There’s a minimum charge which isn’t stated when you book and the menu on their website is different to the one you get on site… overall

We chose a dome which was very comfortable, light and airy and spacious. The coloured spot lighting was very effective.

The Domes are a bit of a let down when the pods (as you come in and see the pods it is wow) are done so beautifully. There was no music, lighting or heating in the dome area. The staff were friendly but didn’t know the menu. Inside the domes is just a table with a table cloth and 5 random chairs and a random lamp. I let them know it was for a birthday and I could see they had made other people’s birthdays in the pods special with signs and things but nothing for us in the dome. The food was okay but nothing to write home about. The worst part was how expensive it was. £177 for 1 starter, 3 mains and 4 drinks. Unbelievable. Would not go back to the domes.

Before going to ponsbourne I had heard some bad reviews but never thought it would be as bad as it was!!

On arriving to the table, it had no been set at all, however this seemed minor compared to the rest of the evening. For the money you pay you are expecting a level of service, which is in no way provided. 4 of us spent £315 and we only had one alcoholic drink each. The service was extremely slow and nobody was ever around to take your order (hence the one drink each). In between trying to look at the positives of the evening, the manager and one of the staff members then decided to start an argument with one another outside our dome! The staff were unprofessional and looked in way over their heads. we waited over an hour for the bill once finishing the meal and continuously had to keep trying to wave waiters down throughout the evening to order or get some sort of attention. The website promises a fine dining experience with excellent service, but this is not the case, which is completely unacceptable for the money you are expected to spend on the evening.
Our waiter Asiff was lovely and really trying, however was very busy with another 10 domes so to provide a good service was pretty much impossible!

I do feel if they are able to organise service and provide a higher standard this would be a great place to visit as the food was lovely and I couldn’t fault it, however this is no way a fine dining experience!

Place was amazing and so was the service of the waiters.
Food was a good 8/10 however the overpriced lamb chops lacked flavour.
Found the food to be massively overpriced so not a great value for money.

However the biggest critism is that our booking was at 9pm , even though we drove from Central London we arrived at 8.45pm. However, we were not seated until 9.35pm. After waiting 20minutes after the time we reserved out seats for, I asked them how long, the lady at the front desk said I will find out for you. She never did. So again after 10 minutes I went to the desk and asked and they said they will let me know but they never.

Food was lovely, staff were attentive, friendly and welcoming. Only thing which prevented me giving 5 stars was that the Dome was dirty. It would not take much more than a hoze and some washing up liquid to rectify this and it would make such a difference! Food priced at top end so dirty dome not really acceptable. We will definitely be back though so get cleaning!

The food was served cold as if it was precooked and not freshly off the stove, with raw fried onions beneath the the grilled food.
The lamb chops was raw inside and topped with whole load of sauce on top!!
the popadom tasted like they had been outside for a while so they were very soft and soggy!
the pomegranate orange blast mocktail was absolutely disgusting!!
I would not recommend this place we came here for our anniversary meal and was so disappointed!!
The drive there was nice but the food and service was an absolute shambles! NOT WORTH THE PRICE AT ALL!!

I brought my partner who has come to the end of her pregnancy and wanted to try and make it special and wasn’t offered much services to do so. Food was very average. For how much of a big thing it is to have a ‘minimum spend’ I was expecting much more. One good thing was the service, everyone was lovely.

Very nice setting outside a country house. We were in a dome with the comfy chairs and a great outlook across the gardens. However, the food was ok - nothing special and super expensive. Lamb chops were overdone and the rest of the dishes were pretty average. Being in a dome was nice but you do end up paying for it - for 4 of us - 3 starters, 4 mains, rice and 3 naans plus 2 cocktails each came to just over £300.

It is a lovely idea to have a pod or dome to yourself. While you see others diners, you have your own privacy. The service was very good and would like to thank Jack and Suraj for that. The food is good too, be it a bit on the expensive side. Overall an enjoyable afternoon out.

Really nice place but unfortunately our dome was right down the end next to the serving bin sheds so not the ambiance we hoped for. Weather was awful and the serving team did all they could to still make sure you were catered for. Food was really tasty. Domes were far too big for only 2 people, would 100% recommend to book a pod for only 2 of you, overall was a nice evening but not as nice as I hoped for when reviewing the website and the views that we hoped for.
