“Not the best atmosphere”

It was ll a bit stuffy, not very relaxing and more focused on their way of doing it than what we as guests really wanted

“Excellent food and good spa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We stayed one night. While the mid afternoon sandwich was very plain, the evening meal and breakfast made the stay. Indeed, although the spa is very good, the hotel is rather tired. The gardens felt like under 2 acres, not the claimed 10, so an afternoon walk round the grounds took only 10 minutes.Go for the food though.

Dinner was crab gnocchi followed by canon of lamb while my wife had goats cheese ( she doesn't normally like it) and guinea fowl. Truly excellent. Wine list is good but it's very expensive: some cheaper choices would have been welcome. The full English the following morning rates as among the best ever: it was just done right. Loads of flavour, all cooked to order, eggs and fried bread cooked perfectly. Service felt a little slow but staff were all very pleasant - perhaps just overworked. As a result the buffet was slow to be refilled, there was no milk on the table and there was a wait for more coffee and sauce.

All in, a quiet country house hotel. Go there for the spa and the food.

“Beware if planning a wedding”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We visited scouting out for a wedding venue so decided to sampled the sandwiches to gauge quality of the food and customer service. The service was poor and the sandwiches were inedible. What made this even more surprising was that they were aware we were potential customers prepared to part with thousands of pounds. Needless to say we returned the brochure after we PAID for the lunch and shared our views with them.......I would avoid at all costs or at least try it for yourself before parting with lots of money !

“Lovely relaxing Sunday lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

After eventually finding this place (it's a bit hidden!), I was warmly welcomed at reception and shown my table. We both chose soup (tomato & red pepper) which was lovely, homemade and superbly thick! I then had the roast lamb - my friend having the beef. Both were well cooked and the trimming complimented the dishes well. Desert was chocolate mouse - delicious!
The average age in the dining room seemed to be 50+ but our fears of a saga holiday experience were not met!
We were left to eat in peace and not rushed at all, a perfect Sunday lunch, thank you!
