We had a party of 10 for a luncheon in 2012 here at the Balmer Lawn, & I have to say it was one of the best experiences of a large luncheon we have come across.
The service was 1st class, along with the Jazz band playing that added a touch of class to the whole occasion.
The food was warm/delicious and on time.... Cutlery/crockery very clean & if you like bread & butter pudding, then this place serves the best in the country as far as I am concerned !
Well done and first class.... Well worth the money and most definately a 4 star standard in the Restaurant side of things.
I would say our only gripe! was there were children on the table behind us that were slightly unruly !! And I say unruly in the sense they were allowed to wander onto our table and watch us eat and play with the curtains/drapes beside our table which was a little offputting..... Yes that is the parents responsibility to keep 'kids' in check, however, maybe the staff or 'maitre di', could be managed in how to approach and talk to the parents/guardians of children who might be 'annoying' to other guests..... Especially as this is a 4 star establishment and it could let itself down if this is allowed to continue too much in the future.
