We have visited here many times as a couple and as a family, the kids love the pizzas and pasta dishes, the Sunday roasts are also really nice, plenty of parking

The Sharnbrook Hotel was the venue for my "significant" birthday party with about 60 guests including kids. Right from the beginning of the organising we felt we were in safe hands. On the night itself everyone commented on the quality and choice of the food on the buffet. We had a celiac as a guest who was no trouble for... More

This was my second visit on business at the Sharnbrook hotel after a couple of years. I was very impressed on my first visit but was pleasantly surprised on this visit by the service and food quality. The hotel has since expanded and even got better, which is not always the case. I would highly recommend this hotel and actually... More

The restaurant is part of the Sharnbrook hotel which itself is a little disappointing. It shares the utilitarian design of the building and is therefore to a low standard and offers little in the way of comforts. The waitress was friendly and helpful and the food was hot and arrived in a reasonable amount of time but, when it came,... More

My client suggested that I should attend a function as his guest, so along a went. The function was organised by the Rotary Club and was superbly run. I was very impressed by the way the stall were so well organised and very professional. The serving of the meal was about as perfect as it could, with a 'director of... More

Took my partner to VesuviO for our 10 year anniversary, food and service was excellent. The steak I ordered was cooked to perfection. We've been before and will be coming back again.

The food and service here were fine, what is letting it down is the restaurant area. It looks tired and could really do with freshening up. The rest of the hotel is lovely and we will eat here again, it's good, but could be very good.

Had a table for 15 for lunch. Always great food at Vesuvios, and the staff are very friendly too. The children like it there as there's lots of space ... And wifi for those children who's iPads are connected to their arms! Anyway. It's a family favourite for us. Either for a meal for 2 or the whole mob, always... More

Once again another brilliant evening in the Pompeii suite, myself and my husband presented a talk on our Canadian honeymoon a trip of a lifetime. The room was warm comfortable and fantastically set out, all the equipment you need for a presentation. Food as usual was exceptional as we have never had a bad meal there yet. The staff were...
