“Cornfields Evening Meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

The food is good but they were extremely mean with the food.
Although the portions are small which is the case with fine dining, they charge top whack but skimp on the more expensive ingredients.
Also got ripped of with coffee by the fire after dinner. Coffee for four cost £20 because they gave us some hand made chocolates which we didn't ask for. I

“Very pleasant dining experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012 via mobile

Overall versus a fine dining restaurant this may not be that polished - however, people often forget how much they are willing to pay for hideously poor, monotonous frozen food in chain restaurants especially in London, so based on value alone, this is a great place to eat.

Downsides: wine menu slightly limited and a bit pricey, menu is not adventurous, main dining room isn't as pleasant as the bar area, 3 small roast potatoes with main course was very stingy, veal was not true "veal" as you'd get on the continent

Upsides: far outweigh the downsides - bar area is gorgeous room with lovely open fire, location is so peaceful, service is very polite and friendly, guests are staggered into dining room to allow for very attentive 1-1 service, quality of food was very good, vegetables with main were fantastic in taste and texture, desserts were outstanding, wine choice (lussac st emilion) was a lovely silky smooth & fruity wine

Overall a very pleasant experience, good value (£100 excl service for 3 adults for 3 courses including great wine and aperitifs) and would definitely go back and recommend to others.

“Ok but not what it was!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011

Great location & a good menu choice. We have been going here for over 10 years. However on this most recent visit the food while good was not its usual "top draw!" I also noticed it was creeping up in price; so much so it is on a par with decent London restaurants. That said a chilled/relaxed atmosphere with a real fire. Thus a very pleasant country restaurant .
For those that don't know Cornfields does have bedrooms available, should one not want to drink & drive!
