A lovely relaxed experience and great food. Staff were excellent, very helpful. Premises, parking and table were easily accessible for our wheelchair. We will return!

The food was delicious and the manager Eddie was great , but the bar service was bad , had to wait 15-20 mins for drinks after ordering at the bar and the barmaid wasn’t very nice , they also didn’t have what we originally asked for but managed to get something similar , otherwise the meal was lovely

We went to the Plumpy duck on Sunday for an early dinner. We had a voucher to use from our wedding. The food was pretty poor, we had a a roast duck main which was rather chewy and a roast chicken main which was ok nothing wow the potatoes were too hard. Our desserts were a sticky toffee pudding which was fine and a strawberry’s crumble which was like water and far to big a portion. Overall pretty disappointing.

Lovely place, food very good, but the service lets it down. Rushed, chaotic, not that professional and doesn;t match the rest of it.

Dinner was really good, food excellent. Only negative was at breakfast we asked 4 times for tea to go along with our breakfast and never got it. Got fed up of waiting so left. Fed this back to reception staff who were patronising and less than interested. This would put me off staying overnight again however can not fault the dinner at all.

This could be great but the service time was appalling and the duck was still raw in places. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was mediocre with very little choice e.g. scrambled eggs or no eggs.

Starters were ok. Mains were poor and cooked breakfast was very poor. If it had been our first visit we would not be back.

Really poor service and quality. Didnt know what condiments we were after let alone have them. Waitress very immature and wrong personality trying to be casual but coming across as amateur and not at all professional or experienced. Very slow service and had to prompt every step of the way. Fathers Day treat and really disappointing for a place promoting itself as newly refurbished and open for business.

We really enjoyed our meal at the weekend, the food was delicious, at Breakfast too! The bar service left a bad taste however as we had to ask twice for our second drinks order. My husband had finished his main meal before his drink (ordered between courses) arrived, another waiter, separate to the bar staff had actually poured the pint himself to save us waiting any longer! He and the staff on at breakfast time were so attentive, could not fault a thing then! x

A desert was cancelled due to kitchen not having all the ingredients, but was still served so we going to keep only to find the chocolate sauce was the worst I've ever seen. Had a skin on the top and it was completely split, not sure how it passed the QC, if there is any... it was a shame as the rest of meal was fantastic. There wasnt really an apology either.

My mum and I had afternoon tea, it was perfectly lovely. The service was excellent. This was a birthday gift from my friend, and we throughly enjoyed our day. It was made even more special with a tour of your fabulous spa facilities. I'm planning a girls day at the spa once I get back from holiday. Well done Bowfield.
