About Black Knight Restaurant at Lumley Castle Hotel
The elegant setting and superb food on offer in our award winning Black Knight Restaurant make it a popular choice for diners from far and wide. Subtle lighting, lavish furnishings, unobtrusive yet attentive service makes the Black Knight Restaurant truly memorable. Our menu offers classical dishes with an original twist. Diners can choose from our A la Carte menu and enjoy an extensive selection of fine wines to complement your meal.
The service, food and drinks are second to none. The staff was very attentive and the food was amazing. I would especially like to give kudos to Jill Gunn. She was extremely personable and very knowledgeable of the castle, restaurant, and was very friendly. Thank you all again it was a very memorable 25th wedding anniversary.
very friendly staff and very helpful
We weren’t welcomed very well and the waitress was surprised at us being booked in at 12.30 and queried it with us. The window cleaners outside were distracting and the waitress was complaining about them to us. She was quite unprofessional and was quite intrusive and didn’t leave us alone.
First class meal in nice surroundings. Food was excellent and well presented. Staff were very efficient and friendly. Will definitely go again
We were celebrating our 24th wedding anniversary & wanted something special. Everything was just perfect ! Thank you to all the staff.
Fantastic afternoon tea, your staff were a credit to your hotel nothing was to much trouble a Big Well Done !!
My wife and I celebrated our Wedding Anniversary at the Black Night Restaurant, and although it was very busy on a Monday night we were ''seen to'' without any problems. An overnight stay at the Castle was also excellent. Thank you to all at the Restaurant and the Castle.
What you lack in sophistication and choice (at your prices) you make up for in volume: The steaks were excellent but huge, the sauces verged on the insipid. For a dinner for two at over £100 I would have expected a bonne bouche or two and more adventurous vegetables.
Good was ok a lovely castle which I love an have stayed lots of time. Value for money im afraid iv had a lot better.
Lovely place to dine. Food was good quality. Service a little haphazard, a lot of the time restaurant staff were missing from the restaurant. Appeared to spend more time in the kitchen. It is therefore the main thing management need to look at. Otherwise an enjoyable meal
A lovely meal served by very friendly staff
was a fabulous night, given that the UK were playing their match the restaurant accommodated us by taking our orders up where we watched the match, and then we came down to eat afterwards,thanks again !
The food was nice but there was not enough of it.E.G. rubarb and custard dessert ginger bread ice cream consisted of a tiny finger size slice of custard tart with a sliver of rubarb,I could hardly see the rubarb it was so small. The whole menu was overpriced for what was pesented on the plate.
Great service, excellent food
It was our first time visiting the hotel and we really enjoyed our afternoon tea which was bought as a gift. It was also lovely to enjoy our food outside given the lovely weather we've experienced lately. I'll certainly recommend the afternoon tea to friends and look forward to visiting again.
Enjoyed a lovely dinner here. Warm welcome, great service and delicious food.
lovely restaurant,great food and service,found the drinks a little expensive.
Very comfortable room. Lovely surroundings. Great service.
The restaurant is in amazingly well preserved castle that provide a unique atmosphere!
Awful afternoon tea, soggy sandwiches, hard stale meat, dry scones
Great dining experience. Very friendly and efficient staff. Food was lovely.
Everything was fine as expected.
Sorry had to mark the service as 1 star as we have been to the Black Knight Restaurant a number of times but this time we just didn’t feel the service was as good as previous occasions, My wife had to ask for a bread bun as people seemed to be arriving after us and receiving there’s and just generally we felt out of place which was wrong - food was 2nd to none absolutely beautiful
Had a wonderful stay and food for our Anniversary. We will be back again thanks to everyone.
Enjoyed the atmosphere, and the food. The acoustic guitarist was a nice touch. The service was a 4 not a 5 as our main was brought too quickly after we finished our starter.
