A wide selection of individually priced brasserie style dishes, from a simple sandwich to a full meal. An excellent choice of wholesome, well-cooked food which is served from 12 noon until 10pm every day. Situated on the ground floor of the main house adjacent to the reception hall. A flexible dining option in a comfortable and welcoming environment.

The Brasserie is the less formal of the two restaurants, but the staff make no exceptions and were exemplary in their service and attitude. The Maître d' making sure everything was perfect.

it was our 25th Wedding anniversary and they really were superbly accommodating, especially as one of our guests has a sight issue with some foods.

The Menu choice was a little limited, but saying that had a reasonable choice of Fish, Seafood, Meat and Vegetarian dishes. The wine list was perfectly acceptable and reasonable priced wines could be purchased.

I'd would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for that special occasion. That being said, we also plan to try a lunch some point soon!

First visit, unlikely to be last. Menu very enticing and interesting so why I ordered mushroom soup and burger and chips is a mystery. That said it was lovely. Unobtrusive and efficient service. Thank you.

What an exceptional establishment to celebrate a special occasion . Everything was superb. The staff could not have treated us any better,they are a credit to the hotel. Food was scrumptious. We had our coffees in the Great Hall...amazing. We feel very lucky to have such an amazing hotel so close to home and hope to return many times in the future. Thank you Ellenborough Park for making our son's 30th Birthday so special.

Elegant, comfortable with exquisite food. Despite the elaborate surroundings, one is made to feel at ease and welcome.

This review encompasses the Beaufort dining room rather than the brasserie at Ellenborough Park. From the moment we arrived the staff were, without exception, attentive and friendly. Service was just right; the right balance between formal and informal and the pace of the meal was well judged. The real star was the food which is exceptional; the dishes show flair and expertise and there is a good range on the menu. Particularly impressive was the chance to take coffee and petits fours in the Great Hall afterwards; most relaxing. We never felt rushed or hurried. The restaurant deserves to do really well.
