“Terrible food and service - a big disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

We had lunch when staying for a week in one of the lodges in the grounds. As part of the hotel we had high hopes for the food and service – however unfortunately were let down on both. Fish and chips for £12 (lunch) was of the heated up frozen food variety – and the steak pie (also £12 for lunch) was tasteless. Poor quality produce, not seasoned or hot enough – it was worse than school dinners. And very expensive too – which would have been ok had the food or service been adequate. Had the staff come to speak to us or clear our plates we would have complained however the poor and un-attentive service matched the food.

“overpriced and overhyped”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

The food here bears little resemblance to the menu description. The portions are very small, very few vegetables, quite a lot of the food is actually rather tasteless, and a lot of it is clearly pre prepared and then heated up (yes I mean you 'Pork Loin with calvados jus').
If it was not included in the hotel stay, I would not bother - it is not worth the highish price.
