    Since the recent refurbishment this place looks and feels fantastic. The food was lovely and the service was great. My Dad has mobility issues and the new disabled access was perfect. We had lunch but others were having afternoon teas which looked amazing. There is outside seating if the weather is nice. I would definitely recommend.

    Lovely afternoon tea, but we both felt that more finger sandwiches than rolls, thought the rolls are a bit filling, and disappointed with the jam.

    I enjoyed my solo lunch at Wear Park Restaurant. It is a comfortable dining room with an interesting mix of customers. The view overlooking the grounds of the Country Club is particularly special on a summer's day. The service was good - polite, friendly and efficient. The food offering was well presented, good quality using mainly "healthy" ingredients. I enjoyed the salt and pepper squid starter and the monk fish with vegetables main course. The summer pudding was good too, if a little sweet. The wine list was well priced and well chosen. I will eat there again and probably take others with me next time. In summary, a good value, reliable eatery. I recommend you try it.

    We arrived 20 mins early for a pre lunch drink and the waitress Paulina took our food order but regretably 30 mins after being shown to our table Starters had still not arrived. When prompted waiter Bernardo agreed to sort this out but it still took another 20 mins. Apparently our Order had gone missing but obviously found again as they knew what food we had ordered. Bernardo did his very best to make amends and reduced our final bill by about 20% and also told us that Manager Luke had been informed but we ver saw him before we left.

    The new restaurant had an empty feel about it( a bit like a school hall) Maybe they need a few more painting/pictures on the walls. The food wasn’t up to the usual quality. I found the gravy a bit watery and tasteless. I know the place has just been refurbished so maybe it’ll settle down . Service was good as usual.

    Wear Park Restaurant has just re-opened and we were keen to try it out as we frequently visited in the past as the food was excellent and good value. Sadly the food was not as good as we have enjoyed previously. . We both had monkfish tail with fine beans,rainbow chard,roasted heritage carrot and gremolata sauce (£18] -the fish was excellent and well cooked, however, the beans were beyond a dente and were just uncooked, the gremolata just got stuck in one’s teeth and the heritage carrot was tough. Dessert was warmed chocolate brownie with ice cream and was well cooked and enjoyable. Waiting staff were friendly and welcoming and we could not fault them, but the food was disappointing. I look forward to reading better views before we decide to return.

    We just enjoy the ambience of this place, the fact that it seems a bit special with the white tablecloths, napkins, service and chandeliers. Lovely to go somewhere which isn't just ordinary. Service was good and the food was better than we had expected. Understand the whole place is going to be refurbished so really hoping it's not at the expense of making it better than so many other places. We need places which feel as a treat to go out to.

Friendly knowledgeable and happy staff have made each of our visit memorable. Yesterday a particular mention to Emma. She was super sweet, recognized us from the Thai dinner and recommended us to try out the breakfast at the sports bar downstairs. Can’t wait to be back! Cindy He and David Barrett

    The Golf Club Steak Night was excellent. Good menu, with a good choice for all three courses. Steaks (3) perfectly cooked . The three of us had different requests - rare, medium, and medium to well done. The house wine (red) just right. Staff very welcoming and on the ball. Clearly a very popular event because all tables were taken, including some large parties. The noise level was very acceptable.

Some subtle lighting might be useful Decor is very traditional and dated Needs updating I feel However that being said we enjoyed the meal but did not want to linger as it was all a but clinical which is a shame as the food was very good
