Not really

A very poor experience, with only one or two highlights. Few staff who appeared untrained, but were friendly. Most menu items carried a supplement, things which were listed without supplement were not available! Wine was ordered but not delivered until after main course was finished. Sirlion steak which carried a supplement was very low quality and not my first choice anyway. Partners duck was fine. Long wait for dessert which was not inspiring. Overall less than wonderful.

Enjoyed the food and friendliness of the restaurant staff. Eating in the library was an interesting experience and made it a more intimate atmosphere.

Change the music as it was on a loop. The person who took the booking was not particularly friendly and immediately asked if it was a travelzoo voucher and initially said they were fully booked but suddenly found a cancellation! They were not full by any means while we were there. Made to feel like a second class citizen which was a shame as restaurant manager was lovely.

The whole experience was most enjoyable, the quality of the food was excellent and the service was very good. The dining room was well set out. Definitely value for money. It was just too far to travel for a dinner. Therefore we stayed overnight.

Although not part of the deal we stayed for 1 night and I feel the bedroom was a little tired and in need of a refurbishment.

Everyone was curtious and friendly. The service was good as was the food.

It was cold in the dinning room. There was no water on the table unless you paid for it. Most restaurants offer free water.

14 April 2013 Susan United Kingdom

food was lovely, ambience was good with several other couples dining

service was slightly slow - very little eye / customer contact for refilling empty glasses etc slightly disappointed there were more dishes with surcharge than without - looked a bit obvious that was how the savings were being recouped.
