Reviewed January 26, 2014

I found the food to be excellent but the drinks expensive especially wine by the glass!! This could and in my case make it unlikely that I would visit again. Service is good but staff not too attentive at large functions - my table of 10 was served all except for me some of my fellow diners had finished before I got my meal,

The Brickwall hotel is perfect if you need a quiet weekend away. It's surrounded by gorgeous hoses with one confectionary shop close by and a beauty salon and a pub. We was greeted by a friendly smile, everything was explained to us and we were given a short tour or the hotel before being given our room key. We stayed in room number one which is a large room and is very well kept, comfortable king size bed, relaxing bath which also has a shower. you are left with a selection of bath things, shoe polish and other little essentials. tea and biscuits in the room which is handy if you don't fancy sitting downstairs. the lounge has a gorgeous setting and the chairs are comfy to snuggle into and get stuck into a good book. although it was a cold weekend the hotel was warm and heating was put on in our room to make it nice and toasty. We settled into the bar and had a few drinks and played some cards, then poped up to the room for a nap before dinner. Dinner was packed which is always a good sign, there was a couple of celebrations going on which was also nice to see. The tables are lit with a candle and the lights are dimmed if you want them to be. the waitor's and waitresses go out of there way to ensure you have everything you need. you are asked about drinks, offered bread and served a sorbet (we had mango) before your main course. When we first saw the price of the meal we weren't too impressed as we realised it was quite a high class place and worried we wouldn't get enough food for the price however we were very much mistaken! we ordered the chicken stuffed with cheese wrapped in bacon which comes with vegetables and it was absolutely delicious and there was enough that you knew you didn't need any more, it is brought out separately and served freshly infront of you. The vegetables were gorgeous and we then understood the price! We then had desert which again was gorgeous and you couldn't fault any of it or the way it is served to you. Breakfast in the morning was the same, you had a choice of cold breakfast buffet or freshly cooked hot food. Checkout was simple and easy. I will definitely be returning here as it's such a lovely get away! it would be perfect for a small wedding or naming ceremony if you are looking for a location to hold a party. Everyone is helpful and I cannot say that I found any fault on my weekend away!

Room Tip: We had room 1 and loved it!

We stayed at the Brickwall Hotel for 2 nights at the end of December. The room was pleasant and very clean with a lovely view over the village green and a very comfortable bed. The breakfast was excellent as was the service. However, what really made our stay and stood out for us was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Julio and Aldo, in particular, were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Not only are they both very professional but they are able to find time to dedicate to everyone. We really felt at home there.

Yet again, Brickwall excelled itself with a lunch for a gathering of 84 Lions and guests. Aldo and his staff were very efficient and friendly despite having two other large parties for lunch. With regard to an earlier comment about drink prices, this is a hotel restaurant and not a pub and these prices are typical for such an establishment. Only one slight problem, as we were the last table to be served out of ten tables, the main course could have been a bit hotter.

Had a good meal but I needed to take out a bank loan to buy the drinks?
£13.10 FOR A GLASS OF WINE and TWO NON-ALCOHOLIC BEERS.
Friends also only brought one drink each, so who are the people who charge
these prices, do you not know in the end you are the losers, we will not be going
back.
