Dinner

The service is excellent as is the food. Everything was just so fresh and tasty, the portions may have been slightly smaller than I would have liked but the taste and presentation made up for that.

I live very close to South Lodge Hotel and decided to celebrate my birthday with dinner at The Camellia restaurant on 18th February. There were four of us dining and we were looked after by Dominic and two other waiting staff. The service was exemplary and would have been impossible to improve. And the food...exceptional! Overall it was, without doubt,... More

We visited The Camellia on 31st January as it had been recommended to us. Sadly our first visit will be our last. As another reviewer has said we also experienced very poor service - no one offered to take our coats, our meals got mixed up, we were told we had to wait over 20 minutes for the cheese trolley...

We went to the Camilla Restaurant, as I was unable to book in to the Pass Restaurant, as this was to celebrate a birthday. I thought that as this would be under the same management all would comes with-in the South Lodge Hotel standard. How disappointing we were with the service side. The food was good but was sadly let... More

Very nice Staff but unfortunately what I chose was not good and very expensive...The velouté was very tasty but the rest of my meal was not pleasant, the worst was the dessert, very dry cheesecake melted cream cheese and in bits! We have been on many occasions to both the Pass and Camelias but will not be going again unless... More

My partner booked this for my birthday, he emailed them to ask whether they could offer anything special for a birthday but they didn't bother to reply. The path from the car park to the hotel is very dark, it needs better lighting. Service was very slow, the drinks took ages to arrive, my 2nd glass of wine didn't arrive... More

I decided to visit this restaurant to experience the food of the Masterchef winner Steven Edwards' and his team. It is so nice to have a local restaurant providing such a high level of dining. I was so pleased to see that children were catered for with a separate menu (which our 8 year old son enjoyed) so we booked... More
