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.
An excellent evening enjoyed by the whole family. Thank you.
Lovely food, lovely atmosphere, will definitely call again. Thankyou
Its quite a formal traditional restaurant which I like. The starter of pigeon was complained by my guest and fed back to the waitress. The whole dish design is exceptionally poor value with tiny slivers of pigeon and the whole dish could be eaten within 30 seconds. He was quite annoyed about that dish. I urge you to look at that finished dish and ask how can it be improved, is it really value? Would your staff pay good money for that. First choice wine was out which was disappointing too. Overall though a good meal.
Good value and great atmosphere, only issue was the Tea was a bit cool.
£35 for two Special offers always turns out at least 20% more....just be aware
We enjoyed our lunch and the elegant restaurant. I had the "Broth" which was not very good. The base was watery and lacked depth of flavour. Otherwise the food was very good.
What a superb lunchtime experience.The setting is first class with lovely crisp white linen at the table. Really can't fault the food, service or value with the 2 for £35 offer. It would be easy (and quite common) for the restaurant to increase their income by charging over the odds for drinks but these were surprisingly reasonably priced too.What's not to love.
What an amazing place. Made to feel instantly special from the moment you arrive. Setting again is perfectly presented. I will certainly be returning.
I only rate the service as 3 as there were one or two occasions where the quality of service was let down e.g having to ask for a bread roll roll which had been forgotten.Waiting for water for 10 minutes after requesting it with the wine that came promptly.Also a couple more little incidents that is nitpicking but shouldn't really be happening considering the cost of the meal.I was also furious with the "pigeon breast"starter on night 1.The portion was approximately the size of my little finger cut into 3 slivers.In no way was it worth the cost.As it was for my wife's birthday i did not want to make a fuss and even now we laugh about it.The rest of the food was excellent for both of us.We had a fantastic stay in all honesty.
A lovely Sunday dinner with friends, both couples were also celebrating 45 years of marriage each. great atmosphere, food and service.
Fantastic food and service, thoroughly lovely evening.
Afternoon tea special treat for my mam and myself. We had a lovely lady who served us. I had to bring my 7 year old with us and he was made to feel very special by the lovely lady. We will be back thank you for a lovely afternoon x
A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Fabulous food, friendly, helpful staff and a magnificent environment. Absolutely wonderful.
5 Star.Could not get any better.
Always great food and service
As always first class
Lovely food and nice friendly staff. Woul recommend the steak, cooked to perfection.
Always enjoy our stay. The staff are always so nice. One complaint, no heating until six pm, so quite a cool first hour. The evening meal was delicious apart from a mushy aurbergene accompaniment to the lamb. I would have preferred a minted pea purée, or anything that would have complemented the lamb instead if detracting from it.
Lovely dining area...very friendly staff . Polite and kept a discreet eye out to clear plates exc. Hope to visit again.
Well, the food was quality, although our first choice of sweet wasn’t available, the second choice was nice. The price has been hiked up from £19.95 for 3 courses and coffee or tea with condiments, to £22.95 for 3 courses and an additional £2.95 for coffee or tea with condiments, £5.90 price hike is quite a rise for the same lunch.
Very disappointed with the afternoon tea. Asa special occasion I had booked for my family who live away. The sandwiches were salmon paste and should be smoked salmon for the price. Only had fruit scones which 3 people don’t like. Usually there would be at least 2 varieties of scones each. No strawberries for the scones and I didn’t think the cakes were particularly nice. Unfortunately we won’t be back for afternoon tea.
Great setting and efficient and welcoming service
I Booked to stay in the Hotel with my partner for dinner, bed and breakfast and paid the full amount on arrival. Hotel and breakfast were very nice but evening meal was a disaster. Only one vegetarian option which I had to ask to confirm. The sauce was overpowering and unpleasant and made the pastry soggy. There was very little goat's cheese. My partner had the chicken dish which was very mediocre and had POPCORN on the chicken??? I could not eat my meal and complained. I was brought a bill with only one meal charged for and the BOTTLE of wine. I explained that I had already paid on arrival. I was told that it would be sorted when I checked out. When I checked out I was not given a discount and was charged £21 for the bottle of wine we had. Never again!!!
The setting is fantastic, atmospheric and dramatic. The staff were very attentive and patient, but the food was second to none. Highly recommended and cooked to perfection. This will be a great night to remember and we would love to come back - hopefully very soon. A big thank you to everyone and thank you for making my partners birthday and special day to remember.
Everything we wished for given the special nature of the celebration dinner. Every detail of the booking had been followed through as per our instructions and the service was warm and friendly, particularly the Italian lady who looked after us so well and couldn't do enough to make the evening a memorable one.
