For a truly exceptional dining experience in stunning surroundings, The Bracebridge is the place to be. Sitting perfectly on the edge of Bracebridge Pool, with décor that exudes luxury and opulence, and a high-class seasonal menu, this is the perfect spot to spend time with friends and family.

For a more relaxed atmosphere, you can enjoy the equally impressive culinary creations in a more informal setting outside. More casual than the main restaurant, but just as decadent, The Terrace is a fantastic place to meet with friends and take in the wonderful views of Bracebridge Pool – perfect on a summer’s day.

Set against the picturesque backdrop of the majestic and historic Sutton Park, offering a unique and memorable place to dine, drink and relax.

My partner and I had a wonderful evening here with beautiful food and I have to say that the service was excellent. I have heard alot of negative comments about this restaurant since it reopened so was a little unsure about what to expect. Thankfully our experience was wonderful and we look forward to another visit very soon.

Great food and service in idyllic surrounds.
Only downside was the coffee, but the food was delicious.

The service could not be questions, as all the staff were very attentive and professional.

We all liked the ambience, but it was found to be quite noise at 19:30 on a Friday.

The Menu choice was less than expected. The Tuna was found to be slightly under cooked & a 16 oz Rib eye steak was a bit tougher than expected.

But all in all the four of us had a very enjoyable evening and will be returning.

Nice location great food the view on the web site is great. Our view was watching the chefs cook and people visiting the toilet. We arrived by Uber unfortunately the resturant WiFi wasn’t working there was no phone signal. The resturant called for a local taxi which would arrive 10-15 20 min later no taxi. Resturant called to check arrival time 2-3 min we waited 35 min before calling a different taxi which arrived within 5 min. Shame as it spoilt a good evening.

After reading some less than complimentary reviews, I was pleasantly surprised. We visited on a Tuesday night. The food ambience and service was excellent. We had chicken tangine and the duck, delicious. The new refurbishment is done to a high standard and relaxing.

I had a lovely time here and I would definitely recommend Bracebridge, the food was excellent, service was impeccable and the location is delightful. My only criticism would be the acoustics it seemed rather loud in the restaurant however there was a loud table beside us too... I will be going back.

Such a shame this place didn’t live up to expectations. Setting is beautiful, food is good but the staff are rude & disinterested. The meal was very expensive & they also added service charge for poor service! Wouldn’t rush back or recommend it to anyone.

I live locally but took some highly valued German customers - they both remarked at how good the food and wine was. The location speaks for itself - fantastic.

We were really looking forward to coming as we used to love the Boathouse. When we arrived we were told there was no Lobster, Crab, no fish and chips. Our waiter was excellent and full of apologies. The starters we had were good. We all had the roast beef which was fine but the Yorkshire Puddings were hard and had a consistency of cardboard. So on the whole we were very disappointed and we're are unlikely to return.

The restaurant was way too cold, we had to keep our coats on the whole time!
I ordered eggs royal but very strangely a crumpet was used rather than a muffin?
We were also baffled when the waitress had to come and tell us there were no sausages available for a sausage sandwich! Only to then come back out to deliver the food with sausages on the plate! I wonder where they came from? Especially as it was not very busy at all.
I would like to try the dinner just to see if the restaurant copes better at prime time.

Against
Soumellier was sullen and inattentive. No drinks offered one seated. Superfood starter lacked flavour. Not tempted by any of the dessert options
For
Mains were very tasty, outside space very pleasant whilst we waited. Restaurant ambience very pleasant and the South African waiter was good.
Summary
Have eaten much better food and had better service for a smaller bill.

A lovely restaurant by the lake. Service was excellent. Two ladies were sitting on a table near by and they were so loud it spoilt the meal. The starter of crab was excellent. The fillet steak was over cooked for the main course.
