Really impressed, visited the hotel with a friend for a spa break and booked dinner at Beresfords restaurant in the evening. Really good service, a great menu - highly recommend the Lamb! It was nice to ask a member of staff for a recommendation and she didn't hesitate - very refreshing! Will be back and will be recommending

The afternoon tea was a perfect end to a perfect day. Our waiter was extremely efficient and cheerful. The food was fresh and delicious, we were so grateful for a doggy bag for the beautiful cakes we couldn’t manage! Would highly recommend

Always very cosy n welcoming. A few extra vegan choices would be good. Staff very good but often not enough of them and have to wait to order extra drinks. A good experience though.

The food was good overall, with few exceptions and the service was fine apart from some instances where one would need to wait to locate a waiter. The atmosphere was not very inspiring though. It felt like a medium quality restaurant, even though the food was actually good. A refurbishment could help exhibit value.

Restaurant - would like more vegetables in each dish, you need a vegan choice on the menu and more imagination with your vegetarian choice. Can I suggest nut roast. Butternut and cheese are not offering a first class protein to replace meet. Cheese is a second class protein and not a quality alternative. Could you possibly provide vegetarian sausaages at breakfast for same reason. Cannot fault the standard of service. Staff are top class.

Staff are exceptional, Abi is a credit to your establishment. The food was fresh, full of flavour and beautifully presented, with an extremely good wine list. This is my second visit to Beresfords and it continues to impress on all aspects. Highly recommended!

I booked the Sunday Lunch for 10 family members over the Phone and was given a time of 12.00 on Sunday 2nd December and paid a £50 deposit and that if we were not there after 10 minutes of that time we could loose the table. As my family were travelling from London & Northampton I had asked them not to be late and everyone arrived at 11.50. I was extremely annoyed that when we entered the restaurant at 12.00 we were told the restaurant was not open until 12.30 and my family members were not happy that they had to leave particularly early when the time we were given was incorrect. I spoke to the manager of the restaurant about by complaint but he did not seem to see a problem. I regret that I paid £31.85 service charge and as a minimum expect that to be refunded. Not happy at all.
