We booked for dinner at 7.30pm and arrived early as it was a lovely evening to sit on the terrace. We told the concierge we were booked into the restaurant and were going to the terrace. Waited fifteen minutes and nobody appeared to take our order. Went inside, found a waiter and got the drinks menu. Be there in two... More

Booked for lunch, weather was amazing and so we sat outside on the terrace which had amazing views. Lunch was brilliant in terms of quality, taste and value. Highly recommend.

We dined here for by wife's birthday and had a lovely experience. We've been here before and were impressed then when Stephen Edwards was head chef. Although the head chef has changed a couple of times since then the food, the service, experience and the value remain excellent. The service team were very attentive and helpful and on a particularly... More

The Camellia gives you food that you recognise, cooked just as your grandmother would and presented to make you smile. If you want posh stuff they have another restaurant.

From start to finish my husband and I had a lovely lunch. One can be formally dressed or be in less formal attire. The value for the 2 or 3 course lunch is excellent. Food was beautifully cooked and they provided a special pudding for me(no wheat products). The service was slick, professional and carried out in an non too... More

We have eaten at the Hotels other restaurant (The Pass) so came to Camellia with high expectations. My first impression was that it was a little "twee" but at the same time warm and intimate. The menu did seem rather expensive and whilst excellent was not very "special", something was missing. Now we are perfectly happy with al dente vegetables... More

Love being spoilt here, amazing food, wine and service. Always feel relaxed when we've been here. Always have tea/coffee with home made biscuits and sweets in one of the lovely rooms after dinner with lovely walks after dinner.

I have to be honest here. Now that we can afford this sort of experience without anxiously adding up the cost and blanching at the mark up on the wine, I find I have gone off that very attentive style of service. I liked my summer salad starter best. Mains (lamb) were fine. The orange meringue was awful - soggy... More

Visited today for the first time with my husband for Sunday lunch. I had the pea mousse starter which was delightful, light and fresh tasting and my husband opted for the barbeque pork starter - again very tasty. We both chose roast beef which was a very generous portion with all the trimmings cooked perfectly. Desserts delicious. Our only tiny... More

We stayed at South Lodge for one night and had dinner at Camellia. Between us, we opted for the '64 Degree Egg' and 'Pigeon' to start, followed by the 'Lamb Shoulder' and 'Chicken' for mains, finished with the 'Raspberry' dessert to share. All dishes were delicious, beautifully presented, and expertly cooked. I can certainly attest to their use of locally... More
