“NEW YEARS EVE”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

We had booked into the Restaurant for New Years Eve, on booking this my partner was not advised it would be a set menu at £60 per head until we were given the menu in the bar/lounge area. We proceeded to order the first three courses, a lovely bellini was bought to us, i drank two as it was not my partners sort of tipple. We were treated to a great display of table magic and illusion by Rob Chapman , a great addition to any wedding or party.
We were escorted to out table by the waitress, a side annex /conservatory , i commented to my partner it must be quite busy as all the tables in the top room we laid up and had jugs of water on them, eight other people joined us in this annex, off the main restaurant area .
Our first courses arrived these were lovely and well presented, my second course was the soup this was seasoned lovely and had a wonderful celeriac taste. We both went for the Beef Wellington i like mine med/rare but we were not asked how we would like it done, we asked the waitress if we could have a break after the second course as these were coming fast and furious but were told chef has already started them , when it turned up it resembled a Greggs pastie with tender meat which looked like pulled beef inside, not what i knew a Beef Wellington looked like. The sweets were nice and homemade but by this time i was full, went into the lounge for coffee but still the restaurant wasnt full and could not understand why we were not in there. The function room was buzzing with noise obviously with a private party, we went to our room with nothing to do now, dozing off to sleep i heard the count down to new year and the disco music , would of been nice as a staying guest to have some party attmosphe, instead we sat in out own room drinking our own Champagne instead of buying drinks from the hotel bar.

We hadn't been to Sweeney for a little while so decided to treat ourselves to Sunday lunch at the beginning of December. It was every bit as good as we remembered it and although it was very busy with 3 large parties and a full Sunday lunch restaurant we had an excellent meal and great service. The lunch was beautifully cooked and presented with a good choice of both traditional and modern dishes. The hotel is in a lovely parkland setting with wonderful views from the bar, hotel & grounds. We've stayed here in the past and can also recommend the rooms as well as the restaurant.

Room Tip: Rooms at the side & front of the house face the grounds and parkland, room at the back overlooks...

My retirement party was held last night at Sweeney Hall, and it was very much an occasion to remember. Everything went so well, the food was excellent and staff were helpful and efficient. I am so grateful that the evening was such a success.

From the time we contacted Sean to begin arranging our wedding back in the summer of 2013 we received great service. Despite only being a very small and intimate wedding, just us and seven guests made up of immediate family, Sean and the staff were all attentive, helpful and supportive before and on the day. Most of the wedding party stayed at the hotel for the duration and found the accommodation very comfortable. We did have one issue regarding hot water and heating in the first couple of days which was frustrating but it was eventually resolved, apparently a problem with the timer.

The Netherton room we used for the ceremony and the meal afterwards sparkled for us and helped make it feel a really special day for myself and my husband. The evening was spent in good company with good food and drink! Whether you are having a small gathering like ours or a larger event the Sweeney Hall staff know how to look after you. A big thank you to Sean and his team.

This was my second visit to Sweeney hall. on the first the power went out at the start of wedding reception and the team rose to the occassion.

this time there was a large wake being held in the front rooms which unfortunately meant that the hallway was chock full of people & a buffet.

this meant we couldn't have an appertif in the bar and had to go straight through into the dining room.

The service was very good and my only complaint was that my pork was slightly overcooked.

The decor is what you would expect for this style of hotel and I think that the overall quality of the food is very good.

Room Tip: always check if they are having a reception when booking a table as it can get quite crowded!

we have just returned from a lovely wedding day celebration. the exclusive use of the hotel, well laid out rooms and excellent staff made the day extra special. the food and service was excellent, with constant top ups of anything that was required. the only slight issue is that the building is set out with several rooms where people can sometimes be isolated from everyone else although that wasn't a problem for us. we, 4 of us, stayed in the connecting cottage, which was ideal for all our needs. I would definitely recommend a visit. well done Sean and all his staff.
