My husband and I dined here as part of a Dinner Bed and Breakfast offer. We had a wonderful dinner - the food tasted sublime - fabulous ingredients, prepared imaginatively and cooked to perfection. Breakfast was also very good and set us up very well for the rest of the day. The service was very good, and personal to - I showed up with a stinking cold that had just come on, and was promptly offered a hot lemon and honey drink within a minute of arriving. We each had a G&T before dinner, and my husband had a glass of Malbec with dinner that he enjoyed very much. We definitely anticipate a repeat visit.

Excellent food and wine, tasty and good proportions. Lovely atmosphere and excellent service. Chairs too low for the tables which made it difficult to relax when eating, but otherwise a great experience.

Wonderful views, charming service, food very good although i was a little disappointed with the caesar salad in comparison to my friend’s choice of fish and chips which was outstanding. Will come again and looking forward to the planned orangery extension!

Cannot comment on value for money as we had the afternoon tea as a present. We did really enjoy the whole experience - friendly staff, unlimited coffee (or it could be tea ) and quality food and a great view.

Delicious afternoon tea enjoyed with a stunning view. Home made cakes and sandwiches were fresh and tasty. Staff were attentive and friendly but not intrusive. My friend thoroughly enjoyed her birthday treat, thank you.

The food was good although the lunch menu was limited. Only one person serving for the bar, restaurant & payments so we had to ask: for menus, to take orders, to take/return coats & to go through to restaurant, plus lots of little mistakes. Disappointed there was no skate as we were the first in for lunch & it took over 15 minutes to tell us after ordering.

Service was good and friendly, but slow. The broccoli was undercooked! There were not many diners, weekday lunch, so atmosphere score above is low!

Food was lovely. Really interesting combinations of ingredients and flavours. Only negative was that as a non meat eater there was less choice of fish/vegetarian meals. Staff were friendly and attentive but didn’t overdo it as sometimes is the case.

Unfortunate that only 2 other diners in the restaurant when we were there. That impacts badly on atmosphere. The food was potentially interesting but a) it was not piping hot when it arrived at table, b) the fish & chips for £19 was poor VFM - a smallish piece of fish. A small glass of Sauvignon blanc priced at £6.30 seems steep. The service was polite and helpful but the waiter seemed a little unsure of how to react to our criticisms. I appreciated the new (ish) refurbishment - it is much more 21st century than previously.

The pig's cheek first course was so small as to be little more than a single canape.The venison,although perfectly cooked, should always be served as three or five slices - never two.

The menu is pretentious and could hardly be described as British cuisine. Too many 'bitty' ingredients, which did not contribute to the overall taste or appearance of the dishes, and the portions were very small, both for starters and main courses (e.g. the skate, the pigeon and the violet potato as starters, the venison as main). Steak was nothing special, but chosen as potentially a decent size meal.

Although we have eaten at 1919 many times, this was first Sunday lunch. My husband was delighted that the food is just as good as your midweek a la carte offerings. Super.
