Unfortunately the main course was only luke warm by the time it arrived (not helped by a cold plate). The lamb was mostly fat and gristle and rather tough.Rather disappoitning for Sunday lunch.

The hotel is lovely, we had a really good meal in the bar about a month ago so thought we would come back for Sunday Lunch for a birthday celebration. Unfortunately the service was terrible we waited far to long for all our coarse, no one asked us if we wanted any more drinks whilst we where at the table nor where we offered the wine list. The restaurant was very quite so there was no excuse for the bad service and to top it all the service charge was still put on our bill! One there small thing was we had coffee after but had no chocolate's with it. This mat sound very silly but the devil is in the detail and this was missing form our visit. I did mention the poor service to the waitress when I paid, there where also two managers present at the time but was not offered and discount or reimbursement of any kind I fear my complaint may have fallen on deaf ears.

A delight from first to last. Our room had some delightful touches, beds induced immediate slumber and bath and shower were welcoming. Service and of course the food, in the restaurant were excellent and importantly, friendly. We had a small hiccup over the tea but the apology was so fulsome and sincere it was almost worth it! Only little problem was that the stairs are not designed for octogenarians, so next time we`ll opt for the ground floor. However, the exercise probably did us good! Hope to see you again in the Autumn. Kind Regards Anthony Dougall

Excellent meal although we felt it a pity that the menu remained the same for the two days we were staying ( possibly for the week or longer?)and there were no daily specials with only one vegetarian option.

Lovely hotel with beautiful restaurant. Very attentive and professional staff. We went for sublime Sunday. The food was excellent. Great starters and our mains of beef and lamb were faultless. However a small criticism/suggestion would be ...could you give more custard with the crumble! Or at least offer a small extra portion or even reduce the quantity of the crumble. We love your crumble but the custard to crumble ration isn’t right and one ends up having to leave a portion of the crumble. An absolute shame! Many thanks.

We stayed in Willow room, toilet needs a silent fill ball valve. Shower does not drain properly. A bin is also needed in bathroom and a shaving mirror. It was quite disconcerting to smell smoke from the log fires below constantly in the room, leaving clothes smelling. Considering this was an upgrade and the first time we have stayed in the main house. I do think these issues should be dealt with as soon as possible as you are graded a 4* hotel. However, as usual the atmosphere of the hotel was as good as ever.

We had a truly terrible experience at your restaurant. It was my husband’s 40th birthday and we were expecting a delicious three course meal. We were given an awful one! The starter was minuscule, tasteless and lazily put together. Main course absolutely disgusting (fish dish tasted of beef dripping and completely over cooked) and pudding massive - could’ve fed 6 people but totally frozen so much that you couldn’t get your spoon into it at all. Tasted like it came from a packet from a supermarket. To top it all off we had to sit and wait for 2 hours (even though there was hardly anyone in the restaurant) for all the courses to come. So upsetting and disappointing considering the cost of the meal. Really lets down what it otherwise a fantastic hotel.

Regarding d,b&b basis it is much better value if you take your evening meal in the bar rather than the restaurant. More food and you avoid a £10 service charge which I assume is a tip for staff. Check your bill after your meal as we were double charged twice for drinks. This seems to be standard practice in a number of establishments I've stayed at recently, so don't feel embarrassed to double check. Also on their website an allowance of £20 was stated for evening meal but later told that it included a three course meal. Just as well because how they can justify to charge £36 for a two course meal in the restaurant is beyond me given that the amount of food you get for the main course isn't significant. Dessert I must say represented better value. Happy with our room including a comfortable bed and helpful staff, especially when they realise that you intend to double check every bill!
