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.

Surprised we had to pay extra for tea and coffee with full afternoon tea. We would have expected tea and coffee to have been included in the price. However, we thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon tea experience.

The service and quality of the food was not as good as previously experienced. The waiter missed items off our order and generally wasn't very happy to be serving us. Got the feeling that he just wanted us to spend money. He was not happy when we did not order an alcohol!

We have been coming to Barnsdale Lodge for several years now, and the quality of its restaurant has always been good. However, we were particularly delighted by the welcome we had on 3 December. Service by Tomas and staff was excellent, and the cooking was superb, especially the scallop starter and the roast pheasant. Full marks again to Barnsdale and its team ! John and Margaret Rogister

When are you going to get the software package that recognises returning guests? We were told last year that it would soon be in place. We have been coming to you for about ten years and still are asked if we have stayed before.

The menu could do with a lighter option on the Main's. The food was lovely, although all substantial meats.

We booked online for Sunday dinner. Booking was easy! The staff at barnsdale lodge were friendly and helpful. We had a 4 week old baby plus our 2 daughters. They asked us where we wanted to eat and we asked to be seated somewhere that would be out of the way of the main diners. They seated us in a small side room which was perfect! The roast beef was amazing! I especially loved the red cabbage... it tasted exactly like Christmas! Kids portions were good and they had a good choice. Again their food was very tasty and they both cleared their plates. We will definitely be back.

Food was excellent, staff not so. £10.60 gratuity added to the bill was not acceptable, when I paid £110 for a meal for 2.
