Excellent meal, we had reservation for 6.45 but we were not offered the fixed price menu which apparently is from 6-7pm; also it does not appear on your website. We did not know about this option until we were half way through our meal and we may not have gone with it but it would have been nice to have been offered it. Very nice for a special occasion but expensive.

We had brought some friends with us to celebrate their Silver wedding anniversary. We throughly enjoyed the delicious afternoon tea in the ambiance of The Lawns Restaurant. The attention we received from Abs was outstanding! Well done Thornton Hall a delightful afternoon out in beautiful surroundings.

Food is excellent, wine was great. really enjoyable meal. Service is good but IMO should be a bit more personable and friendly, they are all a bit too serious. Atmosphere in the restaurant is a bit strange. Can't put my finger on why but I think the music is a bit ominous. The whole place could do with a bit more buzz and swagger, it takes itself too seriously. Pricing - drinks especially are super expensive. Would even be a lot if this restaurant was in London

Fifth visit since Abdallah Othmani arrived as Restaurant Manager and unless you are fortunate enough to be the recipient of his attention [and he tries hard enough to cover ALL the guests and tables - impossible task] then - because of the inadequacies of the 'back-up' 'team' and their failure to engage with the concepts and requirements of 'fine dining' - progress is minimal. One appointment is NOT going to change the restaurant into a venue which be frequented regularly enough by clients willing to pay Grosvenor-level prices without receiving first class service. I feel sorry for Mr Othmani, his commendable efforts are foundering on the rocks of the ineptitude of the supporting staff. Chef: fifth visit, same menu, no changes, becoming a concern. Professor Boyle,

Always a fantastic dining experience. This time we had the award wining afternoon tea which was divine. The sandwiches were tasty and a very good size. The choice of jams was a fantastic idea and delicious too. Will definitely return for more wonderful dining experiences

We had a wonderful meal with impeccable service and it was probably one of the best meals I have ever had and I am lucky enough to have eaten in many top restaurants worldwide. Only problem is we live in London so it's a long way to come but we will definitely be back! I cant wait to try the afternoon tea! Congratulations on your award.
