Went here on my birthday and have been singing it's praises since. Me and my partner went for the day. Had a spa day lunch and asked to look at the menu and that was it. Booked it and arrived later that evening. Massive selection of wine list. And not silly prices. Had a few nibbles on arrival and looked... More

I booked into this restaurant to celebrate my 1st wedding anniversary with my husband whilst we were on holiday. As we walked into the hotel, the view was amazing, we both stood with our mouths open!! The huge window with the infinity pool/pond when the sun was just setting was beautiful. We were taken into the bar area where we... More

While I would rate the food here as very good, the overall impression is that you are paying a lot for a very small portion, slow service - near benign neglect unless you can track someone down. Does not appear as if anyone is responsible for any given table - seems to be a handoff system where you are ignored... More

We were extremely shocked to read how disappointing your service in the restaurant was (you know yourself , having enjoyed New Year with us, that this is absolutely not how we usually operate) and our food and beverage manager is looking into this fully. If you could contact her directly at meeche.hudd@scarlethotel.co.uk she would be ever so grateful, as she... More

Just returned from a few days at this hotel and ate in the restaurant one evening (and breakfast twice) Breakfast was good with a great amount of variety and well sourced. However, we both found dinner to be aesthetically pleasing rather than delicious. An "ox cheek and beef" main dish priced somewhere in the region of £22 was one ox... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I'm glad that you enjoyed breakfast with us, but was saddened to see that there were aspects of your dinner experience that did not live up to your, nor our, expectations, and that you were left feeling a little underwhelmed. We would really like to have a chat with you... More

Disappointed with the lack of choice, though the food we ate was very good. Lots of original ideas & flavours but if you ate there every night it would mean eating the same dishes as only the odd meal was changed each day. Staff friendly if a bit dippy, but in the best possible way

Very stylish restaurant with fabulous views. Additional menu for vegetarians with a good choice. Food beautifully presented and you leave the restaurant feeling well fed but comfortable. Perfect.

The views on the outside terrace is idyllic. We had a fantastic evening and, if it gets a little chilly, they bring you blankets! Food of a high standard and good service

Snuggled under a blanket with a drink, for a spot of stargazing is just the best way to round off an evening of good food and laughter. Thanks for letting us know that you had such a nice night with us - always great to pass on to the team. Please do pop in and see us next time you... More

The Scarlet was recommended to us as a beautiful spot for lunch. We were so glad we took the advice and visited for lunch - it was the highlight of our honeymoon.
