Wonderful staff in a beautiful decor and the food has been excellent on both occasions.
Very disappointed- will not be back. Terrible experience. I was bringing my friend for her birthday and I was treating her. To list a few things - the chips were covered in salt! Two different waiting staff trying to take my friends plate of food before she was finished with her main course and then again with her dessert. It wasn't like we were there long because we had to go back to lunch so we were an hour at max. Really bad for such a nice hotel. Then to crown it all off the waiter came with the bill in the folder but he announced the amount of the bill so my friend could hear - really not appropriate because he knew it was my friends birthday because he had wished her a happy birthday! I have been in the restaurant a couple of times but I won't be back - very disappointing. I thought it would be a lovely place to bring my friends for their birthdays but not now
The interiors are lovely but the lobby is a little drafty and cold as people keep coming and going through the front door. The staff are incredibly helpful and attentive and I cannot fault them on anything. They gave us extra sandwiches as my friend was still hungry and we brought some home as well. Overall, we had a really relaxing and pleasant experience and by the end of our afternoon tea we were ready to nap on the couches!
Lovely lunch with great service and delicious food! Thanks!
I brought my friend for lunch and it wasn’t busy and we were on our lunch from work. The service was so slow I had to get up a couple of times for service. Our waiter was more interested in joking with us which we found annoying and he wasn’t funny. The food then wasn’t very hot, we asked for tap water and we got a jug of sparkling water. Pity because this could be a great spot especially for special occasions
We booked afternoon tea for my mum's birthday and it was a really lovely experience. One of our guests had a special dietary request of no eggs and Craig the supervisor made every effort to accommodate her, even phoning in advance to offer that she could order form lunch menu instead as there was more suitable options there and he also offered a kids menu also for our 2 year old guest. The chef made special egg free sandwiches and deserts for our guest which was very much appreciated and our little guest was provided with crayons and paper to do some colouring so we could enjoy our food. The tea selection was very good with plenty of choices and no extra charge for those who wanted a coffee instead. Overall very good value in a beautifully decorated relaxed, clean environment with excellent service. Would definitely return and recommend!
The food was amazing and the staff were very attentive and quick to serve even during the lunchtime rush. I would definately recommend it. Thanks again
Dinner menu is very limited
Such a festive,warm,friendly atmosphere- staff and hotel were amazing,would definitely go back and definitely recommend
Lovely evening very relaxing
Excellent service from the staff. The decor is beautiful. Lovely place to eat. The food was perfect.
We had a celiac in our group of 4 and I was given advanced notice of what would be on offer for a celiac friendly afternoon tea. The team were absolutely amazing with accommodating us in such a lovely way. We really enjoyed our day - thank you!
Staff were lovely but atmosphere very poor. Service slow and it wasn’t busy. Pity because it could be a super spot!!
I had lunch in Elle's Yesterday. Form the minute we arrived into the Bar, to the impeccable service, it was a great experience. Food, Service, Staff and even the Christmas Decorations were great. Would highly recommend it.
Great food, great service, lovely location. Would highly recommend.
We received a first class experience for our afternoon tea from the minute we entered the hotel. We were greeted with a warm welcome and presented with champagne. The food, drinks and desserts were expecting and our server was so nice and very friendly and chatty. Al
Service was overall professional and friendly (although, upon arrival, I was greeted with ‘oh yes you’re late’, despite having called in advance). Food was average, wine was ok only but staff were willing to let us try different options on the wine list.
Amazing food and great service
Great afternoon, service was great, staff were very attentive,
Great choice of lunch menu.
food was excellent. Not much choice for dessert though. I tried to email after making my initial booking as I needed to change the numbers. No-one responded. And the email didn't appear to make it to the Bistro as the girl that greeted us wasn't aware of the addition to the group.
The Charcuterie board was delicious. Lots on it - enough for 3 or 4 people to nibble on . We had the house white which was really light and tasty and the service was excellent.
Very impressed with our first visit and we’ll be back soon. As we were the only diners for lunch the atmosphere was quiet but a very pleasant retreat on what was a busy match day in the city. Cocktails on the sunny terrace were a lovely way to finish our day!
