On all three nights we dined in Beresfords restaurant the meal was SUPERB. The Chef is to be congratulated on his menus and the execution of the dishes- they looked great and they were utterly delicious. The service was friendly and professional and Fernando has a great team at his disposal. All in all, a wonderful experience. Thank you.

My wife and I really enjoyed all our meals whilst spending three days at the hotel. The standard of service was especially good, with one left feeling that the customer's needs were entirely what the most attentive staff sort to provide. The food was consistently beautifully presented and consisted of well balanced flavours and textures on every eating occasion.

I marked the service down due to the fact it took approx. 40 mins for out order to be taken. We were acknowledged more than once but it took an age to be served. Once order was taken the service level was OK.Just make sure if you tell a customer that you will take their order soon it is soon and not 40 mins later !!

Service a tiny bit slow. The fillet steak on the first night was exquisite. Not as nice on the second night.

We have enjoyed visiting Beresfords Restaurant for a number of years now and it just gets better every time. The food is faultless and the service is very efficient, with the staff being very attentive and polite. As well as providing a menu that should cater for most tastes, the restaurant also offers an extensive wine list, which is very interesting.

Beautifully delicious food, very full wine list and a good selection by glass although selfishly I would prefer even more choice by glass. Friendly and professional service. Only comment is that at some tables the lighting is just too dim and trying to see the symbols on the wine list was extremely hard.

My husband and I had a delicious meal at the Beresfords restaurant. The quality of food was outstanding. I am Lactose Intolerant and so eating out is difficult. But the staff was so helpful and had already gone through the menu and discussed my options before I arrived at the table. Very Impressed.

The meal was a family birthday celebration, so there were ten of us. The waiting staff and the kitchen did an excellent job in looking after the largish group, especially the grandsons. The surprise birthday cake was an added treat. Well done to all who helped make this a lovely birthday meal.
