We have eaten in the Peers' Dining Room now on a number of occasions and know many of the staff by their first names so we are obviously fans. On this occasion the service and atmosphere were as good as ever and as Chef Devereux changes menu quite often there is always something new to experience but I feel some dishes work better than others, as you'd expect. For example, my wife's cauliflower and stilton starter and her British Harvest main with goat's cheese and beet ravioli, she thought excellent. I found my dishes - scallop and oyster starter and lemon sole main - a bit fussy and over-complicated for their own good with too much gel or jelly in evidence. Individual tastes were very good but there were just too many of them. A case of simpler being better. Excellent desserts as ever and very good value for money all round, even if the wine list could have a few more bottles under £40 perhaps. We're not all on Lords' expenses after all! Having said all that, we hope to be back in the spring when the dining room next opens to the public.

Slightly loathed to recommend to friends because the more I tell, the more will apply and we may not get through the ballot. The recent visit, with 4 friends who hadn't been before, was excellent. The food was as imaginative and fresh as ever and the staff were on their usual excellent form - entertaining and informative. We will be back next time - if selected!

My fourth visit to the Peers Dining Room and another wonderful afternoon. It feels a real treat to be there- but the great venue is not used as an excuse to stint on the food, which is excellent.

Today was the last day of this opening so I have saved my comments until today .This opening I have visited nine times and brought guests each time. I have also introduced other guests who now come with their guests. Every person in both categories feels as I do about the experience in all aspects that it is wonderful. The food is always an adventure as the chefs strive to produce dishes that amaze using British produce. Examples from the menu this time include the starter of Yorkshire wood pigeon comprising of the breast and a cofit leg spring roll along with a consomme and Autumn vegatables .The combination and flavours were wondrous. On the mains The Hereforshire beef comprising of a perfectly cooked roundel of beef accompanied by salt baked turning dripping potatoes wild mushroomsonce more provided a mixture of spices,herbs and fresh produce that excited the eyes,the nose and finally the taste buds in so far that each fork loads produced many mmms ! Desserts put the final blade in off completing the meal showing the skills of the kitchen. Thn, when one thought that the stomach could rest along with the coffees etc came the petit fours including exquisite versions of Turkish Delights, British nougat that did not stick to one's teeth and a wondrous chocolate ball containing liquide caramel. Never have so many people walked so slowly out of the exit to The Palace of Westminster. The wine list is incredible with wines at decent prices. The dining room is of course amazing with the superb paintings on the wall including a great portrait of Queen Elizabeth the first. The item that brings it all together on each and every day is the staff from those escorting to the waiters . The restaurant manager Pawer conducts the proceedings as a great conductor and the whole operation is flawless and wondrous to behold. If you have not been move heaven and earth to get on the list of invitees and sit back and enjoy . My final words are to say a massive thank you to all the staff who have made these nine visits along with all previous openings so incredible, offering such hospitality and service leaving a full snese of pride in our Democracy and The Palace of Westminster . The goodness that the staff produce reflects perfectly on The House of Lords. Long may these openings continue and hopefully see you at the next one

All staff are very polite, friendly and calmly attentive. The presentation of the food is beautiful and good quality, but most of all the fact we can only visit Peer's dining room a couple of times a year makes the occasion special. My husband and I always throughly enjoy dining here.

Scallops starter was tasteless. Beef main course was rather too small - needed 2 slices of beef.

We loved every course including the breads and the very different butters served with them & the petit fours. The technical detail of the cooking was amazing & the presentation so, so pretty. It was a joy to the eye as well as to the taste buds Do you have a Michelin star? All the staff were welcoming and efficient.

We enjoyed a fine lunch with a good choice of menu, served by very professional but friendly staff in a fine dining room in a beautiful and historic building. A lovely day, as a thank to my wife for looking after me through chemotherapy treatment. What more could you want.

We had a lovely time yesterday at The Peers Dining Room. The service was so friendly and helpful. We were a group of 10 and we all had a wonderful time. We loved that we never felt rushed to get through our meal. Was an afternoon to remember. Thank you
