Customer reviews for Emlyn Restaurant at Burford Bridge Hotel
(((** 18 April 2017 by Richard Lillington from London
We booked for 3.00 pm on Sunday afternoon, the last available booking. When we arrived and were seated most of the restaurant was empty, only two large family tables finishing their meals. The restaurant had obviously been busy and all the other tables had been cleared, with the exception of two, but not cleaned with some debris on the floor both on the tables and the surrounding area. So first impression was rather disappointing, only saved by the fact it is a nice, well appointed dining room, opening onto lovely gardens. The actual service and food however were very good.

I had booked on line and when we arrived there was a little confusion over the booking, fortunately I had printed off the confirmation and booking reference, so this was resolved. When booking, under the special requests I had advised that one of the party had an egg and nut allergy (quite severe, 9 year old), and I suggested some simple sandwich fillings for her, and reiterated this when we were shown to our table in the lounge as they seemed unaware of the request. The afternoon tea was brought for four people (booking was for five) and again I mentioned the egg and nut allergy. The waiter then went to speak to the chef, and some sandwiches were brought separately for my grandaughter. I have to say that the first waiter we had was very co-operative and helpful, as he resolved this with the minimum of fuss, and even brought her some crisps! There was a wedding party at the time in another part of the hotel and I think they were all rather stretched as when the first waiter went off duty things became a little slow. Other than this slight criticism, the surroundings were lovely and the food was good.

An excellent dinner. Food was perfectly, beautifully presented, with great flavours. Service was excellent - very attentive but not overly so.

Nicely appointed restaurant within the hotel, with comfortable furnishings and tables spread out so you're not on top of another party. Food was good value, well presented and tasty. The menu had something for everyone and all in our party chose differently which was good to see. Sadly, for a Friday evening the restaurant lacked atmosphere, we were only one of four tables all evening and my only criticism was that service was a little slow at times for the number of covers but saying this we would go back again as all of us had a good meal!

We took our grandaughter for afternoon tea and it was better than we had hoped for in every way. The new lounge was an enjoyable experience and we looked into the dining room and we will coming back for a meal at some point. Thank you very much.

The restaurant is beautifully decorated with plenty of room, the staff are attentive even though there was another large group dining at the same time as us. The food was delicious and so beautifully presented, the staff knew who was having what so didn't need to keep asking each time a course was served. This is our second visit in 4 months and we would come back again. Highly recommended

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.
