    The food was delicious but this rating is let down due to the standard of service received. NB: We had over heard staff discussing the fact that the restaurant wasn't busy at all due to an event at Eden Project. We were taken to our table in The Chapel and seated. We were drink/food menus and we had chosen what we wanted. After 15 minutes of being seated, the waitress came over to take our food order but seemed suprised that I was asking for a drink due to them not yet taking the drinks order. Our order was taken and I asked to keep the drinks menu to which they waitress explained I can’t due to the lack of menus. Our food arrived, (free starter/starter/main) and it was delicious and I cannot fault it and it was worth the money. During our meal, we were sat with empty drink glasses on our table, no one had came over to offer another drink and these were to the side of the table to make it obvious. I then managed to get the attention of the waitress who came over and took our drinks order. 1 drink arrived within a number of minutes but the other was awaited. 10 minutes passed and I looked over to the bar and they then began pouring the drink. The waitress came over with the drink and apologised that the barrel needed to be changed. I am unsure if they had forgotten as they should have mentioned it when they brought over the first drink instead of leaving us waiting. Overall, our experience in The Chapel was reasonable but I have had better service in a busy chain restaurant.

    Perfect in every way. Service was professional but personal, we didn't feel uncomfortable in such a nice restaurant. The food was outstanding, amazing!!! Great selection, with a very nice vegetarian option.

    Superb food, it really was fine dining. Staff were excellent throughout, including in the little bar where you wait to be taken through for your table. If we'd been staying longer we would have gone again! Definitely recommended.

    The setting was lovely and the food was excellent! Unfortunately i think more staff members are needed and I feel the staff they do have need more training. Very slow on drink service, I think it took 25 minutes for my drink to arrive. Lots of apologies from staff members so they are aware of the flaws. Wouldn’t stop me going back as the food was really delicious.

    We stayed at the hotel and booked a meal here so that we did not have to drive to another venue. We had a warm welcome and had a choice from a well appointed menu. The food was well presented and tasted fabulous. Service was a little slow but then we did not have anywhere else to be so it was perfect.

    Nice setting. Visited on a Sunday evening so fairly quiet. Service was good. Starter of pulled pork was tasty and well presented. Main course of turbot was also well presented. Side order of vegetables lacked seasoning. Portions were meagre to say the least. Two courses for two with one glass of wine a bottle of water and tip came to £135. I consider to be poor value for money. Pity really because the hotel was fab.
