Wonderful Sunday lunch - service exemplary - nothing too much trouble. Compliments to the chef. The starters were flavoursome and colourful and included Salmon and beetroot and horseradish and pea soup with garnishes. Followed by beef with all the trimmings and two of our party had chicken. Presentation was a feast for your eyes! We finished with creme brûlée. We ate out on the terrace overlooking the rolling hills. It was wonderful - thank you to all concerned. On arrival we were greeted and had temperature checks and all covid measures were in place.

Not sure how this ever got 2 rosettes, maybe it was chefs night off ? food was certainly not of fine dining level, more Beef-eater fare. The menu is nothing like the one posted online, so why not change the one online to reflect this instead of disappointing every diner when they arrive? The setting is nice and the staff seemed friendly enough however the steak was too tough to eat and I eventually gave up on it. Then rather than taking it off the bill they comp`d two deserts instead which didn't add up to anything close to the cost of the steak. Overall a very disappointing experience for what could have been a lovely meal, wouldn't recommend or be returning.

Disappointing overall. The room we were in was soulless. Sandwiches were not fresh, the bread had ever so slightly started to harden. The scones and cakes were nice. No one came to offer more tea.

Excellent service and beautifully presented food. However, atmosphere distinctly lacking and price of wine was high. We had the house white wine which was pretty poor and expensive for what it was (£26). However, the house red, which apparently comes from the same grower, was much better but still expensive. Difficult to objectively review food as the restaurant is operating under very difficult circumstances due to coronavirus but it is coping admirably. Nice touch that the general manager of the hotel took time to visit each table. Well done but improve the house white please!

The setting, location, venue and food cannot be faulted. I had emailed ahead to advise of our Dietary requirements And the occasion of my friends birthday. On arrival We were greeted by a very friendly hostess who showed is to your table. Our orders were taken promptly however That’s were the 1st class service which I had expected ended. I understand that afternoon tea is a slower And more relaxed service As I have experienced many times before at various establishments - however we were left waiting 1hour15 minutes for the sandwiches to be brought to our table. It wasn’t until we had finished the sandwiches that we realised we had no cutlery (so approximately 10/15 minutes as you do ninth need knives and forks to eat finger sandwiches) I had to make the receptionist aware that we had nothing on the table as there were no waiting staff to be seen. Once we had finished our afternoon tea we expected someone to clear away the empty plates, top up hot water ect this didn’t happen. I had to go and ask the receptionist twice for someone to clear away our plates, bring water (for my friend who is 6 months pregnant) and ask for the bill. I explained this to the waitress who eventually cleared our table Regarding my disappointment on the service front - who then told me that she is on her own which i totally understand and would have been more sympathetic had she been busy, or had there been other diners - the car park was empty and we had the room to ourselves, so the answering back was not received well. The service charge was removed and half of the bill was taken off which were both greatly appreciated however this has unfortunately left a bit of a sour taste.

Wonderful experience - for a socially distanced family reunion. Fabulous afternoon tea. Beautifully presented - we sat on the terrace with a spectacular view. Very attentive and professional staff. Very safe all government missives adhered to. Thank you sincerely - compliments to the chef. All the best to the ex RAF chap - we enjoyed talking to you.

Lovely hotel and friendly, helpful staff. Dinner and afternoon tea were delicious. A wonderful stay. Excellent value for money as was based on one of their special deals. Atmosphere marked down as due to COVID there were very few people staying at the hotel, but not the hotel's fault!

We got married 2 years ago in this same hotel and wanted to go back to revive the lovely memories of that day. The afternoon tea we enjoyed this time, sitting in the lovely garden served by Valentino was, again, a fantastic experience. Bailbrook House Hotel is not only a beautiful house with a fantastic atmosphere, it’s also a place where the staff makes you feel at home.
