Booked to stay at Ettington park for my partner's birthday. We were delighted as we approached the hotel; it looked exactly as it had on the website - stunning! The staff were all really friendly throughout the stay and our room was nice with a lovely comfy bed.
The only thing that let this place down was their food. We had booked to dine on our first night there and were looking forward to being a little spoiled by the elegant sounding food. Unfortunately this was a big let down. Everything, from the canapes, to the main course, to breakfast the next morning was just not good. The battered haddock, which was supposed to be a tempura batter, was thick and greasy. The main course of scallops was just awful with none of the food tasting nice together and the scallops themselves wrapped in a thick piece of greasy bacon. Then there was supposedly a pudding of Mille Feuille, which was just 3 pieces of chocolate stacked on a mousse, not quite a mille feuille! With a cold breakfast the following morning and a slop of scrambled eggs that contained more milk than egg, we concluded the meal had not been a one off. The food here just was not good.
