We visited here for Sunday lunch with our 2 children. The food was very nice and the surrounding were equally as nice, with stunning views. I cant agree with recent reviews, the staff were very attentive and polite. My only concern was that although the children were made to feel welcome, there was no child portions. We do not necessarily... More

My husband and I visited the Cottage in the Woods in Malvern for lunch on Sunday 25 September. Whilst the food was perfectly acceptable, there were other things that were not perfectly acceptable, namely: My husband, who is in his 80s and clearly frail, had a severe and sustained coughing fit, brought on by food going down the wrong way....

The food at dinner was OK and if the pretensions and prices of the restaurant were lower I would say it was good. Promises fine dining but delivers gastro pub. The breakfast was very good and I would have like to have eaten on the terrace outside to enjoy the gorgeous view and beautiful morning but the staff seemed shocked... More

Stayed in the hotel for 4 nights. We had booked a table in the restaurant for all 4 evenings but after 2 meals we cancelled the bookings. The menu is very limited and on the 2nd evening my main course was burnt and very dry. The breakfast is very good though.

From the start this promised to be a great evening. The welcome and service was first class. We sat in the comfortable lounge with our G&Ts and the menu. Such a difficult decision as the choices were varied. When we were taken into the dining room we were pleased we had a table with a view and our starters soon... More

I have just returned from a pleasant lunch in this well-appointed restaurant high in the Hills above the Severn Valley. The dining room is mercifully quiet for those of us oldsters who need to chat via our hearing aids. Access for our wheel-chair user proved easy except that a toilet visit may involve daunting stairs and corridors. Go before you... More
