    We had booked afternoon tea and prosecco, the ambiance is excellent calm and friendly, however the meal was a little disappointing, the sandwiches were made many hours before and the bread use soft and full of fluid, the sourdough used was difficult to eat, the other aspects very acceptable

    Had snoozy boozie lunch with my hubby for my birthday. Three courses plus bottle of wine is excellent value. Every table in the restaurant is good. We were warmly greeted when we arrived, decided on a chilled glass of champagne while we choice our meal. Good range for each course and lovely wine options. Very attentive service throughout & lovely relaxed ambience. Everything was first class. Finally enjoyed coffee & cocktails in the stunning bar. Highly enjoyable afternoon.

    The New Year's Eve dinner was excellent. However, whilst the waiting staff were friendly , there was obviously a shortage of staff, which made the experience in ordering and being served strained. There was no space on our table for the wine to be comfortably placed, and when we asked for a stand, we were told there were none, so the wine had to be kept away from our table at the end of the room. There was a wedding reception at the other part of the hotel, therefore guests spilling out of it to the lounge and bar area meant that seating was compromised for diners wishing an after meal drink or coffee, and perhaps to see in the Bells. I do think that there should have been discussion on managing two large events to ensure service and space was not minimised to give precedence to the wedding party.

    We had a very good meal with quiet but efficient service. My only comment would be that coat storage is a bit of a squeeze to say the least. Has been that way for years at the Bonham. I'm sure it could b improved though. People do wear coats in winter.

    Have been going to No. 35 throughout the year for a number of years now. A group of friends always gather before Christmas and have a great time catching up. This year though the consensus was that the meal was a little disappointing....the starter portion was small - and obviously prepared in advance and sitting waiting as it was served very quickly after the order was taken; the turkey didnt have much taste with some potatoes undercooked. For me the cheese platter was disappointing too with only two 'bland' cheeses. We all came away from the meal still feeling hungry and disappointed. This is the first time I've had to use the word 'disappointed'. I still recommend No 35...the service is wonderful and the staff are wonderful but the Christmas dinner off was not on par as other years. I don't want to leave the table still feeling hungry.

    Excellent venue for annual Christmas catch up with old friends. We like the lack of music so we can have a conversation and the food is great - although folk in the group mentioned they would like to have Christmas pudding on the menu! We'll be back next year - God willing!

    The Bonham is a little out of town. However, for a little walk, it’s like finding an oasis🙏🏻. Decor is beautiful. Staff very attentive. They had live music when we were there (perfect). The food was absolutely divine. The venison just melted in my mouth (complements to chef). A wonderful evening all round. Well done guys.
