Remarkably well done given the difficulties in today's environment - I hope Tier 2 doesn't affect this very well run venue

Reception on arrival was staffed by a friendly and efficient staff member. Room was very comfortable with tea/coffee/biscuits/water.etc. Dinner ( served in bar as it was a Sunday ) was a disappointment. Seabream dish oily and mushy in texture. Ribeye steak was oily and tough. Service in bar ( except for one individual ) was poor. We gave a drinks order which as then completely forgotten and required re-ordering a few minutes later. Clearly a need for training here. Covid not an excuse for lack of staff training. Staff appear to be allowed to drink and eat in the bar which is unprofessional. Breakfast was good with efficient and friendly service from staff and good food. So lovely venue but attention to service and food is clearly needed.

Beautiful hotel and wonderful bar and restaurant. The setup to protect guests and staff was exemplary and the attitude of all the staff was excellent, making our stay and dining experience just perfect. Our meal in the restaurant was lovely and I would highly recommend a visit.

Setting was beautiful, service was good, not excellent but that could have been due to covid restrictions. We had afternoon tea sandwiches were lovely and the salmon was really tasty. Cakes were not great unfortunately, felt quite dry like they had either been frozen and defrosted or stale. My friend and i still enjoyed our time there and enjoyed a great catch up.

Lovely bar but when you eat in this area some of the chairs, which are ideal for relaxing with a drink, are just too low for dining at the tables. Either need higher chairs or lower tables, it was very uncomfortable to eat. Food was very good, cleanliness was excellent and staff friendly and attentive.

We ate here with family (4 adults) in a very comfortable corner of the bar restaurant. We chose from the steak night menu and were not disappointed. A very good meal. Very friendly service and the staff couldn't do enough to help. The same can be said for all the staff at the hotel. We were visiting from Essex and shall certainly be returning some time in the future.

Our second morning's breakfast in this restaurant and the food, drink, service and comfort were just as good as the previous day. This time we were with company but it was very relaxed and we did not have to rush at all.

Everything was lovely. My only negative and the couple at the next table felt the same. The chairs were too low and it was awkward to eat . I sent a photo to my daughter. She commented that we looked like children sitting at the adult table .

All Covid safety measures in place to ensure a safe experience as well as top class food, ambience and service. Excellent. Booked a table in December for a family Christmas meal after this experience. Would recommend to anyone.

Some nice extra touches from chef and celeriac was v good but generally main courses are more nouveau cuisine!! Thought that was the trend many years ago. Would appreciate much bigger portions for prices asked.

We came for my husbands 50th birthday to have the moat house taster menu. It was delicious. Every course was amazing and the staff were very professional and put us at ease with COVID restrictions being followed. Thanks you for this amazing meal we would definitely recommend it to others.
