Had two wonderful breakfasts here. Food was fantastic and the room itself was spectacular. Great views as well.

Afternoon tea at Swinton Park was a 10'th Wedding Anniversary celebration for my husband and I..Seeing the place in a book called "afternoon tea" it looked like the loveliest place within a couple hours from our home in Sheffield. My first impression, besides the grandeur of the outside was how lovely the sitting room was, very country manor style with... More

The setting in a castle makes you feel like you're special and a star in a film. The dining room while quite formal had the tables well spaced with plenty of room and intimacy. The selection of items on the menu can suit most tastes. Although vegetarians may disagree. The restaurant features a lot of very high quality local ingredients... More

Excellent food, beautifully cooked and presented but as is usual in such "fine-dining" establishments the portions are not huge. Very attentive service. The dining room is very grand and as a consequence the whispering quotient is high. (ie it is very quiet and one feels compelled to whisper). Coffee and petit-fours in the lounge afterwards rounded off a very nice... More

Being a vegetarian there was hardly any choice for me. I ordered a house salad followed by gnocchi then a dessert at a cost of £58.00. When the food arrived it was probably about four mouthfulls. For the price I would have expected a lot more. The quality was average nothing special so sorry but I don't really have anything... More

The setting for this restaurant is stunning - high ornate ceiling and big windows allowing plenty of light and providing stunning views of the estate. Good varied menu as well as a tasting menu ( with or without wine flight). Food was superb, presented well and tasted fantastic. Have good wine selection to complement the food. Service was fine as... More

My wife and I ate here while staying at the hotel and opted for the 7 course tasting menu with paired wines. The food was lovely as were the wines. The setting is a very grand room. My only complaints would be that the whole place was deathly silent apart from some piped music that repeats a lot. Service wasn't... More

This was our second stay at the hotel and after our last experience at Samuels restaurant we decided to eat here again and we were not disappointed. We had a pre dinner drink in the bar and were served canapés which were fantastic. We opted for the three course classic menu of which there was a good choice and every... More

Delicious food but service is mediocre. We were staying in the hotel and were told to arrive in the bar 30 minutes before our dinner reservation. However, the bar seems to be an afterthought to the rest of the hotel. It is not a bar in which I would wish to spend more time than absolutely necessary. The food was... More

Ate here for dinner and also 2 breakfasts Dinner was ok but the staff were not trained in fine dining and continually forgot our requests aswell as others nearby. Same happened at breakfast Far better food and service elsewhere, reminded of when England was known for food and service far behind its European neighbours. Forntunately many other restaurants in Engalnd... More
