About Barnett Hill - The Oak Restaurant & Terraces
Combining influence from classic dishes with innovative cooking techniques and the freshest seasonal ingredients, The Oak Room Restaurant at Barnett Hill Hotel offers award-winning dining with service to match. Head Chef David James and his brigade of talented chefs aim to provide you with a dining experience not to be missed.
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.
The Staff was fantastic especially the man in Reception he went above and beyond for us .
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!
Really lovely meal, unhurried in gorgeous surroundings with helpful and patient staff.
Perfect alfresco lunch in beautiful surroundings. Excellent service, friendly and attentive.
Fantastic and lovely place
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!
Everything about this place is fabulous - the decor, grounds, food, drinks, atmosphere, service and all at a reasonable price!
We felt at home but with amazing outing atmosphere!!!!! We are so privileged to be able to spend Xmas with out family at Barnett hill and would love to be back ASAP
Our very lovely waitress (Spanish) lady gave us excellent service. The food, in particular the main course, was absolutely delicious. Thanks for making it a lovely occasion.
Given the strange and challenging times our lunch here was a breath of fresh air. We will be back to stay.
Whole room was fantastic! Absolutely gorgeous! The staffs were really brilliant and kind. Will definitely be paying them a visit again as soon as amenable!
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.
We'd really recommend an evening here. The food was lovely, and the staff in particular made for a lovely experience - the service is so friendly and attentive. Worth a visit.
Great service great food
Had another marvelous meal of quality delicious food in a lovely setting with excellent professional friendly service. Definitely recommend
excellent as ever. Wonderful staff. Food was a little poor this time, steak over cooked, Baked Alaska very poor. However, had a terrific short getaway and will be back. Its the ambiance & people that make this hotel terrific.
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.
Delicious food in a wonderful setting . Excellent professional friendly service . Absolute pleasure for both meals . Definitely recommend
