All our food is freshly prepared and whether you are dining in our Gilbert’s Restaurant, Library Bar,enjoying an Afternoon Cream Tea in the Drawing Room, or dining on our terrace, expect a modern outlook on classical food with a commitment to quality ingredients and depth of flavour. For us, great food is not just about accolades, it is about consistently producing fabulous food from the best ingredients.
Attractive traditional setting. No obtrusive music or over-loud guests. Service was pleasant and polite.
Sadly none of the staff seemed confident of procedures. One main arrived after two in the party had finished. No petit fours arrived with the coffee.
The food is lovely here and you cannot fault this in anyway. The hotel is old and has history behind it which makes the atmosphere lovely. The service is not the greatest, the staff eithe over compensate and ask you too many times if your ok and need more tea or avoid you like the plague. I would go here again as the afternoon tea really is lovely!
We had a great time. Food at the restaurant was fabulous and staff were more than helpful
A very enjoyable afternoon for whole party
We found everything just perfect. Can find no fault in anything.
Good service with great food as always. Disappointed to be told in the library bar they don't do cocktails
A super meal served attentively, but not intrusively, in a gorgeous setting - thank you
The fact that there is no internal walkway from the main hotel to Gilbert's restaurant is really annoying when it is raining. Why can't you create a canopy around the outside at least?
The service and food are excellent. Staff go out of their way to be friendly, efficient and helpful.
We greatly enjoyed your new menu.
Always efficient and friendly service with a willingness to make changes to accompaniments on main courses.
3 of my guests of a party of 5 ordered sirloin steaks but the restaurant only had 2, these were asked to be cooked medium and yet both were served well done and over cooked. These were sent back which meant now there were no sirloin, instead butterfly fillets were served which again were over cooked and well done. How any decent chef could possibly cook 4 steaks wrong is beyond me. It was very embarrassing to my Oriental/Asia colleagues. Location and service was excellent but the chef a disaster. The Manager did not charge for the 2 wrong steak meals but the damage was done and we ended an early evening meal promptly. Would not recommend for business meals.
A lovely experience. Thank you
The staff were fantastic! They were extremely helpful as well as knowledgeable. The food was excellent, we will definitely be back.
my friend and I had an enjoyable time.... she especially enjoyed the garden.... just a pity we were a little too late for the roses !
We had a wonderful experience for our colleagues leaving do. The service was faultless and the cream tea was excellent value for money. Many thanks.
The afternoon tea was vey nice but I did think the sandwiches could have been a little more delicate instead of a large slice of bread with smoked salmon on, and a roll with something in but could not decide what. The rolled up one with cucumber was very stringy . Scones and cake were good. Plenty of tea kept coming.
We were very unhappy with the service and food. Firstly you tried to put us in the dark and dingy alcove of the fireplace, then next to a large loud crowd. Finally we were placed in a room off the bar. The cream cheese and cucumber sandwich had no cheese and soggy cucumber. The smoked salmon and cream cheese only had a small piped blob of cheese on top, clearly, you had run out of cream cheese and the egg mayonnaise could not be found in middle of the bun, just a little spread around the edge. The jam and cream pots had just been refilled from previous use and not washed in between. There was a Jammie finger print on the outside of the cream pot. We were totally ignored apart from staff peering at us from the doorway and we had to go to the bar and request more tea. But as soon at it was time to pay, we had the attention of 3 members of staff. A very disappointing visit that we would not want to repeat and will advise our friends to avoid at all costs.
The staff are fantastic, friendly and VERY helpful. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. Lovely atmosphere and surroundings, beautiful grounds and building.
What a haven of tranquility. No music and excellent food in this delightful place. Cosmin waited on us to perfection. Afterwards a walk in the superb grounds completed a perfect day. Look forward to our next visit
Very Good and service was good
My only comment on an otherwise wonderful lunch was the vegan option. I have found increasingly that it is assumed that vegans like quite spicy food so I (and the other vegan) found the sauce only just on the side of bearable. Also why don't vegans qualify for protein in their food - tofu or beans or nuts etc? I'm just making this comment for your future vegan diners. Thank you.
Catered for everyone’s allergies very well!
Excellent service, and well-positioned table with a superb view of the gardens. The food was elegantly presented. I did find my curry dish was a little too spicy but that did not detract from a very enjoyable evening.
