Food was great, very noisy in conservatory, tables very close together so difficult to get in & out of. 10% service charge added which we didn't see any mention of! Had to inform waiting staff that we were ready to order.
This was the first time using Barnsdale Lodge, the service from start to finish was excellent. This also added to our wedding anniversary evening meal. Superb and already looking forward to coming back.
My Wife ordered " English Herb Garden " off your pudding menu. The description excluded any reference to the chocolate fondue piping. My Wife is allergic to chocolate. The pudding was rejected and substituted with ice cream after some delay. At no time did anyone enquire if there were any allergies. Your menu description of this item was misleading by omission. At the end of the meal we all wished to coffee and tea after a considerable wait I had to search out staff to take our order. The evening was not of your usual standard
An excellent evening, as always
Enjoyable Afternoon Tea with family
Fantastic food in a lovely setting, with happy and friendly staff. My husband and I had a perfect evening.
We like the place very much and go fairly often. However, despite the staff being very pleasant, the service is not always great...quite slow and innattentive. This time we asked for some French dressing for a salad and were informed there was none. Very strange considering bread is served with little dipping bowls of oil and vinegar. Surely the kitchen staff could have made up a portion of dressing for the salad. However the rest of the food was very tasty.
Excellent food and comfortable rooms. Enjoyed the courtyard for afternoon drinks. Felt vet relaxed here
Friendly helpful staff. Delicious afternoon tea
The experience would have been even better if bone China was used
Service and food is great ,
Unfortunately there were long dark hairs on the napkin when we arrived.
One of the best meals we have had over the years we have been visiting you. The distinct tastes of the ingredients of the meal were retained by the cooking and the portion size for us was right.
Had a great meal here! Would happily recommend to others.
Beautiful lunch in a lovely setting, didn't find the waiting staff particular ly friendly but this didn't spoil a lovely afternoon with a friend .
We had an lovely lunch on Sunday. The food was delicious, service was excellent & the atmosphere was really relaxed. Would definitely return/recommend.
very civilized way of spending a lunchtime - with old colleagues in the conservatory. And very good value.
good food in a lovely setting
Really welcoming receptionists. Beautiful surroundings. Relaxing atmosphere.
Ostrich was very good. Starters particularly good. Risotto a bit plain. Good, friendly service and very pleasant to stay here. Rooms could do with some better lighting. Better flushing toilets needed. Overall very pleased.
Had a lovely time at Barnsdale Lodge for Afternoon Tea on Mothering Sunday. A little gift for the Mum’s at the end of the tea was a great touch and made the day more memorable. Service was great, happy staff and seemed glad to help. Would definitely recommend Barnsdale for an occasion!
The menu selection process with a large group is made so much easier by the events team. The food is fantastic, staff are friendly to both adults and children and very obliging. The whole meal was fantastic.
An excellent meal as ever. We regularly meet up with family and have always had a good meal
