We ate here on 1st January for dinner. The set menu was excellent and priced well. Food was top quality and service very good. The restaurant was busy, but we still had enough privacy for dinner for two. A most enjoyable evening and we will dine here again in the future.

Normally service and ambience are top rate but a wedding was being held in the hotel and they took over. The bride and groom blocked the doorway to get photos taken and the wedding party over ran the bar. This resulted in very slow service from the bar. Staff were very apologetic but having them hoover round you is not condusive to a relaxing lunch. Food was the usual high standard but surely some seperation from the wedding party would have meant other diners like myself enjoying ourselves too

On arrival I could see that the place was really busy so was not expecting our meal to be a bit great. Although it was more than a bit noisy in the bar on arrival we were sitting reasonably far up the restaurant so it was not too much of an issue. I was very pleased to find that not only was the meal excellent but the service was also. Thank you to Colessio for a lovely night out

Service was up there with the best i have ever had. Food was lovely and the only complaint i had was the steak. I ordered a medium and was served a lovely but well done fillet. After pointing this out i recieved an apology and the steak was removed from the bill. Everything else we had was top notch. The staff were incredible and the ambience was lovely. First visit but certainly not my last

Went to celebrate Son-in law to be's birthday. Service was very slow. We were give a little alcove that was cold, drafty and difficult to converse due to loud music blaring on the ceiling. Have been for Sunday lunch twice before and really liked it, but not this trip. Place was not busy to start but service still very slow. Won't be using it for a function again.

Unfortunately we had a very poor experience here when we visited for lunch on Saturday, which is contrary to previous experiences. The staff were confused over what cocktails we could or could not have in the end (the special lunch menu listed some cocktails at a certain price which we ordered, to then be told they weren't on offer anymore at that price and would be more expensive, which was ok with us; but then we were told 5 mins later by the manager that we couldn't have them at all and we had to look at the main cocktail menu!!)
Our lunch arrived and 2 out of 3 starters were not cooked all the way through so had to be returned to be re-cooked which took another 15 mins. When our mains eventually arrived, they were cold as well!!! I couldn't believe it! It was so disappointing. We have visited before and the food was lovely. My friend and her husband on a different table had a lovely meal contrary to our experience. I put our disastrous experience down to the fact that a wedding had just started and the kitchen must have been overloaded cooking all the canapes for that - the canapes looked delicious!! The place is lovely, so it was just a pity we had a bad experience. I won't let it put me off though as previous visits have been good.

Am sorry to say it was very disappointing. Had heard excellent things about Collesio but for the amount of money was disappointing. Both had steak, both overcooked. There was a wedding reception in, and the noise was very loud with the music and guests when our table was close by.

Very busy to start with but quietened down by 5.30 pm, nice to see a manager in the dining room organising things,could not have been more helpful to our party of six,bar staff were very good and enjoyed a chat with customers and advised on very good whisky.
If I were to be picky and complain we ALL would have liked our food served on plates,NOT wooden boards but this in no way detracted from the quality of the food which was very high.The menu is compact but varied, just as we like it all cooked to order and fresh

Sun 9th October Dinner for two - first course cold, item on second course cold, wrong sweet brought to table. We both ate our food at separate times very disappointing. Next morning ordered toast and coffee - toast was cold. The other order was a full breakfast, sausage was cold other items hot - unbelievable!

Hotel was very friendly and welcoming. The food at dinner was fantastic however at breakfast the following morning there was a very rude guest on her mobile having a long conversation that everyone in the restaurant could hear. It slightly put me off my breakfast however the staff were lovely as was the choice of food. We were celebrating our anniversary and arrived to 2 glasses of fizz and roses in our room. Lovely touch and very thoughtful. Would definitely stay again! Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.

I booked an afternoon tea for six people to celebrate my birthday and it turned out to be an event to remember. Everything was brilliant! The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was excellent with a lot of choice and every one left with satisfied tummies. This was the best afternoon tea I have ever experienced and I would not hesitate to book for future events. I cannot recommend it enough. It was an affordable five star experience, well worth the money. Thank you!

Booked the Grill room for a special occasion dinner. We all loved the decor and the atmosphere was nice, not too busy or noisy. The restaurant seemed well staffed and they were attentive on our arrival. We were shown to our table quickly and the food and drinks order were taken almost immediately. We liked the menu choices and the food was good and well presented. We were disappointed that it took over an hour for the main courses to arrive and then one of the waitresses accidentally spilled a drink over one of us. We were determined not to let a couple of blips spoil our night and didn't make a fuss. Unfortunately the service went downhill rapidly after that. It took 35mins and repeated requests to receive a soft drink and then no-one came to clear away plates for ages and when they did they didn't come back with the dessert menu. There were staff present but they were standing around chatting to each other. I had to leave the table to ask another waitress for a menu which she eventually brought but then didn't return to take the order. That was the last straw! It was nearly 11pm and we'd been there almost 2 hours 30 mins. I complained about the service and they did discount a few side orders for our trouble.

We have dined here on many occasions and normally it does not disappoint. The food was hit or miss on this visit - burgers were great but the venison was very over cooked ( despite being asked if it was ok to serve pink!) Desserts were not as nice as their description and took so long to come that we were offered a free coffee - would have been nice but also took so long to come we did not have time to drink it.
Hopefully this was a one off and normal high standards will be back next time we visit .
