Came for a new years eve lunch and the food was outstanding - best cod i have tasted in a long time - wonderful standard of cooking and taste.
They also catered for our 2 kids without resorting to the usual kids menu items

Service was friendly and professional - just the right balance

We had to head off quickly elsewhere but would have loved to have stayed longer for a leisurely extended afternoon

Definitely will be back

Overall a good experience. Restaurant was very quite apart from the awful music play list probably the worst I have heard in a restaurant.
Food was good but a little over salted for my pallet. Service was very good. Wine was good what we chose.
Good value for what we paid.

In terms of value for money for a Christmas Day lunch, this was a very poor experience. The food was good but far from exceptional and hardly plentiful. The general atmosphere in the restaurant was just dull. The service was poor. After we ordered, our first course arrived in about 20 mins. It then took almost an hour and 20 minutes for the next course to arrive, and then only after we complained and threatened to leave. The seating arrangements were poor too. Five of us were cramped onto a very modestly sized table. At £250 per person (not including drinks) I think it reasonable to expect a great deal more. This restaurant seems to set its prices based on location, rather than quality of experience. A very disappointing Christmas lunch.

We went for Christmas dinner and the food was very average (and a couple of bits worse than average, such as overcooked fish and a dry canelé). They charge more than double the Michelin star restaurants I’ve been to in London, but the food is nowhere near as good or as interesting. The service was pretty bad. We had to remind waiters to top up our wine, for example. (If there aren’t enough staff top up the wine, don’t put the wine bucket far from the table.) In short, this was the worst value meal that I’ve ever had.

Disappointed, booked for breakfast on Christmas Eve. Nothing on any web site or opentable stated times for the breakfast service, so we booked for 10.15am expecting a wonderful relaxing start to Christmas. On arrival slightly late at 10.20am having phoned the restaurant & explained that our train was delayed it was a complete shock to be told as a “reminder” that the kitchen stopped cooking at 10.30am. Had we known this we would have not chosen this venue. We opted for the full experience including the buffet. At no point when ordering we’re we told that the buffet would also be cleared away shortly. We had to actually ask to be served coffee? It was not offered? We had expected a special breakfast for £35 a head not a lacklustre hotel experience. We didn’t complain at any point because we didn’t want to spoil our “treat?” but the final straw was after paying the bill including 12.5% service charge no one bothered to say thank you or acknowledge us as we left the restaurant. Never felt less like a valued customer in any London Restaurant.

The food here is always of the highest quality. The ingredients are all cooked beautifully and although the food is based around classic ideas, everything is just spot on and turned up to number 11! The desserts are all to die for (we had one of every dessert!). The staff are attentive and Anthony the owner/chef often walks around for a chat, which really makes the whole thing feel very personal

Dissappointed welcoming services was good but stark bumpy wood tables atmosphere and food was very average. Lamb was undercooked a 3cm cut good size, but a good teaspoon of blood when cut dessert was bland, a big plate edge of tart and nothing fish was tasty but veg bland. £126 no wine no starter not the food or presentational experience we hoped for.

Tremendous food in a lovely environment. Perhaps not as ornate as Michelin starred restaurants, but that’s not a bad thing! The wine pairing was excellent, and the English custard tart was an absolute knockout! We were just missing the pig’s head!

The four of us all had the three course lunch menu ( £35) which was excellent . Wines were a fair price and good range . Good service . Restaurant took a while to fill up in these uncertain times which made it a bit quiet at first .

Very good . Would certainly go back .

Unfortunately I have had to take to giving Wild Honey a poor review as when I emailed them to explain that I wasn’t impressed with their timings - taking bookings at 10:15 but starting to clear the continental breakfast at 10:30, making you order hot food by 10:30 before the kitchen closed, they have chosen not to respond, despite me following up twice.

Fantastic tasting menu. Everything was spot on.

Only feedback. The room was very hot. I only had a shirt on but was sweating by the end of the meal. The wine list is very expensive. Not much on offer in the value / mid price range.

Dining at Wild Honey was a absolute treat. It was our first time and we weren't disappointed. Professional service, very pleasant and comfortable airy restaurant with good spacing between tables and low noise level. Delicious food - all 3 courses, including beautifully-cooked venison for my mains. I definitely look forward to introducing more friends to this restaurant. Don't be deterred by the fact that it's within a hotel.
