The setting for the Falcondale is lovely and we enjoyed sitting in the conservatory, overlooking the garden, before dinner watching the sun setting.

Thank you for taking time out in writing a review, it is greatly appreciated. We have 2 restaurants at the hotel, one of which is smaller than the other. When there are less people booked for dinner we feel its better to use the smaller restaurant so that guests don't feel lost within the bigger. We apologise that you didn't... More

The food is cooked to perfection by the Chef and two further chef's, presented in a most appealing way. Don't try and slim at the restaurant, no hope at all.

The waitering staff were attentive and pleasant but failed to remember to bring the pepper to the table despite the request for a pepper mill . The scallops starter was delicious.

As regular visitors to the restaurant this was our first choice to hold a Christmas get-together. The whole evening was amazing; the food, the wine and the service. Matthew, the manager, was aware that our daughter in law was vegetarian and very discreetly handed her a vegetarian menu. We would like to thank all the staff and wish them and... More

Room beyond reproach. Service above expectation. Food an absolute delight. The starter's are really enjoyable, the main courses are brilliant and assuming you still have room, the sweet table is a gourmet health hazzard.But I defy anyone to resist it health hazzard or not.

Needed somewhere quiet and open all afternoon to meet a friend for lunch along with my 1 year old daughter. Very friendly staff and a great atmosphere. We had a very tasty 3 course lunch then a walk and then back for coffee. No one put any pressure on us to leave. A very enjoyable experience.

The advantage we have as a hotel is that we are open all day, and so we will not ask our lunch guests to leave after lunch. We are so glad that you were able to enjoy the gardens, as well as a wonderful lunch. Thank you very much for your lovely review, we hope to see you again. Diolch,... More
