Some of extras could be shared such as new potatoes this would reduce waste and could be put on menu as possible share. However I appreciate that this is a business and that some people appreciate larger portions. Overall food was excellent

As a non drinker it's so important to me to enjoy a drink when I am out. Mock tails are to sweet . Becks blue is exceptable, The effort that some one went to for me was above and beyond, by total fluke there was a bottle on non alcoholic wine, so to enjoy a meal, with wine in a beautiful glass, just made my night. Cannot tell you what a difference this made from other places.👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

A fabulous transformation of a previously derelict property. We went on a Tuesday eve for our anniversary celebration so it was fairly quiet but still enough atmosphere. Food & service were excellent. The staff were all friendly & cheerful both on the front desk, restaurant & the bar. They even brought a fruit platter to the table at dessert time with “happy anniversary” iced on! Just fab . Highly recommend. Will definitely be back.

There were four of us dining. We had an excellent meal, served to us on warm plates and nice and hot. The service was really good, all staff were very pleasant. It was busy which gave a nice atmosphere. We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening and vowed to definitely visit again.

Parts of the food were luke warm which was disappointing like food had been left on the pass, such as chips and the sauce to my sea bream. There is a draft coming from the original front door so we were cold and there still doesn’t appear to be wheelchair access which makes bringing a pushchair difficult. Service was quite slow eg getting the drinks took a while and even though there was 4 of us, 1 drink was wrong and 1 was missing. Our waitress was lovely though and gave a good wine recommendation. Winstanley house really need to stop serving steaks on scalding hot skillets as they continue to cook the meat and there doesn’t seem to be any continueity as the last time we had chateaubriand there was half a head of roasted garlic and salad and this time there was salad only for the same price?

Fantastic place, lovely food and great service. Only negative was that a van double parked behind us even though there was plenty of parking spaces which meant we couldn't get out. Hotel gave us complimentary drinks whilst they tried to locate the owner which was a nice touch.

Having never been here before I was absolutely blown away on arrival. The venue is beautiful, All the rooms I saw were tastefully decorated having an air opulent indulgence about them. We went for lunch, it was very busy and we did have to hurry along our order as one of our group had to leave promptly. But worth the wait as the salmon I had for a starter was truly sublime. After lunch we asked if we could have a look in any of the rooms and a young gentleman was happy to take us. Overall, the service was excellent, with all staff appearing to be extremely courteous and helpful.

Unfortunately the motorbikes outside were spoiling the atmosphere in our room & didn’t give us confidence in the area immediately beyond the hotel either which felt quite quite unsafe to us. None of this though is the fault of the hotel which in itself was fine. Just in a rough area.

Visited for the first time for Sunday lunch. Food was very good and good value for money. Nice location and sunny terrace for a drink before lunch. Staff were friendly and helpful, but service a little slow initially and a few slip ups with our order and bill. Would visit again though.
