We booked a family meal at the Duke of Cornwall to celebrate my husbands birthday last week. We were offered the use of the Writing Room, situated next to the Restaurant, so that we could celebrate without disturbing any diners and guests in the restaurant. The staff and Restaurant Manageress were very friendly and obliging - we were able to bring decorations etc. to add to the table and the hotel was quite willing for us to use the birthday cake in place of dessert if we wished (we opted to offer the dessert menu as some of our guests enjoyed all three courses PLUS cake). There were ample choices to cater for all tastes in each course and we had a vegetarian and a Gluten Free diner in our group - no problem. The Manageress was able to advise on their choices and went out of her way to check the food was suitable for them. Good traditional service all round - even a grand piano being played in the lobby. The hotel was busy with a large function taking place at the same time but we were still well looked after.
LIving locally we did not stay overnight so can't comment on that aspect of the hotel.
