Good choice on menu, well cooked and excellent attentive (but not intrusive) service. However the venue has a very serious access problem for cars which needs to be addressed quickly.

    Lovely meal, great vegan options - it was recommended to me via a vegan Facebook group - although sadly the chard radicchio salad was nowhere near the quality of the last visit, it was delicious first time. Amazing vegan chocolate brownies for pudding and great service!

    We booked a table for 12pm for Afternoon Tea. It was easily the best we've ever had, and we've had quite a few. The little cup of soup blew my mind, it was such a lovely touch. The puddings were lush, the quiche was perfect and the roast beef on one of the sandwiches was cooked to perfection. I also loved the gold dust on the berries, such a great little detail! We'll definitely be coming back. Also, the teapots were amazing, we spent ages admiring them. It was nice that the tea poured properly, we've had some tea pots that just spilled tea everywhere.

    Booked afternoon tea for 6 people including one child and a baby for a birthday party. We brought our own birthday cake and asked for the staff to bring out at the end of the meal, which they agreed. They left us for over half an hour before clearing our table, and myself having to ask three different members of staff about the cake being brought out. We weren't the only ones in the restaurant who complained as a near by table party of two waited over an hour for their main meal. Food was amazing, but the service was diabolical!

    This was a dreadful lunch experience. Very nice staff but the qualty, quantity and value was very very poor. We were three people and chose the following. Two soup very nice then the meal went downhill . One starter goats cheese mousse with beetroot, tasty but absolutely miniscle portion not even a fork full, two wisps of cheese, beetroot and four small salad leaves. Mains were two people with pheasant breast fondant potatoe a, parsnip two ways and wilted splinich . We had a minute portion of very tough and overlooked pheasant, two soft strips of soggy parsnips a little parsnip sauce and a tiny portion of wilted spinach. The portion was so small we were expecting some vegetables. We asked for a bowl of chips to supplement the meal. The third had the roast of the day, tough , thin hard beef a Yorkshire pudding like dark brown rubber and completely inedible. We were very polite with our complaint to the manageress who offered her apology and offered free deserts or coffees. We did not want this and I asked the chef to come and explain what he had presented I had reserved some of the pheasant for him to taste.. He declined telling the manageress the pheasant was bought in. We settled the bill paying for only one pheasant meal deducted and the chips were given. With a bottle of wine the bill was £62.90. Altogether very poor and tragic that in such superb surroundings in Lancashire in a splendid setting such a poor quality expensive meal was ruined. If the restaurant wants to go up market this offering would need to be drastically improved starting with a new chef who on second time of asking refused to come out and speak to me

    Excellent food. Good value. Friendly staff.

    We were very disappointed with some of the food we were served and the time it took to be delivered to our table. My wife and I had the Pheasant which was both dry and very tough. Whilst the restaurant didn't appear particularly busy, it took 90 minutes for the six of us to complete our meals. I registered my complaint whilst paying for our meals and the receptionist asked if I wanted to speak to the Manager, which I declined to do.

    Unfortunately, not a lot of great things to say is very much average and overpriced! My roast beef toastie was described in the menu as having caramelised/sauteed red onion and horseradish cream, the onion was raw and I had to ask for the horseradish...the Beef bland. My children's pasta and meatballs at £8.00 each was indeed overpriced. Barely any sign of tomato and 3 tiny meatballs (£2 extra) which had been deep fried to within an inch of their life.... It's such a shame because Samlesbury Hall is such a wonderful place for families and Betsy Bumblebee and Crafty Ange were sheer joy for both children and parents. Simple food can be wonderful if good ingredients are sourced and cooked by loving hands!
