Service was very very slow, despite the restaurant being pretty much empty. As a table of 15 we were served after two tables turning up after us. Not our fault we were there before them, surely we get served first? Roast dinner was acceptable, but meat overdone and not much in the way of veg. Extra veg brought out after everyone had finished eating.

The menu that is advertised on NYL website is not actually available and I would not have booked this resturant if I had realised. The menu on offer is very nice however not suitable for my parents. Having said that the food we did get was lovely and the service is excellent. I have eaten at NYL a few times and have always received great service. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Express lunch is very good value the only negative would be that the baguettes were a little bit too crusty so next time we are going to have the toasties.

Service was great, drinks were lovely. Ordered 2 American style afternoon teas in advance (one veggie). Only meat options came out which the server apologised for and gave us a free round of drinks while we waited for the chef to make a veggie option. We were a disappointed with what they brought - 3 small bruschetta’s with different toppings - as we thought it was going to be American style like the meat version. Apart from that everything else was great.

I came here with my mum on Thursday for the first time. The staff were absolutely amazing - thank you Sam, Kelsey and our waitress (sorry didn’t catch her name) plus the two guys working on the bar. We went for the small plates which were absolutely delicious and couldn’t resist the dessert and cocktail menu. Thank you all for making it such a lovely night. I have recommended it to everyone and would definitely be coming back here soon.

Cocktails here are brilliant, staff are really friendly and accommodating but the afternoon tea just lacked something, the selection wasn’t as good as other afternoon teas I’ve had and I feel some items should be switched out to improve it.

More choice needed for hot brunch menu for food . My pizza was great but my friend’s steak and eggs didn’t look very filling or appetising. Gin and tonics were great though

I visited the Hotel and Bar on Saturday early evening, to eat and watch the Champions League Final. The Bar was restaurant were comfortably populated and got then got even busier nearer kick off time. My two friends and I order food prior to the game and drinks through the duration of the match and despite the pressure on the bar staff due to the number of people there, they continued to provide a friendly and efficient service with no long wait for our orders - nothing was too much trouble to them and they made our night even more enjoyable. Will definitely return and highly recommend the hotel and facilities.

Thanks to Kelsey and everyone for a great night at my daughter's hen party. Excellent service and easy to liaise with beforehand for the requirements of a large group -some with special diets. Lots of compliments about the food and cocktails and everyone had a lovely time. Would recommend, especially for a large party .
