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!
