Sunday lunch was OK but two of the key things mentioned on the menu that, to be honest, are what make a great roast dinner - Yorkshire puddings and crackling - were both incredibly disappointing. The crackling just wasn't, and the Yorkshire puddings were tiny and flabby. So, certainly not a bad meal, but I've cooked better at home...and I'm not a chef! This place has fantastic potential but, if it is to be realised, the kitchen needs to improve dramatically.

Supply tea ready to go and not a pot of hot water and add your tea bags at the table. The water had a strong musty smell to it and we sent it back for coffee instead. The fruit scones were not cooked on the inside so were also sent back, together with the ones folks had at the table adjacent to ours. Just not the afternoon tea delight we were hoping for.

I have been for lunch once and brunch twice now. Same problems time after time. I will now only visit the bar, the restaurant is terrible.

I booked the afternoon team (sandwiches and cakes) for my daughter's birthday and was really disappointed with the amount of food we got for £22 per head. It was definitely not worth the £66 I paid for three people.

We were located in the second dining room and were the only people in the room so it was away from the main dining room and as such the service was lacking (out of sight out of mind). This effected the entire atmosphere for the evening . Looking forward to it but disappointed.

The only criticism I have is to do with the car park. It doesn’t look like it’s been finished off very well when the house and restaurant are so beautiful. it’s full of muddy pot holes and could do with some TLC

We advised before hand and on the day that we didn’t like smoked salmon, you just removed them ..... never asked if we would like anything else in its place ! I did mention this to the waitress and she said nothing. Bought in mince pies and ginger loaf ! Disappointing to say the least. The other things were gorgeous and service was excellent. Beautiful place but let down. Sorry.

We were. disappointed that we had booked afternoon tea and you had none of the more common teas ie, no earl grey, Darjeeling or assam and that your staff, while very pleasant weren't particularly well informed about the products you were offering. When we arrived we got the impression that we weren't expected and none of you staff actually knew what was happening

Hi meal was really nice and tasty, but would like to state that the sides ie potatoes or veg should be included in the set menu price and that more gravy should be included and not charged extra for. Deserts and starter were good value too.

The room we were in was very echoey. The food arrived at stages over about 20 mins so some of the sides arrived when we were almost finished with the main. I had heard really great things about Winstanley House and was looking forward to it but the experience I had was very disappointing.
