Blind tasting menu. The food was exceptional, imaginative and presented faultlessly. The service was performed perfectly. Value for money unbelievable, however we did book the meal as part of the hotel package which gives a reduced rate. The wine we chose Zinfandel was perfect and again reasonably priced. Well done a meal we will never forget

The 9 course taster menu was exceptional. The preparation and quality of food was outstanding and it introduced me to dishes that I hadn't previously tried for fear of not liking or not knowing how to prepare. Each course was explained as it was brought to the table and the chef himself was keen to know your thoughts of the evening. A truly enjoyable experience.

Great night. Very, very reasonably priced compared to other fine dining restaurants. Staff were lovely and very attentive. Heard Paul Simon singing the Chevy Chase (You Can Call me Al) song too many times for The Bow Room to get the fine dining atmosphere to five stars, though ;)

Wonderful evening, perfect service. 70 BP for a 9 course menu is excellent for the value provided. The accompanying vine for 50 BP seemed a little on the expensive side. Strong recommendation!!

The Bow Room restaurant dining experience was truly remarkable. After discussing our food tastes, head chef Joe created 9 sumptuous "tasting menu" dishes which took us on a journey of sensory delight. Artfully presented with intricately woven flavours, each different dish left us marvelling. The historic Bow Room looks onto the stunning gardens at Grays Court where some of the evening's ingredients even originated! Staff were charming and professional. Dining here is an experience not to be missed.

The whole experience at The Bow Room was just fantastic, from the chef introducing himself and asking about our dietary needs/likes/dislikes until the last course was. The service was great and each dish in the 9-course blind tasting was a delicious surprise.
