    Excellent food.
    Good ambience
    Service slow - we were waiting at least 20 minutes for the first course after ordering.
    However we enjoyed the meal greatly.

    My wife and I went to celebrate our wedding anniversary on the recommendation of local friends who have already dined with you twice. Nothing disappointed. The food was excellent (we opted for the mushroom mousse and the duck egg starters followed by beef and lamb main course) - exquisite taste, great quality and quantity and lovely presentation. The staff were very friendly (but in no way overbearing) and the service was great. The ambiance was also terrific and the pricing was most reasonable. My personal budget meant that I didn't go for anything to "far through" on the wine list, but the Merlot that I went for went down very well! Only downside was of my making, in that I parked in the wrong place (outside the Health Centre entrance - perhaps blinded a bit by the tennis court lights and so may have missed some obvious signage - so had to enjoy a bit of a trapse through the hotel area itself. But other than that, an excellent way to enjoy an anniversary. Thank you!

    Good. Nice evening and good to see it full.
    Service v. Good
    Coffee cups NOT suitable.....let the 'experience' down! Assume it was meant to be 'farmer like' - didn't fit. OK for kids...not double espressos!

    Are late Sunday afternoon - lamb roast
    Lamb was nice
    Good portion size
    Roast potatoes were dry
    Portions of horseradish, mint sauce and extra gravy were a bit stingy
    Restaurant looks nice but atmosphere not great, some background music would help

    Lunch once again was very good brought friends for the first time but once again let down by miscommunications between front of house and kitchen almost embarrassing 40 minutes wait for tap water is unacceptable and over an hour !!! For 4 bar snacks we thought we could enjoy with drinks pre lunch eventually having to rush them just to make it to our table on time. Although there was an apology for the delay we were still charged full price plus service charge for our computer error snacks !! Once at the table lunch as I say was lovely but no bread was offered this time it was on our last visit so not sure which scenario is the correct one. The restaurant has a vibrant feel and a good team of young and charming waiters and waitresses but lack a little structure management no sign of leader on this visit.

    As a club member, I see that the 20% promotion has not been applied to me bill automatically so perhaps you can credit my card accordingly. It is embarrassing to have to ask for it.

    The wine list is very limited (dumbed down)

    Management of the restaurant could be far better as no one really seemed to take responsibility for each table. We had to ask for our wine 5 minutes after our main course had been served. We were not asked how we wanted our meat cooked and had to personally request this. The beef arrived at the table without the waitress having any idea who had ordered their steak medium or medium rare. The steak was disappointingly far from tender and we were not charged on one of our steaks. I should have complained more about my steak but it was too embarrassing for our guests!

    The bread and butter pudding was more like a creme brûlée with all the sultanas at the bottom and it was far too sweet, as was the cappuccino.

    However, we all thought the vegetables were very good and my wife enjoyed her lamb.

    I do think for a hotel restaurant you should have a minimum dress code that is enforced because clearly, some people only possess a pair of jeans and, again, it is rather embarrassing to share the restaurant with people who think they have just "gone to the pub"

    I hope this helps but I shall not be rushing back, which is a shame because I like the club, style, position and facilities.

    Delicious food. We had one of the butcher's boards to share. Four dishes all beautifully prepared. And it's good to know that the food only travelled a few metres from the farm.
