I wanted to have a small, but special family celebration lunch for my 60th birthday, and from the moment I called the hotel, everything was made very easy, from arranging a small reception room, to agreeing a very reasonable price to hire a private dining area. We were welcomed warmly, and shown to The Leather Room, where we were served our champagne by the log fire, and then taken to the Stuart Room for our meal. Both rooms provided a very grand, but warm backdrop, setting the scene for a very special day. There was a wedding in the hotel at the same time, but this was not at all intrusive, as our staff member very discreetly ensured that the door was closed, so that no noise infiltrated our little party and the two events remained separate.
Food and wines were excellent, with a good menu choice, and staff were quietly attentive, anticipating and meeting our requests pleasantly and efficiently.
During a very convivial meal, we all enjoyed the occasional glimpses we had of the peacocks in the grounds outside, and it is testament to the overall atmosphere of the day that no-one was in a hurry to leave!
Highly recommended for a very memorable and special celebration venue.
