My friend and I visited for afternoon as a birthday treat, and what a treat it was! We were surprisingly the only people in the dining room, and we thought that we were going to have an awful time but oh how wrong we were. The setting is beautiful, on the banks of the river over looking a gorgeous garden.... More

I have visited here a couple of times before and have always had a good meal, however, must admit I felt a bit let down on this visit. There was a good selection of foods on the menu but the wait between courses was far too long. The food when it did arrive was beautifully presented and was very tasty.... More

A group of 15 enjoyed Sunday Lunch. Lovely restaurant setting overlooking the river. the food and presentation were excellent but it was disappointing that the main dish was served to everyone before the vegetables were served. It took some time to serve 15 people and would have been better if the first five people had the meat and vegetables served... More

We were a group of 15 and took over the conservatory for Sunday lunch. Nice that we were all round one table, though as it was made up of several tables, some positions were a bit awkward where the table legs met. The starters were served promptly and all looked quite appetizing; my soup was hot but a bit thin... More

We visited this hotel for one night, and stayed here due to its close proximity (around a 20 minute drive) away from the Santa Pod Raceway. We couldn't be more pleased with the hotel, our room (Room 2) was comfortable, clean and had a wonderful view of the River, fountain and swans. Staff were so friendly and welcoming! We ate... More

We had an organised barbeque here with a large group of us from work. The bar was quite small for the numbers we had there and they were not very well informed on wines. I asked for a Prosecco and the barman didn't even know if they served it or not, even though I'd already seen an empty bottle earlier.... More

Went for Mother's Day lunch. Excellent food, lovely setting. I do feel that some of the waiting staff are rather young and in experienced. I feel a more experienced adult on hand would be of great benefit.
