Once again a great night on a steak and stay package. We invited friends from Nottingham and they thoroughly enjoyed dinner and breakfast in the Knights Restaurant. Thank you.

Staff were lovely. Down to earth and friendly. Food was tasty and flavour some but portion size could be larger. We were well looked after and enjoyed our time there.

Service was great, but the sandwiches in the afternoon tea were disappointing. The quantity supplied for 3 people would be more suited to a single serving. We had to order and pay for additional sandwiches.

We had a really lovely meal and the service was exemplary. We are vegetarians and there was a good choice for us. Will be good if this was either expanded or changed frequently so that we can come back. What we had was to a very good standard.

We had visitors from Australia who wanted to experience High Tea (Afternoon Tea) in England and where better than in a castle. Er requested a table in the lounge next to the fire on booking. Staff were extremely helpful in ensuring this happened and couldn’t have be more helpful on the day thank you they took away great memories

A wonderful Sunday lunch with my visiting Kiwi family who were on honeymoon and love Castles. Excellent day as usual but let down by the lamb being very pink. The waitress had forewarned about the beef being pink but not the lamb, as I would have opted for the pork had I known.

Extremely disappointed, restaurant was dark and cold to the point of being uncomfortable. Starters were average followed by 4 main meals of Beef all of which were cold including the vegetables. These were sent back and new meals arrived that were slightly better but not much better than slightly warm but at least this time the plates were warmed up. To compound the issue the beef was chewy and fatty and far from the standard expected. Desert was nice but the coffee that we ordered was weak and watery. All in all an extremely disappointing experience.

Table was booked for 8pm. We arrived at 7.50pm and were directed into the library bar where our order would be taken while we had a drink. After an hour sat waiting for a menu and watching people arrive after us and have their orders taken before us, I had to ask for a menu. So we didn’t actually get anything to eat til after 9.30.
