Reviewed July 18, 2012

We ate in the Brasserie last night, and apart from the staff appearing a little tense it was a good experience. I can't fault the food or the service, but as with other places in the area, see my review of the Vine Tree, I think this brasserie is just a little expensive for what it provides.

“Really good”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

I stay in the hotel for business.
Food is really nice, dessert menu is great :)
Unfortunately when it is busy you may have to wait for a long time, ensure you book a table in advance.

“Excellent food and atmosphere, but the recent menu changes aren't for the better”
Reviewed April 16, 2012

One of the highest quality dining experiences in the area, and the dining room has wonderful character.

However, recently they've introduced a very stripped-down menu which offers little choice. With only one version of each of red meat, poultry, fish and vegetarian it makes for a problem evening if your personal taste isn't covered or - as happened to me - you are in the mood for the one thing that is off the menu that night. Particularly when you booked a table for 7:30 and nothing should be "off" at that time unless you've planned your kitchen badly.

Used to be a favourite, but am put off by the limited menu now. Will give it another chance at some point.
