A very pleasant place to have had lunch

The hotel and spa buildings are very charming and photogenic, you get the feeling of going somewhere special. Inside you get the feeling that you are stepping back in time and so it is strange to find that the place was only built in the previous century. But it definitely does not feel fake or... read more

I contacted the hotel re an upcoming Anniversay booking, I found the staff not very helpful and e-mailed the manager who sent a defensive msg back. Won't be booking.

we have eaten here on numerous occasions, most have been very good, though one meal was ruined by lively children gallivanting around the restaurant being completely ignored by their ignorant parents, in that instance the staff moved us as far away as possible, We find the place quirky, charming, and the food excellent, albeit a little pricey, but if you...

Beautiful setting. The lunch was a gift, much appreciated. Very attentive staff and great eye on detail. Food very good. One small niggle They served us the wrong desert. The desert they served us by mistake was off of the more expensive menu. By way of apology, we were old that they wouldn't charge us the extra !!! All in... More

We could not fault the food - fine dining indeed. The only criticism was the fact that the 'local sparkling wine (£14.50 glass)' offered alongside the French champagne was pricey and disappointing. Being lunchtime and only wanting wine by the glass, the Clarendel was also expensive at £15 per glass, all making a simple but enjoyable lunch expensive at £150.

First visit to the Bailiffscourt restaurant as part of a spa package (birthday treat). The positive aspects of the evening was the delightful welcome we received from the young man who greeted us at the spa. He could not have been nicer - so helpful and charming. The pools are lovely and the treatments were nice too - friendly masseuse.... More

The comedian of a maître d' was rude, unhelpful, aggressive and totally obnoxious. We were really upset. We are not going back there again! My food was awful.

We went to Bailiffscourt for lunch on Friday last week. Hot and sunny so we decided to eat out in the Rose Garden. Went for a fish starter and main course and was not disappointed. Service was good considering that they had some trainee staff working who were being shadowed by more experienced waiters and waitresses. Polite, considerate and as... More

Friendly greeting on arrival and taken to one of a number of individual areas for pre-dinner drinks. Maître D' came to take our order, a delightful Frenchman wearing a kilt which gave rise to much discussion with him - a great way to start an evening. Interesting and comprehensive menu. Bailiffscourt has the atmosphere of an ancient building brought up... More
