This is the perfect space for a conference, product launch, book launch, private celebration or glamorous drinks reception
Decor was great. Everything else needs work. The food was nothing special and overpriced. The service was quite poor, with the exception of the host. Staff were polite but it’s quite evident that more training is needed. No cocktails available on the day as the one Barman who could make them was sick - which is completely understandable but I would have thought more than one member of staff would be trained in cocktail making. Disappointing all round.
Thank you Naomi for all your help and service and look forward to making another booking in the near future
Beautiful hotel. Extremely spacious. The staff in the hotel are very approachable and welcoming. The food was perfect and great value for money. It really didn't feel like a hotel restaurant. We could sit and relax after our meal. The outdoor area also looks FAB. Looking forward to going back for brunch.
I think the food was very average and I was overall disappointed. The food was also over priced for what we got.
Lovely group lunch - service was excellent, thank you.
The garden terrace is fabulous and the food and atmosphere were great.The service was fantastic,staff were really friendly and helpful
Excellent food. Attentive staff. Will definitely be back
Bar was empty on a Sunday? Yet service was slow. Food was mediocre
Such a beautiful garden terrace. The staff were so friendly. One of the waiters was so bubbly and talkative. Helped take photos of myself and my sister for us and also surprised us with cake for my birthday which was such a kind gesture. Thank you very much for the lovely service :)
We were there for brunch on a Sunday. The food was really nice and it was served quickly. However, the place was lacking atmosphere, there was no music and there was only one of two more tables.. once we were served and finished our meal/ drinks we waited ages to be looked after for the bill. Staff was friendly but overall, we were a bit underwhelmed by the general atmosphere.. will have to make sure that next time I go it will be a bit livelier.
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.
