We went to the refurbished cafe/bar in the spa. The food was good, as was the service. What was off-putting were the 8 people in their 'robes' (aka dressing gowns). I don't know of any other cafe or bar, that is open to the public, where guests are allowed in wearing this sort of clothing. I appreciate that people having treatments would like to have lunch without getting changed, as happens in other spas. What is different here, is that Hartwell Spa cafe is a public area.
Shame, because the rest of Hartwell House is lovely.
