I booked afternoon tea at West Lodge Park to celebrate a special birthday. We all enjoyed such a lovely afternoon. Everything was perfect.

As I have always highly recomend you to friends and family and have had several visits. Westlodge is one of my favourite Hotel's. I am sorry to say I was not very happy with the service and food this time . I was suppose to get chips with my bream fish....instead I got new potatoes. The birthday girl did not get her tea that was ordered after dessert. The waitress forgot. The time we came was 14.00 and not15.00 as above. I requested on the booking date - when the dessert was brought to the birthday girl it should have had birthday Deco instead I had to request it in front of the birthday girl.This was a special birthday and wanted it to be little special for her. The waitress apologized then came back with selection of small chocolates but forgot the oredered tea. We did not bother to wait and asked for the bill. When the bill arrived we were charged for the tea after checking we had to inform the waitress it was not delivered. So sorry but I was very disappointed over all.

I was very disappointed with the customer service having booked an afternoon tea for my elderly mother with my brother (for a belated mothers day). I was given a table right at the entrance of the door where the bar is when the booking was for Mary Beale Restaurant. I had to ask for a menu, then ask for clotted cream and jam because the scones arrived without it and were getting cold. The tea is in such a big heavy teapot that it would have been more suitable if given a smaller pot for two as my brother had a coffee. I had to ask for the bill and when not given, I went to find where I could pay. Definitely not 5star service and embarrassing having come to a hotel of such class to have young staff not trained properly Would not recommend at all and will be forwarding this complaint so that staff are given proper training to serve guests at a high class hotel.

As ever we had lovely Sunday lunch and a relaxing time. We really appreciate the pianist, he plays at about the right volume allowing us to chat quietly while hiding the content of chat from adjacent tables. Colin W

We had a really great family gathering and many thanks to your staff for looking after us so well. Food and venue were excellent. Only slight gripe was the decision to move us into the main dining room without telling us - especially as I had checked a couple of times. But quite honestly, the meal was lovely and the atmosphere in the dining room great. So we'll be back!!

When I booked I noticed that the charge for the basic afternoon tea was £23 pp. when I arrived with my Mother and was given the menu, again, the charge on the menu for basic afternoon tea stated £23 pp Yet when the bill came up it was £49 (£24.50 pp). We had nothing extra in addition to the basis afternoon tea. I didn’t query the bill as I had treated my mum and didn’t want to discuss the charge in front of her. But I could not understand the extra £3. It did not state that it was a service charge.

Sandwiches and cakes were boring. Came here last summer and I must say it wasn’t as nice this time.

Ruby looked after us as we had a quiet meal for two. Attentive staff and the food was perfect accompanied by the sounds of a smooth pianist - only interrupted by the smashing of bottles into the waste bin. The perfect venue for a quiet intimate meal and you will be astounded at how good the food tastes. But as always it’s the staff that make the evening run smoothly and we will be back to see you all soon. Chris and Shelley

Lovely to have vegan options and that individual requests were accepted. Beautiful settings. Great service. Food was tasty but the sandwiches were a little dry. Scones were delicious!!

We are a group of friends who like to try different restaurants, we will definitely be returning. The venue, food and service was first class. Nothing was too much trouble. We felt the menus catered well for both non vegetarian and vegetarian diners. Thank you. Hilary

Very pleased with the service. Food very good, just one comment, the lamb was tough. Nice atmosphere and good to have the piano music, my goddaughter's daughter aged 5 was able to entertain us to ballet between courses, good job we were in a side room!

Lovely food - the fish was delicious. A big hats off to our lovely server Matthew who skilfully and patiently dealt with a very rude and demanding customer at another table. He deserves a medal. A lovely relaxing meal in tranquil surroundings - thank you.

I have dined in the restaurant usually 2 or 3 times per year and enjoyed everything. Last night however I was dissapointed on the service and the portion size especially the steaks both my wife and I had. Also the 25% discount was not deducted from the bill No Ck#:80
