We enjoyed our meal with friends at the Convive restaurant; good service and tasty, well presented food.
The restaurant is typical "conference type" - lots of easily moveable tables, clean and well laid out, but no atmosphere. I suspect it would be very noisy if busy...

The staff we’re friendly but not to the point of spoiling the experience by continually asking if everything is ok like some restaurants. The food was very good, Pork and Seafood linguine were both very tasty.

The food was good. Not very hot though. I found the decor to be out of line with the Jacobean Hotel. Too modern. It was very noisy. The staff were very good at service but they were all wearing jeans?? Found this a bit strange as we were in a 16th century hotel. Maybe this is the way forward but not for me

Would definitely recommend a visit, but confirm any offer if booking the hotel and ask to be seated away from the bar area

Beautifully cooked food although a little on the expensive side. Worth it though as a special occasion.
The serving staff were v pleasant & attentive but a little on the slow side considering the restaurant was relatively quiet.
All in all though a very pleasant experience. Thank you x

If you are staying at the hotel, then the restaurant is convenient. The service was excellent. We both chose the pasta, which perhaps was a mistake - a lot of pasta and not a lot of sauce. Desserts were good.

Service was rushed, as if they wanted you out, hubby still chewing food and they took his plate & napkin away. Pre paid for dinner back in Febuary, but was still charged for it, when questioned , they took it off the bill, but put an optional service charge on of 4.75 !!! Needless to say we asked them to take it off, we tip what we want not what is expected.

Had the sunday lunch. Onion soup was a bowl of cream and the 3 of us had the roast. Rock hard roast potatoes a bit of veg and 2 slices of meat - £17.50. Appalling value

The restaurant was clean and tidy, as it always is, and we were seated in a nice booth.
The menu has changed since our last visit and is now printed on a large card, more like a chain restaurant.
Our order was taken fairly quickly, but we did have to say 'could we also order some drinks?'.
About 15 minutes after our order was placed, we were informed that there was no smoked salmon left, as a large party had used it all, so we had to choose another starter. Everything seemed to take a long time to be delivered.
When it came to the dessert, we both ordered the treacle tart. After 15-20 minutes, we were informed that 'the kitchen had looked everywhere, but couldn't find any!
When I paid the bill, I said that we hadn't had a particularly good experience and that it was disappointing, particularly as it was my Dad's birthday (which I had mentioned on the phone the previous day to Gleb, although no-one said anything on the day). The person apologised and offered me a free glass if prosecco, which I refused as I had already had a glass of wine and was driving. We also needed to be elsewhere by this time.
All in all, not what you would expect of a restaurant of this standard of hotel. If the kitchen cannot cope with large parties as well as the normal service, then this really needs to be addressed.

I’m sorry to say we didn’t enjoy our meal.
My husband had soup when he he said was ok, I had prawns in tempura batter the batter was soggy on the bottom and very bland.
Mains we both had fish and chips... I wouldn’t call the giant fried wedges of potato’s chips! The fish was well cooked but the fish, “chips” and mushy peas all very bland no seasoning on anything.

Two guests couldn't eat beef and ale pies as pastry too hard to pierce with fork, so added gravy supplied which was very salty so left meals as couldn't eat them
Told staff who deducted one, not two, from bill which was still almost £100 including coffes and soft drinks
Poor value for money
Manager told chef who sent apologies but was too busy to come out personally. Restaurant wasn't that busy
Disappointing reunion of friends who hadn't met up for a while

The restaurant has been divided into two separate dining areas. It is now cluttered with the table being to close together and noisy. Most of the original waiters and waitresses have either left or been moved on. On Sunday the main main course was no longer available at 2pm and several other diners left without ordering. This was our favourite restaurant but not any more we will be going elsewhere.

Food very enjoyable, although ham hock croquettes could do with a bit more taste. Unfortunately, we were sat in the side that's been screened off and were with parties having afternoon tea. It was very noisy. The staff were all very attentive though and helpful.

The service was great but the food was very average. I'm sure that I would have been served the same fish and chips main course in the Stables pub on site for less than half the price of Convive.

The restaurant always looks clean and inviting. We were offered a choice of tables, so that was good. The food was of a good quality and nicely presented, but I had to report that my chicken breast was too tough. Another piece was prepared, but it came after we had both finished eating. My only constructive criticism of the waiting team is that one person serves the table, as it led to confusion.

The decor is contemporary and pleasant. The food selection was adequate but not extensive. The wine selection was very good and reasonably priced. The service was adequate but not exceptional, being told that you need to hurry up and pick your desserts because the kitchen staff want to go home is not ideal! its worth a visit, but it needs better staff to make it special and a must visit. The music being played was not conducive to a relaxed meal and was very much out of place.
