Second time of visiting Ravenstone Lodge and Anthony and Claire who were there the last time we visited are still there along with a few new members of staff all who are very friendly and make everyone feel welcome. We had a very nice room (room 7) which overlooked the garden, it was very clean and although the shower was small it was adequate for our needs.
The food we had there was very good although I was disappointed the crab which was on the specials board when we arrived was taken off before our dinner and I was looking forward to that. Also the specials did not change after that for the 2 nights we stayed and I found it difficult to choose something from the specials board or the menu although the chef did make me a beautiful steak which was not on the menu so if no there just ask, you never know. What we did eat was first class. Last year we received a 5% discount on our meals but that did not happen this year so although not cheap it was very tasty and the puddings were just as good.
Anyone who stays here can be sure of good food and friendly service so I would recommend to anyone, in fact I already have.
