Great service in a lovely comfortable setting. We were made to feel really welcome and the afternoon tea was delicious. The scones are very very good and there was more than enough choice of cakes. My only concern was that the choice of sandwich fillings could have been greater - one of our party doesn't eat fish or ham. However, this was soon remedied with specially made cream cheese and cucumber filling. beautiful hotel building.

Service was a little bit slow and slightly chaotic, but staff were lovely, so it really didn’t matter. The food was excellent - local ingredients, well cooked. A great bread and butter pudding.

Amazing food & service can’t fault that! The only thing to note is if you are bringing a dog, I would suggest adding it to the booking form when booking your table. Even tho the site says dog friendly we had to sit in a separate room (still very lovely) but we were questioned to why we didn’t say that we were bringing a dog!

We wasn't told the menu changed at 2pm. I booked for a birthday meal but had to leave because all that you could serve was sandwiches. Disappointed.

Amazing. Loved the food and restaurant service. While the Risotto was slightly undercooked and service at the front desk was slightly rude, everything else was excellent.

Had a lovely evening at The Refectory. The staff were very accommodating and welcoming. The food was generally good, although the bread was very stale. The steak was good but the dish would have benefited from some veg or greens of some description. Will go back as the evening was so pleasurable.
