Our room needed a thorough clean. No social distance in the garden. Groups of people with ten lads on one

The Service was first class, Annie was excellent from helping with the reservation to attention on the day! Marked the food score down due to the Tea had far too many cakes and not enough sandwiches. Party of 12 barely had just over a sandwich each! Wouldnt mind paying a bit more so guests wouldnt have to leave hungry!

We held a lunch party for my mother’s 90th birthday and were delighted with everything. All the guests enjoyed the excellent food which was brought to the table very efficiently. The room and table looked really great. All the staff were welcoming and professional and we were 100% satisfied with the standard of food and service.

Lovely environment. "Can do" approach, staff could not do enough for us. We had afternoon tea (a party of 27), sandwiches were on par with Amberley Castle and South Lodge, genuinely home-made cakes and 'treats' were infinitely better. Well done guys and thank you very much.

Review and rating is based on Christmas Day lunch for 6 people, which overall was good but nothing special and the food was pretty average. Positives: The initial greetings from staff were warm and welcoming and we were seated very quickly. The speed of service and attention by staff was excellent up to the last course. The canapés, starters and main courses were good with the exception of the vegetation option. Negatives: The welcome drink (Prosecco, Bucks Fizz) were only quarter filled, some glasses were even less! The log fire in the dining room was a lovely touch but it filled the room was smoke and the lack of air made the atmosphere rather unpleasant for dining. No vegetarian canapés offered, only meat/fish options. The Vegetable Wellington main course was very disappointing, bland and only served with roast potatoes! (where was all the wonderful winter vegetables as provided with the Turkey?!) The whole dish tasted like it had been cooked a day or so earlier and reheated in the microwave. You can tell by the dry, non-crispy potatoes, which is unacceptable in my book when paying £85 per head. The Christmas pudding also tasted and looked it has been reheated in the microwave. At the end of the meal we had to ask for tea/coffee and never received the mince pies and truffles which were advertised and included as a final course on the menu, which was a disappointing end to the meal.

Our first time to Roundabout Hotel and we most definitely will be going back at some point. We went with parents and our children for a Christmas meal. The decor was lovely and cosy. The food was delicious and the price reasonable.

So disappointed... I arranged for a surprise 50th lunch for my partner Tony and it was such a disappointment. Upon arrival, everything was fine. We had arranged to meet family and friends in the bar for a drink at 2pm to then sit down to starters at 3pm followed by lunch. About 2.30 we kept being asked if we wanted to sit down (this should have rung alarm bells then), we all joined the table at just before 3pm, to find the starters we had ordered we all just placed at the top of the table and not distributed evenly around. I had literally just taken my coat off and sat down, when the dinners started to come out, which was a huge shock to everyone as we did even have a chance to have one bite of the starters!!! The order was for 10 adults and 3 childred, two of the adults meals were wrong and one the childrens meals were wrong. The veg was hardly seasonal (carrots and parnsips), the lamb meals were all luke warm, the chicken dishes where dry and over cooked. Basically the orders had clearly been sitting there fore a while, hence the rush when we sat down to get the food to us super quick. This was futher confirmed by the time the desserts were delivered as the sticky toffee pudding was rock hard and all 8 dishes where returned, again had cleary been cooked ages ago and was left just warming up.. Two of these returned again. As you can imagine, this put a huge downer on the afternoon and rather than go to the bar afterwards for more drinks, we called all our others friends who had planned to join us later, to annouce a change of plan and sadly we all headed to another destination for the rest of the birthday celebrations. So what I hoped was going to be a lovely afternoon/evening for my partner turned into a disaster. We live in west chiltington and have eaten at the hotel several times and alwasys found the meals enjoyable. We also always recommened friends to use stay at the hotel when visiting However we have never eaten in a large group and pre ordered before and this is clearly were we went wrong Such a shame for such a special occasion
