I visited the Garden Restaurant after reading a review from YourThurrock. In terms of food the review was spot on we could not find one fault with the food. It is clear to see why 2 rosettes where given and is clear big things can be achieved in this restaurant. However, this is as far as possitives go.....although there was a very pleasant restaurant manager, he seemed to be working alone. We consider our selves to be 'Foodies' and have eaten in many top restaurants and we can only offer our opinion. When we arrived and were seated we were presented with to many choices of menus which we feel is unnecessary for this restaurant as the alacarte menu speaks for its self. I would like to also point that it was apparent that there was a wedding or party of some sort in another room as loud music could be heard from our table and did no favors for the ambience in the Garden restaurant.
An overall beautiful restaurant but seems almost lost and over shadowed by other areas in the hotel as unaware a restaurant even existed within Orsett Hall until seeing the review in YourThurrock.
We would deffinantly return to the restaurant and recommend to our friends and hoping for a busier atmosphere when we return.
