The staff at Ellenborough Park is vey kind and friendly. The food at the brasserie was average. I think they try to be a bit foody and miss the mark. There were times with other guests where it felt very "Faulty Towers esq" our meal and service was nice.

Chose to eat in the restaurant on the first night of our stay at the hotel, we were not disappointed. The food was cooked perfectly and very enjoyable. The staff were friendly and the experience was made even better when my girlfriend received complimentary macaroons for her birthday, all presented on a personalised plate.

We brought our daughter here for supper. It was raining hard but thankfully the valet parked our car allowing us to get inside without a walk from the car park. Our food was good. My husband ordered a chicken pie which was very substantial. Plenty of vegetables all perfectly cooked. Service was efficient and patient considering we took so long over the menu. Our daughter ordered a chocolate fondue for pudding and it was excellent. We had the cheeseboard which was good. Its quite expensive but we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

Went to the brasserie at ellenborough park last night with my wife for our 4th wedding anniversary.

We have been here a few times and as usual the service was excellent, staff friendly and welcoming and the food was really good.

We both had the soup of the day - creamed celeriac and then both had the fillet steak.

Then came a nice surprise of some chocolates on a plate with "happy anniversary" written in chocolate.

Then pudding and cheese board with a glass of port to round it all off.

Overall a great night and would recommend to anyone.

Called in to the bar for a night cap whilst staying at the hotel. Wine was £9 per glass and a G&T was £14. Wow, this place is almost as expensive than Dubai. I wouldn't mind but the atmosphere was mediocre and the tables and chairs in the bar area were very uncomfortable. Really struggling to award more than 3 stars and can't recommend the bar for drinks as they are way too expensive.
