Did not get the meal we thought we had ordered, food was fine but we were pestered by staff member all through our meal. Staff member was extremely untidy, her shoes were split open, not acceptable for a hotel.
Had a lovely lunch with the family. Didnt walk around grounds much this time but lake was beautiful.
We booked for Sunday dinner. When we arrived we were taken into the dining room. There was no atmosphere at all, and felt like we were sitting in a care home (Dated decor, table clothes and no background music) so we moved to the bar area. This was some what better but still no atmosphere. The dinner was okay and there was a lot of it, too much. Probably won’t return for food.
Afternoon tea not up to much. bit boring. plain or cheese scone sausage roll, cheese savoury sarnie, cakes nothing flash, whole thing really nothing flash. i’d like to see a difference, some sparkle ...white choc and raspberry scone, little cupcakes, something different. huge pot of tea was nice.
This was a present from a friend, bought for us because we used to dine in the restaurant on a regular basis some 35+ years ago. Once we had children we never seemed to get the time. We had afternoon tea which smelt lovely as it arrived. We tried to eat as much as possible because it all looked so good but we ended up taking a large portion home. We enjoyed the wraps very much. If we could find fault it would be the small loaf sandwiches we found too much bread for the filling, but they were tasty. The scones were lovely and the selection of cakes was really good. I had asked that we didn't get either scones or cake with dried fruit as my husband has problems healthwise and this was adhered to. The staff were lovely and we certainly expect to return in the near future. Thank you very much.
Marvellous afternoon tea and great service
Made to feel very welcome; food great, quantity and quality-wise, service excellent - attentive and courteous. Ambience lovely - and warm and welcoming! We shall return!
Lovely accommodation, particularly lovely with the Christmas decorations up. Very friendly attentive staff, nothing was too much bother for them. Delicious food (we had festive afternoon tea). We had a wonderful relaxed afternoon and ended up staying 5 hours!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday Lunch. The food was delicious and the staff went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed a relaxed festive family get-together. We'll definitely be back.
Food and general service outstanding. Loved the pianist. Created a great ambiance. Only criticism is that we were not asked if we wanted drinks throughout the duration of our meal despite empty glasses being on the table. Otherwise -faultless. Will be back!
Had festive afternoon tea to celebrate our mam's 81st Birthday. Had a wonderful time. it was perfect.
Amazing food and great service
made to feel so welcome by really friendly staff. food excellent. rooms excellent. we cannot fault the hotel. will be going back again and again!
Excellent atmosphere to celebrate my parents Diamond Wedding Anniversary.
Superb afternoon tea. Great value for money. Will definitely go back.
We were disappointed to discover on arriving that we were not seated in the lounge but had to eat in the bar. We don't have anything against the bar if we were expecting to have a few alcoholic beverages, it was very nice.The afternoon tea was lovely, as always, and is highly recommended. However, if we had been informed of the change to seating arrangement we would have probably gone elsewhere or delayed the afternoon out.
Lovely hotel, food is great and perfect for a special occasion. Steak is the best in the North East! Service could have been better but by no means terrible. Would recommend a visit.
Polite professional staff. Grand surroundings. Only criticism was one scene enough. Preferred another sandwich. Overall a great event.
Waitress was very attentive and ensured we had a pleasant experience.
A lovely relaxing atmosphere set in a beautiful traditional English location. It's everything you'd expect from a Country Hotel and more. The staff are first class. The grounds are beautiful and it's a delight to walk through the park and see the ducks by the lake. It's our favourite place to dine.
Beautiful afternoon tea in gorgeous settings. Staff very helpful. Lovely relaxing experience.
We had a lovely afternoon tea, the service was exceptional and the food delicious!
We were so well looked after by your fantastic host (think she was called Jane). She went above and beyond to give us a lovely afternoon- thank you!
Friendly staff . Delicious food but had to wait 30 minutes for afternoon tea to arrive. Staff helpful but had to ask for butter , milk and sugar. More savoury options would have been perfect
