All the food was delicious. The breakfasts were lovely and as good as any we have had at any other hotel. The evening meal was perfect - tasty, cooked to perfection and the waiting staff were friendly, knowledgeable and professional.
Booking online didn’t work well firstly because the booking website showed no availability between 6.30 and 8pm yet the restaurant wasn’t at all busy. Then when we arrived they weren’t expecting us. However, It was no problem and we were given a lovely table with a view. The service and food were excellent.
Excellent food - a small menu choice, but every dish we chose was delicious and beautifully presented. I would thoroughly recommend the Chocolate bar pudding, and the Cacklebean egg starter. Extensive wine list too. Speed of service was just right, and we were left to pour our own wine, which I much prefer. Only slight niggle was the proximity to the next table - would have been nice not to be quite so close.
A really great dining experience with a spectacular view.
A splendid balance of quality, service and ambience 'we will be back' Tony & Kay Dowdeswell
great food, service poor
Attentive staff both in the bar and restaurant. Delicious food from starters to cheese. Incredible atmosphere (for a Wednesday). Will return.
The whole experience was delightful from the view to the excellent food and friendly team .
Lovely food, great atmosphere and a lovely personal touch for our anniversary! thank you! 😁
The food was really good and delicate. The restaurant is located in a wonderful area. I recommend
Had an absolutely lovely meal at cottage in the wood, food and wine were excellent, restaurant was decorated beautifully.
Excellent and imaginative menu Beautiful decor with subtle and calming colours and good textiles Lovely position Teething problems with key and bathroom plug Bedrooms too near to staff door Professional but friendly staff We loved our short visit and want to return
The afternoon tea was Devine! It was also nice and relaxed, staff were attentive and nothing too much trouble thank you!
Food was absolutely sublime Setting beautiful Staff had no charisma .. almost made to feel we weren’t good enough to be there Especially the chap on reception.. no smile Just arrogant- there was no one there who looked like they were in charge- no personality there to make the place shine like it should be. Crumbs on floor under our table which obviously wasn’t cleaned from lunch Toilets messy I spent £140 for two of us for my husbands birthday , first visit . I expect to be made to feel welcome.... Such a shame , I can honestly say that whoever your chefs are , they are certainly doing there jobs! Perfect food in fact beautiful Shame about the rest. For somewhere like this it should be better... someone needs to whip this place into shape. Greatly disappointing
meal was lovely, and service was excellent.
The only thing I’d have changed was where we were sat. As it was an anniversary dinner and I’d booked well in advance I’d have liked the best possible table with a view. Having never been before I didn’t know to request a table with a view. X
Such an amazing scenery and location of this charming place. Our family absolutely loved to have Sunday lunch. The views were incredible, food was delicious and the service was at the high standards. 5*
We enjoyed our meal ,we found the standard of service to be excellent. The staff serving us were prompt and attentive. The staff were very helpful and welcoming. The surroundings were comfortable with great views of the Malvern hills from the resturant. The food was very tasty and of good quality it was a real treat. My partner said the larger he had was perfect. We would definately come again in the future. We would love to stay at the hotel when we next visit Malvern.
Meat was over cooked and service slow
The food was pretty good and the setting was really nice but the service was very slow (although friendly). I had the impression that they were understaffed but the restaurant wasn't hugely busy. Certainly an area for improvement.
Well near a perfect visit, no Crème de Menthe! Thank you, I haven't been for ten years but as lovely as ever,
lovely hotel and location food and service excellent
Service is a bit slow, although the wait staff were pleasant and friendly. We didn't get offered a wine list or asked if we'd like something to drink before taking our order. We did get homemade bread served, but had to ask for water. Starters, dinner, and dessert was first class and nicely presented. Small portions, but that is usual for fine cuisine and was plenty enough for us. After dinner, a bit slow to bring the bill and we had to go to reception to pay...they seemed surprised that we weren't staying at the hotel. I guess most people eating at the restaurant are staying at the hotel so don't need to receive and pay their dinner bill before leaving. I would still recommend based on the quality of food, but don't go if you're in a hurry!
The most beautiful place to eat and drink in Malvern (and probably Worcestershire!). The food is top-notch with a dining experience that we always look forward to. The service is exceptional and we enjoy every minute we are there. Thank you team!
Beautiful food in beautiful surroundings. We have already booked to come back and try your Sunday lunch!
