Very reactive staff. Drink spilt on our table by waiter and it took 10 minutes to clean due to our persistence by which time the water had spread. Also time from time without drinks, we had to ask whereby I expect staff at a 5 star hotel to be on top of drink orders

Roast meals were just warm as were the trimmings.The forcemeat was salty. Pan jus was the same for each roast and thickened with cornflour not a traditional roux. There was a long period waiting for pudding. The bread and butter pudding was cold and spread over the top with a cold creme anglaise it didnt look good at all. The pecan tart was bought in and such a small portion. Overall I found the staff to be not watching for the customers requests...a little staff training on attentiveness wouldn't go amiss. I will return for a 2nd visit as I did enjoy the restaurant atmostphere allbeit that we were sat in the doorway to the restaurant and had to listen to waiting staff bicker over a lost food check.

Fantastic stay and an amazing meal. Our server Michael was so tentative and couldn’t do anymore for us. Kept coming over to make sure we were ok but not to the point where it was annoying.

Excellent lovely meal with gluten free options. Scallop starter needed something else, too bland flavours. Everything else great, service second to none excellent

We were not put in the rib room we were put in the hotel reception area. The afternoon tea was lovely, however we felt we were just put somewhere out of the way, but actually felt we were in the way.The reception was very busy with people booking in wasn't the relaxing time we were expecting over all.

We dined early Sunday evening - staff were very welcoming and attentive -menu wide and varied - we chose from the Sunday 'specials menu' (with chips as extra) and incl bottle of house red which went down well - promised ourselves future visits to work through the menu! Thoroughly recommended.

There was not enough variety of vegetables on the Sunday dinner. No carrots, parsnips, cabbage etc. Also no patè on the starters x

The server had the personality of a spoon. Porterhouse that we were served was not a porterhouse cut The overall experience was average. The whole place needs a revamp, even the menu are plastic, I didn't find anything special about the whole experience.

A very pleasant afternoon had! There was quite a wait between our starters and main courses, but as we were a large party and had chatting to do, this wasn't a huge issue. The atmosphere of the restaurant is always lovely - a very pleasant place to be. The food was lovely and everyone enjoyed it.

My husband and I spent an evening at The Rib Room for my husband's birthday. The service was second to none, the food delicious and the atmosphere inviting. A fantastic evening all round, can't wait to return.

A mixup over prior payment led to a negative experience for the birthday party. However management have since apologised and made amendments by offering a complimentary return trip for afternoon tea.

We stayed for 1 night, eating in the Rib Room, the food was excellent and the waiter had an in depth knowledge of the wines on offer. The staff were welcoming and very professional at all times, nothing was too much bother. Spa facilities were excellent, lovely relaxed atmosphere, I would certainly visit again.
