    The main restaurant is a gorgeous setting for a romantic meal. It has an excellent menu with plenty of choice. Food quality is easily as good as any top restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed both main courses. Desserts looked amazing and tasted so good. All boxes were ticked as food presentation was excellent. Portion size is excellent, with food tasting so good you are guaranteed to go back.

    Overall very enjoyable meal, there were 3 of us, 2 of us had wild boar scotch egg to start, can’t fault them, excellent. For mains the venison steak was excellent , very tender, pork loin was great though the fondant potato could have used a few minutes more cooking, the trout was very good but the polenta was bland. Desserts were OK, crème brûlée was a little bitter, over torched topping, the sticky toffee pudding was a great success. Service was excellent and unobtrusive.

    We both had the chicken, good job I wasn't very hungry, not so good for my husband! Tasted OK but the portion size was laughable. A quarter of a small chicken, 4 of the smallest carrots known to man, and a Mr Kipling cake slice of potato. All for £18!

    We sat in the lounge as we had our pooch with us. The lounge has a nice atmosphere and was a great place to sit with no pressure when eating with a toddler. Beef brisket burger was delicious. Portions are big so can't complain.

    The fish was fairly small amount for the price and some of the artichoke was very chewy. The steak was excellent but the sticky toffee pudding was dry and the sauce was sparse. Overall quite expensive for what there was.

    Lovely service, nice gardens and some tables have a lovely view onto those gardens. The food was a little underwhelming for the price, especially noted was the Sunday roast vegetarian option which was wellington, which two of our party had and didn’t think it was very tasty.

    Stand out for me both dinner and breakfast was the service. Excellent and rarely seen from such ‘young’ staff these days. Well done. My dinner was excellent.. the Sancerre delightful and the cheeseboard excellent. The breakfast was 11/10… Reception gets an honourable mention too. One minor .. Selection of channels on tv a bit restricted.. Would I return .. Definitely. 👏👏👏

    Had Sunday lunch at Stratton House. We have been a few times for various things and really like the hotel and ambience. The serving staff are lovely and very helpful. One server's shirt was very dirty! But otherwise they are all very polite and efficient. The set course menu on website (3 courses for X, 2 courses for X) is no longer available, and IMO this shouldn't be advertised on the website if that's the case. This made the £20 roast not as great value for money we thought - however, the vegetables were lovely and a good selection. We didn't like the choice of starters so passed, but the dessert choice was fair and our dessert were lovely. The sticky toffee pudding was supposed to come with toffee ice-cream but weirdly came with raspberry ripple because toffee was sold out! Upon asking, other choices would have been vanilla or salted caramel which was a much better choice - so this was a bit of a confusion to us - however, the server happily brought out this. My "soda and lime" was extremely expensive as 2 mini bottles needed for glass - I'd assumed it was on tap. £45 for the roast, a pud, 2 large soda/lime and a licquer coffee. Overall, we wouldn't return for the Sunday lunch, but do enjoy the food and atmosphere there, so would have afternoon tea or other meals/coffee etc.

    I love the spaces inside Stratton House. 3 of us went for a ‘light bite’ and sat in the lounge in comfy armchairs. However I had a dish which I have had in the past - crushed avocado with (2) poached eggs on sourdough with harissa. There was about a tablespoon of avocado. This cost £11.50. I know everything has gone up but really it’s far too expensive
