A very enjoyable experience staying at this hotel. The food was excellent, chateaubriand cooked to perfection and breakfast was excellent too. Restaurant service; received from Shirley, was exceptional, making our dining experience all that more enjoyable. We shall return for sure, the quality of food is something that people need to I experience too, cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you so much 😊

Staff were very nice but overstretches for the number of diners so impacted service, also the bill was wrong three times - probably due to how busy the team was

Really nice food and amazing value. It was very quiet as we were the first ones there, and as a result a bit lacking in atmosphere. It got better when a few more tables turned up but maybe some background music would be an idea? Service swift and efficient, and the sunday roast was really nice. All in all a good meal!

The food was lovely but the service was disappointing! We came for afternoon tea with bubbles, and had to ask for the tea and the bubbles as the food had been brought through and nothing else was being brought in! Then we had to ask for jam for the scones, at the bar, as no one was about. We would have ordered another drink but saw nobody and nobody checked on us, despite saying they would!

Sadly large group of male golfers took over. Loud and offensive. Difficult for staff to challenge. I am 63 year old male and yes, male groups can be overbearing.

Hi, I would really recommend Sunday lunch at Ogilvies's. The food was excellent and not served up piled on a plate where you take one look and think I can never eat that much. Really well done to all in these difficult times. Nick

We were staying at the hotel for a short golfing weekend break. A large table of male golfers ruined what would otherwise have been a lovely evening. The food was excellent, service fabulous. However, the large group were very loud, clearly with no consideration for other diners, with some unpleasant language. (won't go into detail) . Not what we had expected or hoped for.

The food was fantastic . Service also very good. The only thing that we had a problem with was that there were a lot of flies in the restaurant. Obviously there are flies around in the summer but maybe the doors would be better off closed.

Great place to have a nice relaxing lunch overlooking the golf course. Very friendly staff and we all enjoyed our menu choices, from the crab starter to sea bass and steak. Family friendly too.

A warm welcome despite a delay in our arrival. We were with our dog and so we ate our lovely breakfast in the bar rather than in the grill.

We were so pleased that you allow your front of house staff to sample the food. This meant that our lovely waitress, Caitlin, was able to recommend the risotto which I loved as much as she does. Such lovely staff and equally lovely food.

Inevitably, due to covid, the restaurant had been pared back to absolute basics and, as a result, it appeared austere and completely lacked atmosphere. Such a shame as on previous visits it felt warm and welcoming. The patio doors were wide open to achieve ventilation but on such a chilly day, it meant the room was very cold. Maybe it was also necessary in irder to dry the floor which oddly was being mopped when we arrived at 12.30. Service was very attentive, no worries there. Food wise, our roast lunches were lovely but having chosen and tried to eat the quite inedible mozzarella starter, I was surprised that no attempt to discount it from our bill was made. Whether that suggests no one senior enough was available to make that sort of decision or whether that would never be policy, I don't know. Ironically, if the item had been discounted, I would've refused it as I appreciate every penny counts for the hospitality industry at present. It was the fact that it wasn't offered that is disappointing.

Due to COVID this was our first eating out experience since being allowed since lockdown. The staff wore masks and there was hand sanitisers for customers. There was a limited menu but something for all. We had steak that was beautiful. We chose your restaurant as my husband has been on several golfing weekends at Thorpeness and said it was nice.
