Rather bright lighting and poor acoustics - hard to follow conversation when loud party nearby making a poor atmosphere. The staff appeared to need training and got many basics wrong, including forgetting a starter! The food was generally ordinary, which was disappointing considering the price level.

Sat at a table which gave us a view over the golf course. Staff attentive and helpful. Food was excellent smoked cod loin wrapped in pancetta with chunky chips. Beautifully presented and followed by rhubarb creme brulee. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

The service and food were excellent but earlier in the day we were made of aware of the special Monday to Thursday two courses for £20 offer on the spa advertising TV screen. We ordered our food from the menu provided and when the bill arrived the food was around £35 per head not £20. We raised this and we're... More

A gorgeous restaurant with lovely staff. Ordered pate to start with which came without bread or toast which would have made it amazing but still hit it up with a 5 star review as the steak was amazing.

2 nights dinner in the brasserie. Such a great. Informal atmosphere, but no less attention to detail and service. Excellent menu and the food was superb.

The food here is excellent and certainly worth the money. Lovely setting but as it is attached to the spa people who are on a spa package which includes lunch come in wearing their dressing gowns which makes it a bit uncomfortable for those of us who are fully clothed!

Prices seemed very steep, but maybe that meant the food would be outstanding. Not so! £24 for one of the cheapest (and very average) wines. Starters around £10 and again were... More

However we arrived at 7:00 as had most people as the restaurant was full by 7:30.the music (a acoustic guitarist... More
