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.

Booked a table but there was no need as it was empty. The decor is beautiful and it has been tastefully renovated The service was excellent and the food was delicious but definitely somewhere to go as a treat.

We visited on the Sunday between Christmas and New Year and it was very quiet, only three tables occupied and inevitably affected the atmosphere. Our only comment is that the beef needed a little more jus than provided on the plate but enjoyed our lunch. Otherwise happy to visit again.

Meal was excellent so was service, Only slight negative comment was after dinner we went to listen to the jazz but there was nowhere to sit. Other than that brilliant lunch.

Excellent stay and break over the Christmas period. Pre-arrival help was really helpful and friendly, from phone calls to reminder emails. The location is excellent for the area. The rooms were clean and smart. Good showers and bathrooms. The bar area is relaxed and welcoming. The evening dinner was outstandingly good and enjoyable. The intriguing menu delivering amazing amazing plates and tastes. Just a wonderful experience for everyone staying in the booking. A good dinning experience with plenty of space between tables and good service, which was a feature of all interactions with all staff. The whole stay was perfect, without fault honestly. This is the second time I have stayed and will look to continue to visit in the future. - Thank you.

We really enjoyed our Christmas Day meal. The quality of the food was sensational and the service was excellent. The only thing which would have enhanced the experience would have been a complementary drink on arrival. Otherwise, thank you to everyone for a memorable Christmas Dinner.

We had asked for a window table but weren't given one even though one was vacant throughout our stay. I had asked for gravy in a jug, but it was on the plate, fortunately not too much though. My roast beef was a solid block and not slices. Something I'd never encountered before. My companions had asked for no tartare sauce, it came with it although luckily in a jug. The cheese and puddings were good.

We absolutely loved our festive lunch at the beautiful 1919 restaurant at The Cottage in the Wood, Malvern. The staff were welcoming and attentive both in the bar and at the table. The food was absolutely delicious, plentiful and beautifully presented. The setting, with 30 mile views across the Worcestershire countryside, is stunning and unique with tasteful, artistic decor. The Christmas decorations were so pretty. We will definitely be back to enjoy this wonderful venue again.
