Very comfortable stay. Delicious food and excellent service.
I visit the lygon arms quite frequently and I was very disappointed yesterday, the service was not good and there was absolutely no atmosphere. We were not welcomed at all, in fact it seemed like an inconvenience. I took my family for some simple lunch as a half term treat and it did not live up to its usual standard. I will think carefully about visiting again soon.
The hotel is beautifully designed and staff were very professional from initial booking through to the day itself. However beyond the lovely glass of champagne, the afternoon tea was of a very poor standard. Stale bread, poor ingredients such as reformed sliced ham and uninspiring creations with no flair or originality. There was little choice of tea and it was in bags. I would have expected loose tea and a MUCH higher standard of food for the cost of the afternoon tea. Really disappointed. This was my husband's and my first date together without our child and we wanted something really special. We will not return, nor will we recommend.
A very relaxed enjoyable experience...
Seafood salad; fairly unexcitung and little taste. Lovely juicy-looking king prawns but they just tasted of water. Overpriced for that kind of poor attention to taste.
The chap who served us was very attentive and friendly. The only thing on service I would fault is that we said I didn’t eat meat just poultry fish eggs and so to have a sandwich with tomato and rocket was rather unimaginative. Likewise everyone had wraps but it seems ours were just removed. Probably because they were meat but no replacement wrap wAs given. Also there aren’t many teas to choose from. I would expect more from somewhere like the Lygon and at the price of the Lygon. We were here because the first visit was poor in every respect. This was certainly better but I still don’t think it warrants the price compared to others locally inc Buckland Manor. . The chap who served us did get alternatives for us but we shouldn’t need to ask in the first place. We feel the experience is nice but lacks refinement.
It was my friends birthday on the day , this was part of the celebrations and a special treat. We both really enjoyed the meal (light lunch), the atmosphere, location and the building itself were wonderful. Would like to come back for dinner or possible stay a night or two. Broadway was also very lovely.
We enjoyed a delicious champagne afternoon tea served to us in the courtyard. Because it was the Wimbledon fortnight the tea had a Wimbledon theme. This was a lovely treat. The small cakes were in the shape of tennis balls,a tennis court and there was a tiny chocolate tennis racket. A Pimms little dessert was also served! We loved it....
Everything was just right - the sunshine - the lovely staff - people watching ! beautiful historical hotel - delicious lunch - a return visit planned for next year when l attend a RAF squadron reunion and maybe my special Birthday.
What a wonderful, delightfully atmospheric and beautiful old building, masking the most atrocious service. Avoid like the plague. Having reserved a private area the confirmation email was sent several hours after leaving home and consequently found to be double booked and unavailable. No apology was offered, but a much nicer area was secured. Staff immediately placed the reservation tags on the table and in the short time our group took to relocate, other equally frustrated guests of the establishment had taken up situ. No assistance was offered by staff to rectify the situation, and no apology was made to either my group nor the new squatters whom were equally angered at the level of service. Food orders took half an hour to arrive and the food was undercooked, mediocre and bland. When you pay £16 for a burger you don't expect the inside to be so undercooked the meat is raw and cold. I asked 3 members of staff if this was normal and received no response and again, no apology. Drinks orders failed to materialise. After ordering a second time, some parts of the first order arrived after 45 minutes. This is not the first, nor the second time I have received such dire service from this establishment, but sadly every 2 months when visiting The Lygon Arms the service is utterly dire. On a previous visit, specific allergy advice was completely ignored by the staff resulting in one member of my group having to use their epi pen. If you have any food allergies or specific requirements, consult a lawyer before visiting. Or a mortician. This used to be such a wonderful, gorgeous venue but since it was acquired by new owners and tormented to a refit so ghastly it was tantamount to sacrilege and the total evaporation of customer service, not only is this one establishment I will avoid in future, it will be one establishment whose demise I would truly welcome. Oh and why are the staff dressed like Canadian lumberjacks? I did ask and apparently it's how people in high end, country establishments in England such as The Lygon dress. Well they don't - it's what the new American owners think the attire should be - and it makes the staff resemble Canadian lumberjacks. Finally, every time I feel the need to lose the will to live and make a reservation, I have to ask - how difficult is it to answer a phone? The receptionist who used to answer the phones with wonderful decorum has been replaced with a teleprompter system that irrespective of which options you select from the menu, directs you to the wrong department and then terminates your call.
We had an afternoon tea for 3 people and could not fault the experience and loved the surroundings.
very enjoyable Sunday brunch with plenty of good food and friendly service
The Lygon is getting better, as it should do under present management. Hopefully will be back to levels of 20/30 years ago when it was 'first class', but currently a huge leap forward for the better Congratulations ! We will come back.
A really super afternoon tea with lovely service. Highly recommended
Staff didn’t seem very attentive as they were waiting for exclusive guest? Almost being rushed to leave and not offered anymore tea The scones were too sweet, and the puddings were very tasty Sandwiches lovely and settings lovely Toilet sink in ladies bathroom when running water smelt like sewerage, May be a problem?
Overall very happy with service I received. However it did feel like we were being rushed at the end of our allocated time (5:45pm) when the restaurant was not busy.
Dinner in the Lounge Friday evening good as was service. Very poor service at Breakfast Saturday. Had to wait 15 minutes to be seated Saturday morning then 40 minutes for cooked breakfast & only two of the 3 ordered meals arrived. Well done requested scrambled egg was runny, undercooked and looked insipid slop. Coffee served was only lukewarm. In all fairness the head breakfast waiter arranged a refund of the breakfast element but not good enough for a 4 star hotel of this standing. Afternoon tea in the Bar Lounge not much better. Had to wait 20 minutes after requesting a high chair from bar man for a 20 months old and when complained to a waiter was told he was a bit busy but would get one eventually. Another 10 minutes. Ordered finger sandwiches for our 20 month old baby and the selection of 2 small fingers included ham with English Mustard? (for a baby) Also waited 25 minutes for 2 x gin & tonics. Waitress said she thought they may have forgotten the drinks. Scones were nice as was Breakfast on day 2. Very disappointed overall though and some staff excellent other seemed as though they did not care.
Thanks to Danica who went the extra mile for my daughters 40th birthday celebrations with friends xx
Very relaxing stay.
Nice Venue friendly staff, very cool uniform, worked hard due to the circumstances of being very busy. Can’t wait too return. EJB EVENTS.CO.UK Dame Emma-jane Brown.
This is the second time we have enjoyed a cream tea here at Christmas time. We were bought this present last year and asked for the same gift experience this year. The food was well presented and were frequently asked if we needed top ups of tea.
Wonderful staff! Lester and Gavin are amazing!!
Staff very accommodating, attentive and friendly. Lovely atmosphere, warm and friendly and tastefully decorated for Christmas.
We booked a festive afternoon tea with the children, lovely place but very slow service despite not being very busy and a number of staff being around. santa visit was lovely.
