I'll try to review the hotel later if Trip Advisor will let me (the site doesn't seem to like separate reviews of hotel and restaurant), but in brief we thought it good value for the £99 we paid including breakfast. Now for the restaurant. OK, we ate here because we were staying here, and probably now wish we'd eaten elsewhere.... More

Enjoyed a very good dinner, service was attentive and the food quality was very good. The Gin variety was interesting and possibly a tasting of these would entice more people to try the varied options.

This was not our first visit to the restaurant in this hotel and again we were not disappointed. Fabulous food, and excellent service throughout by Ionelia and her team. Good knowledgeable information on an extensive wine list with some reasonably priced. Altogether, a lovely occasion

The Lion and Pheasant has a cosy ambience, lovely pastel grey and wood furnishings, and music playing but not too loud. The service was friendly and efficent, and the menu was supplemented with warm bread accompanied by a delicious homemade herb butter, and then an amuse-bouche of a soupy thing. Our chosen dishes surpassed our expectations - we thought they... More

The food was well prepared, imaginative and well presented. Portion sizes were designed so that three courses were possible. The service was discretely attentive. An excellent meal!

Often pop in here for lunch. Never tried dinner....but lunch is always good - mostly because the service is so attentive. Igor and Ionelia are excellent. Always smiling, attentive and efficient. Nice atmosphere, good beer and wine. Nice menu.

Minor negatives out of the way first! The liver parfait starter is served annoyingly (like many restaurants ) with a mean sized toast or in this case large crisp. There's never enough to finish the parfait. Secondly, the child menu burger was vastly larger than the adult mains! Finally ( and I appreciate that this is a very petty quibble),... More

We went last night for my birthday and were not disappointed. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. I started with the parmeasan mouse and my hubby had the crab and red mullet terrine (pictures below). We had g&ts to start in the bar as they had an impressive list and stuck with wine with our food again great selection... More

We like the Lion dining room. There is lots of space between tables with white tablecloths that together present a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere,an experience that is disappearing in many other locations. The food is very good, we had a three course lunch, joined by friends, and all the courses were not only good but offered something a little different... More
