Mussels swordfish, rissoto Camembert all starters all Devine-mains swordfish, raveoli and pappardelle amazing flavours fresh pasta layering in the seasoning just gorgeous-don't think about it just book and see for yourselves-it is worth every penny.

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!

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

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
