Our Afternoon Tea in the Bow Room was a delightful, and extremely tasty, experience. Staff could not have been more helpful and the food could not have been better. My wife tells me that the choux pastry, lemon and chantilly filled, was excellent. Sadly she ate them both so I will never know. Thank you very much. A definite repeat!

We have been staying at Gray's Court for two nights, and had the five course tasting menu and pairing wines on one of the evenings. It was absolutely exceptional, one of the best meals we can ever remember having. The food was completely delicious, and although we got only small amounts of each course, we went away feeling absolutely full because it was all so flavoursome. The wines to complement each course were well chosen, and everything was explained to us by helpful, knowledgeable and charming staff. It was a thoroughly delightful evening, and made my husband's birthday very special. It couldn't have been nicer. Thank you so much for such a lovely evening.

Absolutely superb! Delicious food, especially the home-cooked breads, beautifully presented and exceptional service (thank you Tom in particular.) As good as any Michelin starred restaurant we have been fortunate enough to eat in. Will definitely be returning!

Truly outstanding dining experience, service from Kris and Ben was attentive, informative and they worked wonderfully as a team, excellent service delivered with humour, passion and knowledge. We arrived as guests, dined beyond our expectations, and felt we left friends behind at the end of the evening. Our sincere gratitude to chef and team.

We had a really fantastic experience at the Bow Room. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the food being served and each course was a pure delight. We enjoyed the tasters before being taken in to the dining room which is beautiful and very comfortable.

We absolutely loved our meal at the Bow Room. The staff made us feel so at home and welcome (we were staying at the hotel) and particularly Stefano, who provided us with such a unique and amazing wine pairing throughout the entire evening, left us utterly amazed. The food was unique and a real experience which was only enhanced by the intimate dining room and service. Thank you so much, we will definitely be returning!

Our visit to your hotel and restaurant was a very memorable one, with absolutely beautifully prepared and presented, wonderfully mouth watering dishes. To add to the gastronomic experience, your staff were so attentive, courteous and above all completely informative and knowledgeable about the food and wine they were serving. A wonderful experience and such a beautiful and historical building.

This restaurant far exceeds current ratings and should be chasing a M star. Creative and interesting food in an ancient setting ... more of a restaurant with rooms rather than a hotel with a dining room... watch this space!.. Jim Merrington.
