These comments cover 3 meals over three consecutive nights. Overall the food was of an excellent standard. The wonderful smells coming from the food as it was placed on the table highlighted the very good quality of the ingredients used and the way they were tenderly handled when cooked. The stone bass dish was of particular note as was the vegan artichoke dish. The kitchen ensured that the vegan diner was very happy with the inventive choices on offer. The roast garlic and onion soup is certainly good enough to be on the main menu. The restaurant has a really good atmosphere and the service is always polite and attentive. The restaurant is fully deserving of its 2 rosettes

As usual the team went out of their way to make the day special for my friend's birthday. We had a fabulous time and I shall be back to stay later in the summer again. One of my favourite, peaceful places in the world with fine dining and lovely people.

Very good food overall. The starters were excellent; the main course were good; the desserts less so. The date pudding tasted stale. Service very good and the setting lovely.

Amazing! Can not fault the food, service, staff.. anything! It was my boyfriends birthday which I had let them know beforehand and they prepared a card which was on the table when we got there. The staff were amazing & couldn’t have been more attentive & friendly. Can’t wait to go back when we are in the area.

Every course was stunning and obviously took a lot of time a care to prepare and serve. Flavours were wonderful and the meat was so tender!

We were very pleased with the food and drink we had although there was a reduced food menu due to technical difficulties so it was mainly sandwiches but they were delicious anyway! We tried about 5 different cocktails each and every single one was lovely! Staff were amazing, very friendly and accommodating. It was a quiet weekend so at the time we ate we were alone in the restaurant but spoke to a few people in the bar. Love the decor in the hotel overall and would definitely visit again!

I had the Squid to start with, I found it very salty, my husband tried some and agreed it was very salty. My husband had the carrot and orange soup with bread, he enjoyed the soup and loved the bread. We both had the Cheesy Burger, we both found the burger a little dry but, overall the flavours were very nice. The chips were very good. the service was good and the restaurant very nice with lovely views.

We went for Sunday lunch on the 2nd, February and it was brilliant. Negatives out of the way first, there was some refurbishment underway outside and in the bar area, but this is out of season and once complete it will look great. The views from the dining room out towards the Bredon hills and beyond are simply stunning. The food was out of this world. We had pigs cheeks to start and rump of beef as a main and I can’t recommend these dishes highly enough. The beef melted in the mouth. The service was excellent and the staff are all lovely. We will return for Sunday lunch and fancy afternoon tea once the weather improves so we can sit outside and take in the wonderful views.

Thank you for making the birthday lunch for my Mother a lovely experience for her . She loved the hand written birthday card you had on the table ready for our arrival. The waiter who served us was very pleasant and helpful. The atmosphere was friendly and genteel, perfect for my Mother. The food was delicious we all enjoyed our food choices . We would definitely like to return and perhaps sit out in the garden in the summer . Sadly we live in West Wales so we are only in Malvern when we visit my Mother . Thank you again to the lovely waiter and hope to visit in the summer.

Excellent food, particularly the vegetarian dishes. The deserts were beautiful AND delicious, interesting combinations of flavours. Efficient and friendly service. Tasteful restaurant and unbeatable views on Malvern. We will come again soon. Smart venue for a special treat, yet calm and relaxed.
