We had a nice time - however the wait staff could be a wee bit quicker in asking about when we would be ready to start. The tea when poured the waiter should have had a napkin with them to mop up any split tea - this did not happen. They also should be shown how to pour the tea from the side of the table where the cup was sitting not lend over the guess. I had trouble catching the eye of a waiter as what I am assuming was the manager was having what looked like a serious chat with one of the waiters.Chats should be given away from guests The very last tea I asked for did not arrive. I did not bring any of this up as I had my daughter with me and she would be been highly uncomfortable and it was suppose to be a nice day out. The food was good - need to have some sandwiches that do not have mayonnaise would be my daughters pick - the scones were great. Saying all this I would go back - however would ask before hand about the fillings and ask to tweak where necessary.

I read about this hotel and was very excited to go there and try it. I was quite disappointed with it overall. The restaurant was absolutely beautifully designed and extremely tasteful,but on the night we went very empty with no ambiance. Lighting was like a Chinese restaurant, way too bright, the woman at the bar had no idea how to make a cocktail and to top it off they charged us extra for paying with a credit card. I know this is common but why not just put it in the cost. Before we booked we looked up the menu and was excited to see bone marrow, flounder and an interesting selection of food to choose from. Alas none of theses selections was on the menu the night we went. The food was good, but not outstanding. This place should be better than it is. Who wants to have the rice bubbles brought out for breakfast before we even get out the door.

This was the second time we had been to Cookes for high tea. We loved it the last time and this time was equally nice. Everything was perfect and we will definitely be back.

Unfortunately our waitress was unable ti fufill a drink request. She had no idea what the fish was or how it was cooked. By the third question she was replaced by what we assumed was the restaurant manager. We did not ask for this but glad they realised the waitress was struggling with her role. Slower service than we have experienced before sadly. Food was tasy but not outstanding this time.

We really enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Cooke's restaurant, we liked the informality and friendly atmosphere of the restaurant. The food was excellent both in variety and quality, in fact this was good as we have had at any top class restaurant. We were guests at the hotel and breakfast was also excellent with good variety and again was of an exceptionally high standard. We will be strongly recommending this restaurant to our friends.

We had high tea, which was quite good, but the service was lackluster. We waited a looooong time for our scones and getting our tea refilled was very difficult. In fact, we gave up getting a final cup. But the food was quite good and it was a fair value.

The atmosphere would have scored a 5-star rating if only the kitchen was not in view from the dining area. As this may not be possible given the layout and structure of the restaurant, perhaps the kitchen staff should not place all those plastic containers of food on the counter. The look is not professional. And we did catch one of the kitchen staff handling the food without gloves on!! We chose to overlook this as the food turned out unexpectedly good. :)

We had the high tea, food was amazing, and lots of variety. Bottomless cups of tea, and you could try a range, which was a nice touch. Great Service, and we will definitely be returning.
