    A menu that, although compact, gave a choice for all food tastes. Spacious eating area so you didn't feel like you were sitting right on top of the adjacent table. Would definitely go again as I suspect the menu changes on a regular basis

    We had a lovely time and the servers were very attentive and friendly. There was a lovely choice of food and it was very good quality. It was quite noisy in the restaurant but it was a Saturday night and there were large groups of people. It was nice to receive a Happy Birthday surprise. Overall, it was a lovely meal and enjoyable evening

    Food is just about average! None of it warm enough. Served by obsequious servile staff trying too hard to please with their insincere platitudes! For what it is, far too expensive! Try instead some of the many and varied local pubs

    Whilst the food we ordered was very enjoyable the menu was extremely limited and had no red meat in the mains. In fact the only meat on the menu was a starter with duck and a main with chicken. Apart from that service was good enough but the cost was expensive bearing in mind we both had fish to start and fish as a main course.

    Wedding present voucher for Afternoon Tea. There was a specific Tea menu and a chest of Teas where you could see the tea bags to decide! Our sandwiches and scones were delicious and freshly made. Would highly recommend Carey’s Manor.

    Having enjoyed dining here many times before, we now feel the menu choice and service are in decline which is disappointing. All the staff were polite but you could easily see experience and knowledge is limited. A good sommelier is key to assist guests with their wine choice which we also miss. We really hope things improve when we return later this year.

    Pleased to be staying at Carey’s Manor for a few days but hugely disappointed that we cannot have dinner tonight in the Cambian restaurant because you have a wedding on . We booked the restaurant at 10.00 this morning and received a phone call at 1-30 to say the restaurant is not available to residents today - Really!!! We were given no alternative eating places. We actually feel quite unwelcome and at your prices, that is not a feeling !!! I welcome your reply

    Having eaten at the hotels other two restaurants we were expecting similar excellent qualities so we were disappointed. The staff were charming. The pork tomahawk was tough and virtually inedible. No waiting staff asked about our food. Salmon was excellent. The ambiance was non existent unfortunately. And overpriced. Especially compared to the Thai and French restaurants which were both excellent. I’m sorry to write this but was sent this feedback form.

    Lovely spacious restaurant with a very relaxed atmosphere. Staff were all very friendly and attentive without making us feel rushed, went above and beyond to help us celebrate our anniversary. Great choices on the menu including vegan options (yes options and not just one dish!) Great drinks choices, even offering to make cocktails that weren’t on the menu. Cannot praise the staff enough for their customer service. Would recommend and definitely would return.

    The starter soufflés were exceptionally good .the main course lamb rump was too rare on one and overall tough. For the price not good value at all. The wine ordered was not the one brought I chose a 32 pound bill charge was 47 pound but they did correct the pri e. They also corrected the lamb by cooking more. But by that time I had eaten mine . The service charge of 12.5% was automatically added which again I questioned and did not pay.

    Food was very good quality. Drinks were the same Service was very good as well. Unfortunately the menu on line was different to what was actually available which was disappointing due to the vegan options being more limited once there. The online menu included many more options. However once we established there was still something on the menu we liked, the manager took our drinks off the bill. That was wonderful as we had ordered champagne. so this was a much appreciated and genuine good will gesture. I would definitely go back. Everyone was friendly and helpful too, so this made a lovely difference too.

    I booked table for breakfast before my SPA day. I booked for 7:30 but upon arrival I was informed that restaurant does not open until 8am on Sundays. So waited half an hour and then had to rush eating. We ordered eggs benedict and eggs royal. Both were decisively basic and average. Chef could not be even bothered to put a touch of chives on top. And the muffins at the bottom were a bit dry. Coffe and service were really nice but overall I was a bit disappointed.

    The Cambium is comfortable, very clean and pleasant the staff are attentive and very helpful. In this respect I cannot fault it. The vegetarian mains were very overpriced for the food that was provided, however. The butternut squash pasta was an incredibly small portion and really quite bland. We are very happy to pay a reasonable price for good food, but this was incredibly overpriced for what it was and vegetarians/vegans were in this respect not well catered for and I would not recommend or re-book. We had eaten in the Thai restaurant the previous evening and whilst the prices were similar the food was of a far better standard for vegetarians and I was happy to pay the price and would happily return.
