Felt the member of staff was rushing about so much it made us feel rushed. Starter was tiny, mains was decent size, dessert was too much. Can't stand my glass being refilled when a couple of mouthfuls have gone - makes it feel like you're desperate for us to order another bottle. In all honesty wouldn't return to Balmer Lawn.

Overall the hotel was excellent. Small parking unit and the rooms could be better equipped when comparing per night cost.

We always enjoy dining at Beresfords. With the current situation the menu was understandably a little restricted but the staff lovely and welcoming. Only one blended whisky on offer tut!tut!. If G&T is your tipple, the sky’s the limit.

Really felt cared for by the staff in these difficult times. They went out of their way to answer our questions about the various menu items. We loved our meal (except the skinny fries!!) Thanks for making our staff so delightful.

We had a superb dinner and the dish of the day - Sea Bass was excellent. The menu choice was great and the staff very friendly. We had a lovely experience for our Wedding Anniversary and will return in the future.

The food was outstanding and we love coming but we waiting about an hr from asking for the bill to eventually paying after asking to pay 3 times to 2 different staff members. Our experience was still great overall but just disappointing at the end

Food was interesting and well presented. Cooked breakfasts suffered a little from Covid restrictions, I think. Staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our experience.

A very fine tasting menu meal with the flight of wines as part of a birthday celebration. A lovely experience. We’ll try the fish tasing menu next time.
