Good food, tasty, enjoyable three course meal. Lovely bottle of red wine, but massively marked up in price from what it retails at.

This was a honest basic afternoon tea, nothing inspiring just good! The scones were really nice and loose tea would be better everything else was middle of the road. Would I go again? Yes but i would not out of my way to do so.

Unfriendly staff, not interested in customer service, food for the afternoon tea was very poor and not value for money at all. It's a shame as the building and grounds are stunning. Unfortunately I would not recommend to anyone

I appreciate COVID means limited contact but no staff showed their faces once food and drink was provided. Given a party of 3 were given a milk jug suitable for 1 person it was disappointing I had to get up and go to the kitchen door to ask for more milk.

Very disappointing, felt like we were part of a production line of people who had booked via special offers. The price was still competitive but the service and quality of the experience was very poor. Will not be using the service in the future and definitely won’t be recommending to friends or family.

We dined at the restaurant using a Travelzoo voucher for a Sunday lunch. The meal quality and service were excellent. The staff were all efficient, friendly and very careful about following all the COVID measures. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and felt very safe. Well done and thank you to all concerned.

Our three day stay at Nunsmere Hall Hotel was really enjoyable. Staff were welcoming and amenable to supporting us in a change of room on arrival. The friendly atmosphere was very relaxing which was certainly needed we took every opportunity to soak up the wonderful grounds surrounding the Hall and had the opportunity to spend peaceful times with drinks in the gardens taking in the beautiful details surrounding us Breakfasts were particularly good and the dining areas again were very relaxing and quite beautiful in a understated stylish way. Staff at Nunsmere have taken every step to support their customers in experiencing enjoyment during what are difficult times for hospitability and hats off to them!! We would definitely come again and also recommend to others. Many thanks staff at Nunsmere for making a break away so special.

Travelzoo Sunday lunch voucher offer £39 for 2. Good menu choice (4 options for starters, main and dessert) plus glass of fizz. Good portion sizes, and good quality. Covid makes the experience a little different, with nothing on the table when you arrive. Only negative was that table-cloths removed from other tables after finishing detracts from the 'quality' of the surroundings.

Lovely surrounding and very good service from the staff. Smoked salmon mousse and Chicken terrine were excellent and beautifully presented. Our roast beef was rather tasteless as was the gravy, the roast potatoes, yorkshire pudding and veg were very good and sticky toffee pudding and ice cream were very good.

We were told to present ourselves for dinner at 7:35pm due to Covid-19 requirements. We arrived exactly at this time and were shown to our table 5 mins later. The table was loose and unstable and we asked if we could be moved to be rudely told there was no other table available. We ordered drinks but after 30 mins they had not arrived although guests on tables around us had been served drinks and their meal starters! We were being totally ignored on a wobbly table stuck in a corner away from other guests! At this point I became very upset as this was meant to be a special occasion. My husband approached the senior waitress to be told they were busy! I then went to reception and spoke to a gentlemen receptionist who apologised and agreed that our experience was totally unacceptable. When I got back to the table one on the waitresses was under our tablecloth trying to fix our table (without success) it was a total farce and other guests were showing their disapproval on our behalf leaving me embarrassed and in tears. We finally received our drinks and starters 45 minutes after arrival. The meal itself was very disappointing and definitely not gourmet! Portions were tiny and bland without flavour. The worst meal I have ever had in a hotel with 4* status. The waitress was rude and we just wanted to eat our food and get out of the restaurant and get to our room. No celebrations in the bar to follow as the night had been totally ruined. I cried so much when we did get back to our room as this was meant to be a celebration of our 30th Wedding Anniversary

Had to send scones back to the kitchen as they were rock hard, tge Teacups were white thick porcelain, China cups would have been more appropriate.

This was our second visit in the last couple of weeks although it was extra lovely last time as we stayed over. Food is always delicious here. Small portions but we prefer quality to quantity. Service good if a little slow but it was a busy night and we actually enjoyed taking our time with drinks before dinner. Covid rules spoil atmosphere a little however are very sensible.
