    Friendly greetings on arrival. Taken straight to table. Drinks orders taken promptly. Carvery with good selection, meat in ample quantity, vegetable selection very good and all the trimmings. Desserts very good. Everything as it should be. Prices are a little higher, however, can only be expected due to the losses felt in the hospitality industry due to pandemic. Highly recommended.

    Such a find, great food, friendly helpful staff, respectful guests. All round a lovely hotel and restaurant in a beautiful setting which we never tire of going back to. Even when Prego is busy you still have your own sense of space and don’t feel jammed up to the next table. The menu gives a wide choice range so there’s always something to wet your appetite which leads to a tendency to end up eating too much because it all tastes so good. Whether dining alone or in a group you are always made to feel welcome and we can’t wait for our next visit.

    The carvery is back on and the food was lovely, loads of meat and plenty of veg- the red cabbage is delicious. Unfortunately the service let the place down, the staff are lovely and friendly but there doesn't seem to be any organisation. we had to wait for ages for anyone to come to the table to take the drinks order and we had already been to the carvery and got our dinner by the times the drinks came and the restaurant was really quiet so no excuse.

    Food was excellent however, described as having wilted greens with the salmon dish. When it arrived I queried as I didnt think it had any! upon further inspection there was 1 spinach leaf under the potatoes. I would have rather it was left off the menu in which case I would have ordered a portion of veg. Apart from that the food and service was lovely.

    We have been visiting Prego for the last 4 years apart from last year due to COVID. Although still value for money, little extras are starting to creep in. We requested an accompaniment with our desserts ie cream, ice cream or custard, to be told there would an extra charge £1 per request. I understand this isn't a great amount, but on all previous visits these were part of the meal.

    We are massive fans of this place and have come for many years as a couple and a family and normally incredible value for money when booking the package including overnight stay. We had come this time for our wedding anniversary and were looking forward to a lovely 3 course menu. Unfortunately for us the menu had been cut down and this meant less choice available, in the past there was a couple of menus and could pick of either if you paid extra . This time due to lack of choice I opted for soup and it was disappointing then the main course I always look forward too and again number of choices had decreased and you could order a chicken dish for example but what’s now changed vegetables for example you now have to pay for them. I understand the pandemic as been tough on businesses and I fully support but I think it’s important for customers this information is shared in advance so it’s less of a shock. My wife had Spag Bol and it was very bland, tasteless. This is one of our favourite places to eat so will just put it down for a bad night at the office

    Put off a bit on arrival as in our extensive travels over 3 weeks this was the only place where none of the staff wore masks! We both had linguini which was delicious. Buzzing restaurant and not too noisy as Italian restaurants often are. Staff were very friendly though the coughing was a bit worrying!

    Beautiful restaurant, the room is very nice , clean , staff were lovely and on the ball, chef was polite and served us a generous plate of meat all very nice . We are visiting Northumberland and loving the warmth from people and the superb cottage which we are staying in. The Derwent Manor Hotel is just brilliant! We had a roast on sunday and then re visited for a cream tea on the Monday 😋 Very very good. Staff were brilliant.

    We had the 3 course meal as part of overnight stay package and we were not disappointed. Lots of choice with gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options all included. Food was really good and very nicely presented. Wine choice was also good. But it was the staff that made this special they cant do enough to make your stay wonderful. So friendly and helpful.
