious pork cheeks this time it was salmon with crabmeat spring rolls on a bed of noodles. Sometimes the dishes seem a bit too busy and confused - like the chef is in the quarter finals... More

I regularly take clients here for lunch. The food is excellent and reasonably priced, the staff are always very obliging, it has a good menu with seasonal variants, there's never been a problem just turning up without booking. Nothing is too much trouble at all! The setting is lovely and prefect for business meetings. Will continue to recommend without hesitation.

Went for the Sunday dinner menu yesterday, three courses for around £23 per person. The food was exceptional, it's always good but yesterday it surpassed expectation! Service was excellent as usual and as always a lovely clean, calm and welcoming environment. Can't fault it!

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.
