Food was so much better than when we last visited, the service was slow at first but did improve, but like I have always said the waiters are always lovely professional , I do love the staff so much, thankyou so much for your offer to regain my faith in the food . You really tried but we were not asked of any dietary requirements, we had our son who is vegan and can’t eat cauliflower or broccoli, but he just had the potatoes and shared the vegetarian gravy , so the way forward is to improve on asking and providing more options .i did ask for more carrots but that never came I think there should be more questions , as I didn’t realise that the vegetables were the only two my son is ilergic to. But we were happy that the dinner was cooked so much better , and the staff were lovely , so thankyou

Slow service but it was very busy. Beautiful building and surroundings. Lovely friendly waitress and the quality of food was excellent.

We had a lovely evening with incredible food and service. We couldn’t fault a thing, and the birthday platter of desserts for my boyfriend was a thoughtful gesture. Thank you ever so much!

We were invited back to Lythe Hill as guests and throughly enjoyed our Sunday roast. The meat was delicious and was accompanied by lots of veggies, roast potatoes, gravy and sauces. I would have rated the meal a 5 as it was excellent, but I think they forgot to bring us our Yorkshire puddings!

Due to a wedding party staying breakfast seemed a little chaotic. Staff were extremely busy and struggling to keep on top of everything in the way I expect they would usually. Dinner the previous night was excellent.

Appalling! I made a reservation online for a lunchtime roast for 5 people. We ordered our food and waited for an hour before we were finally told that they actually did not have enough food for all of us. Three people could have a eat but not 5 of us! We had to leave the restaurant having eaten absoluutely nothing! In addition to that, we were only offered a drink upon arrival and not again, meaning that we sat with empty glasses while waiting for our food. We were also told that the desserts we had ordered were no longer available. After we left, I was asked for my contact details so that the restaurant could get in touch to make it up to us.... well, that was last weekend and I've heard nothing from them since! I've tried to call twice to complain and no one has answered the phone! I would not recommend this restaurant based on our very recent experience!

The menu items are not exactly diverse and obviously it is quite a pricey place which is fine but for the money would appreciate more options other than that atmosphere was lovely and staff very friendly

My massage seemed to be done with someone who was inexperienced. There were not enough staff in the restaurant. My room wasn’t ready so ask if someone could ring me when it was I had to go back twice and no one rang. My card was taken to cover any extras when checking out used a different card and still waiting for my other card to be credited that’s two days

It was surprisingly quiet but even so, to only have one person apparently ‘doing everything’ meant service was slower than ideal although she did her best. Also it was advertised as a ‘carvery’, we booked for ‘carvery’, only to be advised (and not until we queried) that it was a ‘plated carvery’. A plated carvery is not a carvery! Still very good but didn’t seem as good as usual on the day. Needs better organisation and communication.

Aside from the lovely hotel grounds, the afternoon tea was generally poor. Staff were lack lustre and were not appropriately presented for such a setting, and even began ironing table cloths next to us whilst we were eating. We also had the head waitress delivering a lesson on how to set a table next to us. Both of these things should be done when there are not paying guests in the room. I was with a vegetarian and her sandwiches were placed on the same plate and in fact touching my meat/fish ones. This does not meet vegetarian food requirements. Looking around the dining area other tables had been given a greater variety of sweets than us and when we requested extra sandwiches, they messed up what we had asked for and then charged us and additional £2.50 for what equated to 2 pieces of bread with egg and cucumber fillings.

Food was good, but the service was very poor. Very slow, unprofessional, and pretty unfriendly. Very disappointing for a 90th birthday celebration. The dessert plate was a long time coming, and pretty minimalist too.

The buffet was excellent and all the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful; we all enjoyed ourselves very much and would certainly use you again if we need a venue for a similar function.

We booked a carvery (as your email confirmed) for Fathers Day but when we arrived it was a sit down menu meal and no explanation offered. The food was not served very well and was missing items (Yorkshire puddings) and some items were not available either. Not what we expected for a special day and the cost!

Pros: Staff are friendly, views amazing, hotel building looks great. Breakfast was nice. Cons: Spa is basic, no grounds to explore, no free fruit or mini fridge in room. Dinner was over priced. Of note: There was a wedding on when we went and the noise from the party was extremely loud. Had to listen to their music all night. Try to avoid being near this. @deancousin
