good menu choices and excellent flavours and amazing presentation, but portions are small, not enough to feed a hungry adult man or woman for that matter. All staff are very friendly and professional and restaurant has a lovely calm atmosphere.

We had dinner here very recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff are really very good (always helpful and polite and friendly too, just the right mix to feel comfortable but looked after as well).There was plenty of fish on the menu (as we would expect) and we weren't disappointed. I thought it was reasonable value although it wasn't cheap,... More

Lovely restaurant without being over the top. Food fantastic you can have the full a la carte or eat within a budget it all served fresh and hot by great staff. Nothing is rushed so no stress but that doesn't mean you are waiting for your meal as they appear to time everything perfectly. Excellent.

We ate in the Brace whilst staying in Raithwaite Hall. The food was good - parts of the meal were very good but it was expensive for what we got and certainly not fine dining. We were given the impression that food in the Brace would be excellent but when fish is a bit overcooked, spinach is salty and a... More

A good choice menu with food perfectly cooked and served by staff who take pride in their work. The restaurant is well designed and spacious and tables are nicely spaced. Well recommended

If you want to pay through the nose for mediocre food and £38 for a bottle of very average wine this is the place for you. The food and wine bill was £295 for 4. The portions were tiny, the smallest servings we have ever seen with very expensive prices. No atmosphere, was like dining in someone's home. No cloths,... More

The food is very good and all the good points stop here. The place lacks any soul. Tiled floor,no curtains,terrible music. Poor staff, could not even set the table properly( but I put that down to the management for lack of training.) Not made to feel welcome and what we hoped to be a wonderful night turned out to be...

Good food and service, plenty of choice at breakfast but ensure you tick that option when you book otherwise it is expensive as you will pay full price for it.

Ambiance and food was superb! The best beef bourginon I have ever tasted! Average price for a good quality meal. Definitely worth a visit for a special occasion.

My wife and I ate here whilst staying at the cottages on the estate. We were seated in the main room overlooking the courtyard to the front of the hotel. There seemed to be a another seating area in a conservatory to the rear which promised better surroundings. The menu offered pretty standard fare and we opted for the Chateaubriand... More
