The atmosphere was a bit dead until about 9pm. Also to charge £4.50 for water is robbery! I understand you’re a high end restaurant and honestly with the quality of food I would happily pay the price you charge for the food. But water..... £4.50!!!!!??!
Lovely setting and food, however feeling very let down by the staff in the bar. I waited for the over 20 mins for a drink while stood at the bar watching them move bottles and figure out how to make a cocktail.
Fantastic food. Best meal we ate at CMR
Good portion sizes and yummy food!
The scallop starter and laksa starters was nice but not very warm. The Rice and Pad Thai was bland and the Asian greens and Massaman Rib were lacking flavour. The salted caramel desert was very nice. Service was ok but waiter didn’t know the name of the dish we ordered when questioned on it and the staff didn’t seem too knowledgable about the menu. £25 for Pad Thai and curry is excessive, especially when so bland. Difficult to recommend based on the experience we had that night.
The food was less than average, the service was slow. My lamb was so fatty I could barely eat any of it. My dessert was tiny. It wasn’t busy but we were waiting for ages for our food and the dessert menu only came when we asked for it again. The wine was horrible and I couldn’t drink it. Waited 20mins for a soft drink. Had to tip nearly £9 for something I didn’t enjoy. My friends pad Thai she said was bland and nothing special. Left there feeling very disappointed
It was my wife's birthday and we were staying in Celtic manor. As a gesture they offered a free glass of prosecco each on arrival then charged it to us on the bill. As it was my wife's birthday I did not say anything as didn't want to make a fuss but it spoilt it a little for me.
Menu not explained very well cold food
A really lovely meal super atmosphere, service and helpful, friendly staff. Would go again, preferably soon!
We were welcomed warmly and my wife was offered a complimentary mocktail for her birthday (As she is 7 months pregnant) which was very much appreciated. The duck pancakes to start were also very nice. Thereafter the service in the restaurant was really very poor. My wife requested another mocktail from the bar only for the drink to arrive with alcohol in it. This was returned and a replacement brought over along with the comment, "The bar tender does not think he put alcohol in it but we have changed it just in case." When the mains arrived,the sharing plater for two, this was a very mixed bag. Some dishes were very nice, however others were a little bland and unimpressive. The dirty plates then remained on the table for at least 30 minutes before they were cleared away. When ordering dessert my wife asked whether she would be OK to eat any of the desserts and was told that as the ice-cream was not pasteurised she should not have this but could have sorbet instead. After around 10-15 minutes a different member of staff came to advise that there was no sorbet left but that the chosen dessert could be served without anything on the side. After a further wait yet another member of staff brought the desserts and advised that she was unsure why we were advised that my wife could not eat the ice cream as she has pregnant relatives who eat ice cream all the time. After the waitress had left I realised that my own dessert was not what I had ordered but felt it would take too long to request it be changed. After finishing the desserts we then were made to wait for a very long time for the plates to be cleared and to avoid further delay we requested the bill. The bill was brought over within 5 minutes but we then waited another 20-25 minutes for the waiter to come back, only to be told that we would need to pay on the way out. Overall a three course meal took a little over 3 hours from start to finish. Having received positive recommendations for the restaurant from family, my wife and I were left very disappointed by the entire visit.
Incredible food, delicious. Highly recommend. Busy (good atmosphere), so staff were not able to respond very quickly at times.
The food was gorgeous and atmosphere was so lovely and calming. Only issue was that we were presented with the wrong desert (which we were informed of) but both my partner and I felt too rude to take up the offer to change the desert as we didn't want to cause a hassle.
The waiter kaspa was amazing, couldn’t of been more helpful
Amazing food, service, atmosphere. It would be even better still if there was less peanut on the menu from an allergy perspective.
Beautiful meal, excellent service Our 3rd time and will return for a 4th However, probably slightly overpriced (25.50 for curry and rice?!)
Whilst the service we received was good it was the length of time it took for our food to arrive that was the issue however it was certainly worth the wait x x
Fantastic night, superb food and wonderful recommendations from enthusiastic staff. My only comment would be that there wasn’t enough variety of white wines by the glass. We will definitely be back again
Fantastic food, friendly staff, all round great restaurant
Lovely food, good children's menu and great service.
Excellent food n service
Lovely restaurant but limited menu & a bit pricey. Service was good. Food generally good. Sharing platter for 2 and crispy duck pancakes for starters were delicious but the noodles in the Pad Thai were a bit over cooked.
Great food, drink and service.
The food was of a good standard however, did not exceed my expectations. Poor service, table not wiped following main course and although waitress was polite she was not attentive and did not appear to be very knowledgeable about the food being served. This was also in regards to pouring of wine and water offering of more drinks resulting in us calling waiters over to serve. I feel that basic service such as these comments is what is expect from a high end restaurant. Poor Atmosphere also. It was because of the overall experience that we declined paying the 10% service charge and gave 5% instead. We have stayed at the hotel on several occasions and have always received exceptional food and service however, was very disappointed this time. It was also my husbands 40th birthday celebration which was also disappointing.
Over 40 minute wait for starter, when it arrived the duck was overcooked and dry. Promised the mains would be 'special'. They certainly were, with both of them sent back for being cold, as well as the rice and green vegetables. A totally disastrous meal . I could go on but you have the gist of a forgettable evening. Thanks for ruining a 40th wedding anniversary night.
