Disappointing menu in outstanding surroundings. The menu was largely fast food but was not served with any speed. Baked Camembert was tasty but could have been hotter.

My peri peri chicken.burger was bland and dry. Chips were cheap frozen ones sachets of sauce were unopenable.

My partner’s pizza was ok but could have been warmer.

Raspberry cheesecake was too sweet. Crime Brûlée was good.


We will not return until main restaurant reopens with a proper menu.

Great ambience with beautiful grounds. It was a bit slow to get food but I think they were busy. They are dog friendly and I felt very comfortable with my dog :) overall a great place. The only small bugbear I have is I contacted to ask to add an extra person to my booking to make 6 rather than 5 and they said they didn’t have space however there was definitely enough space in our gazebo and seating.

We had a really lovely afternoon at Stoke Place. I had requested a gazebo and we were given one closest to the lake which was a lovely backdrop to our lunch. The setting couldn’t have been more perfect.

In terms of the food the all day menu doesn’t include anything that the kitchen could get too wrong: pizzas, burgers, sandwiches so we were more than satisfied with our orders.

The serving staff are friendly and efficient and considering how spaced out the seating is now, due to Covid, I felt they did an excellent job servicing all the tables.

Stoke Place is definitely somewhere you would come for the setting and for that we loved it and would return.

Love the dining room. Socially distanced measures in place. Sunday lunch three course lunch is excellent value. Would be good to have a more exciting vegetarian option. Good chicken and lamb rump choices. Red wine was ok for the bottomless brunch but would also have liked to have an option for procesco.

Responded on 1 December 2020

Dear Harminder, I'm so glad you had a good meal with us in the King and Lamb. Unfortunately with Sunday lunch only the wine is bottomless however in future we do also offer the Saturday Brunch which includes unlimited Prosecco for 1.5 hours. I have passed on your comment to the chef regarding the vegetarian options.

I loved dining in the Wigwam, which looked beautiful! With the strategically placed patio heaters and cosy blankets, it was surprisingly warm...no coat needed. The food was great and the cocktails were yummy. I'd definitely recommend for date night. My only criticism...not great for disabled access, as I had to go up and down 2 flights of stairs plus the ground was very uneven in the wigwam.

First time dining here. Asked for tap water and we were given a jug of sparkling water apparently left from a brunch a day before. Disgusting, as we all had a drink from it. The waiter did apologise. My little son had to wait 1 hour 20 minutes for his pizza, Although we have asked for it to be brought with our starters. The service is very slow. I had to always try to grab attention of the waiters to be served. Although, there seemed to be enough waiters around and they were friendly, I think they were all very inexperienced and very poorly trained. The food was of a good quality, but a long wait. The place looked Covid compliant. I do not think I will be going back to dine there.

Visited Stoke Place for an afternoon tea n the King and Lamb restaurant with my husband. The food was nice and the staff were very friendly and professional. It was a very cold day for August so too cold to walk around the grounds (wasnt wearing a coat). The restaurant was very different from the images shown on the website! I wouldn't say it was a purpose build restaurant just a dinning room. I dressed up as the king and lamb resturant looked quite up market. I felt very overdressed as all the other guests apart from one table were wearing shorts, t shirts and trainers!! I even overheard the group of girls saying that they had worn the wrong outfits Haha! It was £45 for aftetnoon tea including service charge. I would of liked the offer of more sandwiches as pefer to lots of cakes but I know this option is not standard everywhere. The host was really friendly and quite funny to. He told us some history about tea. Overall I thought afternoon tea was very good.

Dear dockers Please note due to covid regulations we are not allowed to set any of our tables so I'm sorry it appeared sparse. I am really glad you all enjoyed your afternoon tea.

I’ve stayed at Stoke Place several times previously and follow their social media pages. Recently saw their post about Bottomless Brunch which piqued my interest. I was not disappointed, it’s great value for money and delicious. The drinks were flowing! It’s ideal to enjoy whilst catching up with friends or family. We had a fantastic time today and really enjoyed the food. My Wild Mushroom Fricassee was delicious, the chips were perfect and the Pannacotta dessert was heavenly! Service was totally on point.
The decor in common areas has undergone a refurb since my previous visits and the place looks great. They’ve got good measures in place regarding Covid-19 too. Definitely book in a visit, you won’t be disappointed.

We had high expectations from the reviews and photos, so were extremely disappointed when we arrived and even more so after we finished eating. We had not been to the restaurant before and on arriving at the hotel, there were no directions to the restaurant when we located it the restaurant was much smaller than it looked online, no resemblance to the photos, no ambience and the table was dirty.
Obviously due to the currently situation with COVID it was much quieter as there were less tables, this should have meant that service would be excellent. Aside from taking our order and bringing it to the table we did not see any members of staff as they were constantly in and out of the room.
Fizzy soft drinks were served out of 2 litre bottles, when arriving were flat and tasteless (certainly not any of the major brands) and when charging over £3.50 for a pint is not acceptable.
The medium rare steak I ordered arrived well done and the food was over salted, by the time a member of staff appeared for me to tell them my husband had practically finished his salad. I advised the member of staff that was over cooked, but felt that I had to eat it as my husband had finished his meal and we would wait too long for a replacement (max of 2 hours given at the table). There was no real apology except to say he would advise the kitchen and certainly no recompense. Due to the length of time service was taking we didn't have any time to order a dessert as our time was up at the table.
An expensive meal with no enjoyment.

The starter was really good and the main however dessert was disappointing

I was there pre covid and I remember it being magical however due to covid the ambience has considerably reduced which is a shame. Maybe try and pleasantly increase the ambience as going out we want to escape covid alongside managing it. Some thought should be given to this

Went on a Eat out Help out offer, received a phone call to check if we were coming, which was fine but on arrival the table wasn’t ready at 6pm so was taken to the bar where there wasn’t any seats and didn’t want to stand there as no social distances, we had passed rooms where seats were free so took us back there, then said table was ready!

The table was cleaned while we sat but I asked for the arms on the chairs to be cleaned, they only cleaned my chair!
Food was okay not a wide menu, not the menu that is shown on website!
On the menu fish and chips £13.50 we paid £15.00 Caesar salad £12.00 we paid £12.50
We had the cheeses board which joke not value for money.

On entering Stoke Place we were impressed but unfortunately the impression didn’t last,
on being taken to our table I noticed a large puddle by the table which I mentioned to the waiter, he shrugged and said it’s a leaky radiator and walked away and left the puddle, which was still there when we left, Health and safety didn’t come into it!
