Accompanied by our carefully picked wines and seamless impeccable service, you will wish to return very soon. Open 7 days a week for Lunch and Dinner
A delicious Sunday lunch served by friendly, efficient and professional members of staff. The food was superb but a few more vegetables and jus are needed. These are very inexpensive and only accompanied the roast! Thank you
The food and stay was top notch from start to finish. We enjoyed the cocktails in the bar!
A wonderful place to stay. We had the 'Romance' package and can't think how it could have been improved. It was great value and the service from all the staff was brilliant. We now have to find another excuse to visit Greyfriars to repeat such a great experience.
We wanted to sit outside but it was a tad cold... would have been nice to be offered the use of a patio heater. Also we came in to eat but when we returned outside all the cushions had been removed and it was only 4.30
Really lovely afternoon tea, generous portions and very tasty. The staff were very accommodating, changing sandwich choices and keeping us well supplied with tea then boxing up cakes we were too full to eat for us to take home.
Excellent food and service will definitely return
Run out of a main on a short menu. Bar was a little chaotic couldn’t get a seat for a pre dinner drink.
What a great venue, we had a fab time. 1 small criticism, we called ahead to enquire if our son could wear shorts to the restaurant and was advised that we would not be allowed to dine if any member was wearing shorts but we would be able to dine on the patio. When we were in the restauraunt there was a diner in there wearing shorts.
Great service lovely food Can’t really fault it !
Highly recommended venue for afternoon tea!
Had an afternoon tea here. Everything was delicious and the service was very attentive. The menu is flexible and the staff showed good awareness of two allergies in our party. Only small gripe is that you cannot buy a voucher for an afternoon tea that includes Prosecco or champagne. You order that when you arrive however when the voucher is a gift I think it would be nice for it to show it’s a “sparkling” afternoon tea.
Service yesterday lunchtime was excellent - very professional. Better than for my last 2 visits.
Fantastic environment, attentive staff and amazingly tasty food with a fab modern twist.
First time very impressed,lovely atmosphere lovely setting outside,staff smiling and very helpful
We don’t come very often but when ever we do we are never disappointed. I work in catering as well and this hotel is exactly what I expect. Well done
Thank you for a lovely afternoon. Service was amazing in lovely surroundings.
Waited in restaurant at appointed time for waiter to appear then waited at end to pay - could hear them chatting behind closed door but didn't come out to serve
When we arrived for our booking at 8.30 we was told the kitchen closes at 9, so we was rushed in and out
We had afternoon tea.The service was first rate.This is a smart hotel with lovely furnishings.The staff were friendly and attentive.The food was great and we were even offered extra sandwiches !! Perfect
Service was excellent and very friendly. Only issue I have is there is no signage out the front of the hotel indicating where the car park is. I drove past the turning on the first attempt and had to go all the way round the one way system to get back it was pure luck and my excellent sence of direction that I managed to find it at all.
GreyFriers where very helpful to adjust the menu fror my vegan and vegetarian family. Many thanks for a great afternoon tea.
Such a lovely afternoon tea and in such a smart place, it feels like a grand city restaurant without the hassle of travelling there!!
Lovely meal and evening - we would love to return. Thank you for making a birthday dinner special
