About Fawsley Hall - Cedar Restaurant

With its rich heritage as a Royal Manor which has hosted many eminent guests including Queen Elizabeth I, Fawsley Hall offers a fascinating and unique setting for special occasions and dining.
Guests can enjoy a mixture of the traditional and contemporary, with classic afternoon tea in the Tudor Great Hall or modern British food in the award-winning Cedar Restaurant. Located on the ground floor of the South Wing, this space was built in the early 16th century and displays many hallmarks of the Tudor era, with a beamed ceiling, exposed brickwork and stone fireplace.
Our private dining rooms are perfect for intimate occasions, or the Tudor Bar offers a cosy retreat within which to eat a light lunch or indulge in a pre-dinner cocktail.

Overall. Satisfied, quantity & quality of food good but I don't think the idea of all the Roast being served up on one platter is a good idea- it looks great when first presented but if you are the last to serve it can look unappetising- better that each meal is plated with the offer of extra if required. The sides look good in individual dishes.Also I think long tables can isolate some guests if a large group- better if possible to provide more round tables.

Unfortunately our luncheon experience on Saturday 07 December 2019 was not as good as expected. The turkey dish on the festive menu was disappointing: it was lukewarm and the meat was dry without any extra gravy being provided. The vegetables were limited in variety and not warm enough. The starters and the desserts, however, were very good. One guest was not given the right dish and this resulted in him having to wait for his steak to be cooked while the other guests were eating. Another disappointing aspect was that the deposit paid at the time of reservation (several weeks ago) had not been deducted from the bill and this had to be rectified. Although the member of staff involved was very apologetic, this type of mistake shows a lack of attention to detail and can be embarrassing for all concerned. It is a shame because we usually enjoy going to Fawsley Hall (especially for its setting) and have been there many times over the years but on this particular occasion I felt we were let down by the service and some of the food. I am not sure if we will go again soon.

We arrived to find the electricity off. The bar staff were lighthearted and helpful about gen problem. As a group of 5, we opted for the sharing roast dinner. Unfortunately when the food arrived, the various components of the meal came out bit by bit without any plates to serve on to and by the time everything arrived it was cold. We asked for a fresh meal at which point the restaurant manager got involved and things were dealt with efficiently. Unfortunately, this did mean our meal took longer than planned and left us no time for pudding. I am not sure what the advantage of offering a sharing dinner is if it slows service down. It seemed like you had some new staff on that day. If this was the case perhaps more training/supervision is required.

Was a bit disappointed by some details. Sat by a window which really needed cleaning and was covered in cobwebs. The menus had food splashes on them. For a "handpicked hotel" charging £20 for a basic pie with just mash I expected better.

Rare steak was over cooked (medium) , our waiter was a little rude (insulting our wine choice) and for the prices paid >£175 for two persons I would have expected better service all round. However, the setting was lovely and the bar staff were good.

Superb Sunday roast, loved the choice of meat platter, melt in mouth beef, only slight let down was the Yorkshire pudding, it seemed like it was very over cooked, or as the waiter suggested it had been under the heat lamp most of the day as they get made earlier on!! But otherwise worth the money and I’d definitely have it again

I'm pretty sure the "hand cut chips" with our chateaubriand were oven chips.
