Great staff, very fine food and
Lovely Sunday lunch, the monkfish was excellent, very pleasant dining room. Relaxed and comfortable dining.
Only gave service 4* as they forgot my tea!
Lovely venue for Sunday lunch. Tasty roast beef and succulent pork eaten in a beautiful setting. Our guests were very impressed. We look forward to returning soon.
Dear Angela, Thank you very much for your lovely feedback. We're so pleased you enjoyed your Sunday lunch and hope to welcome you again soon. Kind regards, Ben Young Managing Director
Our first visit but won’t be our last! Lovely bright rooms excellent service from staff. We went for lunch which was excellent and a glass of fizz for my husband whose birthday it was is a nice touch. Only suggestion from me, if I was pushed, a couple more choices on lunch menu. But whole experience was excellent.
Dear Libby, Thank you for your 5 star review. The team will be thrilled to read this and I'm pleased to hear your husband had a lovely birthday. I hope to welcome you again. Best wishes Larissa Hardy Guest Relations Manager
Amazing old building with lovely food and attentive staff. It was a very enjoyable lunch and we will definitely be returning
Dear MelanieS, Thank you for your review. Everyone will be thrilled to read this and we look forward to welcoming you again. Best wishes Larissa Hardy Guest Relations Manager
The positives, lovely venue, happy staff and availability to book at short notice. On the flip side, we waited 25 minutes for food after being seated for our tea and the very polite waiter told me there would be other flavours of sandwiches on the stand after I told him I don't like salmon. When it arrived my mum ate the salmon sandwiches and I ate the cheese. No exception to my request! The scones were hands down amazing! The chef's cakes were average and we left them after tasting them, I looked at the other tables and they'd done the same.
Overall, a special venue but feels too big for the amount of customers that were actually in on the day - it felt empty with not much atmosphere.
Dear Hoolie, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and I'm pleased the staff were happy and you liked the venue. Naturally it's disappointing to understand there were some issues with the sandwich choices and cakes. The chefs would happily make different flavoured sandwiches so please accept my apologies that this was not communicated correctly and the feedback will be passed onto the relevant managers. I hope to welcome you again. Best wishes Larissa Hardy Guest Relations Manager
We went for the fish & chip supper and were very pleased, it was cooked to perfection with a lovely light crispy batter. Everything was really good and we will definitely be coming back with family and friends.
The service was perfect and it was nice and quiet. We enjoyed it very much. Thanks to the staff & the chief.
Dear EdithT, Thank you for your 5 star review of our fish and chips that were cooked to perfection. We do offer 'Fish and Chip Fridays' where you can enjoy them for £8.95 per person from 12noon - 6pm. I hope to welcome you again. With best wishes Larissa Hardy Guest Relations Manager

I took my boyfriend out for dinner to celebrate his birthday. Lovely place. The food was amazing! Cooked to the perfection! I would highly recommend!
Dear HimeshaW, Thank you for your lovely review and I'm delighted to hear your boyfriend had a great birthday with food cooked to perfection. I hope to welcome you again. Best wishes Larissa Hardy Guest Relations Manager
Very friendly staff . I noted on my booking that it was my daughters 16th birthday so when we arrived they had decorated the table with gems which was a nice touch. I phoned before hand to check that I could bring a cake which was fine the staff brought it through after dinner with the sparklers I had brought and sang happy birthday, again a nice touch. I only didn’t give the Alverton five stars on value on this visit because I thought they could do with having a set two or three course menu additionally to the other menu on a Saturday night, as it worked out quite expensive when paying for six people. The food we did have was absolutely beautiful and well worth the money. An absolutely lovely time spent at the Alverton once again
Dear Anonymous, Thank you for your lovely review and I'm delighted to hear what a great 16th birthday your daughter had. I hope to welcome you again. Best wishes Larissa Hardy Guest Relations Manager

Dear KevinG, Thank you for your fantastic five star review of Sunday lunch. I'm delighted to hear the food, staff and service was excellent. I look forward to welcoming you again. Best wishes Larissa Hardy Guest Relations Manager
When we arrived they thought we had booked for brunch but quickly rectified this by re laying the table. All of the staff were friendly and efficient.
The food was outstanding we enjoyed every bit and I thought it was great value.
I was just a little disappointed that even though I had put the occasion was birthday the restaurant did not acknowledge this in other restaurants I’ve had simple gestures like a small cake with candle.
However the overall experience was really great so this did not spoil it.. it would have been the icing on the cake! 😂

I always enjoy Sunday lunch at The Alverton but was disappointed that, on this occasion, the food was not hot. The brussel sprouts were undercooked and like bullets. Not up to their usual standard.☹
Dear AngelaH, Thank you for your review. It's disappointing to hear your Sunday lunch had some issues. I have passed your feedback onto the Head Chef and Hotel Manager so we can ensure this doesn't happen again. If you wanted to discuss this further with me, please email email@example.com Best wishes Larissa Hardy Guest Relations Manager

Brilliant Sunday lunch. Lots of food. good quality. The service was spot on through out the meal. But the experience started in the bar. With the very knowledgeable bartender, extensive gin range and comfortable surroundings. Can't believe I've told you about this gem
Dear MaggieJ, Thank you for your 5 star review. I'm so pleased you had a brilliant Sunday lunch, with spot on service from the bar staff through to the restaurant. We do hope to welcome you again. Best wishes Larissa Hardy Guest Relations Manager

Ate here before an event at the hotel. Seated early so quiet to start with. Ordered rump steaks but were offered rib eye at the same price as the rump had run out. The steaks were well cooked and tender with hand cut chips and a nice salad garnish. Decent house red. Finished with coffee. Good food and service and reasonably priced.
Dear David C, Thank you for your lovely review. I'm delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your rib eye steak, wine and service. I hope to welcome you again. Best wishes Larissa Hardy Guest Relations Manager
Easy to book with good follow up confirmation and welcome. Friendly attentive staff and good food. Would definitely come again

Beautiful setting. Lovely ambiance in restaurant. Service was excellent. Our food was beautiful. The only exception being the chocolate fondant which was overcooked but this would not put me off returning.
Dear Anonymous, Thank you for your lovely review. I will pass your feedback regarding the fondant onto he Head Chef, but otherwise I'm delighted you had you had a beautiful evening in the restaurant. I hope to welcome you again. Best wishes Larissa Hardy Guest Relations Manager
Everything was perfect. Staff easily able to handle both wedding party and those just taking dinner. Food was above reproach. Waiting staff charming and quietly attentive.
Why not in the Michelin Guide?
Dear Blobby, Thank you for your lovely five star review and for thinking we should be in the Michelin Guide. I'm delighted you enjoyed your visit and both the food and staff were to a high standard. I hope to welcome you again. Best wishes Larissa Hardy Guest Relations Manager

Dear SJCB, Thank you for your lovely comments. I look forward to welcoming you again. Best wishes Larissa Hardy Guest Relations Manager
Soup ok not very hot. Fish excellent. Disappointed veg did not arrive until half way through meal even after a reminder. Potatoes were not cooked.
Don't consider it was good value for money.
Don't know that we would go again.
Disappointing as it was an outing for my 93 year old mum.
Dear Philip D, Naturally, I'm very disappointed to read your comments and to understand that on this occasion you did not enjoy your lunch. Thank you for speaking with me earlier and passing on your feedback. I'm pleased we were able to resolve this. I look forward to welcoming you again. Best wishes Larissa Hardy Guest Relations Manager
We came for afternoon tea with family who were visiting and a 7 month old - the service was fantastic and I felt very welcome with the little one. The setting, food and the teas were lovely - and a brilliant way for the grandparents to end their trip! I'd never visited before despite being local, but definitely will again as the lunch/dinner menus and the bar looked amazing.
Dear KateS, Thank you for your lovely review of our afternoon tea. I'm pleased the whole family enjoyed it and the service was fantastic. I look forward to welcoming you again. Best wishes Larissa Hardy Guest Relations Manager
Beautiful Sunday lunch, very attentive staff and a beautiful ambience. Also an amazing wedding venue!
Prefer not to comment as not the usual standard.
The food was not the usual standard sadly. My husband and I have visited the restaurant on many occasions in the past 11 years including arranging several functions.
The staff on duty, in the restaurant, were very understanding and excellent service.
This review is sent with love as the Alverton is one of my favourites.
The food was excellent as usual but the experience was marred by poor bar service which appeared to be due to a large wedding party being in progress.
Lovely attentive friendly staff, excellent food and wine! Great value and superb surroundings.
We booked on line and did state it was a Birthday and mentioned again at the table it was my mums 80 th. No member of staff made any reference and nothing was done for us to recognise this.
We sat outside and had drinks having started a tab.There were a lot of staff walking past and no one asked if we wanted more drinks even though we had emply glasses, my step son acted as our waiter.
My sister had shell in her crab and her steak was tough.
I feel the whole dining experiene did not come up to the standard would expect in line with the price we paid.
This was our first visit to the hotel and won’t be our last. The food staff and location were all excellent.
The grounds and hotel itself are just beautiful .. pulling up into the hotel took my breath away .. and walking inside with the hallway was amazing. However I would of thought there would have been someone to greet us in such a grand setting . We found our way to the dining room and got a drink from the bar and were shown to our table .. the food was amazing and the service just as good, however we weren’t offered bread as the other guests were !
Apart from this we really enjoyed our anniversary dinner
