“decent food with decadent service to top it up.....”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Food was 'decent', not amazing but okayish... the service? I'd expect more service from pizza hut.. Sincerely don't bother as there are other more dedicated restaurants around at less money and much much better surroundings. sorry paparazzi, def a no go for me. the staff should be told to care a little more about us paying patrons than to talk amongst them selves, and then to seem bothered when we 'ask' for attention.

“The "half" am hour restaurant!”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Went there with my GF, and had the utmost awful experience. The restaurant wasn't busy at all, just 4 individual people all sat at separate tables (probably business people staying at the hotel) so no need for excuses when it came to ordering. It took the waiter over half an hour to take our order, half an hour to clear our plates and wait for it.... More than half an hour to get our main course and yes you guessed it at least half an hour to clear the dishes. Not that the waiter was anywhere to be seen at all times. Any way 30!! Minutes later we caught a glimpse of the 'manager' and asked if we could see the dessert menu, only to be told: "yes in a moment!!" we ordered dessert, asked for the bill paid and left. How this place gets good reviews is beyond me... Then again how difficult is it to open up an email account and leave your own positive reviews...

“A great family celebration”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

11 of us booked for Sunday lunch. The service was perfect, the waiters were attentive but not overbearing. There was a good selection of food which was nicely presented and there were plenty of vegetables which were cooked to perfection.

“Christmas Dinner Disaster - 2011”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

This was motivated purely greedy by greed with no attention to quality. Never again. This was the worst possible Christmas day dinner. As a teacher I have had many school christmas dinners in school canteens where the seating was more suitable, the dinners served on time; with christmas music playing in the background. At the Harefield Manor we spent hours waiting before giving up ( yes - no dinner ) the tables were crammed together with no space for movement and the background music was everyday popular tunes. I have never seen so many people in such a small venue. There were three sittings! What were they thinking?
