Every little detail was excellent, the service food and surroundings. The chicken liver paté was exceptionally good and the fish platter.

    Extremely disappointing. Waited more than 12 months to get a table here as they don't always accept bookings from non-residents but we won't be going back unfortunately. The atmosphere in the restaurant was completely different. It's lost its cosy, intimate feeling. The staff, although friendly, lacked knowledge about the place and the food etc. Most of the staff also looked like they needed tidying up a bit, especially the lady who seemed to be the restaurant manager. She had no idea how to speak to guests either. We weren't offered water at the table, nor bread. The food was very bland, and not cooked particularly well. My starter of butternut and ricotta, was almost inedible, the butternut was almost raw. We had finished 3 courses in an hour which isn't a very relaxing evening. The gin and tonic apero was good, and the barman very pleasant. The bottle of wine was good too ! A very expensive night for not good food. What a shame.

    The elms is an expressive building and the interior is superb. There is a big fire crackling in the grate surrounded by large settees and comfy chairs. There are several reception rooms equally lovely. The overall ambience is top quality. The restaurant is a large room with tables situated far enough away from each other as not to be crowded. I did not have a favourite dish- they were all exquisite . The staff were friendly and efficient .

    My sister and I took my mom for afternoon tea for her birthday. It was wonderful! We turned up early after our manicures at the spa and were accommodated straight away. Staff were very friendly and helpful, the tea, cakes and sandwiches were delicious and they even included some birthday treats for my mom! Quality service, would definitely recommend!

    The food was exeptional, service on point. We loved being seated in the bar until our first course was ready too. Real fires, warm and friendly staff and even though it was very family friendly - we loved the intamacy we still had in what seemed to be a seperate adult dining room - it was just perfect size, not over crowded in the slightest. We loved every second and will certainly return - perhaps for a stay with our daughter!

    The hotel is beautiful and the food was lovely.
    The staff are enthusiastic but have no idea what they are doing! This is a place desperately in need of an experienced maitre d'.
    Some attentive staff on reception and the bar would add to the overall experience.

    We enjoyed our stay at The Elms and the breakfasts in the restaurant were excellent. However the dining experience was not so good. The menu was difficult to understand and required interpretation as to what the dishes involved. The waitress, although charming, needed to visit the kitchen to ask what our choices consisted of. My starter included diced chicken, I was expecting a sort of terrine but it was sloppy and very vinegary, and I dislike vinegar. There was no vinegary clue in the name of the dish. My husbands beef dish included a piece of steak about two inches square and some diced meat under a cube of mashed potato. It was a very small meal. We declined dessert. We felt the meal was overpriced and the menu descriptions were uninformative.
