An update to my previous review. We've been again to the Stamford Gate. My partner had the Prawn Cocktail, whilst I devoured the Leek and Potato soup, which I can honestly say is as good as I've ever tasted. We both followed this up with Roast Beef and were not disappointed. Yorkshire puddings done to perfection, how they get them... More

We'd booked a table which was just as well as very busy, attended to by pleasant staff without having to wait, good choice of food and drinks, food came out in good time, no complaints with food or service at all... Disappointed with ladies toilet facilities in bar area... Very poor for such a lovely place.

Firstly the food was okay, but the room was vile, there was a stain on one of the beds, then I smelt a very pungent smell and to top it off there were a lot of cracks in the roof!

Went here today for Sunday lunch,arrived around 4 ,I had been really looking forward to a traditional roast dinner. My daughter and I have been here on numerous occasions and ,to be fair,have enjoyed our dining experience. However,I was disappointed with my 'sunday roast' today. The lamb was nice,but a little fatty and stringy,the vegetables were soggy and looked like... More

This was a family vista. There was a family party locally and four of us needed somewhere to stay overnight. Unfortunately we couldn't get double rooms as they were all booked up so we booked 2 x twin rooms. There is no facility to book on line -something I think the owners may want to rectify - so emailed with... More

I have visited the Stamford for food and drinks a few times this year and it's always consistently good. The staff are attentive, the menu is good, the atmosphere is lovely and the food is beautiful. The bar can get very busy later on at weekends and it's advisable to book a table if eating.

A good choice on the menu and the staff were very willing to change chips and peas to potato and vegetables for me. One of the best steak and ale pies I have ever eaten!

Visited the Stamford Gate for dinner on what turned out to be an unexpectedly busy Wednesday evening for the team. A large party had arrived immediately before us, but the service was great and we were well looked after. We have always found the food to be good, but after not visiting for a while, this time the food was... More
