This is an amazing restaurant in an equally amazing hotel. You can tell it is a family run business, everyone is genuinely really helpful - nothing is too much trouble .

The chef dealt admirably with one vegetarian who would only eat XYZ and another who would only eat ABC, and having paired wines with each dish was a treat worth having.

Would have appreciated more notice re the change in reservation time. Putting it back to 8pm meant it became a late evening for us by the time we had driven home it was after midnight. Ian

We dined here as residents eating the 9 course blind tasting menu. You sit in the gallery for drinks where you eat 3 of the starters (which are referred to as snacks). The chef came out and spoke to us beforehand to discuss any allergies or tailoring the menu which I thought was good. Food was excellent, although I would always welcome a few more vegetables. Service excellent, attentive and lovely ambience in the Bow room. Also breakfast very good too. All in all I would highly recommend a stay at Greys Court if food is an important factor.

Fantastic dining experience in a beautiful room, indeed hotel. Some really unusual combinations of flavour on the 5 course taster menu and things I wouldn't normally order, but so glad that we took the journey. Loved the wine Pairings as well. Great selection and knowledgeable, competent staff. Thank you

Outstanding. Do it with the wine pairings. A real education without snobbery. And not too expensive for a huge meal.

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.

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!
