I had the wine pairing with the tasting menu. Each wine was paired nicely with the different dishes. Staff were very knowledgeable and friendly which made for a great experience!

Food and service was excellent. Wine pairing was a great choice as it meant we ate and drank food and wine that we would not normally order. Only downside was that we were the only table in the Bow Room which detracted from the atmosphere slightly.

An excellent selection of plates from the tasting menu, along with a wide selection of wines from around the world. All in all a splendid evening, if a little expensive.

You could not fault the professional service we received from all the staff at Grays Court. The set dinner was superb. As each course was served the staff explained the ingredients and how it was prepared. If you want a culinary experience, you must include the dinner when you stay here. The room that we stayed in could do with an update.

Fantastic meal, great waiter/sommelier in Chris, very knowledgeable. Amazed that the meal was done solely by the sous chef, hats off to him! Speedy recovery for the chef, we look forward to returning!

Comments made following a visit when Covid-19 restrictions are in place. During our stay we had dinner once and breakfast twice. As described, the emphasis is on food quality, presentation and service. My wife is fussy with food and not normally adventurous, I persuaded her to try the gourmet taster dinner. A complete success with every course and commented that it was the best hotel / restaurant meal ever. The breakfast food produce both in-house and out-sourced was excellent.

The staff were helpful, welcoming, professional and yet not overtly formal, excellent service. The food was beautiful, slightly quirky and yet well balanced. The lamb was cooked to perfection, the best that I have tasted anywhere! We had the paired drinks and were not disappointed, each wine complemented the food very well and the knowledge of the staff regarding the wines was very good. The reason for 3 for the atmosphere is that it was only the 2nd night of the restaurant re-opening and there were only a few people in, I am sure that this will only get better! The only thing that we can think of that would make a slightly better eating experience for us would be a choice of cheese or dessert as we prefer cheese. That is just personal choice and not a reflection of the dessert served. We will definitely be back for more soon!

We were so glad that the Bow Room reopened and by chance booked a table on the opening night. The tasting menu is always fun and an opportunity to try new dishes, you never know what's next but at the the same time personal needs are catered for. Each dish was high standard and tasty, we particularly like the idea of a small dessert preceding the main one. In addition the wine was excellent.
