Lovely atmosphere. Enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea with my mum and sisters. The service was brilliant and there was more than enough food and tea and it was delicious! Would definitely recommend!

We had a lovely meal - the set menu was very reasonable, we both enjoyed three courses and coffee.

Our first drinks order was slightly wrong, but amended when I queried it, and we were brought a glass of wine intended for the table next to us. Unfortunately, these appeared on our bill, but the member of staff apologised for this and issued a refund.

The music was a touch loud and not necessarily in-keeping with the general atmosphere - Elton John and some soft country-rock didn't quite fit the opulent interior.

Overall, we would recommend this restaurant and have done so to several people since visiting.

We are frequent diners in the Restaurant and that is probably why we are getting a bit fed up with the lunch menu. The choice is limited and it never changes. Last year we had the Heroes menu and that changed each week for lunch so that was great. The food is always excellent but a bit more variety would not go a miss.

Nearly very good. Drinks were very slow and then held up as sent to table instead of lounge where we were. Excellent steak but disappointing overcooked veg. Pleasant staff but might need more training

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.

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.

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.

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.
Thank you

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.

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,
