    the staff were extremely helpful. food very good . I have a problem walking and on crutches and need support from my wife so disappointed you have no disabled toilet. the only gents toilet also had step steps which I was unable to manage so made things difficult. considering there where quite a few elderly people in the restaurant I am quite surprised you do not have a disabled toilet.

    Great experience, calm and helpful staff encourage a sense of being welcomed back to a place you belong to,a home you don't remember but feel comfortable in: all the food is appropriate, perfectly cooked and served.

    Well this is a nouvelle cuisine restaurant; the emphasis is on making the plate in front of you "pretty". Heaven forbid if I had asked for some potatoes, perhaps sautéed or some vegetables. It seems restaurants can only turn out some basics. Bring back real food.

    Delicious tasting menu, both vegetarian and pescatarian also available, beautifully cooked and presented. The venison dish was fabulous, melted in the mouth. Surroundings impeccable and interesting, with fascinating huge oil paintings on the walls. Wished we could have booked early enough to stay the night in the hotel. As a wedding anniversary venue, perfect. Staff helpful and attentive without being overbearing.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. Great food and service as ever. A lovely way to spend 4 hours on a damp November day.

    Beautiful old country house hotel in quiet location not far from Bath city. Loved the Drawing room with some great paintings and lovely furniture- hope to see the fire burning next time as getting cold enough now . Food was superb ( Sunday lunch ) with some little added starter extras and main course was lovely - nice not to see those huge Yorkshire puddings that every place seems to add with Beef . Had coffee outside on the terrace after , as the sun shone through briefly & also had a stroll around the large gardens which are lovely . Staff were so pleasant and polite and I liked the way each waiter announced what we would be eating as the food was served . Definitely a place to return too ??
