Critics Review
Review by Manchester Confidential's Mark Garner
19.5/20
The food here is classic French with tickles, the tickles are only there to put a couple of fingers up to the new wave chemists. You would be happy taking dinner on a tray right there. The people serving you are outstanding. The wine list sets your hair on end. I mean, a 1964 Dom Perignon? This is Ian Fleming territory. Michael Broadbent scored the year with five stars. There are over 1000 ‘bins’. Arguably this is the best for miles and miles, representing a staggering £3m investment. Simon Radley has been chef for over eleven years with a couple of short breaks in between. He and Mark Bevan, the manager, run the place with passion, verve and a clarity of purpose that had Gordo in mind of some of the best chateaux in France in their heyday of the eighties.

First time and really enjoyed the experience. The food was amazing and attention to detail and the staff were exemplary. I don’t really like rooms without windows and confined spaces and thought a top notch restaurant would have been better positioned within the hotel.

My wife and I entertained our eldest son and his partner together with our youngest, who came over on a flying visit from the USA, to a celebratory evening meal. It could not have gone better. Friendly staff attended to our every need and the food and wine was perfect. We will return.

We had a wonderful evening celebrating our anniversary. We had the Tasting Menu and opted to have the Flight of Wine that had been matched to the courses. Each course was beautifully presented and the combination of flavours exquisite and enhanced by the wine. I have a good allergy. It usually causes amusement but is irrelevant. However, this time there was rhubarb (embarrassing allergy) was on the menu. We were asked about allergies and a prompt solution arranged to replace the course co raining rhubarb with no fuss. All the staff were attentive but not overwhelming. Ryan who presented the wines was well informed and gave the information in a friendly way. At the end of the meal as we retired to the bar for coffee it was accompanied by chocolate cigars and a chocolate plaque saying Hapoy Anniversary. A perfect and considerate end to a lovely meal.

Superb service and attention to detail from the serving staff, they have got the subtle art spot on, of knowing when to assist and when to let you enjoy your meal! Great wine choice on the wine flight and superb narration and information from the team. The tasting menu also didn't disappoint, delightful tastes, and fantastically fresh ingredients. A great dining experience!
