I just love this place. Food, ambience, service and value for money are all excellent. Good menu choices and everything cooked to the highest standard . Enjoyed a beautiful evening meal and an excellent breakfast in the restaurant both were exceptional. Waiting staff were attentive and couldnt do any more to meet your needs. A big thank you
Top quality Sunday lunch, tender beef, perfectly cooked vegetables, red cabbage, cauliflower cheese, roasted potatoes, parsnips and carrots, superb Yorkshire pudding. Excellent service and ambience. A delicious and satisfying experience!
Very impressed with food and sevice. Food was delicious and beautifully presented and the staff couldn't have been more attentive. As a bonus the bill was less than expected, very reasonable. Really enjoyed the experience and will definitely return.
It was are 34 wedding anniversary so I book the penventon restaurant. For 13.30 we arrived at 1300 and booked in with a waiter. Got a drink from the bar after waiting 30 minutes I went to ask for a menu and was booked I'll get you some and would tell Maggie , a waitress come out and apologized to us, took us to a table and left us saying someone would come and take are orders. So at 1430 my wife asked a waitress were are menus, she apologised again and went to the head waitress Maggie, she came straight over and said you've ordered, which was a surprise as we haven't seen a menu YET. Anyway after another 30 minute. Of watching other people and Party's coming in and getting there Drinks and Meal before us we got the waitress again and told her we are leavin, she got Maggie and Maggie took me to a quiet place and apologized to us for the treatment we had experienced. Asked me were my wife was I told her outside in the car, Maggie said can I go to her, so we went outside and spoke to sue, maggie took are email and said a manager would get in touch on monday. Which NEVER happened so I rang reception on Wednesday and spoke to a ladie called Hannah, how tryed to get a manager to speak to me, but there was no one. Hannah then said she would get Maggie to ring me when she comes in. Which Maggie did and bless her remember us and apologized for the manager not ringing. And offerd us a free meal with Drinks, But as yet we haven't got the said voucher. Our e/mail.
We are frequent users of the penventon hotel facility's and after 20 years of using your hotel we have never been treated like this. TO BE HONEST YOU RUINED ARE WEDDING ANNIVERSARY.
The location is good with easy parking. The hotel is nicely old fashioned and here is nothing wrong with the service. However the food was a big disappointment. Uninspiring and tasteless. I can’t see us coming again.
Lovely Sunday lunch, attentive staff and a very fair price. My only comment would be that the room was abit cold.
This is my third visit and it never disappoints. Fantastic decor and a quiet restaurant.
Birthday complementary bubbly, good food and excellent service.
Excellent meal and Restaurant service, but lacking service prior to entering the restaurant The man who greeted us as we arrived, was polite, but did not offer to take our coats until i asked him to. We enjoyed a pre-meal drink in the bar lounge, but no one appeared to present us with menus, or tell us our table was ready, as when we have previously been. It appears that meals can now be eaten in the bar lounges, this does not look good, and spoils the atmosphere of the Penventon that we used to be so fond of.
We had a lovely meal served by friendly conscientious waitresses.. would have just preferred my bread warm with my soup..
We will return soon and happy to recommend...thank you
What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. The food was fresh and displayed well. We had the 'afternoon tea'.
The area was pleasant, my only criticism is that it appeared to be on the corridor where people went to their rooms, but it wasn't too busy.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
I think it was very good value.
Amazing service fantastic food, amazing place to eat love it here.
Excellent as usual. Thank you Penventon
Good selection, well presented. Quick, friendly, attentive courteous service.
Welcoming, pleasant dining room
Lovely place. We went for High Tea and they were very accommodating to our party which had a wheelchair user. Food was delicious and Maggie our host very friendly and helpful. Would definitely go again.
I can not
Praise the level
Of service enough. Thank you so much
Always a pleasure to dine at the Penventon...good food & attentive staff
A great place to spend an evening. Fantastic atmosphere and great food.
I love the ambiance of this hotel, it is like stepping back in time.
The people could not have been more helpful and immediately on our arrival we were wished happy anniversary and given a complimentary glass of Prosecco, a lovely touch.
Love the food. Great staff.
A lovely meal as always just disappointed this time as the kitchen had run out of red cabbage and mashed Swede and carrot. We probably should have booked an earlier slot. Otherwise a lovely afternoon at a fabulous hotel.
What a super Sunday lunch ! Fabulous roast beef and a glass of red wine for £13.95...can't beat that !
Friends get together and birthday. All good as usual
Absolutely amazing service food was lush and was treated like a princess cant fault the staff they were impeccable
Beautiful hotel and food amazing. Shame they ran out of custard for our crumbles.
Excellent. Maggie andher team always give us first class service. Thank you.
Really enjoyed our visit to Penventon hotel, Dinner was nicely presented, though we thought perhaps a bit more vegetables would have been nice, as the ones we had were perfectly cooked,
This was our third visit for Sunday lunch. The roast was excellent and good value in such pleasant surroundings and with very attentive service. I have only marked the food down as the creme caramel dessert was curdled and not as good as usual.
The noise level was good which is very important to us although I must say the restaurant wasn't crowded. We ate early. No pianist this time.
The restaurant manager remembered us from previous visits (in a good way) which was appreciated.
Lovely atmosphere, comfortable lounge.
The afternoon tea has changed unfortunately. The quality seemed to have deteriorated since we last visited in May.
lovely setting, service was good, shame about the food, had the set menu of catch of the day, sea bream ,cooked ok but bland no seasoning,served with new potatoes, again no flavour,hard with raw broccoli, nob butter,being a chef would not serve that. had mrs ps tirimusu.oh dear enough said.
I couldn't fault the staff who were exceptionally polite and attentive, the restaurant was lovely and the menu was good with a nice selection at reasonable prices.
Unfortunately on my visit the food didn't quite live up to the rest of the elements in the restaurant. The chicken dish I had tasted good, however the chicken was dry and although there was a delicious sauce on the dish, there simply wasn't enough sauce to make up for the dry chicken.
I ordered the white chocolate and berry cheesecake for pudding. This was a real letdown as the cheesecake itself was more of a blancmange/jelly consistency rather than a creamy cheesecake and had no flavour whatsoever. I love puddings and I ended up leaving some as it just wasn't a nice experience to eat it. The sorbet with the cheese cake was however delicious!
They may have been having an off day or a different chef, but I definitely had high hopes for the food based on the rest of the hotel experience and was disappointed by what I was served.
We have been dining at the Penventon Hotel for many years and witnessed many changes during this time, both with regard to the management team, staff and varying menus. The food is never disappointing and of a high standard, sometimes service can be a little on the slow side, but the staff are always very polite and friendly. One negative point however is that the lunch menu has now become quite small and limited and this is probably reflected in the restaurant being very quiet most lunch-times. When my husband and I dined there this week, there was only one table of four in the restaurant with us which didn't bode well with regards to the ambience. May be the management team need to look into lunch-time special 'offers' as they had a few years ago, which, for regular diners, would make dining there more interesting.
Great restaurant and delicious food. The staff are always polite and friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. Highly recommend the restaurant. We were hoping to order the vegetarian Sunday roast but were too slow, so if you want a vegetarian meal the staff are more than happy to take a pre order over the telephone before you visit
Regular customers to this superb establishment run as always with that personal touch so lacking in other hotels
Superb, friendly service giving extremely good value for money. The food was excellent with large amount of choice and the food and drink were very reasonably priced for a 4star hotel. The waiting staff were attentive but not over bearing. All in all an excellent experience.
Yes this is a very good experience and wrth a trip.do it now
Excellent food, service and venue. Knowledgeable staff on drinks (bar) good service in the restaurant (although a little surprised to have someone serving food with long red false nails) Food and wine excellent. Most enjoyable evening.
Service was quick and friendly. The surroundings very pleasant and the food good value.
My wife and I stayed at the hotel for two nights, we had both breakfast and an evening meal in the restaurant. Even though there was a wedding at the hotel the food was amazing, came out fast and the presentation was great.
Had a lovely Sunday lunch, good value for money, only down side service was a little slow,but all very polite and helpful
