Food was very overpriced for what it was. A simple curry cost £18 and 4 small pieces of bread with butter was £5. My friend had gnocchi and it was nothing like gnocchi. 10 cubes of fried potato...very odd. Such a small portion size compared to the rest and most definitely not recognisable as gnocchi. Service was great, staff couldn’t have been more helpful. Interior design beautiful but could do with some louder upbeat music to improve atmosphere.

Disappointing that no one came to ask whether we were happy with our meal. Didn't leave a jug of water on the table - took it back to the bar. Gave us menus for dessert but never came back to take the order so after half an hour of waiting we left. Shame.

Should be given a wine bucket when purchasing a bottle of wine.

The meal for two was well executed and in one sense hard to criticise; that said having paid over £100 for 2 × 2 courses plus a bottle of wine, it was not exceptional. Waiters were attentive and enthusiastic, the obligatory jazz / blue grass played in the background. The main eating area is quite dimly lit but this is not really a romantic venue. If you eat on a day when the main restaurant is also open, upscaling is worth it for something more memorable.

Difficult to imagine that the food came from the same kitchen as The Restaurant at Ellenborough. Some dishes average (Ribeye steak) some very good (steak pie). Attention to detail missing. One dish should have had a duck egg....instead it was a hen's egg. Freshly baked bread was on the menu yet the bread arrived toasted!!?? Pea & Mint soup....mint so subtle that you did not know it was there????

Lovely food and attentive service. We had lunch there following a spa morning. The restaurant was quiet and lacked atmosphere but the staff were excellent.

The Service was very good, very attentive, however the food was a disappointment, the curry was extremely watery and looked like the rice had hardly been drained.

The food was ok but no better than a good pub serving food and it was at least twice the price £30.00 extra for two lagers and two glasses of wine would be ok if the food was special but it wasn’t
