Our party of 6 had just completed Rutland Half Marathon and were looking for somewhere to celebrate with good food wine and surroundings and couldn’t have picked better. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Couldn’t fault anything. Maybe not the cheapest but as the saying goes “you get what you pay for” and we didn’t leave disappointed! 👍
WEe had an excellent stay and a first rate dinner. The service was eager, fruiendly and efficient. my only, mimor, complaint was that in corresponence the hotel always addresses me as Dear Rogister. I would prefer Dear Mr Rogister or even Dear John !
Five of us sat down to a wonderful lunch in the Conservatory. The Sunday Lunch menu was excellent, the roast beef in particular memorable. We enjoyed a very relaxing afternoon.
Very enjoyable evening. Thank you to all the staff.
The perfect venue for a special occasion.
It was a lovely experience & very relaxed. Staff extremely polite & helpful. Food was excellent.
We had an excellent birthday celebration on Monday. Wonderful food and atmosphere.
An enjoyable quiet lunch in a comfortable atmospheric dining room. Pleasant staff.
Usually had the lunch time menu which is excellent value. Staying in the area so had an evening reservation. O/A escorted into lounge area & pre dinner drinks ordered & delivered in minutes. My only disappointment that Hendricks served with lime instead off cucumber. The meal order was taken & served promptly by helpful & friendly staff. All courses of an excellent standard & throughly enjoyed. The 10% service charge was well deserved with the service we received. A most enjoyable dining experience that I would be only too pleased to recommend. Thank you Barnsdale Lodge, Jacqueline Willan
Excellent service and great price
Afternoon tea very nice - waiting staff could have been more attentive. Due to low numbers the room felt empty. Really good food though
Very accommodating and lovely food. Would highly recommend!
Tasty food, excellent service from friendly, efficient waiting staff. Worth a revisit!
Quality of food ok but not outstanding, quantity fell well short of value for money.
Our party of four all enjoyed excellent meals with professionally friendly and excellent service. There was a good atmosphere in the restaurant. Thank you, keep doing it!
very nice lunch good service
You made my Mother’s 70th birthday extra special with the lovely cream tea she had. You even brought out a decorated plate with happy 70th birthday on and a sparkler which I didn’t expect it really made her day. Thank you so much
The food was amazing and I can't thank the staff enough for making my partner's birthday very special! An extra thank you for the dessert and sparkler!
Going just after new year there was no option for a "gentleman's tea" available on the day but service was extremely good & professional
We had a lovely meal celebrating a 50th birthday. the food was excellent, and service very good. Staff went out of their way to help us celebrate / decorate the table etc. Much appreciated and would recommend for a special occasion.
Wonderful service from the moment we booked, it was a 40th Birthday celabration Alison on reception was a great communicator and organised the whole event. Bar and waiting staff attentive and informative. The lady who I'm sorry I didn't catch her name even got sweets out of her car when the kids were pinching the mints lol . Many many thanks for the special day xx
Very enjoyable post Christmas break.
The atmosphere was lovely and the service was great. Most of the food was delicious but thought the cheese was a bit tired. Otherwise it was a great night
Lovely afternoon tea, in great setting
