After a long plane ride from Hawaii to London Heathrow, the Grim's Dyke Hotel provided a quiet and historic place in the middle of Harrow Weald to rest and recharge. As tired travelers, we were glad to dine at the Gilbert's Restaurant that is part of the Hotel. For our group of five, we enjoyed excellent service and our food... More

Walked in an a jazz band was playing. I though I was in an episode of tales of the unexpected. Staff were helpful food very average. Smallest Thai fish cakes in the world. 6 chips with steak which was £10 supplement to fixed price. Pretty poor value

Stayed at the hotel with colleagues on a dinner, bed and breakfast rate. Unfortunately the meal here wasn't great but I did go to bed full so that's a bonus I suppose. Staff try hard and are very polite. There was only one minor hiccup with the service and that was that staff couldn't quite work out how to translate... More

We were given a voucher for £80 for this restaurant. Frankly, it was not worth the bother of getting there. A rather dowdy dining room needed a coat of paint, but we had two courses. Goats cheese in filo pastry has too much pastry. My soya sauce duck shreds was over spiced. My wife had a filet of bass, but... More

We visited the restaurant on the 5th of June to celebrate a Golden Wedding anniversary and it was a poor experience. My prawn cocktail arrived with no sauce and very small saver prawns and a poor salad. My main meal of roast beef was also of poor quality - the roast potatoes tasted like they had been re- fried from... More

Have visited the Grims Dyke Hotel many times over the years as it was always a source of old fashioned service and good food however since changing hands (now Best Western) things have slipped. We went on a Sunday evening and had a drink in the bar before eating. The bar was empty and soulless and somehow all the seating... More
