Staff were courteous but maybe not as polished as the venue deserves. More training and confidence instilled in them especially the younger ones could be time well spent. For example knowledge of the menu and something as simple as the jam flavour and explaining what has been presented to you(sandwich and cake flavours) would be a step in the right direction.

Food was really good and we feel a big selling point. However, service really let the restaurant down. The oak room wasn’t particularly busy, and there appeared to be 3 waiting staff working, but we waited a long time to have our starter taken away, for our main to arrive etc. When we wanted to get the bill at the end of the dinner we waited close to 15 minutes to be noticed! We went close to £300 for the two of us for dinner and we don’t feel the service was up to scratch to match that price. No one ever came to top up our wine (we had 2 fairly expensive bottles of wine) Quite disappointing as the food is extremely good.

Disappointed. After several afternoon teas at woodlands Park this was by far the worst Sandwiches were ok but nothing special Scones were lovely but we used to have lemon curd and rose jam. So were disappointed when only one little pot of a mixed berry jam came out Cakes were stodgy not pleasant on the pallet Hubby ate his share as he was hungry but I didn’t Had to wait ages on a server actually showing face in the room once they had initially served us to ask for more cream and jam Think we will have to find another venue for afternoon tea as it’s not walkathons it was a year ago

We booked on-line for the summer lunch offer / menu, and were disappointed when we found out that our booking was too late for the kitchen team. However, the team made a fantastic effort to help us and offered us the bar menu instead, which we thoroughly appreciated. They looked after us perfectly during our visit. Thank you hugely !!

I booked the 2 for 1 offer.... still cost £88 for 3 adults and 2 children so quite pricey. Food was nice but not ‘exceptional’ ... scones were really lovely but the cakes were nothing special. Staff were friendly and efficient. Thank you

We found the food of average quality and very unadventurous and uninspiring, we also found it expensive. The service was chaotic and rather poor, we asked for a bottle of wine when we ordered our food and had to request it again after our starters arrived. We weren’t offered bread rolls and had to ask for them, we requested glasses of water which were warm, there seemed to be plenty of staff milling around with no specific role. I’ve given it 2 stars as a nice young man called Kelvin was very helpful to us. I struggle to see how this is a 2 AA rosette restaurant. It’s a real shame as the hotel and restaurant are beautiful and there is so much potential for amazing food and service.

Lovely ambience, staff friendly. Overall a good experience but my friend and I had the same meal from the special sheet and both found that the gnocchi weren’t up to scratch. We were very disappointed. They were fried and fairly hard and quite greasy. I think they would be far tastier if they were freshly cooked in boiling salted water and then added to the green vegetables which were tasty. This would give a far fresher taste and a very soft gnocchi meal. We had squid for our starter which was very tasty. We were given the bill and had to wait a long time for it to be collected so in the end went to the reception area and paid there. We would go again but maybe ask more questions about the food before we order.

The sandwiches were dry and so were the desserts. The scones were fresh and lovely. There were not many people dining so the atmosphere was lacklustre. There was no background music. Service was terrible. There was no waiter in the room. We needed tap water and when we finally found a waiter, she said yes but the water never came. After we were served the afternoon tea, the waiter never came again to ask if we wanted our tea topped-up or if we needed anything. Extremely disappointing!

Good choice although some menu options a little over priced. We were the only diners in the restaurant so service was very efficient but no atmosphere.

Due to the low bookings, staff seemed low and inexperienced in the oak room and the service suffered. Not the fault of the attending waiter, he did his utmost best and should have been overseen better, we felt the corporate event effected this.

The food was most definitely style over substance, the flavour of the starter (beetroot and goats cheese) wasn’t balanced at all, couldn’t taste the beetroot and the goats cheese was so over powering taste stayed for ages even through main meal. Service was good if not at times a bit uncomfortable. Wine was ok, overall over priced for what it was. Main meal chicken was cooked superbly but the additions were boring and didn’t really add any flavour

It took over 30minutes to get a glass of water and the drinks we ordered. Despite having called 2 days earlier about a vegetarian request the waitress was completely oblivious to this and declared that “vegetarian dishes are difficult to make” and what is on the menu is all they had, which turned out to be incorrect after 2 checks with “someone”. When the difficult vegetarian options had been confirmed they had already been chosen for us as a starter and main, there was no choice involved. The starter of beetroot and goats cheese was bitter and sour making it inedible. The main dish was cold. The water glasses smelt of dishwasher water. Really a very poor experience from a 2AA rosette restaurant.

We booked the promotional lunch at £25 for two courses for two people. However, we were charged £25 per person (double the correct price). Fortunately this error was corrected when we queried the bill.

The sandwiches were a little dry. When paying there was no staff so had to go to hotel reception and ask them to find someone. It was clear staff had been smoking when they finally presented the bill to pay - not pleasant. A member of staff should be present at all times but they weren’t
