Delightful ambience in the beautifully decorated and furnished restaurant and bar. Attentive friendly service. Delicious food, thoughtfully presented, and reasonably priced. Great place that makes for a special night out.

Wonderful food and excellent service. The restaurant has adapted really well to accommodate the need for social distancing. We’ll be back after lockdown.

We had a wonderful lunch & the food was great, but both my son & I chose the cheesecake & we were both disappointed, as we felt it was really bland. Whereas my daughter’s brûlée was fabulous & tasty - all other food & drink was excellent. The service was good & your staff were very friendly, but they seemed just too busy & we had to wait quite a while for drinks at times.

This was our first visit to Backwell Hotel, for a 'pre-lockdown' lunch. We were delighted with every aspect of our visit, :'fine dining' quality food at a reasonable price, particularly the set lunch, a friendly welcome and excellent service throughout in lovely surroundings. We will be back.

This was our third visit over the last 2 months and the only visit to a restaurant since March. We felt very safe, the presentation and standard of food was excellent and the staff extremely friendly and efficient Although the menus are not expansive this is not an issue given the menu types available and the frequent changes made to choices. Can’t wait to return.
