Nice atmosphere good seasonal menu, feels special.
We arrived as a party of four at 6.45 when the restaurant was almost empty; we were quickly down to our table and our order was taken for cocktails, wine and food. A starter arrived, and I had to ask for the cocktails, which we had with starters. The main course arrived, and I had to ask for the wine. The waiting staff were perfectly pleasant but they were not 'on the ball'. One of us had duck and the quantity was insufficient; two of us had the cottage pie, which was really very good, but did it have to be served in a metal saucepan? we ordered pudding, and the chocolate organs was very tasty, but the quantity was very small indeed. It was my wife's birthday dinner, and it would have ruined the evening by making a fuss about everything, but you really have a number of things to attend to, to make this a restaurant that we would want to go back to.
Had a really lovely Sunday evening with impeccable service
Disappointing as it was a birthday treat for my sister. I felt there was no attention to detail. It wasn’t,t the dainty Afternoon tea I was expecting.
My friend and I came for afternoon tea yesterday. The views are breathtaking and such a peaceful spot is a real find. The cakes and sandwiches were lovely, especially the home made, warm scones. Beautifully presented! We can't wait to come back again.
Very friendly staff. Good choice of food. Chef happy to make an alternative dish for vegetarian. Thank you.
Lovely position overlooking the Malvern hills serving a very generous afternoon tea
Beautiful views from the restaurant. Nice food and good service .
Small choice of starters, albeit tasty. The roast of the day was disappointing, with a few small cold roast potatoes per plate and a small amount of vegetables, including boiled parsnips. Unfortunately we felt that overall the meal was poor value for money.
Fantastic food and scenery. Staff were great and couldn’t have been more helpful. A party of 13 of us visited for a hen do with various dietary requirements which were catered for perfectly
Oh dear. Could not fault the food. Fantastic. But!! It wold be good if the staff were trained to smile and look as though they enjoyed serving you. Just two of the youngest were good. They tried hard and at least smiled. Haphazard ordering of meal with drinks being forgotten and cutlery taken away before we were served main course. Faulty Towers came to mind. Breakfast was a bit of a disaster. Slow unsmiling staff with a very poor selection of fruit and had run out of croissant and told we would have to wait 20 minutes for more to arrive. 4 half pieces of toast arrived before the ordered mushrooms. The toast rack was whisked away without being asked if we would like some more and when we dared asked for another pot of coffee we felt like Oliver asking for more gruel!
Lovely atmosphere and a long time since I’ve been and I love the decor. Thank you
Extremely pleasant experience. Lunch was excellent. Very friendly staff. Not local but when l visit this area again The Cottage Inthe Wood will certainly be on my list to return.
Malvern Trefoil Guild wish to thank all the staff for making our visit to 1919 for afternoon tea for our 75th anniversary so enjoyable. The staff were cheerful, helpful and very attentive to our requirements and dietary needs and nothing was too much trouble to them.
Would have liked bread rolls or something on table before mains arrived. Service was polite, if mot warm. View as beautiful as usual.
Lovely location and very nice sandwiches and cakes. Unfortunately the 3 pots of tea we had were all too weak. They were replaced however but we had to still wait for 30 mins after our booking in time to receive any food.
Overall I feel that the experience was a little disappointing. It was not special, it has been in the past. We sat outside for our pre lunch drink and had to sort the umbrella out as it was flapping. No one brought the menus out. No local ciders. Confusion over wine. Pricey fish and chips and no garnish on fish pie. The beef was lovely but the meal was warm rather than hot. Had to ask for mustard and horseradish. The puddings lacked sophistication the menu promised. There was a big party coming in that evening and it felt that was more important. We enjoyed the fact that we were not rushed and were able to relax and chat after meal.
Lovely food and atmosphere. Excellent service.
The food was stunning. Thank you so much. Will definitely return.
I had the most fantastic meal with my friends on Friday night - please pass on my compliments to the amazing chefs and team who served us. Thank you
This was our first visit to the Cottage in the Wood but certainly won't be our last. The view, the atmosphere and most importantly the food were absolutely sublime. We were very impressed with the dessert section in particular, some of the best we've ever tasted in many years. My only slightly negative comment would be some of the salt levels in the main courses... particularly vegetables. With lovely fresh seasonal produce you don't need it to taste of anything other than what it is. We can't wait to visit again.
An excellent Sunday lunch for 18 of us. Very helpful regarding food for one member of the group with serious allergies. Food and wines delicious.
We were given the champagned afternoon tea as a gift and used it to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had a lovely relaxed afternoon and enjoyed the delicious food and the unhurried atmosphere. The restaurant was quite empty and therefore could have benefitted from more of a buzz had there been more people there but it did mean we had an excellent window table and were able to enjoy the wonderful view
Great food and location
Had Afternoon Tea with Champagne which was Delicious and the views from our seat overlooking the Cotswolds were beautiful. Service was attentive and restaurant setting was excellent. Only a couple of tables occupied but very relaxing atmosphere
