Lovely relaxing afternoon tea though scones were still a little frozen in the middle

The food was truly amazing. The staff were able to explain each dish and the little extra complimentary tasters were sensational. We would love to dine there again

My friend and I were a bit perplexed as to why the tea was served as teabags and also with no description of the tea verbally or in the menu. Together with quite hard water this didn’t make a very good cup of tea. We both thought this was quite central to an afternoon tea menu and would return if it had been better. The cakes and scones were very nice.

Fabulous, exceeded our expectations in every way. A proper dining experience at exceptional value. Wife loved that we could park easily too - saves the heels apparently! Great food with choices to suit everyone, lovely pre dinner nibbles and chilled bubbly, excellent cheerful service from everyone, and lovely surroundings. We were surprised at the bill in a good way too - exceptional value. Would be a great venue for a special meal and the hotel has a good spa too & is close to Cheltenham so would make for a good weekend treat too. Outstanding all round.

The ambiance of the restaurant, plus the hotel & grounds in general, is lovely. The price of the 3 course lunch menu is very good, especially as it comes with nice breads and an amuse bouche. Bar prices, on the other hand, are extortionate. Over £10 for a Pimms and Lemonade was excessive, especially as one of them was under sized, being served in a smaller glass (with no explanation). The lamb main course was a disappointment. Fatty, tasteless and accompanied with a couple of unpleasant tasting pastes that didn’t suit the dish at all. All other dishes (amuse bouche, starters, the other mains and deserts) were first class. Service was acceptable but not quite matching the ambiance of the restaurant or quality of food. Coffee and tea is an additional £4.50 per head (again, a little excessive) and advertised as coming with ‘a chocolate’. On both occasions that we have dined here the chocolate hasn’t been provided until we asked. Overall, not quite such a good experience as our previous visit but we shall definitely return.
