Lovely restaurant in a beautiful location

We had tried to get into the restaurant for dinner but it was fully booked. The 10 of us chose to have a late lunch at 4.00pm instead on a beautiful sunny day outside.Staff were really friendly and efficient and the food was lovely. Great selection of fresh fish. Highly recommended

My husband and I are currently at the Lodge at Ashford for a two night stay. We dined last night at Wildes at the Lodge (see separate review). Today after breakfast we went for a walk to the Castle to visit the gardens. After a nice long walk, at lunchtime we decided to try Cullens at The Cottage on the... More

The quality and preparation of the food was excellent. The service was questionable. In a casual setting, our meal took over three hours to complete. The bar service was poor. They had no olives for a martini. Black olives were offered and refused. This was a first! Our waitress tried hard but the support was non-existent. The restaurant was quite... More

This review is strictly for the Dungeon, and trip advisor would not give it a separate heading. During our stay at Ashford, we opted for dinner in the dungeon. The atmosphere was fantastic, the service superb, and the food delicious. We all enjoyed our meals and we were able to enjoy our welcome drinks to the castle during this meal.... More

We stopped in for lunch but only had scones and clotted cream - scones were freshly baked and cream was from Devon - we are completely addicted and don't know what to do back in the states without our afternoon scones. Service outstanding and friendly.

I couldn't fault the food. It arrived quickly although we were also given an assortment of artisan breads and dips to whet our appetites while we waited. The service was excellent and very attentive. It's above your average restaurant prices but worth every penny.
