About Mottram Hall - Carrington Grill
Sitting at the heart of Mottram Hall, our recently awarded AA Rosette Carrington Grill combines relaxed informality with elegance and style. The grill is warm and inviting - the perfect place to entertain, do business, celebrate or relax with friends and family.
Simple, distinctive and generous, the menu celebrates the best seasonal, local produce with an emphasis on high quality cuts from the grill. Private dining is also available. Reservation only. Pre booking is essential.
On arrival seated quickly and greeted warmly and asked for drinks promptly. Drinks order had to be confirmed twice before they arrived. Food came out fairly quickly but service after that was a bit slow. No steak knife was offered until asked. Food was of good quality at a decent price no companints. We wanted dessert and waited a long time to order but nothing compared to how long we had to wait for it to arrive. Had to ask a waiter after 20 mins and came quickly after that. Overall lovely evening but could have been made better with more attentive waiters. But on leaving staff on the door kindly told us about where we could walk around the lake to finish off our evening.
Delicious food and good service
When your waiter doesn't know the basics eg what is soup of the day?, you have very little chance of getting it right. No countreau for a liqueur coffee, yet the bar can find a bottle? Seem to have a strange system whereby the person taking the order doesn't deliver the food and vice versa. This meant that when I ordered drinks from the "deliverer" of course they didn't arrive. Food passed across the table is not the way to serve! As a positive, the food tasted good. Definitely lacking in elegance or style.
Lovely restaurant service was a little slow especially when ordering a first drink, seemed a little understaffed although when served very friendly, not much variety on the food menu and a little overpriced for the portion size, steak was gristley, although breakfast in the morning was beautiful.
Lovely hotel in a beautiful setting. Hotel and spa were clean. Nice spacious room. Service was excellent throughout and staff were helpful and friendly. Only negative was the food, there was only one vegetarian option at Dinner and the breakfast buffet was poor. I’d expect a continental buffet and hot breakfast menu with food prepared fresh at a luxury hotel.
You should serve gin in balloon glasses !
We ordered the pate and it had paper in it no apologies
Had a great time at the spa, treatments were good and the atmosphere was very relaxing. The hotel was excellent the staff were friendly and the room was great, clean tidy and modern. The restaurant was great also, we booked the hotel as part of a deal so didn’t expect a great deal from the food. We were pleasantly surprised however, the food was delicious and the deal menu was very similar to the actual grill menu.
It was 20 minutes after being seated that I had to seek a waiter and ask when we would be served. During this period the waiter walked passed us a dozen times and didn’t acknowledge us once, not even just to say he would be with us shortly. After having to raise our dissatisfaction his first response was to immediately offer us a round of free drinks. I said it wasn’t about that and just wanted to place our order. The food was excellent but the experience was let down by the very poor service. Despite the offer of a free round of drinks, nothing was knocked off of our bill but we just couldn’t be bothered to ask. We will not return to Carrington grill. To add insult to injury, the next morning we stood queuing for 15 minutes for breakfast (which was supposed to be included in our package) to eventually give up and go eat else where.... awful experience for us I’m afraid.
Grill service very poor
Dinner was fantastic, and the staff were friendly and really quick to help. I had the chicken, and it is safe to say that it's the best chicken I'd ever had. I dined there for breakfast too, and loved the selection and quality of food and, again, the helpful staff. Highly recommended - thank you!
Generally good - food a bit rushed. Confusion around Champneys discount
I thought that with a name like Carrington Grill, the restaurant would be more up-market than it is. It is very informal and not what we were expecting for a romantic night out. The food was OK, except that the rib-eye steak was tough. The table service was acceptable except for the wine service, which was dreadful. I ordered a glass of red wine and it was just plonked down on the table with no comment from the wine waiter who then disappeared without a word. On asking for a second glass, it was delivered with the same total lack of charm but to the wrong table so we then had to go and rescue it. The restaurant manager, a young lady who comes from Poynton, was the only person who had any sense of professionalism. The same sense of an amateur approach also pervades the champagne bar, when we were told no olives or nuts were served with the champagne. Surely Mottram Hall you can do better than this ??? You need to initiate a serious training programme.
Had a wonderful meal with my wife at the Carrington Grill. The food exceeded our expectations. All of the dishes were thoroughly enjoyable. Special mention has to go to the duck breast and pork fillet mains which were perfectly cooked and tasted superb. Would definitely recommend.
Delicious food. The wine by the glass was over priced
Was the best part of our trip. The food was a credit to the chef. Thank you
Food was nice but a long wait for service
Inconsistent service, waiting a while at many points even just for a menu.
The hotel experienced a power cut during our stay preventing us from using the spa. As the spa was our reason for staying it was disappointing to say the least.
Lovely food, great service and pleasant staff, will be returning.
Very attentive and polite staff.
Great Spa, Swimming Pool, Hot Rooms and Sports facilities.Bedroom good size with modern bathroom.Buffet food only as at Xmas time.I requested a'la carte menu as dietary needs...the restaurant staff were obliging and cooked a meal from the menu.
food was on the £28 menu fine but restricted
