Sebastian, the restaurant manger was professional and delightful. We were treated like privileged guests. I would recommend to others. Afternoon tea for £31pp is rather hefty though.

Loved the afternoon tea. The profiterole being so light, the mousse and the ginger fruit cake stand out especially. I would have loved to get the recipe for the fruit cake. Excellent service as well from the staff. Wonderful

Excellent service throughout from arrival until leaving although the time between courses was a bit too long for my liking at lunchtime. It was my mother's birthday so complimentary glass of champagne was a very nice touch. I will try afternoon tea next time.

I had an operation at Basingstoke Hospital, and my wife and I booked your two nights and dinner package. As it happens the hospital kept me in, so I didn't make the second night, but we were very impreseed by your friendly and professional service, and the delicious food - arguably the best chips (with my Barnsley chop) that I've ever tasted! Whoever does your interviewing for staff has got a very good sense for the right people. We both travel for work, my wife in particular, so we are aware of hotels in many parts of the world. In view of my impending operation, I took a really extended bath before dinner, and it was such a pleasure to find classic plumbing that really worked, neither glitzy nor gurgling. You don't often find that - full marks to all of you!

I was a bit taken aback when I saw the taster menu as I was not enamoured with the choices. Having said that the food was great and we both enjoyed the meal very much. Breakfast next morning was also great.

I came as a group of four for afternoon tea - one vegetarian and one vegan.. Vegan options were limited, no clotted cream alternative and three of the four cakes were the same. The sandwiches were fab! The vegan and vegetarian food was on one stand - vegan on the left side, veggie on the right side. I asked if the middle selection was vegan aswell? The waitresses response was shrugged shoulders, along with 'yes I think so'. She didn't sound sure, I asked again. She said 'it should be yes, it will be fine.' I then asked her to ask the chef and she returned to say it was not vegan. Based on this, I feel it was appalling service and disrespectful!
