The chef certainly knows how to put the finest ingredients together to make outstanding meals, including all the accompanying vegetables and potatoes.

2 dinner menus on offer, both excellent. Indulgence menu offers extra special choice. If venison on, thoroughly recommend. Shin beef on the 1881 menu was melt in the mouth. Lovely.

A good selection of dishes to suit all tastes, well presented and always hot. The breakfasts with a wide choice from fish dishes to the traditional English really set you up for the day. The evening meal well balanced with interesting combinations . Have eaten previously in Michelin starred restaurant and felt this standard should be awarded here.

My partner and I could not fault any of the meals and we both commented how they matched 5 star restaurants we have enjoyed elsewhere.

The food in the 1881 was a great experience and the quality of the dishes met expectations. The 3 courses were some of the best we have eaten. The food was presented well and the service was also exceptional without being obtrusive. The restaurant for the 1881 is in Wrea Head Hall. Leading up to dinner there is a formal... More
