The maitre d' was lovely, he looked after us very well. The food was very good, but not all courses were equal, some more to my taste than others.

No real « wow « factor with the high tea. No fill ups on sandwiches as by other top restaurants. The background music was quite loud. The tea itself was quite plain. The table setting was also plain- no silver tongs for the sugar lumps. Lovely lady serving and very friendly. But the general impression was average and expensive for what it was.

I felt the table arrangements, all in one close line, were not conducive to a pleasant atmosphere. The service was good, the food was good but it felt like being processed, rather than the event we anticipated.

What an amazing dinning experience we had for a birthday celebration. We had the 9 course taster menu and thoroughly enjoyed every dish, they where mouth wateringly Devine, the wine selection was astonishing, never seen a collection like it. So very memorable and a must for any occasion.

Food was outstanding. 9 course tasting menu delivered Michelin Star quality food. The service does need some work however. Wines were not poured, jus dripped on clothing from the jug without staff noticing, cutlery missing from table. You won't manage the Star which you deserve without addressing these front of house issues.

Once again, a wonderful meal at the Burlington Restaurant. It has been a few years (probably five or six) since we were last there. Although the food was stunning, sadly the atmosphere is much less appealing that it has been in the past. The place has lost its wonderfully unique character and is now more like many other hotel restaurants that also double as a wedding venue. A very noisy wedding in adjoining areas to the restaurant with rowdy and quite intoxicated 'guests' wandering through the hotel really spoilt the whole "Devonshire Experience" for us. It really doesn't now live up to its claim as "the classical and traditional style of a country house hotel" ... more a second-rate wedding venue with an excellent restaurant attached. Very sad, another wonderful experience is, alas, no more.

We have dined at the Burlington previously, however, on this occasion we were not impressed by the good. Whilst it was satisfactory there was no 'wow' factor. All the dishes were similar in presentation; whilst the first dish covered in micro leaves and flowers was attractive by the end of service this was becoming boring. When we arrived we were seated by the piano which made conversation difficult - the cocktail lounge was full. We had to wait around 15 minutes before we were offered a drink. The canapés arrived quite some time later. The gentleman I assumed to be the Maitre D' was brusque in his manner and did not engage with us beyond checking we had given our drinks order. We had to catch someone's eye to order a second drink, however when he came to us he said the table was ready (despite canapés only just been served) and would bring the champagne to table - it never arrived! The young boy who served the food was fine, but had clearly not been taught to do anything beyond deliver the food and tell us what it was. When I checked the bill at home the following day we had been charged for 2bottles of water when we had only had one. I had two 125 ml of wine at £9.50 or £9.75 per glass but we had been charged £29 for these. My daughter had one 125 ml of Gewurtztraminer at £10 per glass but we were charged £14 for that. I am surprised that a restaurant such as The Burlington would condone such underhand practices. Overall I cannot say it was poor, however it did not stand up to our previous experience of the restaurant.q

Having had a fantastic experience previously we were really looking forward to a celebratory meal but were left a little disappointed. Neither of us found the food to be outstanding as it should be, in fact the crab starter I had was actually difficult to finish. The texture and flavours were awful and as we'd chosen to have the a la carte option it was a shame that one of three courses was really unappealing. Both the pre-starter and pre-dessert were delicious but the canapés were not great at all. Both flavour and textures didn't work for us and we remember those as previously being a highlight. The service was fine but not exceptional and the atmosphere was lacking. Sadly we won't be be back in a hurry.
