As I had been recommended this place for a business lunch near Heathrow, I was disappointed to find this is a conference hotel and the restaurant atmosphere is reminiscent of a motorway service area - a shame, given the beautiful surroundings. The food quality is good, but the presentation is dire - we arrived at 1.45 and the buffet had been largely destroyed by previous diners, and was never subsequently refreshed. The hot food had all "seen better days" and the person in the kitchen was surly and unhelpful. I brought a Spanish business contact for a lunch meeting and the worst thing is that the food demonstrates all that used to be wrong with British cuisine - and here, still is. It is obviously popular with local retirees who enjoy a cheap plentiful lunch and are unfussy - if you don't fit that category, don't bother.

I was asked if my lunch booking was special occasion as it was my sisters birthday they bought a lovely desert with candles , my sister was very pleased , as member of The spa I was able to use my 2 for one voucher,also offered a free bottle of wine.the only downside was the seat cushions where we're very stained.wouldnt expect this in a Four star hotel.

We had the best lunch yesterday than we have had before and it is always excellent but yesterday the food excelled. The roast pork was brilliant along with all the great vegetables. We had a hard choice. And then there was the puds, my husband was in heaven!!!

We have been visiting the Leftbank for many years and we always love it. For us this experience and our last was really poor and the whole place has gone down hill. The food is not labelled up so you have to ask what everything is as they are not labelled and the the chef was not very welcoming to every question of what each dish was as he must get asked so many times by everyone. The fish I took was full of bones which was not highlighted and I had to leave it to one side as there were large and small bones and I couldn’t eat it. I called Gosia over the main restaurant lady and explained this to her as I was really concerned to how many children were in the restaurant and they could choke she just went over and told them about it but no sign was put up on the counter to warn you. What about the next family coming in? I felt the hygiene was really poor and when the chef handed me a plate and his thumb nail was so long it was in my food this just turned my stomach it was very very long and did not look clean. I was so very very disappointed and sadly we won’t be coming back. You need to sort out hygiene, staff customer service and MOST IMPORTANTLY LABEL up the food especially for people who have allergies as you could be sued!

We had a lovely family lunch in Left Bank on Sunday. The selection of starters is fantastic, all fresh and a huge variety. The roast lamb was delicious and the puds were great too. Only suggestion would be to add some vegan options. These were a bit limited. Service was very attentive.

We have visited on several occasions and the food choices are excellent! Service is good but feel it could be much better for a 5 star establishment. I do also think it would be nice if a tea or coffee were included in the price. On the whole we do like eating here and it is worth the trip.

I arrived early by 15 minutes but was told that I would have to wait for my table until the exact booking time even though the restaurant was empty. The service was terrible; they forgot our coffee order and were too busy chatting to notice that we wanted our bill.
