This is a real gem of a hotel and restaurant. We have visited for breakfast, lunch and dinner and have left feeling refreshed and happy. It is well worth a visit. We have visited their gala evenings on a number of occasions and they are highly entertaining. I couldn't recommend the Belfray enough. A lovely place to dine.

Recently had dinner here with my father and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. My father had three courses and loved each one - the soup of the day, salmon and mashed potatoes as a side and then rice pudding for dessert. I also had the salmon which was delicious. Service was friendly and efficient and cost was reasonable. A pleasant... More

I feel that the restaurant is overpriced compared to the food which is served. The food itself isn't very tasty and would not rush back in a hurry In general the staff are nice friendly and helpful and the wait time is average. I think the decor is quite traditional which does suit the type of venue but could be... More

My family arranged a birthday dinner. The adult menu was excellent and the waitresses advice was perfect. I liked the fact that the children were important and their wishes taken into consideration. No one said it was a birthday meal but they listened and dessert arrived with a sparkler and a rendition of Happy Birthday. What a delightful surprise. We... More
