“Breakfast very good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Buffet breakfast very good, although personally found the scrambled eggs far too creamy. Evening menu looked good quality.

“Overall I would have called this 'good' rather than very good but that isn't an option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We were staying at Deans Place for two nights. Dinner the first night was somewhat disappointing, with a tasteless ball of dough as the amuse bouche and my guinea fowl was over cooked and the dish over salted. Dinner the second night was much better. We both had lemon sole which was absolutely delicious - and the amuse bouche was a welsh rarebit, which I could have eaten a whole plate of. I hope the first night's meal was a 'blip' because the food in Harcourt's restaurant has always been one of the reasons we return to Dean's place frequently

“Cream tea retreat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We had booked Deans Place for a cream tea as Badgers was closed. When we arrived we were warmly greeted but they had no recollection of my booking. Luckily it is quite a large bar/dining area so they had room for us. I can't fault the service and the cosy traditional lounge surroundings, all very good but I did take a peak at the rooms, which unfortunately to me were a bit like a nursing home and tired looking, hence why we stayed at Wingrove House.

“Loved the food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

The starters were a surprise - smoked haddock chowder for me, tasty & clean....followed by lamb the first night & cod the second & deserts both nights that I normally don't bother with but glad I did as they were super & sweet without being over the top - lovely place!
