The service was quite slow as there only seemed to be to members of staff on that was seating people, serving and running the bar. They were lovely and friendly towards us.

Always love this place, and without doubt my favourite place for Afternoon tea. The experience is made even better, due to the excellent staff, who can’t do enough to help, and keep us topped up with pots of tea.

Great service and good food. Would possibly like to see an afternoon tea option that mixes the sweet and savoury options together. Lots of puddings provided on the classic afternoon tea and all amazing!

These are odd times. Usually when we eat in the Earl restaurantwe are apart from any wedding reception that they have booked and we don't really notice until the upstair rooms comes to life around 8p.m. or so. This Saturday there was a small but loud wedding party in the restaurant celebrating their happy day. Cracking day for them but as we weren't on the wedding invite list our small party felt a little like gatecrashers. Nevertheless, the room was as splendid as ever and as always the staff perfect and attentive. Sad to report that the meal was fine apart from the fillet steaks that we ordered. I know that meat shrinks when it is cooked but what turned up on the plate was a very sad looking specimin that had seen better days. it looked so very lonely on the plate with some cracking chips, a couple of battered onion rings and a rather splendid tomato. I do enjoy a good piece of rare fillet but both mine and my friends fell woefully short of what I had come to expect from the Earl's kitchens. Maybe we just got there on a bad night for the chef. Apart from that, everything else was fine.

I took my mum as a treat for afternoon tea as they were still doing the £10 off pp, we really enjoyed it. The staff and setting was lovely. I don't think I would have paid full price at £16.95 each but would definitely visit again

Firstly the setting and Decor of the restaurant is excellent and beautiful Art Deco fixtures & fittings. There is plenty of room to enjoy and move around the restaurant. Excellent wine and drinks choices. Service was attentive and looked after every need. The quality of the food was excellent apart from the 2 lamb shank dishes where a little tough and not cooked for long enough. However the actual quality of the shanks was good. The restaurant staff apologised and gave us free deserts what was excellent. Would this stop me from booking again NO.. reason I feel that this was a one-off incident.. we booked for Christmas dinner 2019 and the food was excellent.. also booked for the Valentines taster menu so we are hoping that the food and ambiance is wonderful.. Also I’ve booked my parents into the hotel for the third year in a row so hopefully all goes well.. These surveys never seem to be acted on but really think if customers are using the hotel on a regular basis there should be an additional opportunity for a loyalty program etc..

The restaurant was very clean with great atmosphere. But let down by the fact that no one was around in the restaurant for almost 10 minutes to seat us and there was only one table occupied in the restaurant. Once seated we were quickly asked for our order and requested the waiter return after a couple of minutes once we had decided on our food choice. We then waited 15 minutes before we had to get up and track down our waiter who by now was taking orders from new arrivals.
The food was ok though the garlic mushroom starter was only faintly flavoured of garlic and the boiled parsnip (only one) presented was hard in the
middle. (would have been better roasted.
Customers who arrived at the next table ordered the afternoon and it looked to die for so will consider returning just for afternoon tea.

It was a really pleasant experience, the venue was excellent and had great art deco features, the staff were really polite and friendly.
I particularly enjoy steak which was cooked to perfection but the chips needed to be in a bit longer, everything else was perfect.
