    Venue is fantastic. Waiter was very good. He realised our coffees hadn't arrived until our lunch did, which really wasn't an issue however when I paid he had deducted the cost for the coffee. I hadn't mentioned a thing but he felt it was appropriate. Very good service indeed. The only improvement that I felt could have been made was the quality of sandwich. The brown bread was thin and just not bread I would have used. I had the med veg and was expecting grilled slices of veg with goats cheese but it was tiny chopped up veg. I personally wouldn't have served like that. It was still a good sandwich but being entirely honest could be improved. Everything was still fantastic and I'll definitely visit again.

    Was looking forward to coming here for a lovely destination lunch, however left severely disappointed. The view and restaurant setting was lovely, even on a rainy, overcast day. However, the service was ridiculously slow (even for a relaxed leisurely lunch - 2.5hrs!), the staff on the floor acted like he wanted to be anywhere but there and made us feel uncomfortable. The food was average and overpriced. The lamb was nice but nothing special and the burger tasted like an Iceland frozen job. Awful. Definitely not somewhere we will be coming back to.

    I think there should have been more staff , as I had to wait to be allocated to my table and also wait to pay my bill, my food was nice, but would have liked a larger menu. I have called on 3 occasions and I wanted to stay in the lodges, but after enquiring, and asking staff about the lodges, and not very helpful , I will give Milk wood a miss, but thank you for the experience. I don’t think I would recommend.

    As usual, the food was great and reasonable accommodations were made around our dietary needs. A great entertainer (duo) were on this evening. The restaurant was busy and the staff seemed to struggle to keep up at times, forgetting to do something and having to be asked again, twice. Atmosphere good all evening.

    I must start with, I am not a foodie, but I know my food.   My husband and I decided to take my inlaws for a nice meal at the restaurant since they haven't been. We have dinned here before just the two of us and were never impressed with the food. However, we decided to give them our business. Now, MWH describes their dining as 'Inspired to create unforgettable memories'. Nicely worded. So, on to the food. I had a soup of the day which was leek and potato and it could not taste any more bland. No taste of leek of any kind. The bread that came with it, on the other hand, was nice. Other parties had mussels and said they were great and very tasty. For mains, I had a simple Margarita, which is the simplest pizza one can order.  This has three ingredients, base, mozzarella and fresh basil. The basil was missing! When I said to the waitress it was missing she relayed that message to the chef and the chef said it was in the sauce. A. I'm pregnant and my taste buds are heightened B. I know my basil. Plus, the cheese was not mozzarella and it was made to taste like triple cheese pizza rather than a simple Margarita I was expecting. Others had two beef burgers and a steak. Now, we all know what a beef burger should look and taste like. This was something else. It was tough, tasteless, overly processed and did not look like beef. All came with dry chips. We all love chips and we barely ever leave them on the plate, right? These were all left on each plate. The steak was ordered rare but came out med and served with chips and cherry tomatoes. Again, the chips very dry and left on the plate. All food issues were related to the waitress that said will pass the feedback to the chef. But look at the view, it's pretty.. The final bill did not indicate any goodwill of any kind. So, all in all, pretty poor lunch experience for us. We decided not to give them any more of our business until they've improved the quality of food or until a new chef is employed.

    Not a great experience, stayed there for weekend, only ate at restaurant one. 50% of party had cold food, 2 were undercooked. Only offered drinks when we arrived, took 30 minutes to clear dirty plates, additional sauces to go with meals didn't arrive at all, and when we queried it, we're told they hadn't been ordered. Overall poor experience.

    The restaurant was quieter than we expected, especially as there was entertainment. The entertainment was enjoyable but had it been busier there would have been more atmosphere. The food was excellent and the service to our table was fine. We did notice that the young man who was serving the majority of the other tables was fantastic. He was so busy and worked so hard. Very pleasant and Constantly checking with the guests if they needed anything and clearing and relaying tables quickly. His efficiency and professionalism was really noticeable. He is to be commended.

    Sunday lunch. The beef was rather thick cut and tough. Three slices was way too much to chew through. The Yorkshire pudding was magnificent. Vegetables nice and crunchy. My dining partner had the turkey and cleared her plate so must have been good. Still I can't understand putting greenery on a roast dinner. And even less can I understand it on the dessert and the custard!!!!!!

    Food from the special board was delicious There was a singer as entertainment, who was quite crude for a restaurant setting and was far too loud, we could barely have a conversation Very disappointed that they had run out of Vodka (the drink I prefer) Staff were very attentive, couldn't fault them.

    A disappointing visit, we booked in as we’re staying in one of the lodges for my birthday. Starter came and was still frozen inside then couldn’t make a mojito as no mint. We thought we would play it safe and have a gammon but it was a lot of fat not really cooked well enough and frozen chips not really what you want to be paying £18 for. The lady that served us was exceptional and took the starter of the bill. All the makings of a great restaurant just not good enough. Explains why it was quiet on a Sat night!!

    This was the second time we used the restaurant during our stay at the resort and when there the first time noticed the fish and chips looked good so ordered that the second time. It came as I had seen this nice large piece of battered fish but….. where was the fish inside my batter?! I expected chunky white fish as the batter was about an inch thick but literally loads of air inside with a little piece of wet clearly frozen fish hiding in the depths of the batter! Very disappointing.

    A lovely experience. Food excellent, ambience excellent. Waiting staff very friendly and charming, but could do with a bit more training? but kind and friendly. The setting is magnificent with marvellous views. Wish it was nearer to my home as would love to eat there on a regular basis! Alwyn Page.
