If you want to guarantee a place at The Balmer Lawn, then you can book a table in the bar area or the dining room.
We can’t book a table for you on the terrace, but if you prefer to sit outside, we will do our best to seat you there when you arrive.
When the sun is shining in the Summer, people often decide to come down on the spur of the moment so booking the outdoor tables isn’t possible.
Really enjoyable meal, great food and service. Attentive without being intrusive and good attention to detail. Would defiantly return.
Beautiful food and very professional level of service.
Generally excellent though desserts were not outstanding.
We had the most special evening at Beresfords. Wonderful food, atmosphere and outstanding, gracious service. We were made to feel special and so appreciated every aspect of service. We will definitely be returning soon. Thank you to all the splendid team.
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
We’ve eaten here 4 times and have always had a lovely experience.
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
Another beautiful meal here. Cant wait to return in a few weeks.
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.
Well done Balmer Lawn - our group really enjoyed the experience with good food, relaxed and friendly atmosphere and dog friendly facility. We will be back for sure.
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.
Wonderful staff exceptional food
Delicious food with nice ambience and friendly service
Very friendly staff, went out of their way to offer good service.
Lunch with family ... first class again!
Waiters were fabulous
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.
Made our family Sunday lunch relaxed and enjoyable
Wonderful food looking forward to returning staff could not be more helpful
Festive lunch was lovely, did have a piece of plastic that came with the turkey but altogether with the superb service a very good value meal.
Great lunch as always. Atmosphere suffered due to few other diners.
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!
Staff very attentive and could not do enough for us. Fabulous afternoon tea thank you
Love the food here that’s why we keep coming back we just love it amazing food and bread is so good
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.
