Went here for afternoon tea with a friend for her birthday. Was lovely and beautifully presented. The staff were friendly and helpful, couldn’t do enough for us. We sat in the lounge, as the restaurant was noisy with other guests, it was more comfortable and cosy there.

    Booked a spa day for my partner's birthday. Really enjoyed the spa experience and treatments included. Lovely relaxing atmosphere and staff very helpful.

    However, this is not the cheapest spa day in the world as food was not included and we had to pay for food and drinks on top.

    The chicken and ham hock starter was really nice and also the sticky toffee and prune dessert.

    We had a fabulous evening as an anniversary treat, both sampled the Christmas menu which was delicious, accompanied by some super wine. The staff were welcoming, attentive, friendly and professional, without being intrusive. Highly recommended and we will come again!

    This was our 2nd visit after being impressed the first time and again it did not disappoint- this is quickly becoming a favourite destination

    The duck was amazing as always ( highly recommend) the octopus was delicious too
    The Venison got a big tick as did the Turkey and the steaks if I’m honest I was gutted they’ve removed the brownie and replaced with a chocolate tart but this was the only failing of what was a superb dining experience

    I booked lunch at Charlton House as my sister and I were celebrating her birthday with a spa day.
    The spa was excellent, however the lunch was a bit disappointing. we ordered the chicken and tarragon sandwich and the burger to share. the chicken sandwich would have been much better with a lovely white fresh bread, rather than the toast it came with. the burger, we were told would take 25 minutes. when it arrived it was rather dry and flavourless... a bit disappointing.
    the chips one the other hand were excellent.

    Firstly tried ringing to make a booking twice, with no success. So managed to book online. Beautiful setting, great staff but the quality of the food was disappointing. Steak was tough and the cod was in a wish washy sauce. My favourite wine Sancerre was also at of stock.

    Excellent food and service. The halibut main was particularly good. I wasn't as impressed with the cheese board - the cheddar was a little sharp, the brie was bland and the Stilton needed to be warmer and a bit riper - it was too chilled to taste it. My wife's chocolate fondant with pistachio ice cream was absolutely amazing and made up for the cheese board.
