Really enjoyed our dinner! We enjoyed a couple of drinks in the bar - good selection of gins! Rib eye was fantastic - melt in the mouth. My only criticism was I would have preferred plain simple green beans, rather than the bacon wrapped variety. Desserts were to die for, I had Caramel and Liquorice. Glass of the English Rose wine, very dry, I liked it. Just what we needed after a day at Cheltenham Festival.
Very nice afternoon tea. However, the customer should be able to put their own jam and cream onto the scones rather than having it pre done by the kitchen. I dont like a lot of jam so felt it was wasted and not too keen on cream therefore it let the afternoon tea down slightly.
Excellent serving staff, tolerant of five small children on Mother's Day.
thank you for a lovely Mothering Sunday lunch, with very attentive service.
We had to wait half an hour for a table after arriving on time for our booking - however I did appreciate it was one of the busiest days of the year, being Mothers' Day. The staff also had to be reminded of the dietary requirements I'd notified them of at the time of booking, but after a short delay they accommodated us as vegetarians with minimal fuss. Otherwise, the food and experience were very good and my family enjoyed it. There was a wide selection of food on the afternoon tea stand.
Very busy being Mothers Day. Left waiting in bar area for nearly one hour until we raised concern with member of staff
Nobody offered to take our coats. Service very slow. Main course portions very meagre. Fish stew unexciting. We were not asked if we enjoyed the meal. After paying, we were left to find our own coats. A very disappointing experience.
special thanks to Julia for arranging a beautiful birthday cake for my sons birthday dinner! We enjoyed the dinner. Very nice food and great service. Thank you!!
Had a really fab lunch, absolutely love the beautiful dining room, views to die for despite the rain and cloud..the only slight negative was the rather slow service which was a shame and whilst I appreciate not being rushed we found it painfully slow, having said that, we definitely intend to return and would recommend everyone to visit.
Had a lovely afternoon, food and drink tasted lovely and the staff were very attentive.
I will have a drink in the bar first next time
Excellent food, drinks and service. Great choice of gins. Our waitress was so lovely, she was tall with short brown hair.
I, would say the only thing which was disappointing was the selection of sandwiches, plain cucumber, simple ham, would have been ideal. maybe you should give a choice, but otherwise it was lovely and we enjoyed the afternoon. Thankyou.
Staff are courteous , friendly and efficient Dining hall has beautiful decor giving it a relaxed boutique feel . Food is delicious with lots of choice . Room was clean , comfortable with a breathtaking view .
We all really enjoyed Sunday lunch. After a lovely walk through the woods we were met by your friendly and efficient team who served us drinks outside - the terrace was sunny and warm despite it being February. The restaurant itself was busy which gave it a buzzy atmosphere. The food - we all had the beef - was delicious and the service attentive but not overly so. A perfect place for Sunday lunch.
I have been to this restaurant twice but many years apart. This time was more disappointing. The best bit was the wine- good choice. However, the food was average. The service was varied- not sure who was in charge as it wasn't clear. Some staff's uniforms needed a good iron. It had gone from good old-fashioned restaurant to average bistro. Still a nice view but that is not enough to get me to return. Shame.
The food was excellent but the service was poor. We were seated but not offered the wine list. Our order was taken for starters & main and the starters came out before bread and we had to ask for the wine list at that point. After our mains we sat with our plates for 20 minutes. Very disappointed that we had little attention throughout our meal. Staff appeared to be out the back a lot so were not there to check if you needed anything. Jake in the bar was wonderful and very attentive. It’s a pity other staff were not the same.
Well presented dishes, served by friendly attentive staff in a room with a good atmosphere and a great view. Valentines menu interesting and delicious.
Food was delicious but sadly the service was diappointing and tainted our experience. However the manager did go out of his way to compensate us.
Absolutely top class. Very impressed
Food was delicious, service was attentive, but not overly so - Overall an excellent experience, and will be visiting again.
Very good evening food excellent shame the rooms are not to the same standard
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and although the staff were polite and courteous it did seem at times that they were understaffed and not trained to the standard I would expect of this type of restaurant. Either way its nit picking, but I hope can be useful as we very much look forward to eating there again.
Very nice food and service.
Our meal at the 1919 cottage in the wood restaurant was one of the highlights of our very special weekend away. The food is exceptional matched only by the staff whose service and demeanour made the experience so much more enjoyable and memorable. Every care was taken to make us feel welcome and the quality of food is truly exceptional. Thank you so much for a wonderful time.
