    Starters were good and delivered in good time. We waited a little too long for the main courses but when we had finished we thought they were worth the wait!

    Lovely spacious restaurant with plenty of room between tables but a very limited festive menu of three choices for each course and struggled to find choice I liked.

    Went for Sunday Lunch, lovely setting, superb food and very attentive staff, the only problem was the food went cold very quickly so maybe the plates could have been hotter.

    The hotel was welcoming as soon as we walked through the door, the service was very good and very helpful. The food was delicious and so beautifully presented, all the diners in our party enjoyed their meals very much. We thought it was very good value for a lovely meal.

    We have been several times for lunch to the Emlyn restaurant at Burford Bridge Hotel, but had booked direct not on on-line. On-line booking gained us a free glass of prosecco each by doing this. The restaurant has had a total makeover after flooding 2 years ago when we were booked in for Christmas lunch! It has been tastefully redecorated creating an airy ambience with pleasing views over the garden. The menu is interesting and well executed, one feature being a compartmented serving dish of 6 different vegetables to share to accompany the main courses, be it roast meat or other dishes. Deserts were a choice of favourite Sunday lunch puddings. All in all a very pleasant way to spend a Sunday. We are booked in again for Christmas dinner. May I add that many years ago, I celebrated my 21st in the Old Barn venue of this hotel!!!!!!

    This must be one of the best restaurants in the area. We had dinner here on a mid week evening and it was quite quiet, with only a few other tables taken. We were offered only the set menu to choose from - I am not sure why, perhaps becasue it was mid week. But there was a nice selection of differrent dishes and we would have been happy with any of them. The food was really well made with great ingredients, beautifully presented on the plates and tasted marvellous.

    Service was very attentive and I was surprised at the good value - a 3 course set menu dinner under £30 pp.

    So I would come back again, probably at a weekend, and I would recommend it to a friend.

    Very pleasant experience. Table was well located, plenty of room to move about the restaurant, food excellent and service also.

    Excellent food, great meal. Fish and lamb dishes were superb! Final course would have been better as a Cheese course with a glass of port in our opinion as two sweet courses felt too much. No wine given with final course which was surprising. These are our only gripes. Service was excellent and we loved all the other courses which were presented beautifully. Not much atmosphere in the restaurant on a Saturday night BUT that is not what we came for - we were a group who enjoy good food and that is what we got. In flight wine was a nice touch. Will come again for sure.
