One of the best meals I have had in a long time. Our starter was a lot more than just a Ham Hock and Chicken terrine The Cod of my main course as well as the lamb of my wife’s where both cooked to perfection I believe the WinePress deserves more than 2 AA rosettes and I look forward to returning

The menu choices very sparse, even allowing for current difficulties. It was obvious to us that we were not as worthy of the same service as residents, who were chatted to and looked after rather differently. After having dined many times in the Winepress restaurant, the contrast was very noticeable. If the hotel does not want non-residents to dine, perhaps they should indicate this - hopefully as a temporary situation. Overall, a disappointing experience and we wish we had booked elsewhere for my husband's birthday celebration this year. Cannot give less than one star but "value for money" is not appropriate.

Two courses £33.00 Beautifully cooked and delicious but only sufficient to satisfy a small appetite. If you think cordon bleu is French for small portions, there you have it! Our lunch: Starter: Crab rillette dish with half a slice of bread Main: duo of lamb, pea and bean fricassee, two thin curls of pickled carrot and one (yes really, just one) small hassleback potato.

Could not have been any nicer. The atmosphere is very relaxed while they provide really high quality service. The food was amazing, fresh, and full of flavour.

Very exciting food which we thoroughly enjoyed. We will return again soon, hopefully for your forthcoming tasting evening. Excellent service provided by the entire team but particulary Sue who was fantastic. Very attentive and informative. Your attention to detail in respect of Covid guidelines was first class, well managed and adhered to by diners. Thank you for the pleasure of dining at the Winepress. Look forward to the next time!

The Wine Press is a hidden gym. Amazing food with very friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere. Feels like sitting in an outside London cobbled street and so relaxed and inviting you must give it a try !

Food was amazing. So delicious and presented beautifully. Compliments to the chef. Friendly waiting staff. Wondered if you were doing track and trace (collecting diners contact details), as didn't see that happening though you may have with others and not us as we had booked and you already had our details. Would definately like to return though not our usual price range so would have to be a special occasion. Food for thought.

It was clear that there was not enough staff to cope with demand which resulted in an increased wait time and slightly lower quality of service than you would expect. Well done to the waitress who served us though as although she was extremely busy she still managed to provide a good level of service by working extremely hard and within the constraints of the staffing levels of the restaurant. If it were not for the waitress’ dedication, then the service could really have been a lot worse and put us off returning so fair play to her. Food was excellent, couldn’t fault it.
