It would have been nice to have one of two more dishes to choose from. Also a cheese platter to go with dessert

Much of the smorgasbord options I was interested in were empty When they were filled we had moved on. If you have time and patience then it works. But $42 for a burger and 2 mini donuts is pretty steep. But the meat balls were tasty. Pity no salad or veggies to go with it.

The waitress tried too hard to make us feel welcome etc. so it was a little intrusive. I thought the possible surcharge on the bill was completely unnecessary for a hotel of this calibre.

Very disappointed. We attended with my daughter who is vegetarian. On arrival, we noted that there was one dish in the mains she was able to eat We spoke to both the waitress and manager who offered for her to order off the menu, but at an additional cost. When I queried this they finally agreed that they would charge the $39 buffet fee but she couldn't eat anything other than dessert! Again we said this was not adequate so they offered she could also eat salad This was so disappointing as there should be adequate food for all. Since we were there, we continued and the meal she received was very nice (better than the buffet). The waitress then said to just eat what she wanted but by this stage my daughter was too upset/embarrassed to eat any of the buffet at all!

The bar staff were a little flat and not overly friendly. The waitress in the dining room was lovely and took time to know our names. I believe Julia was her name. She the only one working the dining room and I think she did an amazing job given how many diners there were. In regards to the food. I think the starters need some more basic options added like breads and dips or soups etc. They were all fairly out there which we were happy with, but it is nice to include even one simple option.

We had a wonderful afternoon with great food, wine & coffee. We were seated in a great area away from other diners & although we had small children, we were very well taken care of by all the staff. Peyton, in particular, was great & checked on us regularly. The Manager was lovely & also looked after us well. Thank you for making Mother's Day one to remember. We may have to make it a Mother's Day tradition.

Brilliant night with many of the group staying much longer than they would normally do. Great selection of food, amazing wines but the one thing that stood out was Julie's service. She is simply amazing and made every guest feel special. I will be booking this venue again following the feedback from our group. Thank you to the staff of Pullman. You have set a new benchmark in regard to service and hospitality!!!

There were two experiences in Cliveden & attached bar; first, the bar, where I had coffee & light refreshments; no mugs for coffee - ludicrous; what establishment doesn't have mug size coffee cups! Dinner was great, except for the screaming child at a close by table & it was generally pretty noisy with the post game crowd! The food was excellent and our waitress was lovely; her name was Stephanie! Overall a pretty good experience.

What dining experience - there was none!!! We booked for the Game Day Buffet at the Pullman on the Park advertised in the Pullman newsletter and throughout the hotel. On arriving at 19:00 we were told there wasn't a buffet. We were staying in house - and if someone had taken their time to either send a note upstairs to our room or email - or a phone call to tell us there was no buffet - that would have been nice. We have stayed at the Pullman many times - and have joined Accor again this year - Accor have now lost our business. We talked to the Manager of the Hotel - who really couldn't come up with an answer for us, and seemed quite arrogant about it. The staff at the Hotel - especially the staff in the Executive Lounge continue to be exemplary. Accor should look at the problems encountered at the Pullman.

Julia our waitress was wonderful. She remembered us from previous visits, and gave excellent and knowledgable service. Food quality was very good. We like the styling of the restaurant, and the space between tables. My sister and I will be back.

Food at buffet that was meant to be hot was very Luke warm. Variety including the basic sausage was very disappointing for the money paid Would not do it again.
