We didn't stay but had a dinner to mark 80th birthday of a family member at the end of June. I hadnt been to the venue before and was very impressed by the grounds, entrance all and most of all by the lovely room that we were allocated due to the size of our party (approx 18 diners)
However on reflection given the size of the bill at the end of the evening (four figure sum) there was no evidence of the management taking any interest in our group. Even though it was a family dinner they had set 2 separate tables which we had to ask to be moved together. No problem once we asked.
The quality of food varied. Some starters (chowder) were luke warm and some of the meat tough. Nobody came to ask how things were going. A birthday cake (which we had ordered in advance) was served with a knife to cut it, so we had to go find the waiters to ask for one. The cake it has to be said was amazing!
All during the meal in this beautiful room we were treated to dreadful piped music through speakers. There was a lovely reception area as part of the room which we didnt know about until we sat down to dinner (pre dinner drinks could have been held there rather than at the crowded bar).
All in all disappointing given the expensive night and the potential of the venue. A personal input from the management would have made all the difference.
