About The Bistro at Cornhill Castle
We’ve got a delicious choice of traditional favourites along with our twist on some European classics.
We hope you enjoy our new menu in our wonderful surroundings.
Lovely place, great setting, food really good, service excellent.
Lovely selection of sandwiches and cakes, more than enough for us all. Stunning location and very friendly and helpful staff.
Excellent Sunday lunch!
We enjoy visiting the Cornhill. However there are some small changes which would enhance the experience more. Use linen napkins rather than paper, have candlelight on tables (used tealight was in holder next to table), reduce overall lighting in restaurant to create atmosphere, offer bread rolls pre dinner, offer crackers or bread with the terrine (starter). Also the roast chicken was dry obviously having been cooked earlier in the day as part of the 'special'. Overall we do like the Cornhill but these small changes would definitely add to a more positive experience.
Breakfast buffet very basic no fresh prepared fruit e.g. melon or fruit salad no grapefruit juice and no fresh water . Evening meal no alacarte menu available as had had no deliveries of provisions poor excuse
Not the usual atmosphere as restaurant was very quiet
Room was cold. Pub food standard. Disappointing.
Food was very good and staff friendly and efficient. View from our window in dining room was lovely .
The place needs refurbishing,too dark, too dull, no atmosphere. The young waiting staff tried their best.
Had stopped going to Cornhill Castle due to several poor lunches. Afternoon tea was lovely though.
Very pleased with our visit. The surroundings are beautiful.
The meal and service was excellent. The only (minor) gripe was that the private dining room was actually open to the next door reception room, with voices and conversations overheard, which was slightly less than private.
Everything was excellent. Very professional and friendly staff . Thank you
The curtains at our tables where every dusty and old & the window ledge hasn’t been wiped down there was some dust and a few flys on it. The food was amazing, the staff were lovely but the decore need updatinf and cleaning.
Excellent food, service and surroundings. Only comment to make was that 2 out of our 5 pre-dinner drinks arrived once we had left the bar area and were at our table.
A really enjoyable meal in pleasant surroundings served by friendly helpful staff
We are going to try to go out to the Cornhill Castle every month with friends,.You could start a Friends Night say once a month with either 10% discount or better still what we got on 3rd September 2018 was crusty bread with oil +? which was really a very nice touch. Also, you Staff were on the ball very very good.
Really enjoyed our evening meal in a very intriguing castle.
Had the afternoon tea and service was fabulous. Everything was so fresh, looking forward to trying out more of the menu.
Quiet night probably affected the atmosphere Service was fine, friendly and very polite, but we weren't given bread (side plates and butter suggested that we should have been) and we asked for jugs of water and had to wait a long time for them. Petty complaints really on what was a very good night and good eating out experience
Service was a little bit slow at times. Otherwise a very pleasant experience.
Very good location
Lovely venue and the afternoon tea with cakes was delicious
To clarify the ratings above, we found the meal we had in the Bistro very disappointing - we both ordered the 10oz ribeye steak from the chargrilled section of the menu, which being priced at £25, was expected to have been of restaurant standard, which this was far from. The meat seemed significantly below 10oz, was 1cm thick, and had not been chargrilled (the appearance was rather wet and grey). The accompanying elements were also below par - a fully raw tomato, oil soaked mushroom and questionable handcut chips. We appreciate the Bistro is not a steak restaurant but for that price we had expected food above pub quality, and this was significantly far from the mark. The overnight stay was pleasant, the service good and staff excellent - but to deliver the full package the food needs to be greatly improved.
the fridge in the room was great would be good to make people aware of this as it’s good to have
