Sadly, yesterday at Barnett Hill was a complete disaster. On reflection it was because of the service and attitude of Nicolas (who bizarrely is the general manager). There were ~15 people at lunch. The service was very slow, and when the beef bourguignon arrived, it was very poor indeed. We were celebrating a 91st birthday, and the quality was way below standard. I asked to speak to the chef, and that was met with criticism and disbelief. When I did speak to the chef, they told me they were a pastry chef, standing in for the head chef who was not in. The experience was just awful.

While the gardens are lovely and food was delicious as well, the staff was clearly over worked. We had a bit of escalation for no parasol when it started to drizzle which could have been handled well as that set the tone of disappointment with service. We had come out with family to unwind and relax, not face unpleasantness over miss on planning for rain

Three course lunch for a party of 10, both kids and adults. The food was incredibly good. The tortellini main course was some of the best pasta I’ve had. A glorious setting outside, a sunny terrace and plenty of lawn space for the children to run around and kick a football around. Not a cheap lunch out but a real treat. A local gem, we must use it more!

Great afternoon on the beautiful terrace at Barnett Hill. We were prepared for the cold, and there was a slight breeze, but the sun shone all afternoon, and made for a memorable lunch. Great service, and all the meals were excellent. There are no patio heaters, so just be aware that if the north wind blows, you'll need to wrap up warm! Excellent

Had several great meals. The staff serving got it just right - attentive without being overbearing - and catered for all our needs. The atmosphere was dampened by the Covid crisis, but you did well with celebration crackers and bucks fizz. Food was lovely - enjoyed all our meals and a good choice on the menu. Lovely rooms too. Well Done to all!

From the very warm greeting at the reception on Friday 18th December to when we left , we had nothing but courteous and kind service. The hotel arranged for my son and daughter in law to have a last minute wedding reception dinner for 15, as their original booking in Guildford had to be cancelled. The food was excellent and the waiting service was wonderful. I cannot thank them all enough.

Very much enjoyed the restaurant . Food excellent and staff so welcoming. Well done all under difficult circumstances. We hope to return before too long. Our only disappointment was the room being so chilly especially the loo! We enjoyed our stay very much and will recommend it to others. Keep safe and well.
