Amazing surroundings, great service and the staff went to great lengths to make us feel safe and welcome. We had a relaxing break away from the realities of 2020 in an oasis steeped in history. In so many places recently COVID security has taken the place of customer service. All of the staff at Lumley castle should be commended for adapting to the challenges of dealing with the pandemic without compromising on service. excellent and can’t wait to return sometime soon. Thank you.

Great service, excellent food and lovely staff! Covid precautions were very well done. Wine list a bit short but we spoke to the Manager, who explained the problems with supply.

Given that guest numbers were so limited, we.found that the service for our evening meal was below par. Twenty minutes after being seated we were asked if we would like to order dinks. We ordered a bottle of rosè zinfandel and advised the server that we are priority club members as there was a 20% discount in September. She returned telling us that we had to have the alternative bottle she was offering under the offer. I have since checked.and this was entirely incorrect. I had the smoked salmon and gravidlax starter and have to admit that I thought there would be a little more to this than said items put on a plate. Zero presentation. At this point we had to ask for water. All other tables within our sightline had a bottle of water on them. The server then returned and poured a minimal amount into our glasses. As our service was so incredibly slow we ended up being last in the restaurant (We had a 19:45 reservation). No background music playing and the feeling that they were waiting to close up. Which was rather flat considering that we had booked our stay and meal as an anniversary treat and had advised so. On the plus side, the team at breakfast were exceptionally good and we left somewhat happier than we otherwise would have done.

Despite Covid restrictions, we had a wonderful experience. The service was absolutely 5*, as was the food. Both my wife and I went for the rib eye steak as our mains and, without doubt, they were the best steaks we've ever tasted. With regards to adhering to Covid restrictions and H&S policy, both the restaurant and hotel excel in that capacity. We would absolutely recommend the restaurant as a place to dine, and will certainly be back.

Food would have been good if it had been hot. A better selection of vegetables instead of lots of green beans would have been nice. Sticky toffee pudding was very good.

Lovely evening but felt out of the way in small room rather than the main restaurant.
