                                            Great service, food was brilliant, the best sea bass with squid ink risotto I have ever eaten. Only one small criticism, was that the room was quite cold, other than that no complaints at all.

                                            We stopped for one night after a day of driving, we needed to chill out and wind down. This was really easy, we were made to feel very welcome, the room was really nice, spacious and warm and very clean. We had an evening meal and a cooked breakfast and both were excellent as was the service by all. We will put this hotel on our favourite list and hope to stay again.

                                            Very good as always, at the Congresbury Arms. Bit disappointed with the change of menu and the choice of Gluten free food. Very limited choice - the only thing I could eat was the fish and chips, and it was very good, but something I would not normally choose. The only gluten free choice on the menu was ice cream, but when I asked if there was anything the chef could do, I ordered sticky toffee pudding and ice cream, which was absolutely fab.

                                            Great service, lovely food and staff were very friendly. Only thing that was slightly disappointing was the beef fillet which was a little undercooked.

                                            We went for a meal with family that we hadn’t seen for years. The service and food was fantastic and everyone was pleased with their choice. I would recommend the Congresbury Arms to anyone looking for tasty, delicious and well presented food at a reasonable price.

                                            There were a few items unavailable on the menu, we had to wait quite some time for our food and then one of my friends had an under cooked meal and another friend had cold food.... disappointing as we had been there previously for a Sunday lunch and it was lovely

                                            A warm welcome and a really nice setting, but our scallops starter was a bit disappointing, tasty but small, then we waited over 45 minutes for mains which again were a bit disappointing to be honest. We’ve had some great food while in the area but sadly won’t be back to the Congresbury Arms in a hurry.

                                            This was our first visit to The Congresbury Arms. We received a very warm welcome and the service was both very efficient and charming. The tables are spaced apart and all of the staff were wearing masks, which I think is reassuring at this very difficult time. I ordered the torched mackerel for my starter and my main course was pheasant wrapped in prosciutto. Both were wonderful. My husband had the broccoli soup and the Oxtail and ale pie and he said both were delicious. The menu has a wide range of choices to suit everyone’s taste. The decor is fresh and modern and the dining room is cozy and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and will look forward to our next visit.

                                            Cannot fault. My partner and I visited this beautiful place last week on the last day of our holiday. My partner is a restaurant owner and chef, so can be very critical - however I have never heard him be so complimentary! Beautiful food, and run so well, the manager should be so proud. Excellent place, just wish we didn't live 200 miles away otherwise I would be there every week! Well done :)

                                            Sadly, this restaurant has gone downhill since I first started going there two years ago. Gone are the vegetarian and vegan menus, the early evening menus, and additionally the standard of the food is nothing like it was. Yes the prices increase. Last night I ordered the crispy beef starter which I'd loved only a few weeks ago. Then it was served in a large bowl with plenty of cashew nuts, now served on a small side plate with a few peanuts added. My friend's fish and chips was mainly batter - and at £17 is way overpriced. She had to get the attention of the waiting staff to ask for vinegar and mayo, instead of being offered these - and they took quite some time to arrive. I feel sure Covid will be blamed but plenty of other places are up to speed. They also started to strip tables around us at 8.30 and we had to find someone when we arrived so didn't feel like we were made welcome. Such a shame because it has been lovely in the past. I'm (was) a regular but will give it a miss in the future.

                                            Had a lovely Sunday lunch at the Congresbury Arms, beautiful food, nicely presented. I had the chicken (very nice), two of our party had the beef (very impressed) and one had the pork (also very good, perhaps a bit more crackling needed!). Table service throughout.

                                            Great place to eat. Clean and professional. Good service and didn't have to chase any staff with the feeling of being forgotten.

                                            One night stay breaking the journey to Cornwall, lovely friendly staff, spotlessly clean room with nice touches, nuts and jelly beans, evening meal was beautifully and great breakfast, highly recommended.

                                            This restaurant is enjoying a growing local reputation and it delivered what we expected. We had a helpful and courteous reception, the menu was interesting and the setting understated and stylish. Personally we're omnivorous and were a little surprised that our guests who were vegetarian had only one choice of either starter or main course (in a modern restaurant in these times!), though they enjoyed the vegetarian meal they had - as did we our meat and fish selections. The 'amuse bouche' was welcome as were the petits fours which came with the bill. We asked for the volume of the ambient music to be turned down a little as we were close to a speaker, and the staff member obliged immediately. Overall we were well entertained and will continue to go there both as a couple and when entertaining guests

                                            Great experience. I will be definitely back. It was a catch up lunch with my friend and colleague and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The interior is lovely and spacious and light. Still some COVID measures in place which is good and reassuring to see. Making our reservation was very straightforward. The food quality was great as was the presentation. The only slight personal comment…..my peppercorn sauce was slightly too runny. That might be just my personal preference. I had steak with was done exactly to my liking and my friend had salmon. We both really enjoyed both the food and the service.

                                            I had scallops to start followed by a pork roast dinner. Loved both. Roasts are normally poor quality but l loved the food here and would definitely recommend it. My husband had mushrooms in a cream sauce to start followed by fish and chips. Both went down a treat. Excellent customer service throughout especially the gentleman at the door who wished us happy wedding anniversary.
