Staff did not write down the food order which led to them forgetting that we had ordered a sweet. We eventually received this and whilst there was no charge it was a meanigless gesture given the discount we had already paid

Whilst the food was delicious the service was utterly appalling - we were served if you could call it that! by very untrained juniors, for both courses we had to ask for cutlery 3 times and I went in on the second occasion eventually whilst our food had sat outside getting cold for an age. There was TOTAL lack of cushions for the hard chairs, 4 to go around about 16 chairs! and only 2 umbrellas in a heat wave! Everything you asked these 2 young lads they repeated and seemed baffled by and then never came so had to ask again or took an utter age or was incomplete and they'd forgotten it!

We had a lovely lunch in a great setting with excellent service from the staff. We had a lovely mocktail Pimms created by Jordan and he was delightful in explaining how he made it. The home made bread was brilliant as in fact was everything else. Thank you all

Requested a vegan menu in advance. Chef produced a lovely starter and main. It was very good although could have been a little more filling!

We had a wonderful day at the Elenborough Spa yesterday. Greeted by such welcoming staff on arrival. Beautiful surroundings and outdoor pool. Food was outstanding. Will be visiting again. Thank you for a refreshing and amazing day.

I brought my wife for a surprise birthday lunch having seen the lobster & fizz offer on your website, knowing this would be a first lobster experience for us both and a good memory for her birthday experience. Unfortunately we were told that the lobster wasn’t on currently, despite it still appearing on the website as an option which was a huge disappointment for me. The service was however good (Lana was very polite) and the food was nice and well priced, but I doubt the fishfinger roll will hold the same memories I was hoping we would take with us when I booked.

I provided feedback on our visit on 30th June. However, just to say again that there is very little in the way of healthy options on the menu. It is also midsummer, so pie and mash, sausage and mash etc, all seems a bit autumn/winter. A few salad options would have been lovely. Also for what is essentially a pub experience, rather than a dining experience, the food is overpriced...£17 for fish n chips. I like Ellenborough Park as a hotel, the rooms are lovely, the setting beautiful and your staff are brilliant. But I think the Horse Box as it stands lets the overall stay down.You could do so much better.

Given the prices at The Horse Box, the menu is a disappointment. There are no healthy options. I tried to book the main restaurant prior to our stay at the hotel, but it was fully booked. I asked if the Horse Box did meals other than the fish n chips, pie & mash, burgers I saw on the sample menu and was told it did do other meals including fish. I booked in for two nights, my partner had the same meal both nights - pie and mash, I had the fish dish on the Saturday and then the same fish but with the peas and tartare sauce from he fish n chip menu the second night. Whilst the staff were pleasant I do think the cost of the meal combined with a lack of healthy options makes this a poor dining experience. Having said that breakfast options in the main restaurant are very good with lots of healthy options.

The food was excellent and the service impeccable. The hostess took time to offer to take a Birthday photo and was very friendly and helpful. It was a beautiful day so we sat outside which was lovely but could do with not looking out onto a car park!

Impeccable service, cosy restaurant with great decor. The food was faultless and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Will certainly be returning and would recommend.
