Stayed overnight on Sunday 27 November 2016. Booked a table in the Brasserie for 8pm and whilst it was quite busy we were accommodated with a choice of tables. 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

As with all the locations at this hotel, the staff deserve special mention. They happily accommodated a toddler and a member of the group with food allergies. Nothing was too much trouble. The food and the non-alcoholic cocktails were fab.

We visited the Brasserie for a mid-morning brunch on Monday to celebrate my brothers birthday, there was seven of us altogether and only two other tables in at the time we arrived to what we hoped would mean quick service but we soon realised it was quite the opposite. The waitress who took our orders was very polite and was... More

Wanted somewhere new to try and we booked here. booking a table was easy and got the time we wanted. We went there 10 days ago and I'm having difficulty remembering what I actually had to eat which sums up the meal.....totally forgettable! I do remember my pudding though which was baked Alaska but it came reconstructed. The whole point... More

So after checking out and having a great time in the spa and the spa garden we thought why not lets try the Brasserie - and great it was too - lovely seat outside and excellent food served by polite waitress - wish I could remember her name as she was most helpful and very good at her job!

The staff are very friendly - on the Sunday night it was busy but quiet on the Monday. It is a good varied menu and reasonable wine list. The views over the grounds and golf course are excellent although tables at the back might not have as good a view. We had the king scallops and Whitby crab to start... More
