The food was excellent however the service was very slow, we were left waiting for long periods without drinks, asked if we’d like to see dessert menus before we’d received our mains and listened to the bar manager chastising staff in the middle of the restaurant. This would be a great dining experience if your staff were more attentive and on the ball.

We had 2 night stay in one of the Suites, and attended the Black Tie Dinner and Entertainment over the new year. The evening was very good but the food wasn't upto standard, a bit cold and bland. That being said, we did enjoy the entertainment and atmosphere. We were esecially impressed with Ros in Hatherways Bar, who was very friendly and attentive. Gratful if you would pass on our thanks to her. We were suprised that the suite only had one bottle of shampoo and no spare towels. Not the end of the world but we did spend a lot of money on the 2 day break. We went into the spa for a very short time as there were lot's of children, who were not being properly supervised in addition to using the sauna rooms. One of the children was spitting on the floor in the steam room, hence why we left early. The website did say that children were not allowed in during certain times, but it appears that this was wavered for the day, they were also not supposed to be in the steam or sauna rooms if under 16, but it appears this was not challenged by staff. All in all a pleasant say and would come again.

Excellent value for money and a lovely place for a family meal. The beef was too rare though and had to go back to the kitchen for further cooking.

Awful experience. Very slow service for both lunch and dinner. The quality of food was extremely poor and not very overpriced for what you actually got. The cottage pie had instant mash on top and the kids pizzas were not like any pizza I have ever seen - it was like a thick slice of bread with some cheese and tomato on top! Kids ordered desserts and the chocolate sauce was separated so the chocolate was on the bottom with a watery layer on top. Very disappointed and would not recommend this pub.

Had a lovely tasty meal. Our waitress Elizabeth was polite and attentive. All was great until we ordered the coffees.The waiter who delivered them, firstly was asked about why the celery and potato soup was brown. Instead of saying he didn't know or offered to ask we got a comment "maybe they put brown sauce in it.." Is this a suitable comment for the customer? Following that the coffees looked like the cups had been washed inside but not out. Either badly poured and splashed coffee over the side or they really weren't clean. Then to top it off. 4 biscuits included but were all on one saucer which was required for the coffee so halfway through serving the coffee, he is moving the biscuits around with bare hands. No gloves on or pair of tongs. Very unhygienic. Its a shame as most things are remembered at the end and while the food and waitress were excellent, we are more likely to remember the quite rude and unhygienic waiter at the end

When we arrived we were told to sit anywhere and I got the impression that my booking was lost! It was fine in the end as there was ample space in Hathaways Bar and we managed to eat. Food was ok, nothing special. Service was ok, young lady was friendly enough.

Service was very slow, we had to keep chasing food and drinks. Young server behind the bar was polite and helpful, if a little slow, needs more training in how to use coffee machine.

We had a very disappointing Sunday lunch here which was to celebrate my 70th birthday with my family.The room was cold when I complained the manager said he had just switched the heating on at 1.30 on a cold day and even though we had confirmed our booking the day before.It didn’t help that we were seated right next to a door which was constantly opening as it was the only access to the bar for staff and guests.The service was very slow even though the restaurant wasn’t very busy.The food was a very poor standard.Three of us chose the beef because the menu stated that it could be cooked to ones liking and carried a supplement of £2.95 per person.But clearly the chef couldn’t cook it to the individuals liking as we all requested well done but my sisters came quite rare and bloody and another guests was cremated. I thought the meal lacked flavour and I would have expected the vegetables to be served in separate dishes in a 4star hotel! I don’t think any of us will be coming back soon

I felt the presentation and food let TV e afternoon tea down here. The metal of the stand was rusty and not appealing. Sandwiches felt a bit dry on the outside and aside from the med veg one, they were very basic. One was just plain cheese for instance. The cakes were all very uneven in size and cut into really thin slices. We were also put in a room on our own and there was no music, the atmosphere was definitely lacking. Overall I wouldn’t come back here again.

Arrived to find we had no reservation despite confirming it earlier. Staff were very pleasant and accommodating as there were spare tables. Food good and arrived quickly despite the bar being busier than usual. The background singer, Sophie, was very good

The food was ok for the money. Ok choice and cooked nicely. The cheeseboard for dessert was disappointing though, not presented nicely, small amount of chutney and no butter or grapes. Very basic. The staff were really friendly and nice they just appeared to be a bit overwhelmed by how busy the pub was, although most people seemed to be staying at the hotel so not sure why they would be surprised. The biggest issue by far was it was very cold in there! Moved into the other bar as soon as we could which was still not warm but a bit better.

Cannot fault the cleanliness of the room, however having booked this hotel and being under the impression that this was a 4* hotel, I am perplexed by this rating. Having eaten in Hathaway’s bar, the atmosphere was worse than a wake, the service was pretty non-existent, taking almost 20 minutes to have an order taken when we were told ‘they would be right over’. Secondly the food was diabolical, bland and tasteless I’ve had better microwaveable meals which were far less depressing, cost of the meals were nothing short of a rip off! The quality of the food was appalling, cheap and just makes the hotel look like they are cutting costs. Then breakfast, pretty much the same regurgitated cheap products and nothing that made the hotel stand out from a Premier Inn. Overall not value for money and will not be returning or recommending.
