The Elms menu offers versatile all-day options, with rustic sandwiches filled with classic additions like smoked salmon and cream cheese, as well as other home-style dishes like beer battered fish and chips and vegetarian gnocchi. Moving into the Brookes Restaurant, there are modern fine dining treats, starting off with British flavours, seen with the Stowell Park venison tartare with quail's egg and sourdough. The bold, modern flavours continue with the mains, with roast squab pigeon served with potato pavé, red cabbage and chocolate.

    It was a very, very good standard of service and food, and we would heartily recommend it.

    Better choice of meal in the bar rather than the restaurant. However, it's personal preference and others may enjoy rabbit and pigeon.

    The surroundings and ambience were, as usual idyllic. The service was friendly and efficient. The dinner was excellent and, considering the quality of the restaurant and food, reasonably priced.

    Lovely cream tea sitting in the garden. Scones were very fresh and the clotted cream and jam were delicious. Good choice of teas.

    The Service and the food was excellent but the venue lacked atmosphere and was quite characterless.

    Superb experience and in the words of Prince Harry, 'to die for.' The meal was super and also the service. We had vouchers and would not normally have come here. However, we are pleased that we did and hope to return soon.
