Expensive for what you get. I had the squid starter and it was really overcooked and rubbery. I let the waitress know but it wasn't taken off the bill. The crab tortellini wasn't as nice as it should have been for the price.

We had an OK evening at the Mitre. The starter was exceptionally good however we were quite disappointed with our seafood platter. The lobster and prawns tasted like they had been cooked from frozen, it was a very expensive platter but it wasn’t very big. No butter or mayonnaise coming with it and stale sourdough bread. I was a bit shocked to be honest. But the service was really lovely and the waiters very attentive and friendly. The desserts were a bit too sweet. There was a private function outside so we weren’t able to sit by the river, and I wished we had been warned. All in all I was disappointed, it was an OK evening but not what I was hoping for.

We had a great time, my only reservation is that the menu doesn't really cater for vegans and not much choice for vegetarians. There should be more options in all courses for veggies and vegans.

Such a beautiful room and a really wonderful location... esecially if you are lucky enough to be able to park !
The food however was distinctly average and poorly executed, and offered very poor value for money.
the ribeye steak was £33 for simple steak and chips, the steak was presented as a slab of meat, no sliced preparation, no garnish ...lazy execution .
Risotto was clearly cooked by someone who does not love nor understand the dish.
the cauliflower popcorn was claggy and missed the crispness that the dish would indicate.
The starter of tomato and Burrata was very good however.
Would return for the location and ambiance, but not for the food or service, sorry !

We had dinner on the terrace which has a very good ambience. The service was first class throughout and the food excellent. Squid starter was slightly overcooked - I'm sure they would have replaced it if we had asked, wasn't a big issue.
Reasonably expensive but will definitely return, this is a very good restaurant, great attention to detail but not fussy. Highly recommend.

We were visiting Hampton Court from South Wales, and we wanted somewhere nice to have a meal for my husbands birthday, so we chose The Mitre and we weren't disappointed.
The food, ambiance and staff were fabulous. If we ever go back to Hampton Court we would definitely re- visit The Mitre

A strange experience. We arrived half an hour before our booked dinner time for a drink in the bar. But we were told there was no bar. We were told outside tables were full but I could see from the restaurant an almost empty outside area. The food and wine were good but the service was efficient rather than friendly. It was not a cheap meal but we never really felt welcome. By contrast the hotel reception staff were very friendly and helpful.

Great experience. Wonderful food. We both had the Sunday roast. Really lovely both Beef and Lamb. Service was friendly and attentive. Lovely wine to accompany. The only slight moan I would have is I knew some of the wines on the wine list and there was at least a 100% mark up on the ones I knew (I know all restaurants do this). All in all can’t wait to go back.

Service both very poor and slow. Had to wait ages for main course and one beef
lunch was very fatty. Avocado and prawn starter serves in cocktail glass with
knife and fork with no plate - where are you supposed to rest your cutlery
between mouthfuls, on the table - yuk. Not very smart and chic.
Standard of dress for men was bad. Flip flops and shorts is not something
I would expect in the restaurant of a 4/5* hotel.
Wines very expensive. Will not be returning or recommending to friends.

I booked lunch for our wedding anniversary, they brought a little after s saying happy anniversary but the waitress took it to the wrong table, even though they said that’s not for us but we will have it anyway !! Our table constantly got overlooked such a shame as great location!! I will book any special events at a different hotel,
We won’t be returning.

Food was great but service was a little slow, however not in a hurry so not an issue. Lovely waiter but a tad inexperienced, suggest more staff training required. Very attentive initially but as the restaurant got busier we were ignored and wine we ordered to go with main course did not arrive at all. Was deducted off the bill but still disappointing.

We had been brought afternoon tea a present. The food and the service were good. We even added a glass of champagne. It was a enjoyable experience until we went to settle the bill / pay for the champagne.

On top of the champagne the added the following to the bill:
- an extra £10 because the price of the afternoon tea had gone up since the voucher was bought!
- an extra £10 gratuity which when pushed they conformed was optional.
Needless to say we queried both and both were removed. And as a result we decided not to leave a tip.
As locals we did used to use The Mitre hotel a lot up until around 8 / 9 years ago when the service / food dipped and 'extras' starting appearing on the bill.
We had been looking forward to going back following its rennovation but left feeling that nothing really had changed.

I am so disappointed about our dining experience at the Terrace. It was my friends 50th birthday party, I called ahead before I booked a few months ago to make sure we would get a good spot, however we were so sad to be put on the lower terrace at 19:15, on picnic tables, amongst all diners who were finishing up ready to go. Within 30 mins the terrace was nearly empty which made it soul less. I had already asked immediately upon arrival to be seated on the actual bustling and busy terrace where there were 2 tables for 6 free at the time only to be told that there was no availability to move. This was a special occasion and I booked months ahead. It just went from bad to worse from then, with food being late and rose glasses filled just that little too full to make sure we would order an other bottle. We then complained again and ask to move which was now possible! So seated at the terrace where the whispering angel bar is we then had our meal, this is obviously where we should have been seated immediately on arrival. The actual food was delicious when it finally arrived though. And we were offered to not pay for the 2 sharing snacks we had at about £17. A hefty bill later, about £470 for 6 people, we left unsatisfied and a bit sad as we had planned this evening for a long time.

I am afraid the service was terrible. We sat there for 3.5 hours and still had on our table at the end of the sitting the dirty glasses from our welcome drink and food plates. We were not asked for top ups, and we had to walk to the bar each time for service. We were very disappointed.
