The service was very good but the roast was poor. Half a pale chicken arrived on pale roast potatoes with very thin gravy and the plates were cold hence the food being cold. My partner had roast beef and no horse radish was offered.
Desert was good.

Our meal both main course, one dessert and one cheese platter was absolutely outstanding. Not only delicious food but also beautifully and artistically presented. We enjoyed the bottle of Cotswold white wine. The restaurant is very nice inside and the service was excellent. The bill for two was only £77 which included the wine at £29 which was fantastic value for a special meal out.

Not a big choice but what’s on offer was very tempting had the crab meat to start delicious the ribeye a little dry and over cooked but still tasty. The cheese board was exceptional couldn’t finish it. Would go again.

The place is amazing and the service too, very friendly and attentive. The starter and dessert were incredible! However, we had a big disappointment with the steak that wasn't high quality like we expected from this place and wasn't worth £25.

We went for my partner's birthday, I did a request on my booking through OpenTable if a birthday message could be written on the dessert plate but they didn't, I guess they maybe didn't receive the notification from OpenTable, I should have maybe asked there directly.

It was a bit noisy only because a big group of 3 tables was there that night, I am sure on another night it wouldn't be the case. Also, the waitress asked us if we wanted to move to the other room so it is less noisy, the staff was really nice and attentive.

I will still definitely recommend this place, it is lovely but I will recommend not to choose the steak or for the restaurant to find better quality meat or lower the price on this dish. I loved the choice of wine too.

Lovely lunch. Chicken Caesar salad is fab. Don’t ever take it off the menu. We sat inside as it was raining, but had a table overlooking the beautiful garden. Couldn’t fault a thing.

Gorgeous food. A really wonderful meal, but just felt that the staff were rushing us. I didn't really want a dessert menu pushed into my hand whilst the plates from the main course were being cleared away. The staff seemed to have an average age of 16, so some training might benefit them.

Beautiful food with great portions. But service was very slow and took a long time to receive orders. We were also charged for a new drink following a wasp flying into the room and landing in it, even when told the server would change it when explained what happened. A small annoyance, but overall was a lovely meal.

Not a huge menu but catered for most tastes, could do with a few more on the starter option though.
I had ray wing for the first time ever, it was enormous and very well presented. Tasty sauce with it.
Desert menu also very limited.
Service was very prompt and the young waiters and waitresses were very polite. Overpriced wine but that would be the same anywhere I guess.
Overall a pleasant meal.

Went for a girls lunch on Monday. Sat in the garden which was lovely except for the lawn being mowed but I guess that has to be done to keep it looking good but the service from Andrew was lovely, the menu had so many nice things we had difficulty choosing and when the food arrived it lived up to our expectations being super tasty and good sized portions . We had a real treat with some delicious Woodchester wine. Nice to see local produce on the menu. All in all would definitely recommend and look forward to returning

Had my meal been excellent I would have awarded much higher stars but unfortunately my chicken dish was spoilt by the tremendous amount of salt and ground black pepper on the very large portion of fries on which it sat. It would have been more palatable if served with a light salad and about three quarter less fries. Having said that, my husband's meal was topnotch as were our desserts. Coffee in the lounge was lovely. The staff were delightful and efficient. I did not return my meal as we were celebrating a special anniversary and I did not wish to spoil the moment. We thought the ambience of the hotel was super. We hope to return in the future.

Recommended by a family friend we had Sunday Roast which was well presented, ample portions, fresh veg and succulent Lamb (2 diners) and Beef (2 diners)
Excellent all round with attentive waiting staff
Meeting with a lifelong friend after 10 months made the choice of setting perfect
Thank You Stratton House Hotel

Went there for date night, and we loved it. The food was delicious (had the hand picked crab starter, the best I’ve had in the UK), the wine is nice and fairly priced, the ingredients come from local producers.
Although the setting isn't very intimate for a romantic date night, we sat in the beautifully calm garden as the sun was setting and we had a great evening.
Luke, our waiter, was very friendly and went out of his way to help, and he would have made the evening had the food been disappointing, which it wasn’t.
To top it up, it is surrounded by beautiful fields if you feel like going for a walk post meal.
100% would recommend!

Lovely staff that was always at hand, I had flat iron chicken which was over seasoned and black at one end. The children had fish goujons and chips and peas which made them sick that evening, I did have my suspicion about the fish as it did smell off, chips and onion rings was cooked in old cooking oil, the grounds needs a maintenance team in, hope they turn this place around as all lovely people there.

Lovely garden although there is some building work which is due to be finished in the next week. But will be worth it as the hotel is adding a spa. It was a chilly evening but we were kept warm with the outdoor heating. Lovely first evening out with friends since lockdown. The service and food was excellent which made to a very special evening reuniting with friends and catching up. Thankyou to all the staff at Stratton hotel.
