We chose this place for our 12th anniversary because of the views and good food reviews and were not disappointed. On arrival we were shown to the lounge, asked what drinks we wanted and given menus. We could have sat out on the terrace too. We had requested a window seat and were shown to a large table with floor... More

A return visit (family and a friend) after a lovely family celebration here two years ago. Excellent food from a short and well-chosen Sunday lunch menu - thank you, chef. I'd also like to highlight the work of the young local waiting staff who are a great team, nicely confident, genuinely charming and kind and not pushy - none of... More

As per my note on the hotel itself, the resataunt just miises out on being really good. The view form the dining room is fantastic, so get a window table. The decor is cold and is more appropriate for breakfast than a sophisticated dinner -- no table cloths. Interesting range of food, but some aspects lacked taste and some combinations... More

Had a delightful deluxe afternoon tea at the hotel on a Saturday afternoon. We had the glass of champagne on the terrace overlooking the town of Malvern with stunning views beyond then went inside the restaurant for a wonderful spread. At £25 per head it was good value and they gave us what we couldn't eat to take home (tho... More

A restaurant in an individual, quality hotel - no chain hotel food or pile it high standards. Well thought through menu that includes quality regional products. If that it not enough - the wine list is imaginative, good and provides value at all budget levels. Go!

Excellent food, well prepared and presented. Dinner Menu to suit all tastes and not too extensive. Breakfast was plentiful and varied. Waiting staff very helpful and friendly.

Went away for a weekend break, stayed here, and had dinner in the restaurant. Style a bit dated, cables covered by trunking rather than put into the wall (may seem a bit of a random comment but it's just attention to detail, trying to save some money rather than do it properly), and portions just a little small. Not terrible,... More
