My fiancée and I have eaten here on numerous occasions. The service is top notch, the food is excellent and you couldn't find a nice setting than the Great Room, you'll find yourself admiring the ceiling no matter how many times you go.

We treasure our nights out as having three kids you have to move heaven and earth for a night out! So my husband books a romantic meal for two online and tips them off that it's my birthday and gets a £200 gift card in advance to make sure all bets are covered! Table booked for 9 so get there to have to wait 30 minutes for cocktails then have our meal.....I don't order dessert as expect wee cake having watched gentleman at table opposite getting birthday cake, but big mistake nothing arrives except coffee! Very disappointed, but wait for it gets worse, get home only to be abandoned by my husband who spends next half an hour on phone as we were billed £203 which included £30 bottle of wine which we never ordered and he wanted to make sure they didn't get away with it after having let him down so badly over ignoring my birthday! To sum up shame on you Merchant for ruining my special birthday treat and double shame for trying to charge us for bottle of wine we never ordered!!!!!!

Where shall we go where shall we go was the cry: oh The Merchant The Merchant was the reply! Cocktail Bar first for ultimate Gin & Tonic and read and discuss menu. Great value for two and three courses. The Great Room itself is magnificent and never ceases to bore looking around the wonderful ceiling cherubs and chandelier. On to the food which was very good I chose the chicken liver and fois gras parfait with blackberry and apply, beautifully presented, tasted devine and served with lovely slice of toasted brioche. For main it was Corn fed chicken potato rosti and Alsace Veloute. Wonderful marriage of flavours and again presentation was top class. Married with lovely bottle of Pinot Noir and some S Peligrino sparkling, lucky to finish off with Coffee Royale, all great and will be back soon. The staff of course are what one would expect in a hotel restaurant of this caliber.
