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

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...

Firstly this restaurant is part of the Sharnbrook hotel, it may be a separate restaurant as such but it is very much the restaurant/bar and catering for the hotel. Having said that, the food is great. Very authentic Italian flavour, great pizza and good risottos. I think it's a bit pricey for what you get - only slightly. If it... More

After my visit here last week, I decided to join Trip Advisor as I want to be able to recommend this place to as many people as I can! My partner and I came in for dinner around 7 o'clock and the restaurant started off quite quiet. We were greeted by a lovely young lady (although all the staff were... More

We had a fantastic petrolhead inspired day. There were so many people in the complex, all having Sunday lunch and watching the GP or celebrating birthdays. The food was superb, piping hot and the service fantastic.

I have been to The Sharnbrook numerous times always friendly, and great food at good prices, highly recommended, location is easy to find beside the A6, (don't be put off you don't hear it) but outside of village. I have visited for both business and on a personal basis, the staff are always professional and helpful nothing is too much... More
