Luckily managed to bag a window seat and watched the sunset whilst eating which was lovely. The food was very decent but a little overpriced most likely due to the setting. Staff were helpful and friendly. Prosecco only served by the bottle which was disappointing as I didn't want to drink a full bottle to myself. Also no specials on... More

The hotel is in a spectacular location which puts the visitor in the right frame of mind and things got better. We chose the seafood rendezvous which was wonderful, and the white wine which accompanied it was excellent, the desserts which followed were also of a high standard. The service from the initial welcome to the final goodbye was immaculate.The... More

I ordered the pate and, whilst there was nothing wrong with it at all, it wasn't to my taste. The lady who served me gave me my bill and said that since I hadn't enjoyed it, she hadn't charged me for it. Unexpected and unprompted but extremely welcome. Many thanks - I shall tell everyone about this. Excellent service.

After reading a number of the glowing reviews on TA, we were looking forward to being able to at this restaurant a number of times as part of a 4 day stay at the hotel. Unfortunately, the quality and execution of the food during dinner service was below what we expected. For example; i) poorly cooked scallops ii) overcooked duck... More

It was OK - nothing special but was convenient and they were very good about finding us a table at a busy time.

Dinner at the Holly Tree was a little on the pricey side but we still enjoyed our meal. The view through the full glass windows in the dining room was lovely and created a very relaxed dining experience.

We stayed here at the hotel lodges for the week eating in the restaurant several times. The food was always of a high quality and fresh and always served with a smile from the friendly staff. All food was well priced and of a very high quality. Recommend the seafood platter.
