    The food choice was limited and what we had was bland and tasteless. Once served initially, just let to it no one asked if everything okay or we required anything else. Poor experience. The night after we ate outside bar and service and food excellent, limited choice but tasty!

    Stayed at the hotel two nights and dined in Hawkers both evenings. First night the food was good, the staff pleasant but the service was awful. Painfully slow and a very long wait to complete a meal. Spoilt the evening. Second night I ordered a steak - - mistake. Probably the worst steak I have eaten. Tough beyond words. And at £29 was poor value. Wanted to send it back but that meant my wife would be eating her meal on her own. Really disappointing. Worst possible scenario was watching the chef in the open kitchen dip his finger into a pot of something he was cooking and then put his finger in his mouth to taste. Whatever catering college did that chef go to ?

    Had a very good time there having afternoon tea. The prices are reasonable for a high-standard hotel and the service very good! They also allowed my dog to come in the lobby and sit with us! Pet friendly places are always much more appreciated to me and people who have their lovely furry friends. Will definitely go back.

    Awful. Turned about 10 mins before our booking only to be told the kitchen is not open. Staff were extremely rude and unhelpful. There was no care that we travelled over an hour to dine. Would not even acknowledge their failure to inform us of that the kitchen was not open. I would never ever book anything associated with Double Tree/Hilton again. They have no concept of customer service.

    Didn’t realise it’s part of a hotel. That being said, we gave it a go. Octopus salad was good but the spicey chicken wings were not spicey, in fact was bland. My steak was overcooked when I asked for medium rare. They did offer to take it back and get me another but for me- once you mess up a steak, I lose hope in the rest of the menu. Ordered some chips anyway. They tried to charge for the steak until we pointed it out. Over all- not very good. You get whay you pay for. It was quiet, which was an indicator! Nevertheless- had a good catch up with a drink and some chips. Would not return.

    From the start we felt rushed , the waiter took our plate away before even asking if we had finished our starter and we had not ! The mains were awful my friend had a burger and the plate was dripping in grease and was not nice . I had a sirloin steak and the steak had a massive amount of gristle and the red wine jus was burnt and was so thick it didn’t come out of the pot . The manager had come over half way to see how happy we were we told him what we felt and he didn’t offer any alternative. The waiter again came over and tried to take the plates away without asking if we had finished again . Then when we had said we were not happy with the main meals the manager wasn’t very helpful and said we needed to pay then when we said again we were not happy to do so then only offered a small discount. The overall experience was poor and very disappointing especially as we haven’t been able to go out in so long and the menu was not the same menu as described on open table . Seemed much smaller . It was not a cheap place the bill came to £97 for food that was not very nice . Not even offer a free drink for being upset . Customer service has most definitely left the building

    We were greeted with a warm welcome and was shown to our table straight away, the waiter sat us down, however forgot to give us menus. We then ordered drinks to be told they ran out of the spirits which was a further wait, once ready to order we were then told all the pizza had ran out, appreciate it’s very busy, but would of been good if told when just sat down as over heard other people disappointed by this too. The food however was delicious! The waiting staff were polite and apologetic.

    The atmosphere outside on the decking is lovely in the evening, really cute lights have been put up and the heaters are well placed and useful, however, I visited this restaurant maybe a year or two ago and had an amazing good quality meal and cocktails with my Mum and it really felt like we had gone for a posh meal at a fancy hotel, however, I went more recently and everything has changed except the price. The food was more like simple pub food you’d find in a Wetherspoons, which is fine if you’re not charging near £15 a plate ... cocktail prices were also outrageous at £10 a glass and were watery and you couldn’t even taste the alcohol. It’s such a shame because this was one of my most recommended spots and now it feels like the whole restaurant has been replaced to cater to a different audience but is operating under the same name :(
