Great food and a nice venue (slightly strange driving down the drive of the park!) the service could do with some tweaks to match the food, eg appropriate cutlery for each course before food arrives so you’re not left waiting and food going cold/jug of water for table/menu to be explained regarding steaks available by weight. Overall enjoyed the food and would go back for a tasty steak.

Main course steaks and extras excellent but disappointed in deserts. Lemon meringue with pistachio ice cream, pastry overdone and ice cream was a few 1cm dollops. Mince tart a little better but not value for money , also lacked ice cream.

Great Sunday lunch - meat is very good as was vegetarian option and nice to be able to have more gravy as well as vegetarian gravy Only issue was lack of seating in bar so we went straight to our table whilst awaiting all of our party Not rushed despite only having one course and drinks

A perfect way to spend a quality, leisurely Sunday morning. Breakfast in the Black Iron and then a couple of drinks at the bar.

I rang to make a booking for afternoon tea for 6 people between Christmas & New Year but wasn't told that it would still be the festive afternoon tea by the lady making the reservation and it was not mentioned in the confirmation emails after that. We were informed at the table & a few people were not fans of the sandwiches offered sadly. It may have said this on the website but I rang to book & it should have been mentioned at that point so we could have gone elsewhere. Most of the scones we were served were not edible either, they were hard & well overcooked! We asked them to exchange one plate of them but couldn't be bothered with the rest and left them. It was for a special birthday & sadly now would think twice about returning for afternoon tea or recommending to anyone.

This was the latest in a number ... maybe five, or six, visits to the Black Iron restaurant. It follows that I am delighted in almost every single respect with all aspects of the restaurant. I must confess that on this last visit, I was somewhat disappointed with my starter. I chose the Beef Tartare, and it was delicious. The disappointment stems from the size of the dish. A starter is just that, and one doesn't wish for, or require, a huge serving. But the Beef Tartare was tiny, and I would estimate consisted of no more than a heaped tablespoon of beef, artistically shaped into a hoop, so to speak, with an egg yolk in the centre. Delicious, but very expensive, and I believe well overpriced, given the quantity of beef.
