The Great Hall restaurant was beautiful, and the food was really excellent. The staff were delightful and delivered a relaxed yet silver-service quality service, and completing our evening with delicious petit fours and coffee in a delightful inglenook was just perfect. We love the Lygon Arms!
My only request for change would be that the Lygon considers whether this fairly formal (and fairly expensive) restaurant is really the place for very small children. On the evening we were there someone's 2-3 year old was squeaking throughout much of the meal and throwing his toys around, which seemed completely at odds with the ambiance that the staff were working so hard to create. Many couples were there for major wedding anniversaries that evening, and a screaming child - always a possibility with the current policy - would have ruined the evening for everyone.
I've nothing against kids, and residents plainly have every right to eat at the Lygon with their families, but it would be great if the hotel would consider either finishing service to children at around 6.30pm or providing a separate area for families to dine in. Maybe one of the lovely inglenook rooms could be used for this. It's not fair to Lygon diners or waiting staff to expect them to compete with this kind of distraction especially during a much-anticipated special occasion.
