    Great venue, service was exceptional especially our waitress in the restaurant. Fabulous food and willing to mix things up a bit from the menu, this was a real bonus! Nice quiet location , great atmosphere and rooms very clean.

    This location is very nice and sets a good feel for the experience. Throughout the food was of a good standard however the service was very poor. We visited 1330 on a Friday. The place was ticking over but did not have a large number of tables sat. The wait for our starters was approx 20 mins - more than acceptable for a relaxed Friday lunch. The wait between finishing starters and receiving our main course was over 35 minutes and that was only because I got up from the table to search out one of the wait staff and ask for the food. Upon the food arriving no apology or acknowledgement of the situation was forthcoming. By this point we had also finished the drinks and water we initially ordered, throughout the meal no one asked if we would like more drinks and eventually my wife had to flag down one of the wait staff for some more water. After we paid (service was included and I chose not to make an issue of it as it was my wife’s birthday)my wife said goodbye to both the wait staff and the manager as we left, neither even looked up let alone acknowledged her. Very poor for such a venue. Overall, great location, good food, very poor service which ruined the experience.

    Reliably good and in a beautiful woodland setting. The muntjak mini kebabs starter were a bit of a disappointment as they could have been made from virtually any meat. But the chicken schnitzel Holstein and accompanying fries and broccoli were excellent and well cooked. Service is pleasant and efficient and the dining room is very cosy. Above all, three courses, a bottle of Chardonnay, couple of pre-lunch drinks and a coffee came to a very reasonable £141.85 including service - excellent value for money.

    Although it was Sunday lunch and we understood it would be busy, the service wasn’t great. We waited an hour for our roasts after we had to remind them of a missing starter. Finally, we asked for dessert whereby 1 was missed because the waiter missed it.

    What a hidden gem - often that phrase is used, but rarely justified. But this genuinely was the most lovely place to stay and eat - the gardens look immulcate, even though the weather did not encourage us to sit out. The rooms were so tasteful with every thought put into their decoration - the staff were so lovely, helpful, enthusiastic, and loved their jobs - and the food was to die for. Cant recommend this highly enough, and was a lovely end to our day out at Highclere. All dogs were very well behaved in the restaurant, and did hear one bark, which is a credit both to the dogs and their owners.

    This is one of our favourite local eateries and is often the go-to option for a nice meal out. A lovely pub/restaurant with an ever-changing menu full of delicious choices. Our most recent visit was a rare miss, unfortunately. Service was slow (waited ages before even getting the chance to order drinks). One of our main courses was missing (there were only two of us!) and service was generally not great. I’m very willing to put this down to bad luck, a rare off night. Have been here loads in the past and it’s usually and easy four or five out of five. Certainly not put off from coming back again in the future.

    Really good food - even on a Monday lunchtime. The specials tempura prawns and T-bone steak were very good - except that the steak, which was billed as being for two people, was really only enough for one person. In addition, it was only about half an inch thick so could not really be cooked rare - as we wanted it. Service excellent, good wine list at reasonable prices and certainly worth a visit.

    The food for the adults was delicious as was the ambience. Our granddaughter was not so enthusiastic. She is definitely not a fussy eater but didn't like the sausages and gravy nor the dark chocolate in the cookie!! However, the meal was for an upcoming 40th so the Happy Birthday plate was much appreciated, 😊

    It's all about the details. From the carpark, the building looks stunning. When you enter, the decor looks pleasing to the eye. The spaces are well-presented and put together. We were acknowledged at the door as staff passed us by. We were taken to our table, which was ready and inviting. The menu was typical of a country pile on a Sunday. (Roasts) The wine list had options for all tastes and budgets, as well as a well-stocked/priced fine wine list. The food was well-presented, very tasty, and well-priced. The service was exceptional. It was our first time, but not our last. A great little find. Bravo!

    The staff were excellent as was the food and drink. The room was excellent with all the facilities one would require. The only minor issues were the green emergency light above the bed which was extremely bright, therefore not conducive to easily going to sleep, and the bathroom was exceptionally hot. Apart from these two very minor issues we had an excellent experience.
