My party of 10 had lunch in the Cedar restaurant on Saturday 13th July. It was to be a special occasion to thank my family for supporting me during the past 3 years through serious illness and major operations. We started off in the Bar where we all had drinks. When the dining table was ready some of my guests had not finished their drinks and I was surprised and disappointed that the drinks were not taken to the table by one of the waiters as happens in all other upmarket restaurants we have dined at. Instead we ended up carrying our own drinks to the table, having to go down some steps to access the area.Two of the guests carrying drinks were well over seventy years of age! At the table wine was ordered and the waiter did initially pour out the wine but omitted to do so afterwards. One of the male guests at the table did this, as he did for the bottles of water on the table. The starters arrived which were all lovely, thank you. However one of the main courses did not arrive. It had not been passed to the kitchen and arrived 10 minutes later. An apology was given and a charge was not made for this meal which was very nice but I am sure you agree should not have happened in the first place. Desserts were ordered and again were very good indeed - thank you. However one of the guests did not order dessert as I had ordered a 'special plate' for her as a big thank you for supporting me during numerous hospital appointments. I had to excuse myself from the table and ask for it to be served. - disappointing. The bill for lunch was nearly £700 and for this amount of money I felt the service at Fawsley Hall was not up to its usual standard. It seemed that more attention was being given to the afternoon tea customers and not the dining customers. The dining area was certainly not busy, there were only two other parties eating besides ourselves. Sadly we were not given the attention expected and also not made to feel 'special' at all which was a great shame seeing as it is a beautiful place. Instead of leaving Fawsley Hall with the feeling of a beautiful experience we felt let down and disappointed. One of my guests even had to ask if there was a Lounge area to have our coffees and was just told 'there is a seating area outside or you could sit in the Conservatory at any table without a tablecloth on? We were not shown either area but left to our own devises to find them. We left shortly afterwards. To sum up - food was very good but the service offered to us was sadly lacking.

Excellent service, good food - scallops were very well cooked and excellent and lovely chateaubriand although slightly more cooked than we would have liked. Well presented and good wine list although our first choice on several times was not available. Very friendly staff.

Service was a bit hit and miss to be honest. Missing utensils when food arrived and being over-charged on the initial bill (and literally having to explain why three times that we only had two courses from the set menu) were two of the things I remember on the "miss" side. Food above average for sure, - the chicken breast being excellent, the chicken leg with it however appearing to be about 80% bone and sinew. Fabulous yorkshire puddings........

Food was excellent Howe not much on offer to stay within £35 allocated for 3 course meal via spa package! Very disappointed that lunch also had so many supplements, felt that there wasn’t much choice unless you pay more so it’s like having hidden costs to the trip. Wouldn’t recommend on that basis
