The Brasserie at Wivenhoe House Hotel Ratings and Reviews
When we first arrived we were taken through to the lounge area when in fact i think the guy was meant to take us all the way through to the restaurant as we had booked a table for 8, he sort of walked us into the lounge, stopped and didnt say anything just walked off, so we sat down. About 5 minutes later one of the girls noticed us waiting and eventually took us through to the restaurant. Other than that slight mishap the whole meal and service was outstanding, I have visited many posh restaurants across London and this is on par with a lot of them. The last time I visited this restaurant it was in the newer part of the house behind but on this occasion that part was being refurbished so we were in the main house which was beautiful and cosy. For 2 drinks, 2 burgers and 2 desserts the bill was £48 + tip which was very reasonable for the class of the restaurant and service! I would definitely visit again!
Although two of our party of four were disappointed with their Boeuf Bourguignon in that it was not shin of beef as on the menu but probably stewing steak, the other two of our party unreservedly enjoyed their Duck leg. Two puddings were enjoyed. Champagne by the glass is a special bonus.
Excellent value for money on the fish Friday deal! However, our main meal took a while to arrive at the table, as wasn't cooking whilst we were eating the starter. Which is ok but it was getting quite late. Therefore the staff began setting for breakfast and our table was neglected in regards to additional drinks etc. Service needs definite improvement.
Booked a table for 2 for Sunday lunch for a special friends 'special' birthday. The atmosphere was relaxed and inviting. Food was lovely and a little effect made for my friends birthday. I noted when booking that it was a birthday celebration although I wanted to keep it really low key - there were birthday sprinkles on the table and a plate stating happy birthday was presented with our desserts - really lovely low key touch - perfect. The staff were really attentive and the place outstanding. After the meal, we sat out in the garden which was chilled, relaxing & inviting - top marks....looking forward to my next visit.
Beautiful venue, attentive and friendly staff. My wife is vegetarian and Wivenhow House had an excellent selection of dishes for her, which is u usual but very welcome.
I told them it was our anniversary and arrived to find our table decorated and they even gave us a special anniversary desert to share. Brilliant chefs, staff and atmosphere. Well recommended.
Nice meal and excellent sandwiches, although they are no listed on the room service menu rather than the lunch menu. I decided to have a main dish and thought it was rather expensive as vegetables/potatoes were an extra. But at the same time it was delicious.
The Split Pea and Ham Soup was outstanding as was the beef bourguignon - the meat was plentiful and tender. Crepes Suzette cooked at the table by the cheery French waiter. It was my husband's 60th birthday and the kitchen produced a lovely china plate with Happy Birthday piped in chocolate - nice touch. Very good value for money. Staff were very attentive. Would certainly recommend - we had a great evening.
The food was truly amazing, we had the Sunday 3 course meal with wine. It was delicious and the staff were really welcoming and friendly they helped us choose from the lovely menu as it all sounded good and couldn't decide. Great food great atmosphere and great staff will be definitely going back soon.
I am most thankfull that I chose Wivenhoe House Hotel Brasserie for my wifes Birthday lunch. The entire staff were very professional . The menu would cater for anybodys taste. The brasserie was a pleasure to dine in and the grounds were a very relaxing setting. This is somewhere where we will dine again. I have already recommended it to my friends.
I came here for my 19th birthday, they put table decorations on and they made me a birthday plate for dessert. The atmosphere is lovely and the food was lovely, we didn't have starters but I wish I did. The value for money is incredible to, the bill was cheaper than what I expected as I myself ordered steak and a Med glass of wine! Definitely be visiting again, lovely experience.
