We have just spent a week relaxing in an Executive room in the Hall. The breakfast choice is excellent and very tasty. We ate in both the Brace and Hunters while staying here and although a little pricey the food was good. Though I have to recommend the 3 course Sunday lunch which was delicious and a bargain under £20.... More

Went to the Brace with wife, bro, sister-in-law and niece for dinner on a very hot Sunday evening, certainly hot for these parts. The restaurant is beautifully designed and well located with views of luscious forest from the modern, air-conditioned (thank you!) conservatory where our table was. The menu is well composed with plenty of choice. But satisfaction varied quite... More

Beautiful setting, excellent service and the food is superb.I can honestly say it was the best pork I've ever tasted ! Nice to relax before in the bar with a cocktail.

We stayed in The Keep which is part of the Estate. We ate in the Brace restaurant on our first night and in The Keep on the second. The Brace is a lovely place to dine, the staff are very attentive without being overpowering. Bar prices are very high however.

Having read some fairly negative reviews, wasn't particularly looking forward to eating here. Comments about ambience in the conservatory were pretty accurate, but apart from that had nothing to complain about. Staff were attentive, food was great with generous portions and the wine not overpriced for a hotel of this quality (cheaper than Marriott !) . Back next month but... More

Good menu and nicely presented food. Service was variable depending whether the A or B team are on duty.

We sat in the main restaurant area rather than the conservatory section. We felt this had a little more ambience. Service prompt and all staff very friendly and helpful.

Took advantage of a Yorkshire Coast Radio website offer, which offered a voucher to the value of £70 for only £35. This allowed 2 people a 3 course meal to dine in the Brace restaurant. I thought the restaurant and bar were first class, offering a relaxed atmosphere with views over the gardens. The food and service did not disappoint... More

A group of 6 of us dined in the conservatory on a Thursday evening in May. The room wasn't busy and we transitioned from the Poachers Bar at around 8pm having been served aperitifs with poor quality nibbles (nuts were old and soft and the olives astringent). 5 of our group chose a Whitby crab with cucumber gazpacho stater which...
