“A little bit of the Savoy in rural Warwickshire”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Nailcote Hall is massive - golf course, gym, large reception rooms, meeting rooms and a grand restaurant. The Hall itself is quintessentially English and the restaurant is straight out of the Tudors. Grand fireplaces and vast oak beams. We were having a small works do for the second time around. Started with drinks on the terrace, followed by more drinks in the small bar. The restaurant staff insist that you choose your dishes from the menu in the bar - we were almost physically restrained from leaving when we tried to move to our table. It took rather too long for the waiter to take our order and was it really necessary for him to explain how we would be served our food and by whom? Bit pretentious! The food and service were adequate but not sparkling. I had field mushrooms for starter which weren't especially memorable followed by lamb. Dessert was a raspberry crepe dish which also adequate. In fact the food and service let the whole place down but the venue is so lovely, it achieves a generous 'very good'. Recommended. Look out for the hotel cat who sits on top of the display cabinet - loves to be fussed!

“Afternoon Tea”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

This is a return visit to Nailcote. I celebrated my 50th birthday here a few (!?) years ago with Saturday a la carte lunch, which was amazing and we have eaten here twice since then. Each time was the same: good food, a great ambience and tremendous service. Well done Nailcote staff...
This time, though, we had afternoon tea during a visit to check out the wedding reception marquee. Horrible weather; lashing rain, cold and windy. Then the delights of Nailcote made everything better...
Fantastic interior. Roaring fire. Friendly and efficient staff.
Afternoon tea can be taken either in the bar or in the restaurant. We chose the fabulous restaurant.
Afternoon tea at £10.95 a head comprised two large pots of tea for 5. Delicious finger sandwiches (a mix of brown and white bread with generous amounts of filling) with veggie option for the girls. Yummy chutney in a little pot. A lovely moist brownie, a scone with jam and cream and a cream horn each for the cakes. And a doggie bag to take home!!!
Great value, great venue. If ever you are in Warwickshire then drop in for tea (or lunch). You will not be disappointed.
