We initially booked the Orangery but changed to the Brasserie for our evening meal and to the Orangery for breakfast. The staff were proficient, pleasant and helpful.

What a fantastic dining experience and it can be as expensive or as reasonably priced as you wish. They have a set meal £20 for 2 courses and £28 for 3. Do try it out .

My husband and i had lunch at The Brasserie today. The food was well presented and very tasty. The Staff were all young, very well trained and most polite and attentive. The Brasserie has lovely views of the well maintained gardens and across the towards the Golf Course and the Football Training Ground - and then a background of woodland.

We called in here for a late breakfast and was not disappointed. Although it is pricey, the food and service were excellent and the balcony was nice to sit outside if warm enough.

My partner and I walked down from the hotel for a drink early on in the afternoon. The young lads behind the bar seemed busy we did hear them say that they were having to sort the restaurant out as well as the bar. We did feel quite sorry for them with the abuse they were having to put up... More
