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.
We had a really lovely evening in your restaurant with our children. We cycled as we were camping locally and were able to store our bikes too. The food was delicious and staff very attentive, hardworking and polite. Thank you, we look forward to returning soon.
A great relaxed atmosphere with great staff who paid particular attention to detail and provided a excellent personal service. The food portions were very adequate and the menu choices were great with locally sourced ingredients. The menu was not overloaded with choice but what choice there was. Clearly focused on quality and not the quantity. A great atmosphere, great value, great staff and we had a wonderful time.
The whole experience was first class. Thank you Linda Burt
Excellent food and service. .
We had a lovely afternoon tea at Balmer Lawn.
Great food and atmosphere. Loved the piano player
The staff couldn’t do enough for us, accommodating our different requests for the children. Everything we had was beautifully presented, very well cooked with lots of flavour. The bread was served warm and straight out of the oven, which we couldn’t stop ourselves eating
Excellent service. Top quality food. Good choice of drinks. Only criticism is there was no sign of the name on any part of the external building so for a first time visitor it was awkward to know if we were in the right place. Now we know we will return.
1 main course was warm and bland Service was average at best staff didn’t know dishes or explain menu . Too many different waiters ... no rapport Sat in bar and with menus and had to go to the restaurant ourselves rather than our order being taken and then escorted to the table
Had a lovely afternoon tea at Balmer Lawn in the lounge area.We met up with my husbands cousin and the staff made us feel very welcome. The cakes,scones and finger sandwiches were very yummy!
Slow service despite being the only customers. Friendly service from Abi.
I had the pollock. Beautifully cooked as always, well presented. I just thought maybe the dish needed a sauce of some kind.
Excellent food and service.
I brought my 89yr old Mother for afternoon tea on Mothers Day . The staff were so nice to us and very helpful and even though it was a very busy afternoon and they worked so hard they remained cheerful and helpful . Thank you all for the lovely experience you gave my Mother.
This was almost great because staff are lovely and the food is great. However, a few minor things let my visit down. Firstly, we were not given a wine menu. When we asked for one we were given a menu without bottles of wine on it. Secondly, we were told the starters were small and we should have three of the light bites. However, we were not told diners were given bread for free so we ended up over ordering and had to stop eating the starters so we were not full before the main course. Thirdly, I was told my main course took the longest to cook as 25 minutes (no problem). However, I had to wait 45 minutes for it which was too long in my opinion. All this aside the food is FANTASTIC at a reasonable price and the hotel is lovely. If they sort out the minor issues with service it would be brilliant all round.
Good food nicely presented Excellent service
Lovely time having Afternoon Tea at Balmer Lawn. Staff were nice and attentive and provided a special birthday surprise for us.
We had a delicious meal, thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
Lovely dinner and service. Highly recommend.
We had a lovely Saturday evening meal in Beresfords. We arrived in time for drinks in the cosy lounge in front of the fire. Nice and relaxed from the beginning. We were offered menus to browse at our leisure before going to the dining room. The menu was really good and hard to choose as all the dishes sounded lovely. We both enjoyed everything we had and particularly loved the home made bread which arrived fresh from the oven. Lovely staff, tasty food and great atmosphere. What more could you want from a Saturday night out. We will return.
Staff are very friendly and the food was great. We travel 2.5 hours to get here just for the afternoon tea
We came for our wedding anniversary having seen that you've got AA stars and were very disappointed. We had high hopes seeing the refurbishment as we came in but overall it didn't work and the cost was such that I went back the next day to check that the amount on my credit card receipt was correct.
We had a voucher from buy a gift which we used on an afternoon tea, it was very nice
Lovely afternoon tea in lovely surroundings, excellent service and very polite staff
Beautiful food and amazing service.
