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

We were looking for somewhere to eat. Telephoned to book, got an answerphone message which asked us to leave a number and they would call back. We are still waiting for the call back. We ended up going to the Thai Rama Iv as they could be bothered. Boy are we glad we did.

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

We chose the venue for its lovely position and views, and also the interesting menu and good reviews.

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.
