Went for Mother's Day based on historic reputation and was virtually empty. Service was very disappointing bearing in mind they charge 12.5% service charge (which we didn't pay) Food was very mediocre for the price being charged. Shame because it's a beautiful location and could, and should be, a gold mine. Won't be returning any time soon.

I have to say that I was a little dubious in taking my wife here for her birthday. Some of the reviews were, well, less than encouraging. However, I can say that my wife and I had a very pleasant experience. The food was decent, well presented, and edible! The waitress was very attentive, and kindly took the peppercorn sauce... More

Dear Customer, We are glad that you have enjoyed the atmosphere at our restaurant even on a quiet evening. On behalf of all our staff we would like to thank you for your feedback and commending our cuisine. It also shows that a lot of the reviews are mere exaggeration. Whilst we do keep busy during weekdays we do tend... More

We drove from Worcester on Saturday for a meal with family and friends. We were a little dubious of the choice of restaurant as we had read some of the reviews but, as it had been talked about for a while by our sister and told how much she had wanted to dine at the FP we were happy to... More

No bookings on a Saturday night obviously sends out the wrong message. Our booking was for Saturday evening and they booked it for Sunday evening. We arrived and the restaurant was not even open????? Won't be booking there again ever

This restaurant deserves to be busier! We were the only ones there (admittedly on a rainy Saturday afternoon) which was quite a surprise for a start as it is a very pleasant setting. A fine Georgian house in pleasant grounds. The food was very good and was obviously freshly cooked (rather than just warmed up). Particularly good were the onion... More

Arriving at FP 8pm 1-10-16 our party of 2 couples find the car park had only 4 cars. The exterior was a picture, a beautiful building, was well lit and presenting very well. This was the only decent event of the evening because when we entered we were met by a sullen faced boy A - no greeting, no smile... More

It is much regret that I am writing this review today to express my disappointment and total dissatisfaction with the service we have recently received in this restaurant. I booked a table for my wife and I for 8.00pm Friday 9th September which was to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We arrived at your restaurant at 7.45pm, waited in reception area... More

My first impression was not of a beautiful building, but of fluorescent yellow warning signs telling me NO turning / NO dog walking. How strange that the residents of this tiny village could have annoyed the hotel so much that they are so unwelcoming - maybe they should welcome the turners and the dog walkers so that there are other...

Dear Customer, We appreciate your feedback and would like to respond to some of the points which you mentioned above. Initially when we started we did not have these signs up on the walls. Unfortunately some people started using our premises as a public thoroughfare and there was an incident where one of the cars which belonged to one of... More
